Salmonella enterica is an animal and zoonotic pathogen of worldwide importance and may be classified into serovars differing in virulence and host range. We sequenced and annotated the genomes of serovar Typhimurium, Choleraesuis, Dublin, and Gallinarum strains of defined virulence in each of three food-producing animal hosts. This provides valuable(More)
Automated annotation of protein function is challenging. As the number of sequenced genomes rapidly grows, the overwhelming majority of protein products can only be annotated computationally. If computational predictions are to be relied upon, it is crucial that the accuracy of these methods be high. Here we report the results from the first large-scale(More)
We screened 125 Pseudomonas strains from our culture collection for the production of hydantoinase activity using DL-phenylhydantoin as a substrate. Pseudomonas desmolyticum NCIM 2112 was found to be the best hydantoinase (dihydropyrimidinase E.C. 3.5.2.2) producer. The enzymatic reactions were carried out using 18-20-h grown cells in nutrient broth and(More)
The mixed-ligand complexes [Cu(L)(maltol)] where L = 2,2'-bipyridine (bpy; 1), 1,10-phenanthroline (phen; 2), 1,10-phenanthroline-5,6-dione (phendione; 3), dipyrido[3,2-a:2',3'-c]phenazine (dppz; 4), and 4b,5,7,7a-tetrahydro-4b,7a-epiminomethanoimino-6H-imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]-phenanthroline-6,13-dione (bipyridylglycoluril; bpg; 5) have been synthesized and(More)
Mycobacterial cell envelope components have been a major focus of research due to their unique features that confer intrinsic resistance to antibiotics and chemicals apart from serving as a low-permeability barrier. The complex lipids secreted by Mycobacteria are known to evoke/repress host-immune response and thus contribute to its pathogenicity. This(More)
Reaching the experimental time scale of millisecond is a grand challenge for protein folding simulations. The development of advanced Molecular Dynamics techniques like Replica Exchange Molecular Dynamics (REMD) makes it possible to reach these experimental timescales. In this study, an attempt has been made to reach the multi microsecond simulation time(More)
Protein folding is scientifically and computationally challenging problem. The early phases of protein folding are interesting due to various events like nascent secondary structure formation, hydrophobic collapse leading to formation of non-native or meta-stable conformations. These events occur within a very short time span of 100 ns as compared to total(More)
Nine complexes of the type [Ru(N-N)(2)(BPG)]Cl(2) 1-4, [Ru(N-N)(BPG)(2)]Cl(2) 5-8, and [Ru(BPG)(3)]Cl(2) 9 where N-N is 2,2'-bipyridine (bpy), 1,10-phenanthroline (phen), dipyrido[3,2-d:2',3'-f]quinoxaline (dpq), dipyrido[3,2-a:2',3'-c]phenazine (dppz), which incorporates bipyridine-glycoluril(More)
Complexes of the type [Co(LL)2Cl2]Cl, where LL = N,N'-ethylenediamine (en), 2,2'-bipyridine (bpy), 1,10-phenanthroline (phen), 1,10-phenanthroline-5,6-dione (phendione) and dipyrido[3,2-a:2',3'-c]phenazine (dppz) have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, IR, UV-visible and NMR spectroscopy. Crystal structure of [Co(phendione)2Cl2]Cl x(More)
BACKGROUND Aeromonas sp. can now be considered relatively common enteropathogens due to the increase of diseases in humans. Aeromonas culicicola is a gram negative rod-shaped bacterium isolated for the first time from the mosquito mid-gut, but subsequently detected in other insects and waters also. Our previous study discovered that A. culicicola harbors(More)
