Plasmodium falciparum triose-phosphate isomerase, a homodimeric enzyme, contains four cysteine residues at positions 13, 126, 196, and 217 per subunit. Among these, Cys-13 is present at the dimer interface and is replaced by methionine in the corresponding human enzyme. We have investigated the effect of sulfhydryl labeling on the parasite enzyme, with a(More)
A mutation at the dimer interface of Plasmodium falciparum triosephosphate isomerase (PfTIM) was created by mutating a tyrosine residue at position 74, at the subunit interface, to glycine. Tyr74 is a critical residue, forming a part of an aromatic cluster at the interface. The resultant mutant, Y74G, was found to have considerably reduced stability(More)
Plasmodium falciparum triosephosphate isomerase (PfTIM) contains two tryptophan residues, W11 and W168. One is positioned in the interior of the protein, and the other is located on the active-site loop 6. Two single-tryptophan mutants, W11F and W168F, were constructed to evaluate the contributions of each chromophore to the fluorescence of the wild-type(More)
INDIA Absrrucr-Addressed is a technique for intelligent packet discard in routers, based on bandwidth or user-specified requests. We use the concept of active networks to process streamed MPEG video on a prototype active router. The video processing algorithm that runs on the active muter adapts to the available bandwidth and determines what packets are to(More)
A series of novel 6-fluoro1,4-dihydro-4-oxo-3-quinoline carboxylic acid dimers were synthesized as potential antibacterial agents from commercially available substituted fluorobenzoic acids. A stability indicating HPLC method was developed to determine these novel fluoroquinolone dimers using a systematic method development approach. Samples were subjected(More)
Triosephosphate isomerase (TIM) has been the subject of many structural and mechanistic studies. At position 96, there is a highly conserved Ser residue, which is proximal to the catalytic site. Thus far, no specific role has been ascribed to this residue. Plasmodium falciparum TIM (PfTIM), a fully catalytically active enzyme, is unique in possessing a Phe(More)
