Climate change-a significant variation in the usual pattern of Earth's average weather conditions is a product of this ecosystem imbalance, and the rise in the Earth's average temperature (global warming) is a prominent evidence.(More)
Isolation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) is fraught with challenges including, but not limited to, the cost of limited gradients available for the isolation of PBMCs. Glycerol gradient (1.077 g/ml) was used to isolate PBMCs from adult peripheral blood. The differentiation potential of the isolated cells was assessed by culturing the cells in(More)
