Toward Postgenomics Ophthalmology: A Proteomic Map of the Human Choroid-Retinal Pigment Epithelium Tissue.

Lifespan is a biological process regulated by several genetic pathways. One strategy to investigate the regulation of lifespan is to use small molecules to perturb age-regulatory pathways. Here we plan to screen compounds in a biphasic approach. To find compounds that extend and decrease lifespan of C. elegans. To date, a number of molecules are known to extend or decrease lifespan in various model organisms and are used as tools to study the biology of aging and anthelminthic.

Nature India Provides Reason for Celebration at Amrita School of Biotechnology

Every week Nature India hand-picks a selection of papers that might be of interest or relevance to the scientific community in the region.  In this regard, researchers at the Amrita School of Biotechnology (ASBT), Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, were thrilled to find that their work which was recently published in the USA based journal Bioorganic Chemistry (Kalyanvenkatraman S. et al, 66, 72-79, 2016) was the research pick of the week in Nature India
