We screened 57 Sahiwal cattle (Bos indicus) and 53 Murrah, 19 Nili-Ravi and 11 Egyptian buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis) to detect the polymorphisms at kappa-casein (CSN3) gene using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). CSN3 A and B alleles were identified by PCR-RFLP using the restriction enzymes that detect the underlying nucleotide changes at codon 136 (Taql)(More)
Different pseudo-random or pseudo-noise (PN) as well as orthogonal sequences that can be used as spreading codes for code division multiple access (CDMA) cellular networks or can be used for encrypting speech signals to reduce the residual intelligence are investigated. We briefly review the theoretical background for direct sequence CDMA systems and(More)
We introduce an effective approach for automatic offline auinjuries, illness, temperature, age and emotional state as well thentication of handwritten samples where the forgeries are skillfully done, as external factors such as alcohols and drugs [3] – an original i.e., the true and forgery sample appearances are almost alike. Subtle details piece of(More)
Climate change induced sea level rise (SLR) added with anthropogenically altered environment leads to rapid land dynamics in terms of erosion and accretion; and alteration in species diversity and productivity, more pronouncedly in sensitive ecosystems such as river deltas. Here, we tried to analyze the historical records to understand the SLR with respect(More)
Natural resistance associated macrophage protein 1 (NRAMP1), an integral transmembrane protein, is reported to influence the intraphagosomal microbial replication and thereby confer resistance to several intracellular pathogens in mice. In bovine, a significant association of (GT)(13) allelic variant of polymorphic microsatellite at 3' untranslated region(More)
Brucella abortus is a facultative intracellular pathogen that survives and replicates in host macrophages. Hence, macrophage function plays an important role in influencing natural resistance/susceptibility to intracellular pathogen. The natural resistance associated macrophage protein 1 (NRAMP1; erstwhile referred as Ity/Lsh/Bcg), a transmembrane protein,(More)
Leptin is supposed to play a crucial role in ovarian luteal dynamics. The present study was aimed to investigate the importance of leptin and its receptors in buffalo corpus luteum (CL) obtained from different stages of the estrous cycle. Real-time RT-PCR (qPCR), western blot and immunohistochemistry techniques were applied to investigate mRNA expression,(More)
Heavy metals are dangerous to aquatic organisms and it can be bioaccumulated in the food chain leading to diseases in human. Cumulative effects of metals or chronic poisoning may occur as a result of long-term exposure even to low concentrations. The accumulation of heavy metals varies depending upon the species, environmental conditions, and inhibitory(More)
Evidence obtained during recent years provided has insight into the regulation of corpus luteum (CL) development, function, and regression by locally produced ghrelin. The present study was carried out to evaluate the expression and localization of ghrelin and its receptor (GHS-R1a) in bubaline CL during different stages of the estrous cycle and investigate(More)
