Deterioration of membranes caused by lipoxygenase (LOX) activity under 10 µM PbCl2 or 10 µM HgCl2 was partially alleviated by the exogenous application of 100 µM salicylic acid (SA). In two cultivars of rice (Oryza sativa L. cvs. Ratna and IR 36), the presence of SA ameliorated the increased leakage of electrolytes, injury index, and the content of(More)
RNA interference (RNAi) using short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) has been widely explored for the suppression of intracellular viral target mRNAs. On the basis of our previous work with stable silencing of Tomato leaf curl virus, in vivo by the antisense replicase gene (AC1) of the virus and characterizing AC4, as a small RNA regulator, besides its role in(More)
BACKGROUND Animal, epidemiologic, and human clinical studies suggest a putative role for vitamin D in osteoarthritis (OA). Inadequate sunlight exposure and lower serum levels of 25(OH)D appear in some reports to be associated with an increased risk for progression of knee OA. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We asked whether treatment with vitamin D would (1) reduce(More)
The intense intrinsic fluorescence emissions from several clinically relevant camptothecin drugs have been exploited in order to determine (1) the structural basis of drug binding to lipid bilayers, (2) the lipid bilayer stability of each drug's alpha-hydroxylactone moiety, a pharmacophore which is essential for antitumor activity, and (3) the site of drug(More)
Towards the development of a potential remediation technology for multiple heavy metals [Zn(II), Cu(II), Cd(II), Cr(VI) and Ni(II)] from contaminated water, present study examined the growth kinetics and heavy metal removal ability of Beauveria bassiana in individual and multi metals. The specific growth rate of B. bassiana varied from 0.025h(-1) to(More)
Germination of two rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivars (Ratna and IR 36) in the presence of 10 µM PbCl2 and 10 µM HgCl2 decreased germination percentage, germination index, shoot/root length, tolerance index and dry mass of shoots and roots. Mercury was more toxic than lead. Reduced glutathione (GSH), cysteine (Cys), ascorbic acid, and α-tocopherol alleviated(More)
INTRODUCTION The progressive nature of type 2 diabetes necessitates treatment intensification. This often involves intensification with oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs) initially, followed by other agents, such as glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RAs), with the majority of patients eventually requiring insulin therapy. Therefore, this trial(More)
The functionality of sensory neurons is defined by the expression of specific sensory receptor genes. During the development of the Drosophila larval eye, photoreceptor neurons (PRs) make a binary choice to express either the blue-sensitive Rhodopsin 5 (Rh5) or the green-sensitive Rhodopsin 6 (Rh6). Later during metamorphosis, ecdysone signaling induces a(More)
In this paper we describe a selection based detection method for spectrum sensing in cognitive radio which is a combination of both energy detection and covariance absolute value detection method. Comparison is made between energy detection and covariance absolute value methods for different type of input data. It is shown from the simulation results and(More)
Information generated from animal models, genome sequencing, and high-throughput technologies provide valuable sequence of events to understand the Parkinson’s disease (PD) pathogenesis. A dynamic equilibrium between biosynthesis and biodegradation of sub-cellular components by ubiquitin proteasome system and autophagy is found to be responsible for(More)
