Cadmium is a widespread toxic pollutant of occupational and environmental concern because of its diverse toxic effects: extremely protracted biological half-life (approximately 20-30 years in humans), low rate of excretion from the body and storage predominantly in soft tissues (primarily, liver and kidneys). It is an extremely toxic element of continuing(More)

A greenhouse study was conducted to determine the effect of cadmium (Cd)-resistant Pseudomonas putida strain 710A and Commamonas aquatica strain 710B, used either alone or as a binary mixture on the toxicity of cadmium to mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) wilczek] plants. The bacterial strains 710A and 710B, isolated from the Semra mines in Ranchi, India, were(More)
The copper-resistant (1318 μM CuSO4·5H2O) strain KNP3 of Proteus vulgaris was isolated from soil near the Panki power plant, Kanpur, India, and was used to inoculate pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan var. UPS-120) seeds grown in soil for 60 days in the presence of 600 μM CuSO4·5H2O. A study of siderophore production (126.34 ± 0.52 μg ml−1) and its subsequent(More)
An experiment to investigate the compensatory growth (CG) response of Labeo rohita was conducted in two phases: a first phase (6 weeks) in which triplicate groups of fish were subjected to feed restriction (5, 25, 50 and 75 % of satiation) or satiation feeding (control) and a second phase (6 weeks) of satiation feeding for all treatment groups. CG in body(More)
In this paper, we have established coupled coincidence point results for pair of mappings in partially ordered G-metric spaces. We have defined w-compatibility in this context to ensure the uniqueness of the coupled common fixed point. There are several corollaries which extend some known results of coupled coincidence points and coupled fixed points. The(More)
Haberlandt envisioned the concept of plant tissue culture and provided the basic work for the cultivation of plant cells, tissues and organs culture. In recent years, a number of plants has been investigated and reported possessing medicinal values. Over-utilization and continuous depletion of traditional medicinal plants have affected their supply and loss(More)
An approach based on the genetic algorithm is proposed to solve system of coupled differential equation with prescribed boundary conditions. Unsteady, viscous, 2-dimensional incompressible flow over a stretching sheet with outer velocity and aligned magnetic field is considered to illustrate the approach. Coupled partial differential equations are converted(More)
