Lithium Exposure Induced Changes At Glutamatergic Synapses In Hippocampal Neurons- Insights From In Vitro Electrophysiology And Imaging Studies
Lithium is a drug used to treat mood disorders and also has many side effects, including central nervous system (CNS) complications (such as cognitive dulling), associated with its use. The mechanism of its action still ...
Determinants Of Behavioural And Reproductive Dominance In The Primitively Eusocial Wasp Ropalidia Marginata
In societies where all individuals are reproductively totipotent and yet, at a given time only one of them reproduces, it is interesting to examine the factor(s) that may influence and predict who will be the reproductive. ...
Molecular Mechanisms Underlying Phosphatidylinositol-Specific Phospholipase C Mediated Regulation Of Lipid Metabolism
Phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C (PLC) is involved in Ca2+ mediated signalling events that lead to altered cellular status. PLC activation causes hydrolysis of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) and ...
Structural And Functional Characterization Of Calcium-Dependent Protein Kinase (CaCDPK1) From Cicer Arietinum : Effects Of Autophosphorylation And Membrane Phospholipids
In plants, calcium is a ubiquitous signaling molecule and changes in cytosolic calcium levels reported in response to various abiotic and biotic stresses like salt stress, drought, pathogen attack and phytohormone signaling. ...
Insights Into The Trans-Splicing Based Expression Of Heat Shock Protein 90 In Giardia Lamblia
Heat shock proteins (Hsps) are a class of molecular chaperones which were first discovered as proteins up-regulated in response to heat stress in Drosophila. Later, it was found that these set of proteins get up-regulated ...
Transcriptional Regulation By A Biotin Starvation- And Methanol-Inducible Zinc Finger Protein In The Methylotrophic Yeast, Pichia Pastoris
Pichia pastoris, a methylotrophic yeast is widely used for recombinant protein production. It has a well characterized methanol utilization (MUT) pathway, the enzymes of which are induced when cells are cultured in the ...
