Streptococcus pneumonia is the common cause of sepsis and meningitis. Emergence of multiple antibiotic resistant strains in the community-acquired bacterium is catastrophic. Glucose kinase (GLK) is a regulatory enzyme capable of adding phosphate group to glucose in the first step of streptomycin biosynthesis. The activity of glucose kinase was regulated by(More)
The increasing resistance to anti-tb drugs has enforced strategies for finding new drug targets against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). In recent years enzymes associated with the rhamnose pathway in Mtb have attracted attention as drug targets. The present work is on α-D-glucose-1-phosphate thymidylyltransferase (RmlA), the first enzyme involved in the(More)
A new chemo sensor 2-(4-methylbenzylideneamino)-isoindoline-1,3-dione (PDB) was synthesized and characterized by UV–Vis., IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR spectral and elemental analysis. Its photophysical properties in organic solvents with different polarity were studied. The sensitivity of the PDB in different pH solutions was investigated and the results indicated(More)
In this study, we investigated a new series of naphthalimide based Schiff base compounds as potential DNA binding, antioxidant and antimicrobial agents. The structural characterization of synthesized compounds was carried out with the aid of elemental analysis and spectroscopic techniques (UV–vis., IR, 1H and 13C NMR). The DNA binding properties of target(More)
Nutraceuticals are a diverse product category with various synonyms used internationally. The term 'nutraceutical' has been part of the industry lexicon for almost a decade. Unfortunately, it still seems to be held up in a scrambled web of complementary definitions, regulatory watchdogs and consumer confusion. For an effective regulatory policy framework,(More)
