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)
Metabolic pathways of prokaryotes are more biochemically diverse than is generally recognized. Distinctive biochemical features are shared by phylogenetic clusters. The hierarchical levels of character-state clustering depends upon evolutionary events which fortuitously became fixed in the genome of a common ancestor. Prokaryotes can now be ordered on a(More)
A novel natural product structurally related to prephenate and arogenate was isolated from a mutant of Neurospora crassa. This D-beta-(1-carboxy-4-hydroxy-2,5-cyclohexadiene-1-yl)-lactic acid is herein given the trivial name of D-prephenyllactate. The new metabolite is even more acid labile than is prephenate and is quantitatively converted to phenyllactate(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)
The bifunctional P protein (chorismate mutase: prephenate dehydratase) from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus has been purified. It was homogeneous in polyacrylamide gels and was more than 95% pure on the basis of the immunostaining of purified P protein with the antibodies raised against the P protein. The native enzyme is a homodimer (Mr = 91,000) composed of(More)
The gold(III) complexes of the type (1,2-diaminocyclohexane)(1,3-diaminopropane)gold(III) chloride, [(DACH)Au(pn)]Cl3, [where DACH = cis-, trans-1,2- and S,S-1,2-diaminocyclohexane and pn = 1,3-diaminopropane] have been synthesized and characterized using various spectroscopic and analytical techniques including elemental analysis, UV–Vis and FTIR(More)
For centuries microbial biotransformation has proved to be an imperative tool in alleviating the production of various chemicals used in food, pharmaceutical, agrochemical and other industries. In the field of pharmaceutical research and development, biotransformation studies have been extensively applied to investigate the metabolism of compounds (leads,(More)
