Glutamyl-queuosine-tRNA(Asp) synthetase (Glu-Q-RS) and glutamyl-tRNA synthetase (GluRS), differ widely by their function although they share close structural resemblance within their catalytic core of GluRS. In particular both Escherichia coli GluRS and Glu-Q-RS contain a single zinc-binding site in their putative tRNA acceptor stem-binding domain. It has(More)
Integrase Interactor 1 (INI1/hSNF5) is a component of the hSWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex. The INI1 gene is either deleted or mutated in rhabdoid cancers like ATRT (Atypical terratoid and rhabdoid tumor). INI1 is also a host factor for HIV-1 replication. INI1 binds DNA non-specifically. However, the mechanism of DNA binding and its biological role are(More)
E. coli Alanyl-tRNA synthetase (AlaRS) not only catalyzes tRNA charging but also can bind to its own promoter DNA sequence and repress its own transcription. It exists as a dimer in its native form and so far this is the only aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase whose full length structure is unresolved. Guanidine hydrochloride mediated unfolding of AlaRS has been(More)
The advent of Social Media has changed the way FMCG companies conduct their business. With nearly 45 million users in India and growing rapidly, social media’s popularity is making organizations to participate in social media to communicate with their customers and also encourage sales. By some estimates, social networking now accounts for 40 percent of all(More)
E. coli alanyl-tRNA exists as a dimer in its native form and the C-terminal coiled-coil part plays an important role in the dimerization process. The truncated N-terminal containing the first 700 amino acids (1-700) forms a monomeric variant possessing similar aminoacylation activity like wild type. A point mutation in the C-terminal domain (G674D) also(More)
