Snake venom metalloproteinase (SVMP) (Echis coloratus (Carpet viper) is a multifunctional enzyme that is involved in producing several symptoms that follow a snakebite, such as severe local hemorrhage, nervous system effects and tissue necrosis. Because the three-dimensional (3D) structure of SVMP is not known, models were constructed, and the best model(More)
Janus kinase 2 (JAK2) plays a crucial role in the patho-mechanism of cardiovascular pathologies, myeloproliferative disorders and many other diseases. Thus, effective JAK2 kinase inhibitors may be of significant therapeutic importance. In this study, a pharmacophore mapping studies were undertaken for a series of phenylaminopyrimidines derivatives. A five(More)
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, which is characterized by amyloid β peptide deposition in the brain. Aβ peptide, the major component of amyloid plaques is generated by the sequential processing of a larger protein called amyloid Precursor Protein by β-amyloid cleaving enzyme (BACE-1). In this study, we appllied computer(More)
Over expression of T-lymphokine-activated killer cell-originated protein kinase (TOPK) has been associated with leukemia, myeloma tumors and various other cancers. The function and regulatory mechanism of TOPK in tumor cells remains unclear. Structural studies that could reveal the regulatory mechanism have been a challenge because of the unavailabity of(More)
Yellow fever virus (YFV) is caused by single stranded positive RNA virus called Flavivirus. Till now no specific antiviral agents are available for the treatment of YFV, and despite a commercial YFV vaccine, there are still approximately 30,000 deaths worldwide each year and cases have been increasing in the last 20 years. Here, the effects of adenosine(More)
Phosphoinositide-dependent kinase-1 plays a vital role in the PI3-kinase signaling pathway that regulates gene expression, cell cycle growth and proliferation. The common human cancers include lung, breast, blood and prostate possess over stimulation of the phosphoinositide-dependent kinase-1 signaling and making phosphoinositide-dependent kinase-1 an(More)
Carbamate kinase catalyzes the reversible reaction of carbamoyl phosphate, ADP to ATP and ammonium phosphate which is then hydrolyzed to ammonia and carbonate. In this study, the three-dimensional model of TvCK has been constructed by molecular modeling studies. The models were further energy minimized and refined. The best model was selected based on the(More)
Over expression of ATP-binding cassette transporters is considered one of the major reasons for non-responsiveness to antiepileptic drugs. Carbamazepine (CBZ), one of first line antiepileptic drug is known to influence ABCC2 expression but its exact molecular mechanism is unknown. We investigated the effect of CBZ on expression of ABCC2 and pregnane X(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is considered to be the most common and often deadly disorder which affects the brain. It is caused by the over expression of proteins such as ephrin type-A receptor 2 (EphA2), epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and EGFRvIII. These 3 proteins are considered to be the potential therapeutic targets for GBM. Among these,(More)
