To investigate the applicability of ARIMA models in wholesale vegetable market models are built taking sales data of one perishable vegetable from Ahmedabad wholesales market in India. It is found that these models can be applied to forecast the demand with Mean Absolute Percentage Error (MAPE) in the range of 30%. This error is acceptable in fresh produce(More)
Proteolytic enzymes have evolved several mechanisms to cleave peptide bonds. These distinct types have been systematically categorized in the MEROPS database. While a BLAST search on these proteases identifies homologous proteins, sequence alignment methods often fail to identify relationships arising from convergent evolution, exon shuffling, and modular(More)
UVI31+ is an evolutionarily conserved BolA family protein. In this study we examine the presence, localization and possible functions of this protein in the context of a unicellular alga, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. UVI31+ in C. reinhardtii exhibits DNA endonuclease activity and is induced upon UV stress. Further, UVI31+ that normally localizes to the cell(More)
Cellular metabolite analyses by (13)C-NMR showed that C. reinhardtii cells assimilate acetate at a faster rate in heterotrophy than in mixotrophy. While heterotrophic cells produced bicarbonate and CO2aq, mixotrophy cells produced bicarbonate alone as predominant metabolite. Experiments with singly (13)C-labelled acetate ((13)CH(3)-COOH or CH(3)-(13)COOH)(More)
We have investigated transcript level changes of CO2-concentrating mechanism (CCM) genes during light–dark (12 h:12 h) cycles in synchronized Chlamydomonas reinhardtii at air-level CO2. CCM gene transcript levels vary at various times of light–dark cycles, even at same air-level CO2. Transcripts of inorganic carbon transporter genes (HLA3, LCI1, CCP1, CCP2(More)
Almost complete sequence specific (1)H, (13)C and (15)N resonance assignments of S114A mutant of UVI31+ from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii are reported. The cDNA of S114A mutant of UVI31+ was cloned from a eukaryotic green algae (C. reinhardtii) and overexpressed in E.coli from where the protein was purified to homogeneity. The point mutation S114A in UVI31+(More)
