Ornithine delta-aminotransferase (OAT) is an important enzyme in proline biosynthetic pathway and is implicated in salt tolerance in higher plants. OAT transaminates ornithine to pyrroline 5-carboxylate, which is further catalyzed to proline by pyrroline 5-carboxylate reductase. The Vigna aconitifolia OAT cDNA, encoding a polypeptide of 48.1 kDa, was(More)
Homology modeling of the catalase, CatC cloned and sequenced from rice (Oryza sativa L., cv Ratna an Indica cultivar) has been performed based on the crystal structure of the catalase CatF (PDB code 1m7s) by using the software MODELLER. With the aid of molecular mechanics and molecular dynamics methods, the final model is obtained and is further assessed by(More)
In an effort to develop potent anti-inflammatory and antithrombotic drugs, a series of new 4-(2-phenyltetrahydrofuran-3-yl) benzene sulfonamide analogs were designed and docked against homology models of human cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), lipoxygenase and thromboxane synthase enzymes built using MODELLER 7v7 software and refined by molecular dynamics for 2 ns(More)
