1-naphthol (1N), 2-naphthol (2N) and 8-quinolinol (8H) are general water pollutants. 1N and 2N are the configurational enantiomers and 8H is isoelectronic to 1N and 2N. These pollutants when ingested are transported in the blood by proteins like human serum albumin (HSA). Binding of these pollutants to HSA has been explored to elucidate the specific(More)
Wheat germ lipase is a cereal lipase which is a monomeric protein. In the present study we sought to structurally characterize this protein along with equilibrium unfolding in solution. Conformational changes occurring in the protein with varying pH, were monitored by circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy, fluorescence emission spectroscopy, binding of(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized by the progressive loss of the dopaminergic neurons leading to decrease in striatal dopamine (DA) levels. In the present review, our focus was on recent advances in the treatment procedures of PD to achieve an increase in deficient tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) activity and/or expression. Stimulation of residual TH(More)
The differentiation of naïve CD4(+) T cells into T helper 2 (Th2) cells requires production of the cytokine IL-4 in the local microenvironment. It is evident that naïve/quiescently activated CD4(+) T cells produce the IL-4 that drives Th2 cell differentiation. Because early production of IL-4 in naïve T cells leads to preferential Th2 cell differentiation,(More)
Very few studies have been done to understand the effect of millimolar concentrations of chaotropes on protein structure. In our previous study we observed that the secondary and tertiary structure of human serum albumin (HSA) increases in the presence of 5 mmol/L urea. Micelle formation in amphoteric detergents increases in the presence of equivalent(More)
The rapid incorporation of labeled carbon dioxide into succinate of rat, liver in viva was previously demonstrated (1). In these experiments, the time of sacrifice after a single injection of the isotope was less than 30 minutes, and the experimental approach involved isolation of certain intermediates of the Krebs cycle. In whole homogenates (2), a similar(More)
The oncoprotein Cancerous Inhibitor of Protein Phosphatase 2A (CIP2A) is overexpressed in most malignancies and is an obvious candidate target protein for future cancer therapies. However, the physiological importance of CIP2A-mediated PP2A inhibition is largely unknown. As PP2A regulates immune responses, we investigated the role of CIP2A in normal immune(More)
The immune function of AMIGO2 is currently unknown. Here, we revealed novel roles of AMIGO2 in modulating T-cell functions and EAE using Amigo2-knockout (AMG2KO) mice. Amigo2 was abundantly expressed by murine T helper (Th) cells. Its deficiency impaired transplanted T-cell infiltration into the secondary lymphoid organs and dampened Th-cell activation, but(More)
