Gene Prioritization: Rationale, Methodologies and Algorithms

Settling on causal genes underlying susceptibility to human sickness is an issue of fundamental value within the post-genomic period and in present biomedical examine. lately, there was a paradigm shift of such gene-discovery efforts from infrequent, monogenic stipulations to universal “oligogenic” or “multifactorial” stipulations equivalent to bronchial asthma, diabetes, cancers and neurological problems.

Computational Molecular Biology An Introduction

Lately molecular biology has gone through extraordinary improvement producing immense amounts of knowledge wanting subtle computational equipment for research, processing and archiving. This requirement has given start to the really interdisciplinary box of computational biology, or bioinformatics, an issue reliant on either theoretical and functional contributions from information, arithmetic, machine technological know-how and biology.

In certain cell types, activation of p53 by therapeutic agents may induce cell cycle arrest (and DNA repair) rather than apoptosis, thus resulting in a form of protection of cancer cells against the effects of therapy. , 2006). , 2010). Tumours containing mutant p53 are more resistant to ionizing radiation than the ones with WTp53. New anticancer strategies are currently designed either to restore inactive/suppressed WTp53 or “reactivate” mutant p53, that is, to reverse the p53 mutant phenotype into WTp53 while ensuring the approaches specifically affect tumor cells, without affecting normal cells.

Activation of caspases occurs through cleavage after an aspartate residue forms large and small subunits, which together constitute the catalytic form of the enzyme (Li and Yuan, 2008). , 1997). , 2004). , 2012d). 3 HA-CURCUMIN Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) is a low molecular weight natural polyphenolic compound found in the Indian turmeric (Curcuma longa) spice. Curcuminoids give tumeric its yellow color, with curcumin as the principal curcuminoid. Curcumin exists predominantly in two tautomeric forms- keto and enol, and the enol form is more energetically stable in solid phase and solution.
