Oxidative stress and antioxidant activity as the basis of senescence in maize leaves
The results suggest that leaf senescence in general and earlysenescence of early cv. Expand
Molecular Analysis of Vibrio choleraeO1, O139, non-O1, and non-O139 Strains: Clonal Relationships between Clinical and Environmental Isolates
It was concluded that the non-cholera-toxin-producing strains of V. cholerae, whether of clinical or environmental origin, possess the ability to produce a new secretogenic toxin that is entirely different from the toxin produced by toxigenic V. Cholerae. Expand
Karnal bunt: A minor disease that is now a threat to wheat
The increased geographic distribution of Karnal bunt may be due to the development and wide distribution of wheat cultivars that were more susceptible than the older wheats that were grown in India prior to 1969–70. Expand
Role of antibiosis in the biological control of spot blotch (Cochliobolus sativus) of wheat by Chaetomium globosum
The results showed high antifungal metabolite production by isolate Cg 2, which also gave maximum bioefficacy under laboratory and glasshouse conditions. Expand
Long-distance dispersion of rust pathogens.
The purpose of this chapter is to describe some of the evidence and routes by which long­ distance dispersal of plant pathogens is known to occur in various parts of the world. Expand
Bovine tuberculosis in India: potential basis for zoonosis.
The present paper deciphers the utility of this nested-PCR assay for identification of pathogenic Mycobacteria in clinical samples and denotes the prospect of potential transmission of these pathogens from humans to cattle and vice versa (reverse zoonosis). Expand
Report of a 60 month study on litter production, changes in soil chemical properties and productivity under Poplar (P. deltoides) and Eucalyptus (E. hybrid) interplanted with aromatic grasses
Populus deltoides plantation was superior to E. hybrib in enriching the soil and its chemical composition, nutrient addition and changes in chemical constituents of soil were studied under agroforestry systems. Expand
Development of a Hexaplex PCR Assay for Rapid Detection of Virulence and Regulatory Genes in Vibrio cholerae and Vibrio mimicus
ABSTRACT We have developed a hexaplex PCR assay for rapid detection of the virulence and regulatory genes for cholera toxin enzymatic subunit A (ctxA), zonula occludens toxin (zot), accessory choleraExpand
Molecular Characterization of Vibrio cholerae O139 Bengal Isolated from Water and the Aquatic Plant Eichhornia crassipes in the River Ganga, Varanasi, India
Results obtained by ribotyping and enterobacterial repetitive intergenic consensus sequence-PCR fingerprint analysis indicate that multiple clones of toxigenic-pathogenic V. cholerae O139 were present in the aquatic environment. Expand
