Cells isolated from Lepidopteran insects (butterfly and moths) display very high radioresistance as compared to mammals and other insect species. Since free radical induced mitochondrial damage under stress conditions is very crucial for cellular fate determination, antioxidant system is the major protective modality required to minimize stress-induced(More)
Previous studies on various insect cell lines have displayed very high radioresistance in Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) as compared to mammals as well as other orders of Insecta including Diptera. Since NOS is known to modulate cellular radiation sensitivity, we carried out in silico analysis of Lepidopteran NOS and compared its structural and(More)
