Targeting protein acetylation for improving cancer therapy
BS Dwarakanath, A Verma, AN Bhatt, VS Parmar, HG Raj
July 2008, 128(1):13-21
PMID:18820353
Acetylation is one of the most important post-translational modification of proteins determining the structure, function and intracellular localization that plays an important role in the signal transduction pathways related to diverse cell functions, both during unstimulated and stress conditions. Protein acetylation in cells is regulated by a co-ordinated action of histone acetyl transferases (HAT) and histone deacetylases(HDAC) that ensures the maintenance of homeostasis and execution of activities related to damage response viz. DNA repair, cell cycle delay, apoptosis and senescence. Since inhibition of histone deacetylation, stalls the progress of many nuclear events including proliferation and damage response events on the one hand and the levels of deacetylases are elevated in many tumours on the other. Histone deacetylase has been among the targets for the development of anticancer drugs and adjuvant. The recent observation showing acetylation of proteins by calreticulin (an endoplasmic reticulum resident protein) with a high efficiency when polyphenolic acetates are the acetyl group donating molecules and acetyl CoA as weak substrate extends the realm of protein acetylation beyond HAT/HDAC combination. Elucidation of the relative roles of HAT/HDAC mediated acetylation viz. a calreticulin mediated acetylation in cell function under a variety of stress conditions would hold key to the design of drugs targeting protein acetylation system.

Biological control of mosquito populations through frogs : opportunities & constrains
K Raghavendra, P Sharma, AP Dash
July 2008, 128(1):22-25
PMID:18820354
The use of frogs and tadpoles for disease vector control is still largely unexplored. Frogs are an important part of the ecosystem with a role for insect and pest control including mosquitoes. Available information suggests the existence of many direct and indirect factors affecting the growth and survival of both prey and predators. Other controphic species that have influence on this relationship also show considerable effect. Still, the associations of different prey and predator relationships in the environment to assess the feasibility of use of a species as biocontrol agent for vector control and management. However, frogs cannot be used as an independent intervention for disease vector control and more research is needed to use them effectively for mosquito control.
