A bacterial mannitol-1-phosphate dehydrogenase (mtlD) gene driven by the constitutive cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) 35S promoter was transferred into tomato plants using an Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation protocol in an attempt to improve abiotic stress tolerance in the transformed plants. Transgene integration was confirmed by PCR(More)
In an attempt to improve chilling stress tolerance, an Arabidopsis C-repeat binding factor 1 (At-CBF1) gene driven by the inducible promoter RD29A was co-transferred into tomato var. Shalimar. Marker (NPTII)-free transgenic were obtained in T1 generation because of unlinked integration of CBF1 and NPTII genes. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction(More)
Marker-free transgenic cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) cv. Poinsett 76 SR plants were produced by Agrobacterium mediated transformation. A transformation efficiency of 1.62 was observed on using Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain LBA4404 harbouring Arabidopsis cbf1 gene driven by the inducible promoter RD29A in a binary vector system pCAMBIA. Transgene(More)
Carbohydrate polymer-protein blends Zanthoxylum limonella oil (ZLO) loaded microcapsules were prepared by multiple emulsion solvent evaporation technology and the influence of various processing variables on the properties of ZLO loaded microcapsules were examined systematically. It was found that the internal aqueous alginate phase volume, external aqueous(More)
BACKGROUND Euphorbia hirta L. (Euphorbiaceae) is a traditional herbal medicine used for treatment of various diseases. OBJECTIVE E. hirta was investigated for in vitro/in vivo wound healing activity using human dermal fibroblast cell line and Wistar rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Petroleum ether, chloroform, methanol and water successive extracts of E.(More)
A forward cold induced subtracted cDNA library was constructed to identify the stress regulated genes in a high altitude cold desert-adapted species Cicer microphyllum, a wild relative of cultivated chickpea, distributed in western and trans-Himalayas. A total of 1,040 clones were obtained from the subtracted cDNA library. These clones were screened for(More)
Dietary restriction (DR) influences several physiological processes, retards the incidences and severity of various age-related diseases and extends lifespan of various animal species. The effect of DR on the activities of malate–aspartate shuttle enzymes, viz. cytosolic and mitochondrial aspartate aminotransferase (c- and m-AsAT) and malate dehydrogenase(More)
The activities of malate-aspartate shuttle enzymes viz., cytosolic and mitochondrial aspartate aminotransferase (c- and m-AsAT) and malate dehydrogenase (c- and m-MDH) were measured in liver and kidney of ad libitum (AL) and dietary-restricted (DR) mice and also on triiodothyronine (T3) treatment. The results show that the activity (U/mg protein) of c-AsAT(More)
Background. Ixora coccinea L. (Rubiaceae) has been documented for traditional use in hypertension, menstrual irregularities, sprain, chronic ulcer, and skin diseases. In the present study, I. coccinea was subjected to in vitro and in vivo wound healing investigation. Methods. Petroleum ether, chloroform, methanol, and water sequential I. coccinea leaves(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Eleutherine indica L. has been used for healing of wound, painful and irregular menstruation, dysentery and lesions, and topically used as antiseptic and antimicrobial agent in folk medicine. In the present study, methanolic extracts of Eleutherine indica was subjected to scientific investigation for in-vivo cutaneous wound(More)
