Monoterpenes, which are among the major components of plant essential oils, are known for their ecological roles as well for pharmaceutical properties. Geraniol, an acyclic monoterpene induces cell cycle arrest and apoptosis/senescence in various cancer cells and plants; however, the genes involved in the process and the underlying molecular mechanisms are(More)
Several spectroscopic approaches namely fluorescence, time-resolved fluorescence, UV-visible, and Fourier transform infra-red (FT-IR) spectroscopy were employed to examine the interaction between ethane-1,2-diyl bis(N,N-dimethyl-N-hexadecylammoniumacetoxy)dichloride (16-E2-16) and bovine serum albumin (BSA). Fluorescence studies revealed that 16-E2-16(More)
The interaction of synthesized ionic liquid, 1-butyl-1-methyl-2-oxopyrrolidinium bromide (BMOP) and bovine serum albumin (BSA) was investigated using UV-Vis, FT-IR, steady state and time resolved fluorescence measurements and docking studies. Steady state spectra revealed that BMOP strongly quenched the intrinsic fluorescence of BSA through dynamic(More)
Herein, we are reporting the interaction of ionic liquid type gemini surfactant, 1,4-bis(3-dodecylimidazolium-1-yl) butane bromide ([C12-4-C12 im]Br2) with lysozyme by using Steady state fluorescence, UV-visible, Time resolved fluorescence, Fourier transform-infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy techniques in combination with molecular modeling and docking method.(More)
Protein interactions with surfactants are dependent on their physiochemical properties. The effect of cationic gemini surfactant hexanediyl-a,u-bis-(N-(2-hydroxyethyl)-N-methylhexadecylammonium dibromide) on the stability and activity of hen egg white lysozyme was compared with its monomeric counterpart N-(2-hyroxyethyl)-N,N-dimethylhexadecylammonium(More)
The present work is focused on the interaction between membrane bound gramicidin and 1-butyl-1-methyl-2-oxopyrrolidinium bromide (BMOP) ionic liquid. Ionic liquids (ILs) are solvents that are often liquid at room temperature and composed of organic cation and appropriate anion. The gramicidin peptide forms prototypical ion channels for cations, which have(More)
The refolding of urea denatured horse heart cytochrome c (h-cyt-c) under the influence of ester based cationic gemini surfactants [ethane-1, 2-diyl bis(N, N-dimethyl-N-alkylammoniumacetoxy) dichlorides] 16-E2-16, 14-E2-14 and 12-E2-12 (n-E2-n) was performed by using UV-visible, fluorescence and circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopic techniques. We found that(More)
