We developed a computational model to explore the hypothesis that regulatory instructions are context dependent and conveyed through specific 'codes' in human genomic DNA. We provide examples of correlation of computational predictions to reported mapped DNase I hypersensitive segments in the HOXA locus in human chromosome 7. The examples show that(More)
Colchicine, extracted from the colchicum autumnale plant, used by the ancient Greeks more than 20 centuries ago, is one of the most ancient drugs still prescribed even today. The major mechanism of action is binding to microtubules thereby interfering with mitosis and subsequent modulation of polymorphonuclear leukocyte function. Colchicine has long been of(More)
A chronic, progressive disorder Steroid Resistant Nephrotic Syndrome (SRNS) accounts for 10-20% of all children with Nephrotic Syndrome. It is a heterogeneous disorder comprised of persistent edema, proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia and hyperlipidemia. Treatment for steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) is challenging and children who suffer from SRNS(More)
