Assessment of genetic diversity and species relationships in eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) using STMS markers
Solanum melongena accessions, being crossable with cultivated species, constitute important sources of genes that can be introgressed by backcross breeding and also to monitor introgression of the useful genes. Expand
Biosynthesis of Branched Chain Amino Acids: From Test Tube to Field.
The branched chain amino acids-valine, leucine, and isoleucine-are among the 10 essential amino acids that are not synthesized in mammals and are of interest due to their importance in human and animal diets. Expand
High-resolution mapping, cloning and molecular characterization of the Pi-kh gene of rice, which confers resistance to Magnaporthe grisea
Structural and expression analysis of the Pi-kh gene revealed that its expression is pathogen inducible, and it was identified as a candidate blast-resistance gene in the region, and cloned the homologous sequence from Tetep. Expand
Antioxidant enzymes in cabbage: variability and inheritance of superoxide dismutase, peroxidase and catalase.
All enzymatic antioxidants showed high heritability along with low genetic advance as percentage of mean indicated the predominance of non-additive genes and provide good prospects for hybridization, and synthetics and hybrid development. Expand
Mitochondria: a hub of redox activities and cellular distress control
Mitochondrial events involved in apoptosis and necrotic cell death, such as activation of Bcl-2 family proteins, formation of permeability transition pore, release of cytochrome c and apoptosis inducing factors, activation of caspase cascade, and ultimate cell death is the focus of attention not only for cell biologists, but also for toxicologists in unraveling stress responses.

Diversity in Indian Equine Rotaviruses: Identification of Genotype G10,P6[1] and G1 Strains and a New VP7 Genotype (G16) Strain in Specimens from Diarrheic Foals in India
The detection of unexpected bovinerotavirus-derived G10,P6[1] reassortants, G1 serotype strains, and a new genotype (G16) strain in two distant farms reveals an interesting epidemiological situation and diversity of equine rotaviruses in India. Expand
Assay of acetohydroxyacid synthase.
A number of factors involved in detecting AHAS in crude ammonium sulfate precipitates using this spectrophotometric method are investigated and substrate and cofactor saturation levels, pH optimum, and temperature optimum have been determined. Expand

Does plant diversity drive soil microbial diversity in temperate, upland grasslands? Plants influence microbial activity around their roots by release of carbon and pot studies have shown an impactExpand
Biodegradation of lindane (γ‐hexachlorocyclohexane) by the white‐rot fungus Trametes hirsutus
The ability of the white‐rot fungus Trametes hirsutus to degrade an insecticide, lindane, in liquid culture was investigated and compared with that of Phanerochaete chrysosporium, finding the mechanism of degradation appears to be the same in both. Expand
