In the present study, the effect of l-ascorbic acid (AA) was studied on the climbing ability of the Parkinson's disease (PD) model Drosophila expressing normal human alpha synuclein (h-αs) in the neurons. These flies show locomotor dysfunction as the age progresses. AA at final concentration of 11.35 × 10(-5) M, 22.71 × 10(-5) M, 45.42 × 10(-5) M, and 68.13(More)
In mobile ad-hoc networks, the mobile nodes are able to move randomly and freely without any centralized administration or control. The mobile nodes in such networks act both as routers and as hosts. The wireless and distributed nature of ad hoc networks implies a major challenge since the chances of losing packets over the network increases to a great(More)
All living organisms respond to various physical or chemical stressors by the induction of heat shock protein (HSP). The present study was performed on transgenic Drosophila melanogaster (hsp70-lacZ) Bg(9) in which the transformation vector is inserted with a P-element, the line contains wild-type hsp70 sequence up to the lacZ fusion point. The effect of(More)
A Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is a self-organizing, infrastructure less, multi-hop network. The wireless and distributed nature of MANETs poses a great challenge to system security designers. Congestion takes place in MANETs with limited resources. In these networks, shared wireless channel and dynamic topology leads to interference and fading during(More)
Capsaicin (trans-8-methyl-N-vanillyl-6-nonenamide) is the main component in hot peppers, including red chili peppers, jalapenos, and habanero, belonging to the genus Capsicum. Capsaicin is a potent antioxidant that interferes with free radical activities. In the present study, the possible protective effect of capsaicin was studied against methyl(More)
