Lot of hard work goes into getting right parts as an outsider: Yami. Flickr

Actress Yami Gautam, who turned showstopper for designer Reynu Taandon here on Sunday, says walking the ramp can be unnerving but she feels fine right after she takes to the runway.

The experience at a couture gala here was “really good”, said Yami, who looked chic in an ensemble from Taandon’s ‘Once Upon a Dream’ line, which was all about a blend of pastel tones, tender flora, intricate detailing and sequin work.


Sporting a short hairdo, Yami flaunted a look which was a mix of traditional and contemporary.

Talking about it, the “Vicky Donor” actress told IANS: “When you think of Indian wear, everyone has long hair in the picture because that’s what we have in mind mostly… So I thought this will be cool to carry with an Indian outfit.”

Does she get nervous before a fashion show?

“Before the show, of course, especially when there are steps. One tends to get nervous because outfits as much as stunning they look, they are heavy, they have the cancan and layers and layers inside. So you don’t want to mess up the show, and want to be careful, feel balanced, relaxed, and have fun. I am nervous before the show, but as soon as I hit the ramp, I am fine,” she said, describing the show as “totally worth it”.

Canadian researchers have discovered an overlooked gene that plays a major role in the development of antibodies

Canadian researchers have discovered an overlooked gene that plays a major role in the development of antibodies, which help the immune system recognize and fight viruses including SARS-CoV-2, bacteria and other causes of infectious disease. The gene -- FAM72A -- facilitates production of high-quality antibodies by enabling the effect of an enzyme called AID (for Activation-Induced Deaminase), the researchers showed.

Immunologists have known for two decades that AID is essential to produce antibodies capable of clearing infections, but the full mechanism of its effect has remained unknown. "Our findings answer the long-standing question of how AID does its work," said Alberto Martin, a professor of immunology at the University of Toronto's Temerty Faculty of Medicine. "FAM72A helps AID to promote mutations in antibody genes that are essential for the development of effective antibodies," he added.
