The Escherichia coli biotin ligase enzyme BirA has been extensively used in recent years to generate site-specifically biotinylated proteins via a biotin acceptor peptide tag. In the present study, BirA was displayed for the first time on the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae using the Aga1p-Aga2p platform and assayed using a peptide-tagged protein as the(More)
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea occurs due to communication between the intracranial subarachnoid space and the sinonasal mucosa. It could be due to trauma, raised intracranial pressure (ICP), tumors, erosive diseases, and congenital skull defects. Some leaks could be spontaneous without any specific etiology. The potential leak sites include the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the feasibility of laparoscopy in the treatment of pediatric urolithiasis, we report our experience with the transperitoneal laparoscopic removal of stones. METHOD Renal pelvic stones of size ≥1 cm on ultrasound were included for laparoscopic pyelolithotomy while smaller stones were managed with shock-wave lithotripsy monotherapy.(More)
We present RODEO, a RObust and rapidly DEplOyable wireless mesh network designed for applications such as disaster management. Natural disasters often destroy existing communication infrastructure, thus forcing rescue teams to deploy their own networks for communication. Such networks must be rapidly deployable, capable of recovering from node failure, have(More)
INTRODUCTION Neurosurgery is a branch having a tough learning curve. Residents generally get very less hands-on exposure for advanced procedures like neuroendoscopy. With the limited number of cadavers available and ethical issues associated with animal models, practice models, and simulators are becoming the able alternative. Most of these simulators are(More)
Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is one of the most common neurosurgical conditions. There is lack of uniformity in the treatment of CSDH amongst surgeons in terms of various treatment strategies. Clinical presentation may vary from no symptoms to unconsciousness. CSDH is usually diagnosed by contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan. Magnetic resonance(More)
BACKGROUND Pituitary masses are common lesions accounting for about 15-20% of all brain tumours. Oozing blood is an annoyance in microscopic sublabial trans-sphenoidal approach for these masses. There have been many ways of reducing the ooze, having their own pros and cons. OBJECTIVE To find out the efficacy and safety of clonidine in reducing blood loss(More)
Introduction Posterior midline laminectomy is associated with risks of postoperative instability, spinal deformity, extensive bilateral subperiosteal muscle stripping, partial or total facetectomy especially in foraminal tumor extension, increased cerebrospinal fluid leakage, and wound infection. Minimally invasive approaches with the help of a microscope(More)
