    Background: Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common malignant tumor of the thyroid gland, accounting for 74-80% of all thyroid cancers. The 1799T>A transversion is an activating mutation of the BRAF oncogene that is common in and specific to conventional PTC. We studied the...

    Oncogenic BRAF mutations are found in ~10% of colorectal cancers (CRCs) and predict poor prognosis. Although BRAF inhibitors have demonstrated striking efficacy in BRAF mutant melanomas, BRAF inhibitor monotherapy is ineffective in BRAF mutant CRC. Over the past few years, studies have begun to...

    Molecular level understanding of mutational effects on stability and activity of enzymes is challenging particularly when several point mutations are incorporated during the directed evolution experiments. In our earlier study, we have suggested the lack of consistency in the effect of point...

    The energy change on each Occupied Molecular Orbital as a function of rotation about the C-C bond in ethane was studied using the B3LYP, mPWB95 functional and MP2 methods with different basis sets. Also, the effect of the ZPE on rotational barrier was analyzed. We have found that σ and π...
