Detection of altered global DNA methylation in coronary artery disease patients.
The methylation status of genomic DNA from peripheral lymphocytes in a cohort of 287 individuals was evaluated and a significant positive correlation of global DNA methylation with plasma homocysteine levels in CAD patients was observed.
Mining literature for a comprehensive pathway analysis: A case study for retrieval of homocysteine related genes for genetic and epigenetic studies
Mapping the genes to their respective pathways revealed that an elevated level of homocysteine leads to the atherosclerosis either by directly affecting lipid metabolism and transport or via oxidative stress and/or Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) stress.
Analysis of Expression Profile of Mammalian Cell Entry (mce) Operons of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
The results strongly suggest that mce1 is expressed as a polycistronic message in M. tuberculosis H37Rv and that it is necessary to examine their role in pathogenesis.
Comparative analysis of chromatin landscape in regulatory regions of human housekeeping and tissue specific genes
Comparison of chromatin characteristics in terms of the scaffold/matrix attachment regions, nucleosome formation potential and the occurrence of repetitive sequences, in the upstream regulatory regions of housekeeping and tissue specific genes shows differences in the chromatin features between the two groups of genes indicate the involvement of Chromatin organisation in the control of gene expression.
Genome wide DNA methylation profiling for epigenetic alteration in coronary artery disease patients.
Genomic imprinting in the mealybugs
The mealybug system may provide evidence for stable maintenance of chromatin code not only through mitosis but also through meiosis, in light of the accruing experimental evidence for chromatin-based differences in the maternal and paternal genomes.
Application of SNaPshot for analysis of thiopurine methyltransferase gene polymorphism.
SNaPshot method for TPMT polymorphism analysis works faster with the potential for high throughput and can provide future opportunity to multiplex, though multiplexing has not been done in the present analysis.
Epigenetic regulation of cytomegalovirus major immediate-early promoter activity in transgenic mice.
In silico characterization of the INO80 subfamily of SWI2/SNF2 chromatin remodeling proteins.
Effect of calcium and polythene wrapping on storage life of mango
The perforated polythene wrapping and preharvest spraying of calcium compounds particularly CaCl2 and Ca(No3)2 on storage life of fruits was evaluated in mango Amrapali. The shelf-life of fruits was…
