Alternaria helianthi is an important seed-borne pathogenic fungus responsible for blight disease in sunflower. The current detection methods, which are based on culture and morphological identification, are time-consuming, laborious and are not always reliable. A PCR-based diagnostic method was developed with species-specific primers designed based on the(More)
Wolbachia surface protein (WSP), which is the most abundantly expressed protein of Wolbachia from the human filarial parasite Brugia malayi, was chosen for the present study. B-cell epitope prediction of the WSP protein sequence indicates a high antigenicity, surface probability and hydrophilicity by DNA STAR software analysis. ProPred analysis suggests the(More)
Optimization of chicken feather (CF) based culture medium for the production of Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis (Bti) biomass in combination with the agro industrial by-product (coconut cake, CC) and manganese chloride (MnCl2) has been evaluated. The biomass yield of Bti spore/crystal toxin was highest (12.06 g/L) from the test medium(More)
Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis (Bti) has been used for mosquito-control programmes the world-wide. Indeed, the large-scale production of Bti for mosquito control is very expensive due to the high cost of its culture. In the present study, we attempted to widen the scope in developing cost-effective culture medium for Bti production, based(More)
Pulmonary acoustic signal analysis provides essential information on the present state of the Lungs. In this paper, we intend to distinguish between normal, airway obstruction pathology and interstitial lung disease using pulmonary acoustic signal recordings. The proposed method extracts Mel frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCC) and AR Coefficients as(More)
Difference spectrophotometric method was developed for the estimation of Pioglitazone and Metformin in bulk drug and in pharmaceutical formulations. Difference spectrum obtained, by keeping Pioglitazone and Metformin separately in 0.1M NaOH in sample cell and 0.1M HCl as blank, showed characteristic peaks(λmax) at 228.1nm ( PIO) and 228.2nm (MET) and the(More)
