Studies carried out till date to elucidate the pathways involved in HIV-1-induced T-cell depletion has revealed that apoptosis underlie the etiology, however, a clear molecular understanding of HIV-1-induced apoptosis has remained elusive. Although evidences pointing towards the importance of mitochondrial energy generating system in apoptosis exist but(More)
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) Nef protein is now regarded as a regulatory protein responsible not only for establishment of infection and increased pathogenesis but also for enhancement of viral replication. However, the mechanism of Nef-induced activation of viral replication remains to be clearly understood. Using transient transfection assay,(More)
HIV-1 Tat is a multifunctional regulatory protein that, in addition to its primary function of transactivating viral transcription, also tends to modulate cellular gene expression, for which the molecular mechanism remains to be clarified. We have reported earlier nuclear factor kappa B (NFκB) enhancer binding activity of Tat and proposed this DNA binding(More)
Glioblastoma (GBM; grade IV astrocytoma) is a very aggressive form of brain cancer with a poor survival and few qualified predictive markers. This study integrates experimentally validated genes that showed specific upregulation in GBM along with their protein-protein interaction information. A system level analysis was used to construct GBM-specific(More)
A recent transcriptome analysis of graded patient glioma samples led to identification of AEBP1 as one of the genes upregulated in majority of the primary GBM as against secondary GBM. Aebp1 is a transcriptional repressor that is involved in adipogenesis. It binds to AE-1 element present in the proximal promoter of aP2 gene that codes for fatty acid binding(More)
One of the hallmarks of Human Immunodeficiency Virus-1 (HIV-1) infection is progressive depletion of the infected and bystander CD4+ T-cells by apoptosis. Different mitochondrial proteins have been implicated in this apoptotic process; however, the role of different subunits of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) complexes in apoptosis is not(More)
