Stage-specific expression of proto-oncogenes, including c-myc, has been demonstrated during spermatogenesis in testis. Some of these proto-oncogenes are expressed postmeiotically, especially in the round spermatid stage. Recently, we demonstrated the presence of c-myc protein in mature ejaculated sperm cells with a possible role in sperm cell function.(More)
The production of biodiesel from non-edible vegetable oil using ultrasonication, calls for an efficient solid catalyst to make the process fully ecologically and economically friendly. The methodology allows for the reaction to be run under atmospheric conditions. Solid catalyst and ultrasonication reduced the reaction time comparing to the conventional(More)
Environmental toxicants viz lead or cadmium and phthalate esters (di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate [DEHP], dibutyl phthalate [DBP], and diethyl phthalate [DEP]) widely found in different environmental strata are linked to deteriorating male reproductive health. The objective was to assess the relationships between the seminal lead, cadmium, and phthalate (DEHP,(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperlipidemia is a major risk factor of coronary heart disease. Currently available hypolipidemic drugs have been associated with number of side effects. Arogyavardhini vati, an Ayurvedic polyherbal formulation has been used for liver disorders. Therefore, present study was designed to evaluate the effect of Arogyavardhini vati in Triton(More)
Cough is the most common symptom of respiratory diseases. When cough becomes serious, opioids are effective, but they have side effects like sedation, constipation, some addiction liability and also compromise the respiratory function. Therefore, there is need to have effective anti-tussive agent which do not have respiratory suppressant activity. The(More)
Ultrasonication used for the production of fatty acid methyl ester from non-edible vegetable oil using immobilized lipase (Chromobacterium viscosum) as a catalyst from Enterobacter aerogenes to make the process fully ecologically and environmental friendly. The optimal conditions for biodiesel production is the molar ratio oil to methanol 1:4, catalyst(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Arogyavardhini vati, an Ayurvedic polyherbal formulation has been used for liver and skin disorders in the Ayurvedic system of medicine. However, toxicity due to the presence of heavy metals in this traditional medicine is a matter of concern. AIM OF THE STUDY To evaluate the safety of Arogyavardhini vati on brain, liver and(More)
There are contrary reports of association of lead and cadmium with the decline in semen quality. This study evaluates whether seminal lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) at environmental concentration are associated with altered semen quality. We conducted a study of healthy fertile and infertile men 20-43 years of age attending the Andrology Laboratory of(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES In the traditional system of medicine in India Ashwagandha powder and Sidh Makardhwaj have been used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. However, safety and efficacy of this treatment have not been evaluated. Therefore, the present study was carried out to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Ayurvedic treatment (Ashwagandha(More)
M(II) complexes of the type [HLCu(2)Cl(3)], [HLCu(2)(O(CO)CH(3))(3)], [HLM(2)Cl(4)(H(2)O)(3)] and [HLM(2)(OC(O)CH(3))(4)(H(2)O)(3)], where M=Ni(II), Co(II) have been synthesized by condensation of 3-acyl-2-one indol and hydrazinecarbothioamide (2:1) in the presence of divalent metal salt in methanolic medium. The complexes have been characterized with the(More)
