Deoxyhypusine hydroxylase (DOHH) catalyzes the final step in the post-translational synthesis of an unusual amino acid hypusine (N(€)-(4-amino-2-hydroxybutyl) lysine), which is present on only one cellular protein, eukaryotic initiation factor 5A (eIF5A). We present here the molecular and structural basis of the function of DOHH from the protozoan parasite,(More)
While phosphotyrosine modification is an established regulatory mechanism in eukaryotes, it is less well characterized in bacteria due to low prevalence. To gain insight into the extent and biological importance of tyrosine phosphorylation in Escherichia coli, we used immunoaffinity-based phosphotyrosine peptide enrichment combined with high resolution mass(More)
Interaction of non-structural protein 5A (NS5A) of Hepatitis C virus (HCV) with human kinases namely, casein kinase 1α (ck1α) and protein kinase R (PKR) have different functional implications such as regulation of viral replication and evasion of interferon induced immune response respectively. Understanding the structural and molecular basis of(More)
BACKGROUND Overwhelming majority of the Serine/Threonine protein kinases identified by gleaning archaeal and eubacterial genomes could not be classified into any of the well known Hanks and Hunter subfamilies of protein kinases. This is owing to the development of Hanks and Hunter classification scheme based on eukaryotic protein kinases which are highly(More)
Takifugu rubripes is teleost fish widely used in comparative genomics to understand the human system better due to its similarities both in number of genes and structure of genes. In this work we survey the fugu genome, and, using sensitive computational approaches, we identify the repertoire of putative protein kinases and classify them into groups and(More)
Mononuclear mono- and bis-chelated iron(iii) complexes [Fe(Phimp)(H2O)(OMe)Cl], 1, [Fe(Phimp)Cl2], 2, [Fe(Me-Phimp)Cl2], 3, [Fe(N-Phimp)Cl2], 4, [Fe(Phimp)2](ClO4), 5, [Fe(Me-Phimp)2](NO3)·H2O, 6·H2O, and [Fe(N-Phimp)2](ClO4), 7, derived from tridentate ligands, have been synthesised and characterized. The X-ray crystal structures of the complexes 2, 4, 5(More)
