BACKGROUND Heat shock proteins are a highly conserved group of protective cellular proteins whose synthesis is increased in response to a variety of environmental or pathophysiological stresses. Heat shock proteins are useful biomarkers for carcinogenesis in tissues and signal the degree of differentiation and the aggressiveness of cancers. Regulation of(More)
Amylases constitute one of the most important groups of enzymes for commercial use. In the present study, production of α-amylase was optimized using a newly isolated actinobacterial strain from the coral reef environment of the Gulf of Mannar Biosphere Reserve, India. It was identified as Streptomyces sp. ML12 based on chemotaxonomy, cultural and(More)
OBJECTIVE To enhance the pigment production by Streptomyces sp. PM4 for evaluating its anticancer activity. METHODS Response surface methodology was employed to enhance the production of red pigment from Streptomyces sp. PM4. Optimized pigment was purified and evaluated for the anticancer activity against HT1080, Hep2, HeLa and MCF7 cell lines by MTT(More)
