The adsorption characteristics of 4-chloro-2-nitrophenol (4C2NP) onto single-walled and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs and MWCNTs) from aqueous solution were investigated with respect to the changes in the contact time, pH of solution, carbon nanotubes dosage and initial 4C2NP concentration. Experimental results showed that the adsorption efficiency(More)
The p53 tumor-suppressor gene encodes a nuclear phosphoprotein with cancer- inhibiting properties. The most probable cancerous mutations occur as point mutations in exons 5 up to 8 of p53, as a base pair substitution that encompasses CUA and GAT sequences. As DNA drug design represents a direct genetic treatment of cancer, in the research reported(More)
Most of the previously theoretical studies about the stochastic nature of the IP3R calcium release channel gating use the chemical master equation (CME) approach. Because of the limitations of this approach we have used a stochastic simulation algorithm (SSA) presented by Gillespie. A single subunit of De Young-Keizer (DYK) model was simulated using(More)
Pyrazine derivatives are important class of compounds with diverse biological and cytotoxic activities and clinical applications. In this study, B3 p 86 / 6 - 31 (+ +) G * was used to compute and map the molecular surface electrostatic potentials of a group of substituted amides of pyrazine-2-carboxylic acids to identify common features related to their(More)
A series of new quinazoline derivatives has been recently reported as potent multi-acting histone deacetylase (HDAC), epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) inhibitors. HER2 is one of the major targets for the treatment of breast cancer and other carcinomas. Three-dimensional structure-activity(More)
Intermolecular potential energy surface for an interaction of drug with Na has been examined using HF level of theory with 6-31G* basis set. The name of drug is meso-tetrakis (p-sulphonatophenyl) porphyrin (here after abbreviated to TSPP). The numbers of Na + have a significant effect on the calculated potential energy curve (including position, depth, and(More)
Six theoretical methods were used for the calculation of physical parameters for derivatives of pyrimidines and benzimidazols. We used Gaussian 98 at NMR and NBO calculations by using HF method with 6-31G, 6-31G* and 6-31+G basis set and B3LYP, BLYP and B3PW91 methods with 6-31G basis set. Chemical shift was drawn curve for all of the atoms in each(More)
Base excision repair (BER) is the major pathway involved in removal of endogenous and mutagen-induced DNA damage. The X-ray cross-complementing group 1 protein (XRCC1), which participates in BER, is a scaffolding protein. The oxidized XRCC1 N-terminal domain (NTD) forms additional interactions with DNA polymerase β (Pol β). Any change in the residues of a(More)
