The role of inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-1α/β (IL-1α/β), IL-6, IL-10, tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), interferons, nitric oxide (NO) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in pathogenesis of rabies is being actively pursued. Presently, levels of certain immune molecules in pathogenesis of rabies in mice have been investigated. CVS(More)
Rabies is endemic and an important zoonosis in India. There are very few reports available on molecular epidemiology of rabies virus of Indian origin. In this study to know the dynamics of rabies virus, a total of 41 rabies positive brain samples from dogs, cats, domestic animals, wildlife, and humans from 11 states were subjected to RT-PCR amplification of(More)
Most commonly occurring predacious fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora showed great variation in size and shape of conidia on some media. The formation of larger conidia was recorded on beef extract and nutrient agar media. The length of conidia in Richard's YPSS, Sabouraud's, PDA and corn meal agar media was of medium size while smaller conidia were produced on(More)
Rabies virus (RABV) stimulates nitric oxide (NO) production, which either triggers T cell differentiation or suppresses T cell function depending on its concentration. Herein, we assessed the potential role of NO in regulation of immune responses during RABV infection in mice model. The experimental animals were divided into four groups and 100LD50 of(More)
The Pasteurella multocida subsp. multocida B:2 serotype causes hemorrhagic septicemia in bubalines with high morbidity and mortality in the Indian subcontinent. We report the draft genome sequence of Pasteurella multocida strain VTCCBAA264 isolated from the small-intestine of a buffalo calf that died of high fever.
This paper presents a congestion management methodology in deregulated power systems by making use of optimal placement of thyristor controlled series compensators (TCSCs) in transmission network. The problem formulation consists of maximization of social welfare function subject to real and reactive power balance, constant power factor of consumers,(More)
— In this paper, we propose a model of distributed power system with power electronic controlled loads. Distribution networks transport the electrical energy from the transmission substations to the various loads. There are so many power electronics controlled loads that are connected in the distribution power system. Due to intensive use of power(More)
Application of fertilizers such as urea, diammonium phosphate (DAP) and muriate of potash in soil adversely affected the spore germination of Arthrobotrys dactyloides. Amendment of soil with urea at the concentrations of 1.0%, 0.5% and 0.1% completely inhibited spore germination and direct trap formation on the conidium, whereas muriate of potash delayed(More)
Haematological and biochemical studies were conducted on 12 clinically healthy tigers of Central India. The range and mean (with one standard deviation), respectively for the parameters examined were: red blood cells, 4.66 to 9.15, 7.9 ± 1.42, 106/μl; haemoglobin, 7.8 to 13.8, 12.8 ± 1.65 g/dl; packed cell volume, 36 to 45, 38 ± 2.54; icterus index, 2 to 5,(More)
