Power management has become popular in mobile computing as well as in server farms. Although a lot of work has been done to manage the energy consumption on uniproces-sor real-time systems, there is less work done on their multi-computer counterparts. For a set of real-time tasks with precedence constraints executing on a distributed system, we propose new… (More)
Riboflavin (RF) or vitamin B2 is known to have neuroprotective effects. In the present study, we report the attenuation of the neuroprotective effects of RF under UV-B irradiation. Preconditioning of UV-B irradiated riboflavin (UV-B-RF) showed attenuated neuroprotective effects compared to that of RF in SH-SY5Y neuroblostoma cell line and primary cortical… (More)
Proteasomes are multicatalytic protease complexes in the cell, involved in the non-lysosomal recycling of intra-cellular proteins. Proteasomes play a critical role in regulation of cell division in both normal as well as cancer cells. In cancer cells this homeostatic function is deregulated leading to the hyperactivation of the proteasomes. Proteasome… (More)
Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are responsible for aggressive tumor growth, metastasis and therapy resistance. In this study, we evaluated the effects of Shikonin (Shk) on breast cancer and found its anti-CSC potential. Shk treatment decreased the expression of various epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) and CSC associated markers. Kinase profiling array… (More)
In microelectronics design, power consumption, speed of operation, are crucial constraints. Propagation delay of circuit component has an impact on such factors. Pipelining and parallel processing strategies are utilized for desirable propagation delays and hence for clock and throughput variation respectively. To some extent variation in propagation delay… (More)
Human papilloma virus (HPV) expressing E6 and E7 oncoproteins, is known to inactivate the tumor suppressor p53 through proteasomal degradation in cervical cancers. Therefore, use of small molecules for inhibition of proteasome function and induction of p53 reactivation is a promising strategy for induction of apoptosis in cervical cancer cells. The… (More)
We report a method for the synthesis of α-diazo-β-keto esters, phosphonates and sulfones via acylation of corresponding diazomethyl anions with N-acylbenzotriazoles. The N-o-amino-acylbenzotriazoles exhibited an unprecedented transphosphorylation reaction leading to diazoacetyl phenylphosphoramidates.
Kinases are one of the major players in cancer development and progression. Serine threonine kinases such as human checkpoint kinase-1 (Chk1), Mek1 and cyclin-dependent kinases have been identified as promising targets for cancer treatment. Chk1 is an important kinase with vital role in cell cycle arrest and many potent inhibitors targeted to Chk1 have been… (More)
