Evaluation of Alternate DNA Structures at c-MYC Fragile Region Associated with t(8;14) Translocation And Role of GNG Motifs During G-quadruplex Formation
Watson-Crick paired B-form DNA is the genetic material in most of the biological systems. Integrity of DNA is of utmost importance for the normal functioning of any organism. Various environmental factors, chemicals and ...
Host Gene Expression Profiling of Japanese Encephalitis Virus Infected cells : Identification of Novel Pro- and Anti-viral Genes
Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV), a mosquito-borne flavivirus is the causative agent of Japanese encephalitis (JE). The disease affects mostly children and around 30000– 50000 cases of JE and up to 15000 deaths are reported ...
Sexual Selection On Elephant Tusks
Darwin was troubled by elaborate male traits observed in many species that are seemingly maladaptive for survival, the peacock’s tail being the most iconic of all. He wrote "The sight of a feather in a peacock’s tail, ...
The Structure And Function Of The Vocal Repertoire Of The Greater Racket-Tailed Drongo (Dicrurus paradiseus) : Insights Into Avian Vocal Mimicry
Sound is used as a medium for communication by taxa as varied as insects, fish, amphibians, birds and mammals. In some birds like the suboscines, song is genetically encoded, whereas in parrots, hummingbirds and oscines, ...
Mechanism of Abrin-Induced Apoptosis and Insights into the Neutralizing Activity of mAb D6F10
Abrin is a potent toxin obtained from the seeds of Abrus precatorius. It is a heterodimeric glycoprotein consisting of an A and a B subunit linked together by a disulfide bond. The toxicity of the protein comes from the A ...
Elucidating the Roles of Lon Protease and its Substrate, MarA, in Response to salicylate and other Compounds in Escherichia coli
Cytosolic protein degradation is crucial for cellular homeostasis as it orchestrates protein turnover by destruction of misfolded, unstable and abnormal proteins. This process has two main stages: (i) an ATP-dependent stage ...
