Out of 7846 serum samples received in the virology laboratory from suspected dengue cases during 2002 to 2008, 2366 (30.15%)(More)
Oxalate decarboxylase (OXDC) enzyme has immense biotechnological applications due to its ability to decompose anti-nutrient oxalic acid. Flammulina velutipes, an edible wood rotting fungus responds to oxalic acid by induction of OXDC to maintain steady levels of pH and oxalate anions outside the fungal hyphae. Here, we report that upon oxalic acid(More)

Cloprostenol is a synthetic prostaglandin F analogue. It is a FP (Prostaglandin F) receptor agonist, which shows 2α powerful luteolytic effects. It also stimulates the contraction of uterine and bronchial smooth muscle and produces vasoconstriction in some vessels. Anoestrous may be due to some conditions like abnormal pregnancy, early pregnancy, pyometra,(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an important nosocomial pathogen is difÞ cult to treat because of high antimicrobial resistance.[1] The common form of resistance is mediated by lack of drug penetration and / or carbapenem hydrolyzing ß-lactamases.[2] Detection of metallo ß lactamase (MBL)producing P. aeruginosa is crucial for the optimal treatment of patients.
