BACKGROUND The recD mutants of the Antarctic Pseudomonas syringae Lz4W are sensitive to DNA-damaging agents and fail to grow at 4 degrees C. Generally, RecD associates with two other proteins (RecB and RecC) to produce RecBCD enzyme, which is involved in homologous recombination and DNA repair in many bacteria, including Escherichia coli. However, RecD is… (More)
Edge detection techniques are widely used in image processing for object detection based on segmentation of images on local changes in intensity. Here a novel method is presented that detects edges in an image with more accuracy and precision. The proposed technique locates the edge by comparing the pixels in the entire image using a 3×3 binary… (More)
The psychrophilic bacterium Pseudomonas syringae strain Lz4W was isolated from soil samples from Antarctica to decipher the mechanisms of low-temperature adaptation. We report here the 4.982-Mb draft genome sequence of P. syringae Lz4W. This sequence will provide insights into the genomic basis of the psychrophilicity of this bacterium.
Enzymes of shikimate pathway, dehydroquinase and shikimate kinase represent comparatively newer targets for antitubercular research. Molecular hybridization approach was implemented by integrating the essential features of inhibitors acting on these enzymes of shikimate pathway. Considering the flexibility of alicyclic ring of reported dehydroquinase (DHQ)… (More)
