How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

In-silico techniques offer a fast, accurate, reliable, and economical approach to studying the molecular interactions between compounds and proteins. In this study, our main aim is to use in-silico techniques as a rational approach for the prediction of the molecular drug targets for luteolin against Plasmodium falciparum. Multi-target molecular do...

Drug resistance, toxicity, and adverse effects of current antimalarial drugs have mandated the need to search for newer antimalarial agents. The present study aims to identify promising flavonoid-glycosides (FGs) from Acacia pennata as possible antimalarial agents effective against PfDHFR-TS (PDB ID: 3DGA) by in-silico studies. The co-crystal inhib...

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has infected billions and has killed millions to date. Studies are being carried out to find therapeutic molecules that can potentially inhibit the replication of SARS-CoV-2. 3-chymotrypsin-like protease (3CL pro) involved in the polyprotein cleavage process is believed to be the key targ...
Evolutionary history of coronaviruses holds the key to understand mutational behavior and prepare for possible future outbreaks. By performing comparative genome analysis of nidovirales that contain the family of coronaviruses, we traced the origin of proofreading, surprisingly to the eukaryotic antiviral component ZNFX1. This common recent ancesto...
Recently dietary and plant-derived phytochemicals are rising into limelight as many people developed a propensity towards opting nature-dependent healthy lifestyle. Scientific advancements highlight the effectiveness of phytochemicals in the treatment of many diseases and for various lifestyle benefits. Traditionally used in medicines, food supplem...
Objectives: Acute pancreatitis (AP) is an inimical disorder associated with overall mortality rates between 10-15%. It is a disorder of the exocrine pancreas which is characterized by local and systemic inflammatory responses primarily driven by oxidative stress and death of pancreatic acinar cells. The severity of AP ranges from mild pancreatic e...
GPCRs have evolved as highly specialized cellular machinery that can dictate biological outcomes in response to diverse stimuli. Specifically, they induce multiple pathway responses upon structural perturbations induced at local protein sites. GPCRs utilize concurrent strategy involving a central transmembrane topology and biochemical modifications...
A plethora of tissues in our body possess the capability to regenerate barring a few like heart muscles and nerve tissue which cannot regenerate resulting in numerous critical health conditions and diseases (such as cardiovascular, haemato-poietic diseases). Tissue engineering techniques were opted to address this issue by using biomaterials of hum...
