OsPPR1, a pentatricopeptide repeat protein of rice is essential for the chloroplast biogenesis
The results suggest that the OsPPR1 is a nuclear gene of rice, encoding the PPR protein that might play a role in the chloroplast biogenesis. Expand
Screening and optimization of protease production from a halotolerant Bacillus licheniformis isolated from saltern sediments
Studies on the effect of different carbon and nitrogen sources revealed that xylose and urea enhances the enzyme production, and with selected C–N sources along with 1 M NaCl the maximum protease production was obtained. Expand
The effect of salinity on growth, hormones and mineral elements in leaf and fruit of tomato cultivar PKM1.
Results showed that leaf area and dry matter content of tomato fruits decreased with application of elevated salt stress, however endogenous content of IAA, ABA and proline was found to be increasing with increase in salt treatment, suggesting that leaves are more sensitive than fruits. Expand

The methanolic extract of A. commutatus showed significant hepatoprotective and antioxidant activity which might be attributed due to the polyphenolic compounds present in the extract. Expand
Oral administration of lyophilized Dunaliella salina, a carotenoid-rich marine alga, reduces tumor progression in mammary cancer induced rats.
Dunaliella salina lyophilized powder was found to show a chemopreventive effect against breast cancer induced in rats through the suppression of cell proliferation and the induction of apoptosis. Expand
Prognostic Value of miRNAs in Head and Neck Cancers: A Comprehensive Systematic and Meta-Analysis
Results indicate that miRNAs have potential clinical value as prognostic biomarkers in HNC, with miR-21, 125b, 34c-5p and 18a, in particular, showing great potential as progostic molecular markers. Expand
Bicarbonate supplementation enhances growth and biochemical composition of Dunaliella salina V-101 by reducing oxidative stress induced during macronutrient deficit conditions
Under nutrient deficit conditions, addition of sodium bicarbonate significantly increased the biomass, carotenoids including β-carotene and lutein, lipid, and fatty acid content with concurrent enhancement of the activities of nutrient assimilatory and carbonic anhydrase enzymes. Expand
Prognostic significance of blood inflammatory biomarkers NLR, PLR, and LMR in cancer—A protocol for systematic review and meta-analysis
This meta-analysis protocol examines the comparative utility of neutrophil-lymphocyte-ratio, platelet-ly mphocyte- ratio, and monocyte-lyymphocyte-Ratio as a simple, inexpensive, and effective method for cancer prognosis, in multiple cancers. Expand
Effect of Dissolved Inorganic Carbon on β-Carotene and Fatty Acid Production in Dunaliella sp
The results indicate that the optimum concentration of bicarbonate was required to stimulate a positive effect on β-carotene production as well as the lipid profile in Dunaliella sp. Expand
Preliminary screening of antimicrobial properties of few medicinal plants.
The methanol extracts of Alpinia galanga, Artabotrys uncinatus, Costus igneus and Yellow Hibiscus exhibited higher antibacterial activity when compared to the other plant extracts, which indicated the presence of alkaloids, phenolic compounds and flavanoids. Expand
