Biochemical Characterization Of Heat Shock Protein 90 From Plasmodium Falciparum
Molecular chaperones are a group of proteins which maintain cellular homeostasis by assisting de novo protein folding and their refolding to native state after destabilization due to external stress. They are also known ...
Studies On The Roles Of Intracellular Ca2+ And Reactive Oxygen Species During CD4+ T Cell Activation : Influence Of Signal Strength
Optimal CD4+ T cell activation is key to the generation of a productive immune response. Naïve circulating CD4+ T cells are quiescent under normal conditions and undergo activation only upon encounter of the T cell receptor ...
Mycobacterium Leprae RecA Intein : A LAGLIDADG Homing Endonuclease, Displays A Unique Mode Of DNA Binding And Catalysis Compared To A Canonical LAGLIDADG Homing Enzyme
Mobile genetic elements are DNA sequences that move around to different positions within one genome or between different genomes. Mobile DNA elements were initially considered as selfish DNA sequences parasitizing the ...
Japanese Encephalitis Virus Infection In Vitro : Role Of Type-I Interferons And NF-kB In The Induction Of Classical And Nonclassical MHC-I Molecules
Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) is one of the major causes of encephalitis in Asia. JEV causes serious inflammation of the brain, which may lead to permanent brain damage and has a high mortality rate. Almost 3 billion ...
A Study On The Roles Of The Ras Activation Pathway During Interferonγ Mediated Functional Responses And Acetaminophen-induced Liver Injury In Mice
Interferons (IFNs) perform a wide range of biological activities: anti-microbial, anti-proliferative, immunomodulatory etc. The IFN family includes three main classes: Type I, Type II and the recently identified Type III. ...
A Novel Caffeine Oxidase From Pseudomonas Putida
Peroxisomal Targeting Of Pichia Pastoris Cytochrome C During Methanol And Fatty Acid Metabolism
Intracellular protein sorting plays a key role in the regulation of cellular metabolism, gene expression, signal transduction and a number of other cellular processes. Proteins targeted to specific cellular compartments ...
Role of Mammalian RAD51 Paralogs in Genome Maintenance and Tumor Suppression
My research was focused on understanding the importance of mammalian RAD51 paralogs in genome maintenance and suppression of tumorigenesis. The investigation carried out during this study has been addressed toward gaining ...
