Naegleria fowleri is a parasitic unicellular free living eukaryotic amoeba. The parasite spreads through contaminated water and causes primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). Therefore, it is of interest to understand its molecular pathogenesis. Hence, we analyzed the parasite genome for miRNAs (microRNAs) that are non-coding, single stranded RNA(More)
Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is one of the major microvascular diseases and most common in diabetic patient, finally results in kidney failure. The main features of DN are basement membrane thickening, microalbuminuria, proteinuria, glomerular, mesangial hypertrophy and ECM protein accumulation. Recent discoveries have been shown that numerous pathways are(More)
Carboxylesterases are hydrolases which catalyze the hydrolysis of various types of esters. Carboxylesterase from the seeds of Jatropha curcas has been purified to homogeneity using ammonium sulfate fractionation, CM-cellulose chromatography, Sephadex G-100 chromatography and preparative polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE). The homogeneity of the(More)
The total protein and esterase were isolated from the seeds of Red Kidney beans (Phaseolus vulgaris). The crude protein content was observed as 15%. The germination of seeds of red kidney bean has been carried out and change in the total protein content and esterase activity was monitored. The protein content was decreased from 15% (24 hours) to 8% (144(More)
The activity of six hydrolytic enzymes-carboxyl esterase, acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase, β-galactosidase, β-glucosidase and β-hexosaminidase, were studied in different regions of the normal human brain tissue obtained at autopsy. Protein estimation and activities of the hydrolytic enzymes with respective substrates were assayed by(More)
Two carboxylesterases (ME-III and ME-IV) have been purified to apparent homogeneity from the seeds of Mucuna pruriens employing ammonium sulfate fractionation, cation exchange chromatography on CM-cellulose, gel-permeation chromatography on Sephadex G-100 and preparative PAGE. The homogeneity of the purified preparations was confirmed by polyacrylamide gel(More)
