Fuzzless-lintless cotton mutants are considered to be the ideal material to understand the molecular mechanisms involved in fibre cell development. Although there are few reports on transcriptome and proteome analyses in cotton at fibre initiation and elongation stages, there is no comprehensive comparative transcriptome analysis of fibre-bearing and(More)
High mobility group box chromosomal protein 1 (HMGB1), known as an abundant, non-histone architectural chromosomal protein, is highly conserved across different species. Homologues of HMGB1 were identified and cloned from malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum. Sequence analyses showed that the P. falciparum HMGB1 (PfHMGB1) exhibits 45, 23 and 18%, while(More)
The gross morphological features of the eggs and eggshells (chorions) of two Lepidoptera species, Pericallia ricini and Ariadne merione were revealed for the first time by scanning and transmission electron microscopy. These two insect pests are extremely serious threats for many crops, mainly in India, but also in several other regions of the world.(More)
Inhibition of vascular endothelial growth factor increases response rates to chemotherapy and progression-free survival in glioblastoma. However, resistance invariably occurs, prompting the urgent need for identification of synergizing agents. One possible strategy is to understand tumor adaptation to microenvironmental changes induced by antiangiogenic(More)
PURPOSE To determine the anatomic characteristics and pharmacokinetic properties of intravitreally-placed aflibercept in a rabbit model. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four Dutch-belted rabbits underwent intravitreal injection with I-124-aflibercept. Serial imaging with PET/CT imaging was performed on days 0, 2, 5, 7, 14, 21, 28 and 35. Measured radioactivity(More)
Feature Selection plays an important role in Intrusion Detection, where a large number of features extracted from whole data needs to be analyzed. Feature relevance is the basic measurement in feature selection techniques. In this paper, different feature selection techniques are analyzed. By using pre-processed data set, various feature selection(More)
Tuberculosis (TB) continues to be a major health problem due to lack of accurate, rapid, and cost-effective diagnostic tests. Serodiagnostic tests incorporating highly specific region of difference (RD) antigens (early secretory antigenic target 6 [ESAT-6], culture filtrate protein 10 [CFP-10], culture filtrate protein 21 [CFP-21], and mycobacterial protein(More)
Cotton is an important source of natural fibre used in the textile industry and the productivity of the crop is adversely affected by drought stress. High throughput transcriptomic analyses were used to identify genes involved in fibre development. However, not much information is available on cotton genome response in developing fibres under drought(More)
Significant progress has been made in unraveling the molecular biology of rice in the past two decades. Today, rice stands as a forerunner amongst the cereals in terms of details known on its genetics. Evidence show that salt tolerance in plants is a quantitative trait. Several traditional cultivars, landraces, and wild types of rice like Pokkali, CSR(More)
