Endophytes are microbes which colonize inner plant tissues without causing any disease symptoms. Many of the fungi isolated as endophytes show a close morphological resemblance to plant pathogenic fungi. It is commonly believed that pathogenic/non-pathogenic fungi become endophytic/pathogenic due to virulence loss/acquisition, respectively, but the(More)
Endolichenic fungi are microbes that inhabit healthy inner lichen tissues without any disease symptoms. They have been reported to produce new and interesting bioactive metabolites. In the present study, an endolichenic fungus frequently isolated from surface-sterilized lichen thallus of Parmelia caperata has been described. The fungus was identified as(More)
A method has been developed to eliminate melanin pigments from chromosomal plates of uveal melanoma tumors. On preparing the chromosomal plates of tumor masses of posterior uveal melanoma for cytogenetic analysis in intermediate pigmented population, it was found that the melanin pigments obscured the cells and thereby the chromosomes. Thus, cytogenetic(More)
