Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) is a major cause of life-threatening diarrheal disease around the world. The major aspects of ETEC virulence are colonization of the small intestine and the secretion of enterotoxins which elicit diarrhea. Intestinal colonization is mediated, in part, by adhesins displayed on the bacterial cell surface. As(More)
One of the major limitations to the application of high-resolution biophysical techniques such as X-crystallography and spectroscopic analyses to structure-function studies of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Hop1 protein has been the non-availability of sufficient quantities of functionally active pure protein. This has, indeed, been the case of many proteins,(More)
The cytological architecture of the synaptonemal complex (SC), a meiosis-specific proteinaceous structure, is evolutionarily conserved among eukaryotes. However, little is known about the biochemical properties of SC components or the mechanisms underlying their roles in meiotic chromosome synapsis and recombination. Functional analysis of Saccharomyces(More)
Morphological, histochemical, and chemical study of three necropsy specimens of liver in the terminal stage of Indian Childhood Cirrhosis revealed a strikingly high copper content. it is proposed that excess accumulation of copper in the cytoplasm of hepatocytes disturbs the microtubular system, causing hydropic swelling and the formation of Mallory's(More)
