cDNA and genomic clones of cinnamoyl CoA reductase measuring 1011 and 2992 bp were isolated from a leguminous pulpwood tree Leucaena leucocephala, named as LlCCR. The cDNA exhibited 80–85% homology both at the nucleotide and amino acid levels with other known sequences. The genomic sequence contained five exons and four introns. Sense and antisense(More)
Both cDNA including 5′UTR and 3′UTR and genomic clones of cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase (CAD) were isolated and characterized from a pulp-yielding leguminous tree Leucaena leucocephala (LlCAD1). The deduced amino acid sequence shared high identity with orthologous sequences of Acacia mangium × Acacia auriculiformis (83%), Medicago sativa (83%), Nicotiana(More)
The wavelength continuity constraint on the routing and wavelength assignment algorithms gives rise to a serious problem of fairness due to which longer-hop lightpaths (4-hop, 5-hop) suffer from a higher blocking probability as compared to shorter-hop lightpaths. By using wavelength reservation we try to control the contention of resources. We investigate(More)
Cardiac fibroblast hyperplasia associated with enhanced matrix deposition is a major determinant of tissue remodeling in several disease states of the heart. However, mechanisms controlling cell cycle progression in cardiac fibroblasts remain unexplored. Identification of cell cycle regulatory elements in these cells is important to develop strategies to(More)
In order to overcome the effects of degradation of the optical signal caused by transmission impairments, regenerators are placed at some intermediate nodes to regenerate the signal to its original level. Regeneration requires the signal to be dropped locally, regenerated and retransmitted back into the network. This process involves provisioning for(More)
