Adipose tissue secretes adipokines that regulate insulin sensitivity in adipocytes and other peripheral tissues critical to glucose metabolism. Insulin resistance is associated with severe alterations in adipokines characterized by release of increased pro-inflammatory cytokines and decreased anti-inflammatory cytokines from adipose tissue. The role of(More)
In the present work the authors have introduced a new advanced symmetric key cryptographic method called NJJSAA. The authors introduced new bit manipulation method for data encryption and decryption of any file. Nath et al already developed some symmetric key methods[1,2,3,4] where they have used some randomized key matrix for encryption and decryption(More)
Naringenin, the predominant bioflavonoid found in grapefruit and tomato has diverse bioactive properties that encompass anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-atherogenic, anti-estrogenic, anti-hyperlipidemic and anti-hyperglycemic characteristics. Naringenin has not been explored for its pro-longevity traits in fruit flies. Therefore, the current study(More)
The use of folkloric medicine has been the tradition of Indian therapeutics since time immemorial. Many plant and their parts have been used as a remedy for various diseases. Alstonia is one of the most important genus of Apocynaceae family to which many pharmacological activities can be attributed. The number of alkaloids obtained from plants like(More)
Endoplasmic reticulum stress elicits unfolded protein response to counteract the accumulating unfolded protein load inside a cell. The chemical chaperone, 4-Phenylbutyric acid (4-PBA) is a FDA approved drug that alleviates endoplasmic reticulum stress by assisting protein folding. It is found efficacious to augment pathological conditions like type 2(More)
The potential of methanol extract as a potent antimicrobial agent has been observed to be an effective means to combat disease causing pathogenic organisms. Growth pattern of Escherichia coli cells showed that the growth of cells decreased with an increase in concentration of extract. The specific relationship between the specific growth rate and the(More)
Drosophila melanogaster is an ideal model organism for developmental studies. This study tests the potential of semolina-jaggery (SJ) diet as a new formulation for bulk rearing of flies. Semolina and jaggery are organic products obtained from wheat endosperm and cane sugar, respectively. Semolina is a rich source of carbohydrates and protein. Jaggery has a(More)
Hormetins are compounds that mediate hormesis by being beneficial at low doses but detrimental at high doses. Recent studies have highlighted that many compounds that extended lifespan in model organisms did so by mediating hormesis. Rutin is a glycosylate conjugate of quercetin and rutinose and is abundant in citrus fruits and buckwheat seeds. Rutin(More)
