Structural Studies On Three-Fold Symmetric Plant Lectins
Lectins, multivalent carbohydrate-binding proteins of non-immune origin, have the unique ability to decode the information contained in complex carbohydrate structures of glycoproteins and glycolipids by stereo-specifically ...
Computer Modelling Studies On DNA Triple Helices
Structural, Biophysical And Biochemical Studies On Mannose-Specific Lectins
For a long time, the scientific community underestimated the value of carbohydrates and the approach of most scientists to the complex world of glycans was apprehensive. The scenario, however, has changed today. With the ...
Conformational Analysis And Design Of Disulfides In Antiparallel β-Sheets And Helices
Disulfides are the primary covalent interactions within a protein molecule that connect residues which are sequentially distant. Naturally occurring disulfides enhance the stability of the protein by destabilization of ...
Influence Of FtsH Protease On The Medial FtsZ Ring In Escherichia Coli
FtsH is an essential AAA family Zn++ metalloprotease of Escherichia coli, possessing ATPase-dependent chaperon activity and ATP-dependent protease activity. Heat shock transcription factor Sigma32, LpxC, SecY, and bacteriophage ...
Mechanism Of Activation Of Bacteriophage Mu Late Genes By Transcription Activator Protein C
Initiation of transcription is a major step in the regulation of gene expression. A dominant theme in regulation of gene expression lies in understanding the mechanism involved in selective expression of the genes in ...
Metabolic Adaptation For Utilization Of Short-Chain Fatty Acids In Salmonella Typhimurium : Structural And Functional Studies On 2-methylcitrate Synthase, Acetate And Propionate Kinases
Three-dimensional structures of proteins provide insights into the mechanisms of macromolecular assembly, enzyme catalysis and mode of activation, substrate-specificity, ligand-binding properties, stability and dynamical ...
