Gluconobacter oxydans is a gram-negative bacterium belonging to the family Acetobacteraceae. G. oxydans is an obligate aerobe, having a respiratory type of metabolism using oxygen as the terminal electron acceptor. Gluconobacter strains flourish in sugary niches e.g. Gluconobacter strains are non-pathogenic towards man and other animals but are capable of(More)
Wireless Sensor Networks have gained worldwide attention in recent years due to the advances made in wireless communication, information technologies and electronics field. They consist of resource constrained sensor nodes that are usually randomly or manually deployed in an area to be observed, collecting data from the sensor field and transmitting the(More)
Inosine triphosphate (ITP) and xanthosine triphosphate (XTP) are formed upon deamination of ATP and GTP as a result of exposure to chemical mutagens and oxidative damage. Nucleic acid synthesis requires safeguard mechanisms to minimize undesired lethal incorporation of ITP and XTP. Here, we present the crystal structure of YjjX, a protein of hitherto(More)
Plant Lipoxygenases (LOX) are known to play major role in plant immunity by providing front-line defense against pathogen-induced injury. To verify this, we isolated a full-length OsLOX3 gene and also 12 OsLOX cDNA clones from Oryza sativa indica (cultivar Pusa Basmati 1). We have examined the role played by LOXs in plant development and during attack by(More)
A total of 25 Dof genes were retrieved from GRASSIUS grass regulatory information server. These sequences were in silico characterized for homology search, multiple sequence alignment for conserved Dof DNA binding domains, distribution of conserved motifs and phylogenetic relatedness with sorghum, rice and Arabidopsis. A highly conserved four cysteine(More)
Heat shock protein 70 (HSP 70) plays a vital role by bestowing cytoprotection against diverse kinds of stresses. The ubiquitous HSP 70 proteins are the most abundant and temperature sensitive among all the HSPs. The present paper has characterized HSP70-1 cDNA in goat (Capra hircus). Total RNA isolated from goat peripheral blood mononuclear cells was(More)
A total of 121 protein sequences of pectate lyases were subjected to homology search, multiple sequence alignment, phylogenetic tree construction, and motif analysis. The phylogenetic tree constructed revealed different clusters based on different source organisms representing bacterial, fungal, plant, and nematode pectate lyases. The multiple accessions of(More)
In Wireless Sensor Networks the nodes have limited energy and are seriously constrained by the battery life. To increase the lifetime of the network is a critical and challenging issue and thus it is the routing in WSNs, which is the primary focus of design for researchers. In this paper the Elitist genetic algorithm and simulated annealing algorithms are(More)
