Scientists from Pune college put together the genome map of Scaffold/Matrix Attachment Regions
PUNE: A crew of scientists from Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) and different institutes have, for the first time been able to prepare a map of human ‘Scaffold/Matrix Attachment Regions (S/MARs)’ which are present at the human DNA. Their paintings have been published in ‘Nucleic Acids Research Journal’ of Oxford University Press in its June 2019 problem.
Scaffold/Matrix Attachment Regions (S/MARs) are sequences in a DNA wherein nuclear rely upon attaches forming the 3-d packaging of the DNA. The scientists were also capable of locating over ninety% achievement in deducting that viruses chargeable for sicknesses such as AIDs and a few cancers integrate into this place.
“This paintings is first of its kind inside the global. We already had the information on in which virus attaches in a DNA however we didn’t have a map of S/MARs yet. After we made a map of S/MARs, we compared the two and realized that the virus integration web sites for HIV and HTVL are over ninety% in S/MARs. This studies may additionally help in improving antiviral therapeutic strategies to deal with illnesses like AIDS and cancers,” stated Abhijeet Kulkarni, lead author from Bioinformatics Centre at Savitribai Phule Pune University.
Apart from Kulkarni, the team of scientists involved Smriti Mittal (Department of Biotechnology at SPPU), Samit Chattopadhyay (NCCS, Pune and IICB, Kolkata) and their college students Nitin Narwade, Sonal Patel, Aftab Alam.
