Methyl ketones are a group of highly reduced platform chemicals with widespread applications in the fragrance, flavor and pharmacological industries. Current methods for the industrial production of methyl ketones include oxidation of hydrocarbons, but recent advances in the characterization of methyl ketone synthases from wild tomato have sparked interest(More)

UNU/IIST UNU/IIST enables developing countries to attain self-reliance in software technology by: (i) their own development of high integrity computing systems, (ii) highest level postgraduate university teaching, (iii) international level research, and, through the above, (iv) use of as sophisticated software as reasonable. UNU/IIST contributes through:(More)
Identifying genes that are differentially expressed by Mycobacterium bovis BCG after phagocytosis by macrophages will facilitate the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of host cell-intracellular pathogen interactions. To identify such genes a cDNA-total RNA subtractive hybridization strategy has been used that circumvents the problems both of limited(More)

We propose point forecast accuracy measures based directly on distance of the forecast-error c.d.f. from the unit step function at 0 (" stochastic error distance, " or SED). We provide a precise characterization of the relationship between SED and standard predic-tive loss functions, showing that all such loss functions can be written as weighted SED's. The(More)
The influence of water models SPC, SPC/E, TIP3P, and TIP4P on ligand binding affinity is examined by calculating the binding free energy ΔG(bind) of oseltamivir carboxylate (Tamiflu) to the wild type of glycoprotein neuraminidase from the pandemic A/H5N1 virus. ΔG(bind) is estimated by the Molecular Mechanic-Poisson Boltzmann Surface Area method and(More)
Instabilities are common phenomena frequently observed in nature, sometimes leading to unexpected catastrophes and disasters in seemingly normal conditions. One prominent form of instability in a distributed system is its response to a harmonic modulation. Such instability has special names in various branches of physics and is generally known as modulation(More)
The dynamical chaos in Lennard-Jones toy models of heteropolymers is studied by molecular dynamics simulations. It is shown that two nearby trajectories quickly diverge from each other if the heteropolymer corresponds to a random sequence. For good folders, on the other hand, two nearby trajectories may initially move apart but eventually they come(More)
By the virtual screening method we have screened out Dihydrochalcone as a top-lead for the Alzheimer's disease using the database of about 32364 natural compounds. The binding affinity of this ligand to amyloid beta (Aβ) fibril has been thoroughly studied by computer simulation and experiment. Using the Thioflavin T (ThT) assay we have obtained the(More)

To my wife, my parents and grandparents Acknowledgement First of all, I would like to thank my supervisors and my role models, Drs. Sanjay K. Banerjee and Al F. Tasch for their invaluable guidance and support throughout my four-year Ph.D. study. Many thanks to Drs. for taking their time to serve on my committee, and for their comments and help. Many thanks(More)
