Rice bran oil, non conventional oil was blended with six traditional oils in the ratio of 70:30 and 80:20 for the enhancement of its market acceptability and awareness in consumers regarding its use in cooking. Effect of deep-fat frying on these blends was studied by assessing the changes in percent fat absorption and physicochemical properties during(More)
Studies with Aedes aegypti were undertaken to determine if an alien genotype can be (1) incorporated into a natural population and (2) maintained for several generations on its own without any subsequent introductions. Such information is an essential prerequisite for successful application of any genetic control method. Data from a walk-in, field(More)
Tris(1-aziridinyl)phosphine sulfide was found to be an excellent sterilant for male Culex pipiens fatigans. When male pupae were exposed to a 0.6% solution for 3 hours, the ensuing adults were rendered permanently sterile with no apparent reduction in their vigour or longevity based on laboratory and field cage studies. Females, however, exposed to the same(More)
In insects it is known that the chemosterilant treatment induces dominant lethal mutations which bring about embryonic death. The possibility of delayed expression of the chemosterilant-induced dominant lethals in F(1) progeny of the tropical house mosquito, Culex pipiens fatigans Wiedemann has been investigated. The chemosterilants employed were 8(More)
Many aziridinyl compounds are known to induce high sterility in Culex pipiens fatigans Wiedemann, but as the practical application of these chemosterilants is quite hazardous, compounds such as phosphoramides and s-triazines have been tried against this species. These compounds are relatively less reactive, thermally more stable and less toxic to mammals.(More)
Various alkylating and non-alkylating agents are known to induce sterility in Culex pipiens fatigans, but the duration of the sterilizing effect they produce had not so far been studied for this species. The authors therefore investigated the duration of sterility induced by the alkylating chemosterilants apholate and tepa in C. p. fatigans, second-instar(More)
Studies revealed that garden cress (Lepidium sativum) has been used in India for medicinal purposes since Vedic era. A systematic literature review was conducted to summarize and quantify the past and current evidence for garden cress. Relevant papers up to 2015 in various databases were searched to collect the review on garden cress. Garden cress, a native(More)
