From the culture filtrate of Macrophomina phaseolina, two forms of carboxymethylcellulase were separated by ion-exchange chromatography and designated as CMCase-I and CMCase-II. CMCase-I was purified following a four-step procedure involving gel filtration on Sephadex G-75, Con-A Sepharose 4B affinity chromatography, fast protein liquid chromatography on(More)
Lipase isolated from a soil isolate, Pseudomonas mendocina (PK-12CS) chemoselectively hydrolyzed the fatty ester group in presence of arbamate of compound 5-amino-2,4-dihydro-3H-1,2,4-triazole-3 ones, a class of compounds which are attractive starting materials for the synthesis of triazole annealed heterocycles. The enzymatic method provides an easy access(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the frequency association between resistin gene polymorphism with its circulating levels, metabolic risk factor and insulin resistance in adult women. DESIGN Totally 615 subjects were enrolled for the study, 305 women were with metabolic syndrome and 310 women were without metabolic syndrome according to NCEP-ATP III criteria.(More)
Squalene synthase (SSN, EC 2.5.1.21), a major enzyme in the sterol biosynthetic pathway, catalyses an unusual head-to-head reductive dimerization of two molecules of farnesyl-pyrophosphate (FPP) in a two-step reaction to form squalene. FPP serves as a metabolic intermediate in the formation of sterols, dolichols, ubiquinones and farnesylated proteins. Here,(More)
Serine hydroxymethyltransferase (SHMT) catalyzes the inter conversion of serine and tetrahydrofolate (H(4)-folate) to form glycine and 5,10-methylene H(4)-folate and generates one-carbon fragments for the synthesis of nucleotides, methionine, thymidylate, choline, etc. In spite of being an indispensable enzyme of the thymidylate cycle, SHMT in Leishmania(More)
The stability of cellulolytic and hemicellulolytic enzymes from Macrophomina phaseolina improved on immobilization and was 1.5 to 2-fold more active against pre-treated wheat bran, rice bran or jute powder. The hydrolysis efficiency of the catalyst increased with a decrease in its particle size. About 80% (w/v) of the sugar obtained from wheat bran was(More)
The triosephosphate isomerase of Leishmania donovani (LdTIM) was expressed at high level in Escherichia coli. The TIM gene was cloned in expression vector pET-23(a) with C-terminal 6× His tag fused in frame, and expressed as a 27.6-kDa protein in E. coli as inclusion bodies. The recombinant LdTIM from E. coli lysate was solubilized in 6 M guanidine(More)
Triosephosphate isomerase (TIM) is a major enzyme in the glycolytic pathway, which catalyzes the interconversion of glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate to dihydroxyacetone phosphate. Here, we report cloning, expression and purification of a catalytically active recombinant TIM of Leishmania donovani (LdTIM). The recombinant LdTIM had a pH optimum in the range of(More)
We introduce a novel variant of the multi-armed bandit problem, in which bandits are streamed one at a time to the player, and at each point, the player can either choose to pull the current bandit or move on to the next bandit. Once a player has moved on from a bandit, they may never visit it again, which is a crucial difference between our problem and(More)
