Herbaceous flora of Dehra Dun
Impact of Cordyceps sinensis in the rural economy of interior villages of Dharchula sub-division of Kumaon Himalayas and its implications in the society
Cordyceps sinensis belonging to family Clavicipitaceae is a parasitic fungus on Lepidopteran larvae and is known to be used for many centuries as tonic, medicine, and aphrodisiac and in religious ceremonies in China, Indonesia and upper Himalayas.
Isolation of a serine Kunitz trypsin inhibitor from leaves of Terminalia arjuna
Observations indicate that TaTI is not only specific to tasar silkworm but also to bovine serine proteases, hence it can be considered as a generalist protease inhibitor.
Breeding systems and pollination inVigna minima (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae)
Four types of floral breeding systems are observed in the populations of Vigna minima inhabiting the Western Ghats and obligate subterranean true cleistogamy and amphicarpy appear to be adaptations to jungle fires and soil erosion.
Induction of Biomolecules in Mature Leaves of Terminalia arjuna Due to Feeding of Antheraea mylitta Drury
Investigation of the induction of biomolecules in mature leaves ofTerminalia arjuna subjected to insect feeding found increase in total tannin content, lipid peroxidation, and trypsin inhibitor activity, which is associated with defense mechanisms in relation to herbivore damage.
