Physiological attributes of a set of cyanobacterial strains, isolated from the rhizosphere of wheat (var. HD 2687), identified as belonging to the genera Calothrix (n = 3), Westiellopsis (1), Hapalosiphon (2) and Nostoc (2), were axenized and evaluated. The concentrated culture filtrates of three cyanobacterial strains — C. ghosei, H. intricatus and Nostoc(More)
The influence of high light intensity on the growth and pigment accumulating ability ofAnabaena azollae was investigated.A. azollae responded positively to high light intensity (6 klx) and was further evaluated at higher intensities (10 and 15 klx), in the presence of glucose, sucrose and jaggery ± DCMU. Significant enhancement in phycobiliproteins and(More)
Cyanobacteria are a simple, but primitive and diverse group of microorganisms, with characteristics in common to both bacteria and algae. Their success as a group in a wide range of habitats has been attributed to their unique physiological characters and high adaptive ability under a wide range of environmental conditions. The potential of cyanobacteria as(More)
In this article, an attempt is made to review methods of protein and peptidal delivery through oral and non-oral mucosal routes. Strategies that have been or are being employed to improve the bioavailability of peptides and proteins include alteration of physiological factors by absorption enhancers and enzyme inhibitors, modification of native proteins by(More)
For induction of humoral or cell-mediated immunity, development of synthetic peptide vaccines present a novel approach and a better alternative to conventional vaccines. Construction of synthetic peptides that mimic antigenic sites is the basis of this approach. In this article various methodologies involved in the peptide synthesis are discussed. This is(More)
The cyanobionts isolated from 10 Azolla accessions belonging to 6 species (Azolla mexicana, A. microphylla, A. rubra, A. caroliniana, A. filiculoides, A. pinnata) were cultured under laboratory conditions and analyzed on the basis of whole cell protein profiles and molecular marker dataset generated using repeat sequence primers (STRRmod and HipTG). The(More)
Objective: The purpose of this research was to formulate nanostructured lipid carrier system (NLCs) in such a way that they can be applied for bacterial as well as fungal infectious diseases. Methods: To achieve the prime objective, varying concentrations of clotrimazole (CLZ) and ciprofloxacin (CIPRO) were selected for formulations. Stearic acid (solid(More)
Microencapsulated gelospheres were prepared using the water swellable polymers, poly(vinyl alcohol) and polyacrylamide in which the drug was embedded. Polymeric coating was formed by interfacial polymerization using 1,6 hexamine and sebacoyl chloride. The size, shape, in vitro release, kinetics and in vivo efficiency of the formulation were determined. The(More)
