Abstract Coconut oil (CO), the primary choice of cooking purposes in the south Asian countries, is rich in medium chain saturated fatty acids, especially lauric acid (50–52%). The oil has high medicinal use in Ayurvedic system and known to contain polyphenolic antioxidants. Studies have reported that CO improves insulin sensitivity and shows hypoglycemic effect. However, there is no information regarding its effect on chronic diabetic complications including retinopathy and nephropathy is availa...
Breast cancer (BC) is a serious lifestyle disease. There are several prognostic biomarkers like nuclear receptors whose over-expression is associated with BC characteristics. These biomarkers can be blocked by compounds with anti-cancer potential but selection must be made on the basis of no adverse side effects. This study is focused on finding of compounds from a plant source garlic.Twenty compounds from garlic and five targets considered involved in BC were retrieved from Pubchem database and...
Pseudarthria viscida is an ethno-medicinal plant and is a component of Dasamoola in Ayurveda. The plant is used in the treatment of diseases such as fever, dysentery, cardiac ailments, rheumatoid arthritis and is also effective in the fast healing of fractured bone. Results from multiple research studies emphasize the therapeutic importance of bioactive principles of Pseudarthria viscida in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. However, the exact compounds and their mechanism in anti-arthritic ...
Inter Simple Sequence Repeats (ISSR) assay was performed to fingerprint ginger varieties released from Kerala Agricultural University, Vellanikkara, Keralaviz., “Athira”, “Karthika” and “Aswathi” and three selected superior somaclones of ginger viz., B3, 478R and 88R and source parent cultivars Maran and Rio-de-Janeiro. Good quality genomic DNA was extracted from ginger varieties/somaclones and source parent cultivars using CTAB method. Thirty ISSR primers were screened for amplification of geno...

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is the leading cause for liver disorders and can lead to hepatocellular carcinoma, cirrhosis and liver damage which in turn can cause death of patients. HBV DNA Polymerase is essential for HBV replication in the host and hence is used as one of the most potent pharmacological target for the inhibition of HBV. Chronic hepatitis B is currently treated with nucleotide analogues that suppress viral reverse transcriptase activity and most of them are reported to have...

Objective: The aim of our study was to validate the accuracy of computational tools in drug discovery and molecular interaction studies by studying the inhibitory activity of various commercial drugs on DPP-4. Methods: In order to validate the accuracy of computational tools, 50 commercially available drugs were docked with DPP-4, a major target for type 2 diabetes treatment. Studies were performed using Discovery studio 3.5. Results: The analysis showed that out of the fifty selected drugs, 33 ...

Inspite of the large body of genomic data obtained from the transcriptome of Zingiber officinale, very few studies have focused on the identification and characterization of miRNAs in gingerol biosynthesis. Zingiber officinale transcriptome was analyzed using EST dataset (38169 total) deposited in public domains. In this paper computational functional annotation of the available ESTs and identification of genes which play a significant role in gingerol biosynthesis are described. Zingiber offici...
