The location of glucocorticoid receptors (GR) implicated in depression symptoms and antidepressant action remains unclear. Forebrain glucocorticoid receptor deletion on a C57B/6×129×CBA background (FBGRKO-T50) reportedly produces increased depression-like behavior and elevated glucocorticoids. We further hypothesized that forebrain GR deletion would reduce(More)
Polarized growth is critical for the development and maintenance of diverse organisms and tissues but particularly so in fungi, where nutrient uptake, communication, and reproduction all rely on cell asymmetries. To achieve polarized growth, fungi spatially organize both their cytosol and cortical membranes. Septins, a family of GTP-binding proteins, are(More)
The technique of body biasing has achieved great success in modern IC design as in it, is possible to alter the threshold voltage of MOS transistor so that device leakage and timing performance can be improved. In this paper a Schmitt trigger circuit has been designed using four types of body bias techniques. The proposed circuits were simulated in SPICE(More)
The clerodane diterpenoids 16-oxo-cleroda-3, 13(14) E-diene-15 oic acid (1) and kolavenic acid (2) isolated from Polyalthia longifolia var. pendula (Linn.) were previously reported for their antimicrobial activity. Thus present study was designed to investigate the biofilm inhibiting potential of these diterpenoids (1-2) and five new lactone derivatives(More)
Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae) is one of the major pathogen associated with nosocomial infections, especially catheter associated urinary tract infections which involved biofilm formation. This study was designed to evaluate the antibiofilm efficacy of gold nanoparticle conjugated with chlorhexidine (Au-CHX) against K. pneumoniae isolates. Au-CHX was(More)
Antibacterial/antibiofilm potential of microwave-assisted synthetic thirty-three 2-amino-5-chloro benzophenone Schiff bases have been carried out against four bacterial strains i.e. Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus mutans. Among them compounds 5, 6, 8, 9, 14, 16, 22, 24, 26, and 30-32 showed antibiofilm(More)
