Heavy metal ions such as cobalt (Co), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), molybdenum (Mo), nickel (Ni), and zinc (Zn) are considered essential/beneficial for optimal plant growth, development, and productivity. However, these ions readily impact functions of many enzymes and proteins, halt metabolism, and exhibit phytotoxicity at supra-optimum supply.(More)
The present study investigated the effect of Arsenic (As; 5, 10, 50 μM) on protein and sugar metabolism vis-à-vis oxidative damage during early germination process and radicle emergence (at 12, 24 and 48 h stage) in Phaseolus aureus. As-exposure (50 μM) significantly enhanced protein content (by 40–60%), whereas carbohydrate content declined (by 31–44%)(More)
Nickel (Ni) is a trace element essential for the growth and development of plants. Conversely, when in excess, Ni inhibits seed germination and reduces seedling growth. Therefore, we investigated the effect of Ni+2 (5–50 μM; supplied as nickel sulfate: NiSO4·6H2O) on the activity of enzymes involved in sugar metabolism of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)(More)
From the present study it can be concluded that both the procedures have their own importance and no one can substitute the other, in diagnosing all the diseases. HSG has been found to be more rewarding in cases of abnormalities of the lumen of uterus and fallopian tubes for their patency. On the other hand laparoscopy has been more rewarding for the(More)
Alkaptonuria is a rare disorder of metabolism caused by deficiency of homogentisic acid oxidase enzyme and characterized by triad of homogentisic aciduria (dark urine), relentlessly progressive arthritis and ochronosis. We have documented a case with typical features of alkaptonuria along with intramedullary calcification which has not been reported in the(More)
