Genes in the Armadillo (ARM)-repeat superfamily encode proteins with a range of developmental and physiological processes in unicellular and multicellular eukaryotes. These 42 amino acid, long tandem repeat-containing proteins have been abundantly recognized in many plant species. Previous studies have confirmed that Armadillo proteins constitute a(More)
The recurrent repeats having conserved stretches of amino acids exists across all domains of life. Subsequent repetition of single sequence motif and the number and length of the minimal repeating motifs are essential characteristics innate to these proteins. The proteins with tandem peptide repeats are essential for providing surface to mediate(More)
QTL mapping by two DH mapping populations deciphered allelic variations for five different seed glucosinolate traits in B. juncea. Allelic variations for five different seed glucosinolate (GS) traits, namely % propyl, % butyl, % pentyl, aliphatics and total GS content were studied through QTL analysis using two doubled haploid (DH) mapping populations.(More)
Chromobacterium violaceum, a proteobacterium, is a facultative anaerobe, which is generally present as the normal flora of water and soil in tropical and subtropical regions. The infection due to Chromobacterium violaceum is rare but mostly fatal. It is responsible for causing fatal cases of septicemia, visceral abscesses, skin and soft tissue infections,(More)
A 46-year-old female with interstitial lung disease presented with proximal muscle weakness, worsening hypertension, microangiopathic hemolysis, thrombocytopenia and deteriorating renal function. She had no sclerodactyly, but had abnormal capillaroscopy. She tested positive for PM-Scl antibodies, and a renal biopsy showed an acute thrombotic microangiopathy(More)
INTRODUCTION A key node in number of essential cellular processes in eukaryotes, Armadillo was originally characterized in Drosophila as the component of Wingless/Wnt signal transduction pathway (Nusslein-Volhard and Wieschaus, 1980). β-catenin is the mammalian homolog of Armadillo playing dual role in structural and tran-scriptional regulation during(More)
Our environment constantly undergoes changes either natural or manmade affecting growth and development of all the organisms including plants. Plants are sessile in nature and therefore to counter environmental changes such as light, temperature, nutrient and water availability, pathogen, and many others; plants have evolved intricate signaling mechanisms,(More)
Since energy sources are limited and it has become our need to save as much energy as possible. In this scenario, Smart meter comes into the picture. A Smart meter captures unit consumed in a specific time frame, display results and consequently provide real time inputs to the billing unit. The use of such smart meters has been growing rapidly in recent(More)
Over 230 million surgical procedures are conducted worldwide each year with numbers increasing. Pain, undesirable inflammation and infection are common complications experienced by patients following surgery. Opioids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), local anaesthetics (LAs) and antibiotics are the commonly administered drugs peri-operatively(More)
