Asparagine deamidation is one of the important determinants of protein thermostability. Here, structure based mutagenesis has been done in order to probe the role of Asn residues in thermostability of a Ca independent Bacillus sp. KR-8104 α-amylase (BKA). Residues involved in potential deamidation processes have been selected and replaced using a site(More)
Regulatory T-cells (Tregs) are key players in successful pregnancy and their deficiencies are implicated in pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia (PE), but the results are inconsistent among studies. This study aims to compile an overview of the studies about the associations of Tregs and PE risk and to provide recommendations for future research. A(More)
OBJECTIVES One strategy for the treatment of diabetes is inhibition of pancreatic α- amylase. Plants contains different chemical constituents with potential for inhibition of α-amylase and hence maybe used as therapeutic. MATERIALS AND METHODS Urtica dioica and Juglans regia Linn were tested for α-amylase inhibition. Different concentrations of leaf(More)
BACKGROUND The current distribution of and access to health services along with the future health needs of the population have prompted wide application of Geographic Information Systems (GISs). During recent years, GIS has been used in public health management for planning and organization of healthcare services. This study investigates geographical(More)
BACKGROUND L-asparaginase has been used as a chemotherapeutic agent in treatment of lymphoblastic leukemia. In the present investigation, Bacillus sp. PG03 and Bacillus sp. PG04 were studied. METHODS L- asparaginases were produced using different culture media and were purified using ion exchange chromatography. RESULTS Maximum productivity was obtained(More)
BACKGROUND Preeclampsia (PE) is a multifactorial pregnancy disorder and is a major cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. Despite intense study, the pathophysiology of preeclampsia remains enigmatic. Recent studies have reported that regulatory T cells (Tregs) is linked with PE. It is well identified that FoxP3/Scurfin is involved in development and(More)
