In order to obtain mutant strains showing higher bioethanol production than wild-type strains, a commercial Saccharomyces cerevisiae type was subjected to mutagenesis using ethyl methane sulfonate (EMS). After adding EMS to a shaken yeast suspension, the viability of yeast cells was assessed by diluted sample inoculation to solid yeast-extract peptone(More)
Taxol or paclitaxel, an approved drug by the Food and Drug Administration, is being used for the treatment of human cancers. This study aimed to isolate and determine different species of native endophytic fungi from Iranian Taxus baccata (yew) plants located in the northern forests of Iran. To do so, a novel molecular screening approach was performed for(More)
Heavy metal toxicity has serious adverse effects on the environment. The metal sequestering characteristics of a novel metal binding peptide (Glu-Cys)11 Gly+linker+hexahistidine (EC11:His6) was investigated to determine if it can absorb Cu(2+) or Zn(2+) cations. Molecular dynamics simulations were carried out using a model of 6 Cu(2+) or Zn(2+) and other(More)
INTRODUCTION Over expression of squalene synthase gene causes induction of growth tumour and reduction of apoptosis. This gene which is conserved between Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast and humans, is named (ERG9). AIM In this work, we studied the effect of Matricaria recutita extract on ERG9 gene (squalene synthase) expression in S.cerevisiae which was(More)
Addendum: Amplification, Sequencing and Cloning of Iranian Native Bacillus subtilis Alpha-amylase Gene in Saccharomyces cerevisiae [published in Jundishapur J Microbiol. 2013;6(8):e7371] Fahimeh Afzal-Javan ; Mohsen Mobini-Dehkordi ; Behnaz Saffar 1,2 1Department of Genetics, Faculty of Science, University of Shahrekord, Shahrekord, IR Iran 2Research(More)
The improved Cd(2+) surface affinity characteristics of a mutated cyanobacterial metallothionein SmtA (K45C) were investigated via experimental and theoretical methods. Molecular dynamics simulations were carried out using a model of Cd(2+) and other ions enclosed in a fully hydrated simulation box with the wild-type or mutated SmtA protein. The theoretical(More)
Objective(s): This study aimed to find the effects of silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) (40 nm) on skin wound healing in mice Mus musculus when innate immune system has been suppressed. Materials and Methods: A group of 50 BALB/c mice of about 8 weeks (weighting 24.2±3.0 g) were randomly divided into two groups: Ag-NPs and control group, each with 25 mice. Once(More)
