This study was aimed at producing protease and lipase simultaneously on a common medium by Bacillus licheniformis VSG1, which was isolated from a tannery effluent. The effect of media composition with respect to protein source, lipid source and emulsifier on the production of protease and lipase was analysed. Both those enzymes were produced under optimized(More)
The major objective of the study was to evaluate the gastroprotective property of andrographolide, a chief component of the leaves of Andrographis paniculata in terms of the ulcer preventive effect in rats. An acute toxicity test was conducted with different concentrations of andrographolide to determine the LD(50) value. The dose responsive study was(More)
AIM To analyze the haplotype of the Ezhava population of Kerala, south India, using 8 short tandem repeat (STR) loci on the Y chromosome and trace the paternal genetic lineage of the population. METHODS Whole blood samples (n=104) were collected from unrelated healthy men of the Ezhava population over a period of one year from October 2009. Genomic DNA(More)
Weather forecasting is a crucial phenomenon in today's world. Though weather prediction is completely automated, with the help of tools like Weather Research & Forecasting (WRF), Advanced Research WRF (ARW), Weather Processing System (WPS), it's a ever challenging and a topic of interest because prediction is not an accurate always. Weather forecasting is a(More)
Proteolysis-resistant lipases can be well exploited by industrial processes which employ both lipase and protease as biocatalysts. A proteolysis resistant lipase from Bacillus pumilus SG2 was isolated, purified and characterized earlier. The lipase was resistant to native and commercial proteases. In the present work, we have characterized the lip gene(More)
The origin of the Kerala non tribal population has been a matter of contention for centuries. While some claim that Negritos were the first inhabitants, some historians suggest a Dravidian origin for all Keralites. The aim of our study has been to provide sufficient scientific evidence based on Y chromosome short tandem repeat (Y STR) analysis for tracing(More)
Antibacterial activity of aqueous and ethanol leaf extracts of Cadaba trifoliata was evaluated by cup plate method against bacterial strains such as Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Acinetobacter, Enterobacter aerogenes, Erwinia and Escherichia coli. The ethanol extract of the leaves demonstrated a high degree of activity against all the tested(More)
This paper proposes a novel approach for automating the analysis of identifying the person based on their ante mortem and postmortem reports. This approach involves three techniques (i.e.) morphological contour detector, Gaussian filtering and an existing semi-automatic contour extraction method. Forensic dentistry involves the identification of people(More)
