It is important to understand and explore the contrasting chemical and structural composition of different alkaloids and terpenoids found in plants and micro-organisms.
The concept of personalized medicine was first promoted with pharmacogenomics data on oncology trials which demonstrated subject’s unique genetic makeup (genome) influence on their response to medications (The Office of the Commissioner FDA, 2015).
In the previous article, similar gene sequences of an established mercuric ion reductase or merA gene were identified. They were studied from the NCBI database using BLAST tool. In this article, the protein sequence of merA enzyme is studied with respect to its closely related sequences found in NCBI database, through Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA).
The CRISPR-Cas system is a form of genetic adaptive defence mechanism, found in bacteria and archaea, against invading nucleic acids and predatory viruses.
Amines are broadly classified as aliphatic and aromatic amines. Aliphatic amines are further classified as primary (1º), secondary (2º)…
