Glucosylceramide synthase (GCS) catalyses the transfer of glucose from UDP-glucose (UDP-Glc) to ceramide to form glucosylceramide, the common precursor of most higher-order glycosphingolipids. Inhibition of GCS activity has been proposed as a possible target of chemotherapeutic agents for a number of diseases, including cancer. Design of new GCS inhibitors(More)
In the recent times issues like the Green House Gas (GHG) emission reduction and carbon-trading through Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) have gained large prominence as a part of climate change. Biomass gasification is one such technology which is environmentally benign and holds large promise for the future. These technologies are currently being utilized(More)
The paper addresses a distributed power generation system that has evolved at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. The technological and field-related experience pertaining to open top re-burn down draft biomass gasification system coupled with the internal combustion engine or thermal device are brought out. The gasifier reactor design uses dual air(More)
Unripe and ripe kundang fruits (Bouea macrophylla Griffith) is either consumed fresh or is cooked in Malaysia. In this study composition of unripe and ripe fruits (proximate, amino acids profile, minerals and heavy metal contents) were evaluated. Results obtained showed unripe kundang fruit to possess higher moisture, ash, crude lipid, crude fiber and crude(More)
