Newcastle disease (ND) is a contagious viral disease of many avian species particularly domestic poultry, and is responsible for devastating outbreaks in the poultry industries around the globe. In spite of its importance and endemicity in Southern Asia, data on the genetic nature of the viruses and epizootiological information of the disease is scarce. In(More)
Platinum-based compounds are widely used as chemotherapeutics for the treatment of a variety of cancers. The anticancer activity of cisplatin and other platinum drugs is believed to arise from their interaction with DNA. Several cellular pathways are activated in response to this interaction, which include recognition by high-mobility group and repair(More)
A series of potential biologically active 2-(4-hydroxy-1,1-dioxido-2H-1,2-benzothiazin-3-yl)quinazolin-4(3H)-ones was synthesized in a straight forward manner by condensation of respective 4-hydroxy-1,2-benzothiazine-1,1-dioxides with anthranilamide followed by simple and high throughput cyclization of(More)
Heat Shock Proteins (HSPs) are the substantial ingredients for cell growth and viability, which are found in all living organisms. HSPs manage the process of folding and unfolding of proteins, the quality of newly synthesized proteins and protecting cellular homeostatic processes from environmental stress. On the basis of functionality, HSPs are categorized(More)
Translation is an essential genetic process for understanding the mechanism of gene expression. Due to the large number of protein sequences generated in the post-genomic era, conventional methods are unable to identify Translation Initiation Site (TIS) in human genes timely and accurately. It is thus highly desirable to develop an automatic and accurate(More)
Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is an inherited disorder characterized by defective development of teeth, hairs and sweat glands. X-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is caused by mutations in the EDA gene, and autosomal forms of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia are caused by mutations in either the EDAR or the EDARADD genes. To study the molecular(More)
N′-(2-Chloroquinolin-3-yl)methylidene-4-hydroxy-2H-1,2-benzothiazine-3-carbohydrazides 1,1-dioxide (4a–4j) were prepared starting from corresponding methyl 4-hydroxy-2H-1,2-benzothiazine-3-carboxylate (1a and 1b) by condensation with hydrazine hydrate, followed by treatment with substituted 2-chloro-3-formyl quinolines (3a–3e) under ultrasonic irradiation.(More)
Ecophysiological characteristics of "Ahmadaghaii" "Ohadi" "Kallehghuchi" cultivars (as scions) on four pistachio rootstocks (Pistacia vera Cv. Badami riz, P. vera Cv. Sarakhs, P. atlantica sub sp. Mutica, P. atlantica sub sp. Atlantica) were evaluated during the spring and summer seasons of 2005 in the Iran's Pistachio Research Institute (IPRI).(More)
In this paper, we present a modified two-step fixed point iterative method for solving nonlinear functional equations and analyzed. The modified two-step fixed point iterative method has convergence of order two. The modified two-step fixed point iterative method converges faster than the fixed point method. The comparison table demonstrates the faster(More)
