A gene that encodes for Heat Shock Factor (Hsf) was characterized and designated as TaHsf2 (Gen Bank ID KP063542) from wheat. The genomic sequence was found to be 1551bp long with open reading frame of length1123bp. The amino acid sequence so concluded showed to have HSF domain having high degree of similarity (homology) with other HSF coding gene of related species. We have reported in-silico three-dimensional model of TaHsf2 and evaluation of the predicted model, analysed with various tools. The sudden climatic variations over the years especially elevation in temperature has adversely affected the growth and productivity of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). A very less number of HSFs is being reported and characterized in wheat and the data so available for wheat calls for investigation and characterization of more HSP coding HSFs. In our present study we have cloned one of the novel HSFs and have characterized it through in silico tools.

BioRxiv & MedRxiv Preprints

BioRxiv and MedRxiv are the preprint servers for biology and health sciences respectively, operated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Here are the latest preprint articles (which are not peer-reviewed) from BioRxiv and MedRxiv.

Axon Guidance

Axon guidance is a complex neural developmental field that investigates mechanisms through which neurons send out axons to reach its target. Here is the latest research in this domain.

Cadherins and Catenins

Cadherins (named for "calcium-dependent adhesion") are a type of cell adhesion molecule (CAM) that is important in the formation of adherens junctions to bind cells with each other. Catenins are a family of proteins found in complexes with cadherin cell adhesion molecules of animal cells: alpha-catenin can bind to β-catenin and can also bind actin. β-catenin binds the cytoplasmic domain of some cadherins. Discover the latest research on cadherins and catenins here.

Adherens Junctions

An adherens junction is defined as a cell junction whose cytoplasmic face is linked to the actin cytoskeleton. They can appear as bands encircling the cell (zonula adherens) or as spots of attachment to the extracellular matrix (adhesion plaques). Adherens junctions uniquely disassemble in uterine epithelial cells to allow the blastocyst to penetrate between epithelial cells. Discover the latest research on adherens junctions here.

Adhesion Molecules in Health and Disease

Cell adhesion molecules are a subset of cell adhesion proteins located on the cell surface involved in binding with other cells or with the extracellular matrix in the process called cell adhesion. In essence, cell adhesion molecules help cells stick to each other and to their surroundings. Cell adhesion is a crucial component in maintaining tissue structure and function. Discover the latest research on adhesion molecule and their role in health and disease here.
