We report four siblings showing features of a pontobulbar palsy, a mixed spinal and upper motor neuropathy and variable deafness. The observation of affected males and females born to consanguineous first cousin parents suggests autosomal recessive inheritance. Two children presented in the first 16 months of life with stridor and died of respiratory(More)
Two arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, Glomus mosseae and Acaulospora laevis either alone or in combination with Trichoderma viride showed the dependence of Rauwolfia serpentina on endomycorrhizal fungi. After 60 days, G. mosseae singly or in combination with Trichoderma viride showed enhanced height increment compared to control plants. Maximum phosphorus(More)
A pot experiment was performed to see the effect of two indigenous arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi Glomus mosseae and Acaulospora laevis, alone and in combination on growth, biomass and mineral nutrition of Cicer arietinum under different salinity levels imposed by 4, 8, and 12 dS/m EC solution (sodium chloride, calcium chloride and sodium sulphate). All(More)
A bioinoculation experiment was performed to see the effect of inoculation of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) on post-transplanting performance and growth enhancement of micropropagated plantlets of Glycyrrhiza glabra L. The dominant AMF Glomus mosseae and Acaulospora laevis were isolated from the rhizosphere soil of G. glabra and mass produced in(More)
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is an intriguing clinical entity. Its clinical connotations are varied, the updates of which are required to be done periodically. An attempt to bring its various facets have been made highlighting its clinical features keeping in view the major and the minor criteria to facilitate the diagnosis, differential diagnosis, complications,(More)
Atopic dermatitis is a well-recognized clinical entity, several facets of which continue to be mystified. Accordingly, its etio-pathogenesis is largely elusive. It appears to be an outcome of interplay of several undertones, namely: genetics, maternal factor and inheritance, pregnancy/intrauterine, environmental factors, immune dysregulation,(More)
BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis is a distinct age-related clinical entity. Its etiopathogenesis is largely insubstantial. Nevertheless, it seems to be an outcome of interplay of maternal and inheritance, pregnancy/intrauterine and environmental factors. Besides, immune dysregulation, and nutritional supplements also play essential roles. Its diagnosis has been(More)
Factors affecting in vitro propagation and microtuberization were evaluated for Gloriosa superba L., an endangered ornamental cum medicinal plant having limited reproductive capacity. Surface sterilization of tuber explants with 0.1% mercuric chloride (HgCl2) for 5 min eliminated the contamination effectively with highest survival rate. Among the various(More)
Pot experiment for inoculum production was undertaken in the present study with an ultimate objective for evaluation of the effect of various host plants (Triticum aestivum, Hordeum vulgare) and waste substrates (Tea residue or waste tea) on the development of AM fungus i.e. Glomus mosseae. However, efficacy of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus was also(More)
Rats implanted with chronic indwelling cannulae were injected in the lateral cerebral ventricle with two adenosine analogues and the effects on spontaneous locomotor activity and blood pressure recorded. Both analogues produced dose-related decreases in locomotor activity, with 5'-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosine (NECA) exhibiting slightly more potent depressant(More)
