Computational studies on Ribavirin binding to RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, inducing Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever

  The Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever is a viral disease, widespread amongst domestic as well as wild animals, and probably may affects humans too. This virus belonging to Bunyaviridae family contains viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase catalyzing the biosynthesis of the RNA strands. As a consequence of inhibition of a target enzyme protein, namely, RNA-dependent RNA polymerase there is a...

Identification of Zinnia leaf curl virus infecting Zinnia elegans in India

  In a survey during 2007 to 2009 at Gorakhpur and nearby locations of North Eastern Uttar Pradesh, India leaf curling, foliar deformation and distortion symptoms were observed on Zinnia elegans plants. The associated White fly population indicated the possible presence of begomovirus in the field. Therefore, Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was performed with the begomovirus specific primers (TLCV-CP). Total...
