The initial phases of the disease establishment are very crucial for the compatible interactions. Pathogens must overcome the responses generated by the host for the onset of disease invasion. The compatible interaction is inadequately represented in plant-pathogen interaction studies. To gain broader insight into the early responses elicited by chickpea(More)
A study was conducted to assess the effect of multiple stresses (thermal, nutritional, and walking stress) on the adaptive capability of Malpura ewes in terms of changes in physiological mechanisms and blood biochemical changes. The study was conducted for a period of 35 days covering two estrous cycles during summer season (April–May). The ewes were(More)
Curcin, a type I ribosomal inhibiting protein-RIP, encoded by curcin precursor gene, is a phytotoxin present in Jatropha (Jatropha curcas L.). Here, we report designing of RNAi construct for the curcin precursor gene and further its genetic transformation of Jatropha to reduce its transcript expression. Curcin precursor gene was first cloned from Jatropha(More)
The WRKY genes have been identified as important transcriptional modulators predominantly during the environmental stresses, but they also play critical role at various stages of plant life cycle. We report the identification of WRKY domain (WD)-encoding genes from galegoid clade legumes chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) and barrel medic (Medicago truncatula).(More)
The antimicrobial efficacy of seed extracts (methanol, ethanol, propanol, acetone and sterile deionized water) of Camelina sativa cv. Calena (EC643910) against different microbial cultures causing infections/diseases was investigated by agar disc diffusion method. Kanamycin (1000 μg/ml) and clotrimazole (100 μg/ml) were used as standard drugs for(More)
A study was conducted to examine the low temperature (LT) induced osmatic adjustments and antioxidant properties in indoor plants, viz., Philodendron domesticum, Dracaena fragans, Ficus elastica, Chlorophytum comosum and Sansevieria trifasciata for selecting the best candidate plant to be pot-transplanted in closed environments for oxygen enrichment at high(More)
The selective transformation of different starting materials by different metal catalysts under individually optimized reaction conditions to structurally different intermediates and products is a powerful approach to generate diverse molecular scaffolds. In a more unified albeit synthetically challenging strategy, common starting materials would be exposed(More)
A study was conducted to examine the phytochemical and antibacterial potential of non-polar solvent (hexane, petroleum ether, chloroform, and toluene) based Camelina sativa cv. Calena (EC643910) seed extracts for future investigation into the field of pharmacology, phytochemistry, ethnobotany and other biological actions for drug discovery. Among all tested(More)
This manuscript discusses the phytochemical analysis of stinging plants and/or their biological toxins as novel future bio-threat agents that may be used for self-defence purpose. The selected stinging plants namely, Urtica dioica L., Tragia involucrata L., Carduus nutans L. and Mucuna pruriens (L.) DC, have dual role as nutraceutical and(More)
A study was conducted to estimate the effect of UV-C (200–280 nm) radiation stress on growth and physiochemical responses of Camelina sativa L. cv. Calina (EC643910; a potential bio-fuel crop) for its possible mass multiplication at high-altitude under high radiations. The germination percentage in terms of radicle protrusion and opening of cotyledonary(More)
