BACKGROUND Stem barks of Mangifera indica contain a rich content of mangiferin (xanthone glucoside), whereas Murraya koenigii leaves contain rich sources of mahanimbine (carbazole alkaloid) and used traditionally for the treatment of diabetes. OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of mangiferin (xanthone glucoside) and mahanimbine (carbazole alkaloid) on(More)
A hyperthermophilic bacterium has been isolated from autoclaved sediments which were originally collected from a hot spring site (Soldhar) located in Tapovan area in District Chamoli of Indian Himalayan Region. The bacterium exhibited growth between 55 and 95 °C under laboratory conditions. The growth curves, drawn at different temperatures (55, 65, 75, 85(More)
Natural language is a mechanism and a way for humans to express himself or herself. In order to understand what has been expressed, language analysis at different levels has to be done. Just like formal languages, natural language also has definite structure and follows a grammar, which may be an exhaustive one. Sometimes it is dynamic, as the natural(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the nephroprotective potential of resveratrol and piperine at same dose on cationic bovine serum albumin (cBSA) induced immune complex glomerulonephritis (ICGN) in BALB/c mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS Female BALB/c mice were divided into five groups. Group I served as normal control (complete Freund's(More)

However, sedentary behaviour is considered a health risk independent of physical activity, and is recognised in public(More)
Twenty-eight bacterial cultures, isolated from hot springs in Uttarakhand, were characterized with particular reference to their wide temperature and pH tolerance and production of enzymes in the thermophilic range. All the bacterial isolates were observed as Gram-positive or variable rods in varied arrangement. Bacterial isolates exhibited tolerance to a(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Pre-clinical toxicology evaluation of biotechnology products is a challenge to the toxicologist. The present investigation is an attempt to evaluate the safety profile of the first indigenously developed recombinant DNA anti-rabies vaccine [DRV (100 μg)] and combination rabies vaccine [CRV (100 μg DRV and 1.25 IU of cell(More)
