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)
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)
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)
Since aging is the most important risk factor for variety of diseases, the discovery of a wide range of chemical modulators of aging in model organisms encourages new strategies for targeting age associated diseases. Simple genetic manipulation leads to long-lived and healthy animals, so any compound which could have similar effect would prove a boon to(More)
Protein-protein interactions play an important role in regulating the expression of huntingtin protein (htt). Expansion of polyglutamine tracts in htt results in neurodegenerative Huntington disease. Huntingtin interacting protein (HIP14) is an important interacting partner of htt and the altered interactions have been proposed to play an important role in(More)
White spot disease is a devastating disease of shrimp Penaeus monodon in which the shrimp receptor protein PmRab7 interacts with viral envelop protein VP28 to form PmRab7-VP28 complex, which causes initiation of the disease. The molecular mechanism implicated in the disease, the dynamic behavior of proteins as well as interaction between both the biological(More)
Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is a major cause of cancer related death. The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) pathway is over expressed in HNSCC. EGFR regulates the HNSCC by inducing signalling events responsible for regulating key tumorigenic processes such as proliferation, inhibition of apoptosis, cell adhesion/ motility, growth and(More)
With the advent of significant establishment and development of Internet facilities and computational infrastructure, an overview on bio/chemoinformatics is presented along with its multidisciplinary facts, promises and challenges. The Government of India has paved the way for more profound research in biological field with the use of computational(More)
The variant surface antigen PfEMP1 (Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1) encoded by the polymorphic multi-copy var gene family plays an important role in parasite biology and the host-parasite interactions. Sequestration and antigenic variation is an essential component in the survival and pathogenesis of Plasmodium falciparum and(More)
