Ascorbate peroxidase, a haem protein (EC, efficiently scavenges hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) in cytosol and chloroplasts of plants. In this study, a full-length coding sequence of thylakoid-bound ascorbate peroxidase cDNA (TatAPX) was cloned from a drought tolerant wheat cultivar C306. Homology modeling of the TatAPX protein was performed by(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective study. PURPOSE The aim of the study was to study the impact and outcome of conservative management and surgical intervention in cases of postoperative discitis. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Postoperative discitis is a rare but often misdiagnosed cause of failed back syndrome. There is paucity of literature regarding management(More)
In this paper, a new meta-heuristic algorithm is proposed for solving combinatorial optimization problems. The proposed algorithm follows the adaptive swarm intelligence technique proposed earlier, but uses the novel concept of multiple swarms. Unlike the existing multi swarm techniques, the swarms in the proposed algorithm are dynamic and operate with a(More)
