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

Host-pathogen interaction is the most crucial factor that evokes the host immune system to fight against pathogens. In contrast to specialized immune cells present in humans and animals, plants have disease resistance (R-) and disease susceptibility (S-) genes. R-genes confer disease resistance and are generally introgressed from wild crop relative...
Aquaporins constitute a family of transmembrane proteins that function to transport water and other small solutes across the cell membrane. Aquaporins family members are found in diverse life forms. Aquaporins share the common structural fold consisting of six transmembrane alpha helices with a central water-transporting channel. Four such monomers...
Regulation of water transport via aquaporins is crucial for osmoregulation and water homeostasis of an organism. This transport of water is regulated either by gating or trafficking wherein AQPs are transported from intracellular storage sites to plasma membrane. It has been proposed that water movement via AQP2 is regulated by post-translational m...
Vaccines remain the most efficacious means to avoid and eliminate morbid diseases associated with high morbidity and mortality. Clinical trials indicate the gaining impetus of peptide vaccines against diseases for which an effective treatment still remains obscure. CD4 T-cell-based peptide vaccines involve immunization with antigenic determinants f...
Heterogeneous and ever-expanding biological data requires proportional growth in both computing power, as well as data storage, to collate, manage, analyze, and predict its function. Computational researchers have created various databases and software, or web servers that can be used to predict functional relationships among proteins and/or enzyme...
Aristaless (Al) and clawless (Cll) homeodomains that are involved in leg development in Drosophila melanogaster are known to bind cooperatively to 5?-(T/C)TAATTAA(T/A)(T/A)G-3? DNA sequence, but the mechanism of their binding to DNA is unknown. Molecular dynamics (MD) studies have been carried out on binary, ternary, and reconstructed protein?DNA c...
Aristaless (Al) and clawless (Cll) homeodomains that are involved in leg development in Drosophila melanogaster are known to bind cooperatively to 5'-(T/C)TAATTAA(T/A)(T/A)G-3' DNA sequence but the mechanism of their binding to DNA is unknown. Molecular dynamics (MD) studies have been carried out on binary, ternary and reconstructed protein-DNA com...
The beginning of the second century of research in the field of virology (the first virus was discovered in 1898) was marked with its amalgamation with bioinformatics resulting in the birth of a new domain - viroinformatics. The availability of more than 100 web servers and databases embracing all or specific viruses (for example dengue, influenza,...
