The 1 mm long Caenorhabditis elegans is one of the prime research tools to study different human neurodegenerative diseases. We have considered the case in which increase in the surrounding temperature of this multicellular model leads to abnormal bursts of neuronal cells that can be linked to seizure or convulsion. The induction of such seizure/convulsion(More)
The identification of important chemical features of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors will be helpful to discover the potent candidate to inhibit the AChE activity. The best hypothesis from structure-based, Hypo1, one hydrophobic (H) pointed toward ILE444, TRP84, three hydrogen bond accepter (HBA), two hydrogen bond donor, one positive ionizable(More)
RATIONALE Mutations in MYBPC3 encoding cardiac myosin binding protein C are common genetic cause of hereditary cardiac myopathies. An intronic 25-bp deletion in MYBPC3 at 3' region is associated with dilated (DCM) and hypertrophic (HCM) cardiomyopathies in Southeast Asia. However, the frequency of MYBPC3 25 bp deletion and associated clinical presentation(More)
Although perilipin 2 (Plin2) has been shown to bind lipids with high affinity, the Plin2 lipid binding site has yet to be defined. This is of interest since Plin2's affinity for lipids has been suggested to be important for lipid droplet biogenesis and intracellular triacylglycerol accumulation. To define these regions, mouse Plin2 and several deletion(More)
