The association between [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) counts obtained 8 h before death and neurofibrillary tangle (NFT) staining density in a patient with Alzheimer's disease (AD) was evaluated. In our patient FDG-PET counts were globally decreased with a greater focal deficit in the left medial temporal region independent(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative disorders with limited clinical interventions. A number of epidemiological as well as case-control studies have revealed an association between pesticide exposure, especially of paraquat (PQ) and occurrence of PD. Hsp70, a molecular chaperone by function, has been shown as one of the(More)
Rab11(mo), a P insertion line of Rab11 showed degenerated ommatidia and excess cell death in larval/pupal eyes. Here, we demonstrate that Rab11 is essential for normal organization of ommatidial cells and their survival in Drosophila, and a mutation in this gene results in cytoskeleton disruption and activation of JNK signaling in the eye. The spatial(More)
In an effort to identify the role of Rab11, a small GTP binding protein, during Drosophila differentiation, phenotypic manifestations associated with different alleles of Rab11 were studied. The phenotypes ranged from eye-defects, bristle abnormalities and sterility to lethality during various developmental stages. In this paper, our focus is targeted on(More)
fourth of the post fault cycle is used as input to proposed modular LS-SVM classifier. The proposed scheme uses four binary classifier; three for selection of three phases and fourth for ground detection. The proposed classification scheme is found to be accurate and reliable in presence of noise as well. The simulation results validate the efficacy of(More)
We survey basic properties and bounds for q-equivelar and d-covered triangulations of closed surfaces. Included in the survey is a list of the known sources for q-equivelar and d-covered triangulations. We identify all orientable and non-orientable surfaces M of Euler characteristic 0 > χ(M) ≥ −230 which admit non-neighborly q-equivelar triangulations with(More)
In vitro antioxidant virtue and life-prolonging effect of phycoerythrin (PE; a pigment protein isolated from Phormidium sp. A09DM) have been revealed in our previous reports (Sonani et al. in Age 36:9717, 2014a; Sonani et al. in Process Biochem 49:1757–1766, 2014b). It has been hypothesized that the PE expands life span of Caenorhabditis elegans (bears(More)
AIM Gastric dysfunctions are commonly seen after scorpion envenomation, and the underlying mechanisms are not clear. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to investigate the effect of Indian red scorpion (Mesobuthus tamulus, MBT) venom on gastric fundus muscle contraction and the underlying mechanisms involved. MATERIALS AND METHODS In vitro(More)
