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 report the complete genome sequence of the Sungri/96 vaccine strain of peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV). The whole-genome nucleotide sequence has 89 to 99% identity with the available PPRV genome sequences in the NCBI database. This study helps to understand the epidemiological and molecular characteristics of the Sungri/96 strain.
ABO incompatibility has been considered as an important immunological barrier for renal transplantation. With the advent of effective preconditioning protocols, it is now possible to do renal transplants across ABO barrier. We hereby present a single center retrospective analysis of all consecutive ABOi renal transplants performed from November 2011 to… (More)
The canine parvovirus NS1 (CPV2.NS1) protein selectively induces apoptosis in the malignant cells. However, for an effective in vivo tumor treatment strategy, an oncolytic agent also needs to induce a potent anti-tumor immune response. In the present study, we used poly (I:C), a TLR3 ligand, as an adjuvant along with CPV2.NS1 to find out if the combination… (More)
Here, we present the draft genome sequence and annotation of Brucella abortus virulent strain 544. The genome of this strain is 3,289,405 bp long, with 57.2% G+C content. A total of 3,259 protein-coding genes and 60 RNA genes were predicted.
Tissue culture techniques are now becoming important tools of crop improvement and rapid multiplication of selected clones. There has been considerable interest in applying these techniques in breeding, propagation, disease elimination, rejuvenation of older varieties, development of clones suitable for abiotic and biotic stresses, conservation of genetic… (More)
Many viruses have the ability to modulate the apoptosis, and to accomplish it; viruses encode proteins which specifically interact with the cellular signaling pathways. While some viruses encode proteins, which inhibit the apoptosis or death of the infected cells, there are viruses whose encoded proteins can kill the infected cells by multiple mechanisms,… (More)
Role of endochitinase (ech42) gene in Trichoderma was worked out to prove the efficacy against most dreaded red rot disease of sugarcane caused by Colletotrichum falcatum Went. Trichoderma spp. along with Trichoderma harzianum strain and Aspergillus awamori were tested against the virulent pathotypes of C. falcatum (Cf08, Cf09 and Cf401) under in vitro and… (More)
Three antimicrobial compounds viz. mercuric chloride (HgCl2), sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) and bleaching powder, (CaOCl2) were tested at various concentrations to find out an effective chemical agent for sterilization of nutrient media for in vitro micropropagation of sugarcane. The best result was obtained in presence of NaClO at 0.1 % concentration where… (More)
Red rot behavior of 50 somaclones of sugarcane variety CoS 88230, was studied by plug and nodal methods of inoculation using a mixture of four isolates of Colletotrichum falcatum. The results revealed that most of the somaclones had red rot susceptibility to varying degrees except four somaclones viz. SC-15, 20, 22 and 30, which were found moderately… (More)
