The paper presents a mathematical model based on the features of antigen-antibody bindings in the immune system. In the natural immune system, local binding of immune cells and molecules to antigenic peptides is based generally on the behavior of surface proteins. In particular, immune cells contain proteins on their receptors, and apparently, these(More)
UNLABELLED We present the development of a Comprehensive database of 12 076 invariant Peptide Signatures (CoPS) derived from 52 bacterial genomes with a minimum occurrence in at least seven organisms. These peptides were observed in functionally similar proteins and are distributed over nearly 1250 different functional proteins. The database provides(More)
Rsd (regulator of sigma D) is an anti-sigma factor for the Escherichia coli RNA polymerase sigma(70) subunit. The contact site of Rsd on sigma(70) was analyzed after mapping of the contact-dependent cleavage sites by Rsd-tethered iron-p-bromoacetamidobenzyl EDTA and by analysis of the complex formation between Ala-substituted sigma(70) and Rsd. Results(More)
BACKGROUND Global regulatory mechanisms involving chromatin assembly and remodelling in the promoter regions of genes is implicated in eukaryotic transcription control especially for genes subjected to spatial and temporal regulation. The potential to utilise global regulatory mechanisms for controlling gene expression might depend upon the architecture of(More)
Benign pathologies demonstrated after a Whipple's resection (pancreatoduodenectomy) for pancreatic and peri-ampullary lesions are relatively uncommon. Here we report two cases where a Whipple's procedure was undertaken for suspected pancreaticobiliary cancer and where the final histology revealed, in each case, a rare benign lesion. The first case confirmed(More)
Absence of any regular structure is increasingly being observed in structural studies of proteins. These disordered regions or random coils, which have been observed under physiological conditions, are indicators of protein plasticity. The wide variety of interactions possible due to the flexibility of these 'natively disordered' regions confers functional(More)
In this study, 52 patients were studied to elucidate the relative impact of resection of localized pancreaticobiliary adenocarcinoma (PBC) on circulating factors of tumour-associated angiogenesis e.g. tissue factor bearing microparticles (TFMP) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and their clinicopathological significance to angiogenesis markers(More)
