Mutation Annotation, Peptide Designing and Targeting of V 383 Position in GLUT4, an Important Enzyme Involved in Glucose Metabolism

Abstract Diabetes mellitus a well known disorder of current era has several direct and indirect causes for its onset. Glucose transporter type 4, also known as GLUT4, is a protein encoded by the GLUT4gene which is an insulin-regulated glucose transporter involved in insulin-regulated glucose transport into the cell. This protein is expressed primarily in muscle […]

In-silico analysis and homology modeling of Antifreeze protein type 1, Choline dehydrogenase and Betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase of an extreme psychrophile: Psychromonas ingrahamii 37

Abstract Antifreeze proteins (AFPs) are the class of polypeptides, facilitating cold-adaptation in psychrophilic organisms, whereas, Choline dehydrogenase (CHDH), and Betaine-aldehyde dehydrogenase (BADH) catalyze the production of a common osmoprotectant, glycine betaine, which owes for organism’s freeze tolerance as well. The present Bioinformatics study selects three proteins: type 1 AFP, CHDH, and BADH from an extreme […]

Screening of Indica Rice (oryza sativa 1) Genotypes against Low Temperature Stress Using Diversity Analysis

Abstract The nature and the magnitude of genetic divergence were estimated in 52 rice genotypes using Mahalonobis’s D2 – statistics. The genotypes were grouped into 8 clusters showing fair degree of relationship between geographic distribution and genetic divergence. Cluster VIII showed maximum intra cluster divergence while inter cluster divergence was maximum between clusters IV and […]

Effect of Various INM Practices on Yield, Urease and Dehydrogenase activity in Safflower

Abstract A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of organic manures in combination with inorganic nitrogen fertilizer on activity of urease and dehydrogenase and yield on safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) during rabi season 2009-10 at Students’ Farm of College of Agriculture, Rajendranagar, Acharya N. G. Ranga Agricultural University. Among the different combinations tried, […]

Optimization of inducer concentration in the medium for production of Glutaminase from Erwinia

Abstract The purpose of study was to determine effect of inducer concentrations in the medium for production of Glutaminase enzyme from Erwinia. For production of glutaminase enzyme from free cells of Erwinia, various physical and chemical parameters were optimized. The microorganism Erwinia which is a source of glutaminase was procured from Institute of Microbial Technology, […]
