Degradation of TCE and EDB

Wet cleaning” for the aquatic environment Degradation of TCE and EDB using the CYP2E1 protein in transgenic duckweed Clean water is essential to the life of all organisms. Because the environment contains toxins and xenobiotics, many organisms have evolved enzymes to degrade such harmful species to less damaging forms. In mammals, cytochrome P450s serve as […]

Gi Anandamide Cells | Biology Dissertation

Abstract We have previously shown that anandamide and its metabolically stable analog, methanandamide, produces vasorelaxation via the production of nitric oxide in rabbit aortic ring preparations, acting on a Gi-coupled, endothelial non-CB1/CB2 putative “anandamide receptor” (Mukhopadhyay et al., 2002). Recently we have demonstrated that anandamide activates endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) via the activation of […]

Mitochondrion

Abstract: Mitochondrion is the primary site of energy and ATP generation so it is called “power house” of the cell. Mitochondria are composed of two different types of membranes like an outer membrane, an inner membrane and a protein-rich matrix. Protein kinases can localize to specific cytoplasmic sub compartments and mediates many important processes like […]

Cancer is a complex lethal disease

INTRODUCTION Cancer is a complex lethal disease that is only now being understood on the molecular level. Primarily due to the variety and complexity of tumors, cancer treatment has previously been approached only through direct therapies aimed at blocking proliferation or inducing apoptosis of any rapidly dividing cell population. However, rapid advances in cancer research […]

Influenza Virus Human | Health Dissertation

Influenza Virus Human Chapter 1 Introduction Influenza Influenza virus is an important human pathogen. The virus causes epidemics annually resulting in an estimated 250,000 to 500,000 deaths worldwide (WHOa). In the USA alone, 5-20% of the population become infected every year resulting in an estimated 200,000 influenza related hospitalisations and 36,000 deaths (CDC). Influenza virus […]

Innate immunity

Introduction Innate immunity is the ancient defence system against infection that is conserved in most of organisms including prokaryotes and invertebrates throughout evolution. Among the cells that participate in the early innate immune response, natural killer (NK) cells occupies special positions, not only owing to its unique cytotoxic ability but its role between the innate […]

Tendons Macromolecules | Sciences Dissertations

Chapter One Literature Review 1.0 Introduction Tendons are dynamic structures; their extracellular matrices are continuously being synthesised and broken down over the course of an individual’s lifetime. The macromolecules, namely collagen, proteoglycans, hyaluronan and the non-collagenous proteins form the extracellular matrix of tendons. In normal tendon exists a fine balance between the synthesis and degradation […]

Extracellular matrix

INTRODUCTION The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a dynamic structure that contains a complex mixture of molecules, including elastin, collagens, laminins, fibronectin, proteoglycans and other insoluble molecules. The ECM not only provides a structural framework to support cells and divide tissues (Klein et al. 2004a;Mott & Werb 2004), but also acts as a reservoir for biologically […]

Fibroblast growth factors (fgfs) in neural induction

Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs) in neural induction Abstract Neural induction represents the first stage in the formation of the vertebrate nervous system from embryonic ectoderm. Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs), initially identified for their mitogenic and angiogenic roles in bovine brain extracts, are now known to have many developmental roles in particular that of neural induction, […]

Successful In Avoiding Dismissals

Enzyme was introduced by Kiihne in 1878, even though the first observation of enzyme activity in a test tube was done by Payen and Persoz in 1833. Enzymes are specialized proteins that make cellular work possible in all cells by helping chemical reaction to occur. these chemical reaction speed up the chemical activity by increasing […]

Electrochemical Characterization of Bovine Serum Albumin Adsorption

Blood-material interactions are critical for the performance and biocompatibility of biomedical devices implanted in thousands of patients every day. When an implant is introduced into the body, protein adsorption and activation of complement proteins occur on the foreign surface [1-3] and a series of interactions happen [4], firstly, water molecules reach the surface of the […]

Characterization Of Amyloid Fibrils and Protective Effects Of Silibinin

Amyloid fibrils are abnormal, fibrous protein deposits that grow on the outer membrane of the cells. They are insoluble and do not function to provide structural support or motility in humans. Amyloids are known to show major impact on diseases like Alzheimer’s and type II diabetes which progress over a period of time and are […]

Schizophrenia: A Review of DISC1

Schizophrenia has yet to find its breakthrough treatment despite its global prevalence. The DISC1 protein’s interactome role in neurodevelopment makes it a desirable target. Issues arise with the lack of structural data. DISC1 has been elusive until 2017 when the C-terminal domain complexed with Ndel1 was resolved with NMR. Psychotic disorders affect communities worldwide with […]
