Increasing greenhouse gaseous concentration in the atmosphere is perturbing the environment to cause grievous global warming and associated consequences. Following the rule that only measurable is manageable, mensuration of greenhouse gas intensiveness of different products, bodies, and processes is going on worldwide, expressed as their carbon footprints.(More)
Defined sequence RNA synthesis by 3'-->5' direction is now well established and currently in use for synthesis and development of vast variety of therapeutic grade RNA and Si RNA etc. A number of such synthetic RNA requires a modification or labeling of 3'- end of an oligonucleotide. The synthesis of 3'- end modified RNA requiring lipophilic, long chain(More)
BACKGROUND Pesticide use in the Indian cotton industry has decreased with the introduction of Bt cotton, but rates are still high in comparison with other countries. The adoption of alternative strategies, such as integrated pest management, has been slow, even though benefits are potentially high, more so if the full costs of the external effects of the(More)
Electrophoretic separation of humic acids obtained from soil was attempted through denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (dn-PAGE) by modifying the known methods. The modifications of sample preparation and gel composition led to significant improvement in both visibility and intensity of humic acid profile. The comparative profile showed a similar(More)
Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4-related diseases) affects various tissues and organs of the human body. Orbital, adnexal, and scleral inflammations were already reported in the medical literature. To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of intraocular IgG4-associated inflammatory mass in the ciliary body mimicking as a melanoma in a 23-year-old(More)
Quantification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agricultural lands is essential for strategic planning towards GHG efficient development in India. We measured the fluxes of CH4, N2O and CO2 during cultivation of two important crops; sugarcane and pigeon pea following the closed chamber technique. Both the soils acted as net CH4 sinks, but sources of(More)
We have synthesized and studied the coupling properties of 3'-DMT-5'-CE phosphoramidites. The coupling efficiency per step surpasses 99% in the reverse-direction synthesis methodology, leading to high-purity RNA in a large number of 20- to 21-mers and long-chain oligonucleotides. Our data show that 5'→3' direction synthesis has a distinct advantage compared(More)
Random amplified polymorphic DNA-PCR (RAPD-PCR) analysis was used in combination with morphological characters to investigate genetic variations and population structure of Callosobruchus maculatus and Callosobruchus chinensis species from Bundelkhand region of India. It has proved its usefulness to get information quickly in comparatively less-studied(More)
Due to hostile condition of red mud (RM), its utilization for vegetation is restricted. Therefore, RM with biowastes as soil amendment may offer suitable combination to support plant growth with reduced risk of metal toxicity. To evaluate the effects of RM on soil properties, plant growth performance, and metal accumulation in lemongrass, a study was(More)
