Molecular Characterization c-di-GMP Signalling In Mycobacterium Smegmatis
Bacterial stationary phase is an interesting biological system to study, as the organism undergoes several metabolic changes during this period and new molecules are generated to support its survival. The stationary phase ...
Garlic (Allium Sativum) Agglutinin I: Specificity, Binding And Folding Mechanism
(Indian Institute of Science, 2006-11-08)
Lectins are a class of proteins that bind to carbohydrates with a high degree of specificity. They are involved in various cellular processes such as, host - pathogen interactions, targeting of proteins within cells, cell ...
Mechanism Of Anticancer And Antimalarial Action Of A Modulator Of Heat Shock Proteins
This thesis entitled “Mechanism of Anticancer and Antimalarial Action of a Modulator of Heat Shock Proteins” describes the successful elucidation of the mechanism of anticancer and antimalarial action of 15-Deoxyspergualin ...
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 ...
Orienting Macromolecule At The Air - Water Interface : DNA-Protein Interaction On Langmuir Films
The Langmuir – Blodgett (LB) technique is about forming insoluble monolayer on the surface of aqueous solution and recently, it has emerged as one of the best method to study floating monolayer at the air – water interface. ...
Computational And Biochemical Studies On The Enzymes Of Type II Fatty Acid Biosynthesis Pathway : Towards Antimalarial And Antibacterial Drug Discovery
Malaria, caused by the parasite Plasmodium, continues to exact high global morbidity and mortality rate next only to tuberculosis. It causes 300-500 million clinical infections out of which more than a million people succumb ...
