UNLABELLED Dengue virus belongs to the virus family Flaviviridae. Dengue hemorrhagic disease caused by dengue virus is a public health problem worldwide. The viral non structural 2B and 3 (NS2B-NS3) protease complex is crucial for virus replication and hence, it is considered to be a good anti-viral target. Leaf extracts from Carica papaya is generally(More)
Mutations in the gene-encoding vesicle lipopolysaccharide-induced tumor necrosis factor (LITAF) protein cause Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 1C (CMT1C) disease, a neurological disorder. The LITAF gene is mapped to chromosome number 16 and can be found at cytogenetic location 16p13 of the chromosome. CMT1C-linked small integral membrane protein of lysosome/late(More)
Mutations in the gene encoding vesicle-associated membrane protein (VAPB) cause amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a fatal neurodegenerative disorder. The VAPB gene is mapped to chromosome number 20 and can be found at cytogenetic location 20q13.33 of the chromosome. VAPB is seen to play a significant role in the unfolded protein response (UPR), which is(More)
The T118M mutation in PMP22 gene is associated with Charcot Marie Tooth, type 1A (CMT1A). CMT1A is a form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, the most common inherited disorder of the peripheral nervous system. Mutations in CMT related disorder are seen to increase the stability of the protein resulting in the diseased state. We performed SNP analysis for all(More)
Melioidosis is a serious infectious diseases affecting multi-organ system in humans with high mortality rate. The disease is caused by the bacterium, Burkholderia pseudomallei and it is intrinsically resistant to many antibiotics. Thus, there is an urgent need for protective vaccine against B. pseudomallei; which may reduce morbidity and mortality in(More)
BACKGROUND Haemophilus influenzae (H. Influenzae) is the causative agent of pneumonia, bacteraemia and meningitis. The organism is responsible for large number of deaths in both developed and developing countries. Even-though the first bacterial genome to be sequenced was that of H. Influenzae, there is no exclusive database dedicated for H. Influenzae.(More)
Streptococcus pneumoniae causes pneumonia, septicemia and meningitis. S. pneumoniae is responsible for significant mortality both in children and in the elderly. In recent years, the whole genome sequencing of various S. pneumoniae strains have increased manifold and there is an urgent need to provide organism specific annotations to the scientific(More)
Discovery of mupirocin, an antibiotic that targets isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase, established aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase as an attractive target for the discovery of novel antibacterial agents. Despite a high degree of similarity between the bacterial and human aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, the selectivity observed with mupirocin triggered the possibility of(More)
Mutations in Fetal Liver Tyrosine Kinase 3 (FLT3) genes are implicated in the constitutive activation and development of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML). They are involved in signalling pathway of autonomous proliferation and block differentiation in leukaemia cells. FLT3 is considered as a promising target for the therapeutic intervention of AML. There are a(More)
Aromatic-aromatic hydrogen bonds are important in many areas of chemistry, biology and materials science. In this study we have analyzed the roles played by the π-π interactions in interleukins (ILs) and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) proteins. Majority of π-π interacting residues are conserved in ILs and TNF proteins. The accessible surface area calculations(More)
