Expanding The Horizon Of Mycobacterial Stress Response : Discovery Of A Second (P)PPGPP Synthetase In Mycobacterium Smegmatis
The stringent response is a highly conserved physiological response mounted by bacteria under stress (Ojha and Chatterji, 2001; Magnusson et al., 2005; Srivatsan and Wang, 2007; Potrykus and Cashel, 2008). Until recently, ...
Probing Macromolecular Reactions At Reduced Dimensionality : Mapping Of Sequence Specific And Non-Specific Protein-Ligand lnteractions
During the past decade the effects of macromolecular crowding on reaction pathways is gaining in prominence. The stress is to move out of the realms of ideal solution studies and make conceptual modifications that consider ...
Studies On The Mechanisms Involved In Thymic Atrophy During Salmonella Enterica Serovar Typhimurium Infection
T lymphocytes are an essential component of the adaptive immune response and are highly versatile in function. Each T cell has a unique T cell receptor that can recognize an antigenic peptide in the context of the major ...
Glycodelin-A As The Regulator Of CD8+ T-Lymphocyte Activity : Implications In Primate Pregnancy
The ability of our immune system to mount a response against non-self-antigens legitimates the semi-allogenic fetus as a target for maternal immune attack. Yet, in a normal pregnancy the fetus stays well protected due to ...
Immunoneutralization Of Cytotoxic Abrin : Insights Into Mechanisms And Therapy
Type II Ribosome Inactivating Proteins (RIPs), commonly known as A/B toxins are heterodimers comprising of a catalytically active A chain, an RNA N-glycosidase which inhibits protein synthesis and a lectin-like B chain ...
Characterization Of Structural And Non-structural Proteins Of Positive Sense, Single-stranded RNA Plant Viruses
In the present thesis, two positive sense single-stranded RNA viruses have been used as models to understand the structure and function of viral-encoded proteins. One of them, Pepper Vein Banding Virus (PVBV; genus Potyvirus; ...
