BACKGROUND In animal models, extracts from green tea have been shown to be remarkably effective at reducing the severity of adverse human health effects of overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Although sunscreens and other photoprotective measures have traditionally been used for this purpose, there is a need for additional measures and natural(More)
Molluscicidal property of Azadirachta indica A. Juss (neem) against the snails Lymnaea acuminata and Indoplanorbis exustus was studied. It was observed that the molluscicidal activity of the leaf, bark, cake, neem oil and the neem-based pesticides, achook and nimbecidine, was both time- and dose-dependent. The toxic effect of pure azadirachtin against both(More)
In an effort to optimize the medium components, the statistical methodology was applied to achieve the optimum lipase production under shake flask conditions. The study was conducted in three steps on newly isolated Bacillus pumilus RK 31. In the first step, 12 different variables viz., Glucose, Olive oil, Yeast extract, Peptone, Tween 80, KH(2)PO(4),(More)
BACKGROUND Persistent lateral ankle pain is a common presentation in clinics. Various studies on anatomical variations of the peroneal compartment muscles, including the peroneus quartus muscle, have been reported in different populations. However, such studies are rarely from India. Hence, the present study was undertaken on cadavers in an Indian(More)
A new lipolytic strain of Bacillus sp. was isolated from oil contaminated soil sample. On measurement of biochemical parameters and 16S rDNA sequence information the strain was identified as Bacillus pumilus RK31 (NCBI accession no GQ463238). The lipase purification steps involved, 60% ammonium sulphate saturation, gel filtration chromatography using(More)
Following myocardial infarction (MI), the left ventricle undergoes progressive dilatation and eccentric hypertrophy, i.e., remodeling, which is greater in the adjacent than the remote region. The cellular mechanisms underlying these regional differences were studied. One (n=5) and 8 weeks (n=8) after anteroapical MI in sheep, cardiac myocytes were isolated(More)
BACKGROUND The Sysmex XN haematology instrument performs automatic reflex testing, depending on sample results. A nucleated red blood cell (NRBC) count is provided on all samples. The instrument has a smaller footprint (34%) than previous Sysmex XE analysers. METHODS An evaluation comparing all results to the Sysmex XE-2100 and manual microscopic(More)
Adult Lymnaea acuminata (average length 20-22 mm) were collected locally from lakes and low-lying submerged fields from Gorakhpur. The chemoattraction studies were made in round glass aquaria measuring 30 cm in diameter and filled to a depth of 10 mm with 500 ml dechlorinated tap water. Each aquarium was divided into four concentric zones. At the starting(More)
