Plants like Arabidopsis thaliana are convenient model systems to study fundamental questions related to regulation of the stress transcriptome in response to stress challenges. Microarray results of the Arabidopsis transcriptome indicate that several genes could be upregulated during multiple stresses. High-salinity, drought, and low temperature are three(More)
RNAi is a naturally occurring, highly conserved phenomenon of RNA mediated gene silencing among the multicellular organisms. Currently, RNAi has been successfully applied in functional genomics, therapeutics and new drug target identification in mammals and other eukaryotes. The uniqueness lies in sequence specific gene knock down which made RNAi an(More)
The canonical Wnt cascade has emerged as a critical regulator of cancer cells. Activation of the Wnt signaling pathway has also been associated with stem cell, thus raising the possibility of its role in embryogenesis and in the proliferation of malignant cancer cells. Wnt pathway has been reported to be involved in normal physiological processes in adult(More)
The nucleocapsid (N) protein of Chandipura virus (CHPV) plays a crucial role in viral life cycle, besides being an important structural component of the virion through proper organization of its interactions with other viral proteins. In a recent study, the authors had mapped the associations among CHPV proteins and shown that N protein interacts with four(More)
— Recently there has been considerable interest in applying evolutionary and natural computing techniques for analysing large datasets with large number of features. In particular, efficacy prediction of siRNA has attracted a lot of researchers, because of large number of features involved. In the present work, we have applied the SVM based classifier along(More)
The degradation of intracellular proteins is targeted by ubiquitin via non-lysosomal proteolytic pathway in the cell system. These ubiquitin molecules have been found to be conserved from yeast to humans. Ubiquitin proteasome machinery utilises ATP and other mechanisms for degrading proteins of cytosol as well as nucleus. This process of ubiquitination is(More)
Genomic sequence data are often available well before the annotated sequence is published. We present a method for analysis of genomic DNA to identify coding sequences using the GeneScan algorithm and characterize these resultant sequences by BLAST. The routines are used to develop a system for automated annotation of genome DNA sequences.
The immunosuppressive individuals are highly prone to get afflicted with invasive opportunistic fungal infections such as Candidiasis, Aspergillosis, Histoplasmosis, Coccidioidomycosis, Blastomycosis, Penicilliosis, Cryptococcosis and Zygomycosis which are becoming a cause of concern to the mankind due to their high morbidity and mortality rates. The(More)
The lack of complete treatments and appearance of multiple drug-resistance strains of Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) are causing an increased risk of lung infections in cystic fibrosis patients. Bcc infection is a big risk to human health and demands an urgent need to identify new therapeutics against these bacteria. Network biology has emerged as one(More)
