Small RNAs (sRNAs) are 18-30 nt non-coding regulatory elements found in diverse organisms, which were initially identified as small double-stranded RNAs in Caenorhabditis elegans. With the development of new and improved technologies, sRNAs have also been identified and characterized in plant systems. Among them, micro RNAs (miRNAs) and small interfering(More)
DNA methylation is known as an epigenetic modification that affects gene expression in plants. Variation in CpG methylation behavior was studied in two natural horse gram (Macrotyloma uniflorum [Lam.] Verdc.) genotypes, HPKC2 (drought-sensitive) and HPK4 (drought-tolerant). The methylation pattern in both genotypes was studied through methylation-sensitive(More)
Cytokines play an important role in the defense against malaria and some have long been documented to influence the course of malaria infection in rodents and humans. The present study was conducted to determine the mRNA expression pattern of a few prominent cytokines at different time points during the course of infection with a nonlethal and lethal(More)
Cytokines and immune effector cells play an important role in determining the outcome of infection with various intracellular pathogens, including protozoan parasites. However, their role during lethal and nonlethal malaria needs further validation. In the present study, we examined the role of cytokines and various immune effector cells during lethal and(More)
Motor neuron disease (MND) is a fatal neurode-generative disorder caused by progressive and selective de-generation of motor neurons (MNs). Because of the versatile nature, stem cells have the potential to repair or replace the degenerated cells. In this review, we discussed stem cell based therapies including the use of embryonic stem cells (ESCs), neural(More)
