Modelling calmodulin dependent calcium signalling involved with synaptic plasticity
(Lincoln University, 2018)
Neurotransmission of synapses is plastic in that they get modulated to increase or decrease conductivity (this is known as synaptic plasticity). Synaptic plasticity consists of two opposing forces: long term potentiation ...
A systems approach to identifying correlated gene targets for the loss of colour pigmentation in plants
(BMC Bioinformatics., 2011)
The numerous diverse metabolic pathways by which plant compounds can be produced make it difficult to predict how colour pigmentation is lost for different tissues and plants. This study employs mathematical and in silico ...
Remodelling circadian rhythm in Drosophila melanogaster: to investigate the role of a new clock component clockwork orange (CWO)
(Lincoln University, 2015)
The ability of almost all organisms to change their behaviour on a daily basis is one of the remarkable features of life on earth. This phenomenon which is called circadian rhythm is observed in diverse organisms such as ...
Modelling of circadian rhythms in Drosophila incorporating the interlocked PER/TIM and VRI/PDP1 feedback loops
Circadian rhythms of gene activity, metabolism, physiology and behaviour are observed in all the eukaryotes and some prokaryotes. In this study, we present a model to represent the transcriptional regulatory network essential ...
Microarray data integration: frameworks and a list of underlying issues
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2010-12)
Microarray technology is expanding rapidly providing an extensive as well as promising source of data for better addressing complex questions involving biological processes. The ever increasing number and publicly available ...
A nutrient dependant switch explains mutually exclusive existence of meiosis and mitosis initiation in budding yeast
Nutrients from living environment are vital for the survival and growth of any organism. Budding yeast diploid cells decide to grow by mitosis type cell division or decide to create unique, stress resistant spores by meiosis ...
