The ability to withstand thermal stress in a laboratory population of the blowflyLucilia cuprina (measured as per cent adult survival following varying periods of exposure to elevated temperature up to a maximum of 48°C) was in the order pupa > larva > adult. Pre-exposure to a mild heat shock (37°C) induced tolerance to temperatures which were otherwise(More)

Microparticulates are drug-containing small polymeric particles (erodible, non-erodible or ion-exchange resins) that are suspended in a liquid carrier medium. Upon administration of particle suspension in the eye, the particles reside at the delivery site (cul-de-sac, sub conjunctiva or vitreous cavity) and the drug is released from the particles through(More)
To study oil contents and fatty acid composition among the samples of Jatropha curcas L. seeds were collected from Dehradun, Uttarakhand. Soxhlet extraction method and gas chromatography (GC) were employed to determine the oil contents of Jatropha seeds and the fatty acid composition of Jatropha oil. The seed oil contents (dry basis) was 46.27%(More)
The present study was carried out to identify the chemical composition and antimicrobial activity of Hyptis suaveolens Poit. seed oil from Kalagarh region (Uttarakhand State, India). Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrum (GC-MS) analysis of the seed oil suggested high amounts (86.96 %) of unsaturated fatty acids: linoleic acid (76.13 %), oleic acid (10.83 %)(More)
Chromosomal responses to heat and heavy metal shocks were studied in the pupal trichogen polytene chromosomes of Lucilia cuprina. Heat shock induced seven distinct puffs on different chromosomes at the following loci: 1C2, 21A1, 21C, 23B, 24B, 42A and 95B3. Arsenate and mercury, two of the most common toxic environmental chemical pollutants also, induced(More)
