Final Project: A Molecular Phylogenetic Approach for Identification of Novel Drug Targets
Abstract: Reductive Evolution provide a pathogen minimal gene set, due to loss of genes, for drug target identification biochemical techniques can not be used as these pathogens are difficult to culture.M.leprae has shown example of this phenomenon.
Besides classical drug targets i.e., toxins, adhesions using molecular phylogeny approach we can identify some novel drug targets.
Horizontally transferred genes in bacterial pathogens from their eukaryotic hosts have been classified as “Novel Drug Targets” and a reusable system for identifying novel drug targets has been built.
I identified two genes in this pathogen and also found relevance of their transfer i,e., how their transfer enhances pathoadeptivity of leprae
