Y95B8A.12 gene of C. elegans encodes RhoGEF domain, which is a novel module in the Guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs). Alternative splicing increases transcriptome and proteome diversification. Y95B8A.12 gene has two reported alternatively spliced transcripts by the C. elegans genome sequencing consortium. In the work presented here, we report the(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) was initially described as a physiological mediator of endothelial cell relaxation, an important role in hypotension. NO is an intercellular messenger that has been recognized as one of the most versatile players in the immune system. Cells of the innate immune system--macrophages, neutrophils and natural killer cells--use pattern(More)
Aging can be defined as a progressive decline in physiological efficiency regulated by an extremely complex multifactorial process. The genetic makeup of an individual appears to dictate this rate of aging in a species specific manner. For decades now, scientists have tried to look for tiny signatures or signs which might help us predict this rate of aging.(More)
One of the most remarkable observations stemming from the sequencing of genomes of diverse species is that the number of protein-coding genes in an organism does not correlate with its overall cellular complexity. Alternative splicing, a key mechanism for generating protein complexity, has been suggested as one of the major explanation for this discrepancy(More)
Cadherins are calcium-dependent, homophilic, cell-cell adhesion receptors that regulate morphogenesis, pattern formation and cell migration. The C. elegans Genome Sequencing Consortium has reported 12 genes from C. elegansgenome encoding members of the cadherin superfamily. Alternative splicing of eukaryotic pre-mRNAs is a mechanism for generating(More)
C. elegans C46H11.4 gene encodes a Let-23 fertility effector/regulator protein of the EGF-receptor class of the tyrosine kinase family. Alternative splicing is a major mechanism of generating protein diversity in higher eukaryotes. C. elegans genome sequencing consortium has reported three alternatively spliced transcripts of C46H11.4 gene which encodes for(More)
Computational gene prediction and identifying alternatively spliced isoforms have always been a challenging task. In this paper, we describe the performance of three gene/exon finding programmes namely Fex, Gen view2 and Gene builder capable of predicting open reading frames or exons for a given set of sequences from C. elegans genome. The predicted exons(More)
