Would healing of the central nervous system (CNS) is a complex process involving interactions between cells from both the vascular and the neural environments, extracellular matrix proteins, and a cocktail of agonistic and antagonistic bioactive molecules. Vascular cells, particularly peripheral monocytes and macrophages, are believed to play an important(More)
Structural polymorphism of DNA is a widely accepted property. A simple addition to this perception has been our recent finding, where a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) site present in a quasi-palindromic sequence of b-globin LCR exhibited a hairpin-duplex equilibrium. Our current studies explore that secondary structures adopted by individual(More)
Introduction In the last few decades, molecular biology has evolved and matured with the vast amount of biological data generated after the completion of Human Genome Project. In order to explicate the potential of this crucial information, storing and organizing this huge amount of data is a prerequisite. A large number of attempts have continuously been(More)
Introduction DNA, RNA and proteins are the most important constituent biopolymers of any cell. DNA acts as storage repository of information, which then is used by RNA for processing and giving instructions for the coding or expression of a protein. These proteins further act as the basic constructing units of the cell, as they are involved in almost each(More)
The binding of TiCl2(dpme)2 (1), (dpme = 6,6'-dimethyl-2,2'-bipyridine), Ti(ada)2(bzac)2 (2), (ada = adamantylamine; bzac = benzoylacetone), and TiCl2(bzac)(bpme) (3), (bpme = 4,4'-dimethyl-2,2'-bipyrdine) with calf thymus (ct) DNA has been studied by UV-visible spectroscopy, thermal denaturation, and circular dichroism spectroscopy. In UV-visible study(More)
Structural polymorphism of DNA is a widely accepted property. A simple addition to this perception has been our recent finding, where a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) site present in a quasipalindromic sequence of beta-globin LCR exhibited a hairpin-duplex equilibrium. Our current studies explore that secondary structures adopted by individual(More)
