Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinases (MAPKs) cascade plays an important role in regulating plant growth and development, generating cellular responses to the extracellular stimuli. MAPKs cascade mainly consist of three sub-families i.e. mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase (MAPKKK), mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (MAPKK) and mitogen… (More)
The cancer profile in the Indian state of Uttarakhand reveals that the breast cancer is the most prevalent type of cancers in females followed by cervical and ovarian type. Literature survey shows that the E6 protein of Human Papilloma Virus-16 (HPV-16) is responsible for causing several forms of cancer in human. Therefore, it is of interest to screen… (More)
The hepatitis B virus × protein (HBx) of Hepatitis B virus activates AP-1 protein and causes the down regulation of PTEN (full name) and p53 leads to the tumor formation in liver. In this study, the interactions between DNA and AP-1 have been targeted by docking of natural compounds epigallocatechine gallate (EGCG), curcumin, luteoline, genistein, ellagic… (More)
The HBx protein in Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) is a potential target for anti-liver cancer molecules. Therefore, it is of interest to screen known natural compounds against the HBx protein using molecular docking. However, the structure of HBx is not yet known. Therefore, the predicted structure of HBx using threading in LOMET was used for docking against plant… (More)
Nineteen fungal species were isolated from the ingredients of the ayurvedic drugs, Jusanda. The significance of the findings is discussed.
