β-Defensins from common goby (Pomatoschistus microps) and silver trevally (Pseudocaranx georgianus): Molecular characterization and phylogenetic analysis

Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are biologically lively molecules concerned in host protection current in a wide range of organisms. They’re an integral part of innate immunity, forming a entrance line of protection in opposition to potential pathogens, together with antibiotic-resistant ones. Fishes are confirmed to be a potential supply of AMPs as they’re consistently being challenged…

KRAS G12C-mutant non-small-cell lung cancer: biology, developmental therapeutics, and molecular testing

KRAS mutation is the most typical oncogenic driver in superior non-small cell lung most cancers (NSCLC), occurring in roughly 30% of lung adenocarcinomas. Over 80% of oncogenic KRAS mutations happen at codon 12 the place the glycine residue is substituted by completely different amino acids, resulting in genomic heterogeneity of KRAS-mutant tumors. The KRAS glycine-to-cysteine…

Understanding the molecular evolution of tiger diversity through DNA barcoding marker ND4 and NADH dehydrogenase complex using computational biology

Background: Presently, Tigers (the highest predator of an ecosystem) are on the listing of endangered species. Thus the necessity is to know the tiger’s inhabitants genomics to design their conservation methods. Goal: We analyzed the molecular evolution of tiger range utilizing NADH dehydrogenase subunit 4 (ND4), a big electron transport chain part. Strategies: We now have analyzed nucleotide…
