|Abstract||Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the most common Protein amyloid-associated Neurodegenerative disorder which is an irreversible and progressive patterns of cognitive and functional impairments. The neuropathological identifications and findings of AD includes presence of plaques and neurofibrillary tangles.Tau hypothesis is a model of neurofibrillary tangles where, hyper phosphorylated tau begins to misfold with other threads of tau. Ultimately, they lead to form neurofibrillary tangles in nerve cells. This involves in the disruption of microtubules, and eventually leads to breaking down of neuron’s passage coordination. This may result in a glitch of biochemical intercommunication between neurons and subsequently leads to death of neurons. Hsp90 is a highly protective molecular chaperone and its functions are stress responses, aids other proteins to fold perfectly, stabilities proteins against heat stress, and helps in protein degradation, and assembly of other vast chaperones for numerous biological purposes. Tau which is a client protein of Hsp90 has been reported to be an important cause of AD. Inhibition of Hsp90, hence has been shown to be a strategy of therapy by directing tau towards degradation pathway. In the present investigation, we have designed novel analogues of geldanamycin, novobiocin as Hsp90 inhibitors and assessed their inhibitory potential. We concluded that analogues-3 of geldanamycin was found to be a better Hsp90-inhibitor than geldanamycin.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
