Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged as a significant nosocomial pathogen during the last few years, exhibiting resistance to almost all major classes of antibiotics. Alternative treatment options such as vaccines tend to be most promising and cost effective approaches against this resistant pathogen. In the current study, we have explored the pan-genome of(More)
The blood-brain barrier (BBB) poses a huge challenge and is a serious issue in deciphering the pathophysiology of central nervous system disorders. Endothelial tight junctions play an essential role in maintaining the integrity of the BBB. Post-translational modifications (PTMs) in endothelial tight junction proteins are known to cause deleterious(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a ubiquitous environmental bacterium responsible for a variety of infections in humans, as well as in animal hosts. While the evolution of virulence in P. aeruginosa strains isolated from chronic lung infection in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients has been extensively studied, the virulence phenotype of P. aeruginosa isolated from(More)
A new isolate of Trichoderma atroviride has been shown to grow on low rank coal as the sole carbon source. T. atroviride ES11 degrades ∼82% of particulate coal (10 g l−1) over a period of 21 days with 50% reduction in 6 days. Glucose (5 g l−1) as a supplemented carbon source enhanced the coal solubilisation efficiency of T. atroviride ES11, while 10 and 20(More)
We present some studies on the mechanisms of pathogenesis based on experimental work and on its interpretation through a mathematical model. Using a collection of clinical strains of the opportunistic human pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa, we performed co-culture experiments with Dictyostelium amoebae, to investigate the two organisms' interaction,(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the world's third most widespread cancer. Currently available circulating biomarkers for this silently progressing malignancy are not sufficiently specific and sensitive to meet all clinical needs. There is an imminent and pressing need for the identification of novel circulating biomarkers to increase disease-free survival(More)
Lysozyme, an antibacterial enzyme, was used as a stabilizing ligand for the synthesis of fairly uniform silver nanoparticles adopting various strategies. The synthesized particles were characterized using UV-visible spectroscopy, FTIR, dynamic light scattering (DLS), and TEM to observe their morphology and surface chemistry. The silver nanoparticles were(More)
Among solid tumors, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) emerges as a prototypical therapy-resistant tumor. Considering the emerging sorafenib resistance crisis in HCC, future studies are urgently required to overcome resistance. Recently noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) have emerged as significant regulators in signalling pathways involved in cancer drug resistance and(More)
The therapeutic efficacy of universal drug-delivery systems depends on their capability to escape the immune system by overcoming the biological barriers of the body and concentrate at target tissues to eradicate only diseased cells. Biologically synthesized nanoparticle systems possess almost all of these qualities and utilize their targeting ability(More)
