Edge detection is one of the important pre-processing steps in image analysis. Edges characterize boundaries and edge detection is one of the most difficult tasks in image processing hence it is a problem of fundamental importance in image processing. Edges in images are areas with strong intensity contrasts and a jump in intensity from one pixel to the(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)
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)
Biotin carboxylase (AccC) protein plays an essential role in cell wall biosynthesis in majority of bacterial genera. Inhibition of cell wall biosynthesis might be an ideal way to control the bacterial multiplication in the host system. AccC is one of the promising targets for the antibacterial drugs production. The benzimidazole derivatives are hopeful(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)
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)
FGF23, CYP24A1 and VDR altogether play a significant role in genetic susceptibility to chronic kidney disease (CKD). Identification of possible causative mutations may serve as therapeutic targets and diagnostic markers for CKD. Thus, we adopted both sequence and sequence-structure based SNP analysis algorithm in order to overcome the limitations of both(More)
The main goal of this study is to understand the molecular-level interactions of neuraminidase inhibitor. The molecular docking, molecular dynamics and binding energy calculation analyses were carried out and the results revealed that the 150-cavitiy in the active site may play an important role in binding of drugs. Free energy calculations revealed that(More)
The 3-phosphoinositide-dependent protein kinase-1 (PDK1) is an imminent target for discovering novel anticancer drugs. In order to understand the structure–activity correlation of naphthyridine-based PDK-1 inhibitors, we have carried out a combined pharmacophore, three-dimensional quantitative structure–activity relationship (3D-QSAR), and molecular docking(More)
