Advances in molecular marker techniques and their applications in plant sciences
A new class of advanced marker techniques has emerged, primarily derived from combination of earlier basic techniques, thereby revealing genetic variation through increased genome coverage. Expand
Production of heterologous proteins in plants: strategies for optimal expression.
The present review will evaluate the rate limiting steps of plant expression systems and suggest strategies to optimize protein expression at each of the steps: gene integration, transcription, translation and protein accumulation. Expand
Plant genomic DNA isolation: An art or a science
The present review is an update of various methods used for plant genomic DNA isolation, and it epitomizes the various problems faced and the solutions made to contend with them during DNA isolation from plant cells. Expand
Pharmacogenetic variation at CYP2C9, CYP2C19, and CYP2D6 at global and microgeographic scales
Altered activity variants of CYP2C9, CYP 2C19, and CYP1D6 occur globally in all geographic regions, reaching extremely high frequencies in some populations and several geographic regions of pharmacogenetic interest are still poorly characterized. Expand
Search for antibacterial and antifungal agents from selected Indian medicinal plants.
A series of 61 Indian medicinal plants belonging to 33 different families used in various infectious disorders, were screened for their antimicrobial properties. Screening was carried out at 1000 andExpand
Expression systems for production of heterologous proteins
In this review a variety of available expression host sy stems are evaluated for heterologous production of proteins and factors affecting the stability and expression of heterologueous genes are also discussed. Expand
Cellular functions of ascorbic acid.

  • 1 October 1990
The role of ascorbate as a reductant in these enzymatic reactions complements its other antioxidant functions, including that as a scavenger of free radicals. Expand

  • 1 March 1991
It is apparent that ascorbic acid does not directly participate in enzyme-catalyzed conversion of substrate to product, but the vitamin regenerates prosthetic metal ions in these enzymes in their required reduced forms, in agreement with other antioxidant functions of vitamin C, e.g., scavenging of free radicals.

A post-lysosomal compartment in Dictyostelium discoideum.
Results suggest that, in Dictyostelium, undigested endocytic cargo accumulates in and is returned to the cell surface through a distinctive compartment of large and nearly neutral post-lysosomal vacuoles. Expand
Cathepsins: fundamental effectors of endolysosomal proteolysis.
  • Sonia Guha, H. Padh
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Indian journal of biochemistry & biophysics
  • 1 April 2008
The review outlines the structural association and function(s) of major endolysosomal cathepsins and indicates that extra-lysosomal proteolytic machinery within the endocytic pathway enjoys spatial and temporal control over proteolysis functions. Expand
