Understanding Heat Shock Protein 90 Biology And Exploring Its Potential As A Target Against Neglected Protozoan Diseases - Roy, Nainita
Cells invest a lot of energy in order to get their proteins to fold correctly and attain functionality. It is the functional proteome of a cell that defines the ‘life of a cell’. Cells have therefore employed dedicated machinery called chaperones to enable protein folding. One class of these chaperones is heat shock proteins named so because they were initially discovered to be heat inducible and particularly important during heat stress. However the role of heat shock proteins has now been extended from merely being important for stress tolerance. Heat shock proteins are prominently involved in maintaining the correct folding...
Functional Characterization And Regulation Of UvrD Helicases From Haemophilus Influenzae And Helicobacter Pylori, And Recj Exonuclease Fron Haemophilus Influenzae - Sharma, Ruchika
DNA repair processes are crucial for mutation avoidance and the maintenance of genetic integrity in all organisms. Organisms rely on repair processes to combat genotoxic stress imposed by hostile host environment, and sometimes by therapeutic agents. Most pathogens rapidly generate genetic variability to acquire increased virulence and evade host immune response. Therefore, there needs to exist a fine balance between mutation avoidance and fixation, which is perhaps regulated by repair processes. Haemophilus influenzae and Helicobacter pylori contribute significantly to morbidity and mortality caused by bacteria worldwide. H. influenzae is an obligate commensal of upper respiratory tract with the potential to...
