Serum samples were collected from 254 yak (Poephagus grunniens, presently Bos grunniens) in different yak tracts of India. These samples were then screened by virus neutralisation test (VNT) and avidin-biotin enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (AB-ELISA) to study the seroprevalence of antibodies against bovine herpesvirus type 1 (BHV-1). The overall(More)
BACKGROUND While the cause of Parkinson's disease (PD) remains unknown, evidence suggests certain environmental factors, such as well water drinking, herbicides, pesticides exposure and neurotoxins, may trigger the chain of oxidative reactions culminating in the death of dopaminergic neurons in substantia nigra to cause Parkinsonism. To investigate the(More)
Oxidative stress is implicated as a major factor for nigral neuronal cell death. Metabolic failure in antioxidant mechanisms could hypothetically facilitate the chemical processes that lead to lipid peroxidation. To elucidate whether elevated lipid peroxidation rates might increase risk of developing Parkinson's disease (PD), the Authors determined plasma(More)
Little information is available regarding the molecular pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD) among the Bengalee population in West Bengal, India. This study was undertaken to determine the contribution of Parkin variants in well-defined ethnically identical Bengalee population of India and further to describe the clinical spectrum associated with these(More)
