Targeting BACE1 (β-site APP cleaving enzyme 1 or β-secretase) is the focus of Alzheimer's disease (AD) research because this aspartyl protease is involved in the abnormal production of β amyloid plaques (Aβ), the hallmark of its pathophysiology. Evidence suggests that there is a strong connection between AD and BACE1. As such, strategies to inhibit Aβ(More)
GMP synthetase (GMPS), a key enzyme in the purine biosynthetic pathway performs catalysis through a coordinated process across two catalytic pockets for which the mechanism remains unclear. Crystal structures of Plasmodium falciparum GMPS in conjunction with mutational and enzyme kinetic studies reported here provide evidence that an 85° rotation of the(More)
Urolithiasis was induced using ethylene glycol in wistar albino rats, the formation of calcium stones in the kidney results with the damage of antioxidant system. Ethanolic extract of Cucumis trigonus Roxb fruit of family Curcurbitaceae was used to treat urolithiasis. On this course, the extract also repairs the changes that happened in the enzymatic, non(More)
The ethanolic extract of Acalypha indica was tested for its biopotency on membrane bound enzymes and marker enzymes in urolithiasis in male wistar albino rats. Calcium oxalate urolithiasis was induced by 0.75% ethylene glycol in drinking water for 30 days. There was a significant decrease in membrane bound enzymes such as Ca(2+) ATPase, Mg(2+) ATPase,(More)
