Homeotic selector (HOX) transcription factors (TFs) regulate gene expression that determines the identity of Drosophila segments along the anterior-posterior (A-P) axis. The current challenge with HOX proteins is understanding how they achieve their functional specificity while sharing a highly conserved homeodomain (HD) that recognize the same DNA...
Article

Microalgae is emerging as a promising platform for the production of recombinant proteins of therapeutic importance. Since microalgae are safe for oral consumption and some microalgal species can form extracellular vesicles, they can potentially be used as edible vaccines or drug-delivery vehicles in addition to their status as naturally rich sourc...

Thesis
Full-text available
During formation of the anterior-posterior axis, Homeotic selector (HOX) proteins determine the identity of Drosophila body segments. HOX proteins are transcription factors that regulate gene expression during development. Besides a highly conserved DNA-binding homeodomain (HD), HOX proteins also contain functionally important, evolutionarily conse...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
During formation of the anterior-posterior axis, HOX proteins determine the identity of body segments in Drosophila. HOX proteins are transcription factors that regulate target gene expression during development. Besides a highly conserved DNA-binding homeodomain, HOX proteins also contain other conserved motifs called Short Linear Motifs (SLiMs) w...
Article
Full-text available
The bacteriophage lambda replication initiation protein P exhibits a toxic effect on its Escherichia coli (E. coli) host, likely due to the formation of a dead-end P-DnaB complex, sequestering the replicative DnaB helicase from further activity. Intracellular expression of P triggers SOS-independent cellular filamentation and rapidly cures resident...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
During formation of the anterior‐posterior axis, HOX proteins determine the identity of body segments in Drosophila. A HOX‐derived protein, Fushi tarazu (FTZ), a HOX co‐factor, Extradenticle (EXD) and the HOX proteins are transcription factors that regulate target gene expression during development. Besides a highly conserved DNA‐binding homeodomai...
Thesis
Full-text available
Bacterial viruses have been an important tool for molecular biological discoveries. Bacteriophage λ is a bacterial virus that has been intriguing researchers for over five decades. But still, we are yet to answer many questions about bacteriophage λ. λ genes, O and P play an important role in λ replication initiation. λP outcompetes host DnaC and r...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
E. coli replication licensing factor, DnaC brings DnaB helicase to the origin of E. coli replication, oriC, thus driving cell replication. Bacteriophage lambda gene product P is known to outcompete the host E. coli DnaC in binding host DnaB helicase and recruit it to the origin of lambda replication, ori-lambda, which is bound by lambda O protein....

We have mapped post-translational modifications which includes phosphorylation of the Drosophila melanogaster HOX protein, SCR extracted from developing embryos using tandem MS. Sites of phosphorylation of LAB and PB proteins have also been mapped.
