  • Projects

    To study the effect of natural molecular crowding agents on the structure and stability of nucleic a(Not applicable)
    Nucleic acid structure and its stability entirely depend on the molecular environment, referred as molecular crowding. It has been reported so far that concentration of biomolecules reaches 400 gl-1 inside the cell and referred as molecular crowding. Molecular crowding certainly dffers from individual to individual in some respect for ex. individual suffering from diabetes or suffering from kidney failure because of the involvement and alterations of different metabolic pathways.
