Fluorosis is caused by excess of fluoride intake over a long period of time. Aberrant change in the Runt-related transcription factor 2 (RUNX2) mediated signaling cascade is one of the decisive steps during the pathogenesis of fluorosis. Up to date, role of fluoride on the epigenetic alterations is not studied. In the present study, global expression(More)
Biological CO(2) sequestration using algal reactors is one of the most promising and environmentally benign technologies to sequester CO(2). This research study was taken up to alleviate certain limitations associated with the technology such as low CO(2) sequestration efficiency and low biomass yields. The study demonstrates an increase in CO(2)(More)
Recent developments in storage technologies have given computer system designers a wide range to consider in building large on-line systems. It is important that the requirements of each component of a proposed system be carefully recognized before choosing a particular technology for its implementation. The design of a database computer which takes(More)
The design of a microprogrammable microprocessor-based keyword transformation unit for a database computer(DBC) is described. The DBC, a specialized back-end computer capable of managing 10<supscrpt>9</supscrpt> - 10<supscrpt>10</supscrpt> bytes of data, consists of two loops of memories and processors, the structure loop and the data loop, connected(More)
Oxidative stress is reported to negatively affect osteoblast cells. Present study reports oxidative and inflammatory signatures in fluoride-exposed human osteosarcoma (HOS) cells, and their possible association with the genes involved in osteoblastic differentiation and bone development pathways. HOS cells were challenged with sublethal concentration (8(More)
The study was conducted to isolate endosulfan biotransforming or biodegrading microbes based on chemotaxis. Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain KKc3, Ochrobactrum sp. strain KKc4, Achromobacter xylosoxidans strain KKc6 and Bacillus megaterium KKc7 were isolated based on their migration towards endosulfan in a soil column. Out of the four bacteria, B. megaterium(More)
The motivation for seeking hardware solutions to database management functions traditionally carried out by software has been apparent to data-base designers for sometime now. Firstly, database management software has grown in complexity and size over the years. This growth is prompted by the increase in user requirements, by the formulation of(More)
Recent evidence shows that water distribution system (WDS) is a major risk factor in piped water supply system and the degree of contamination of water in WDS is usually influenced by seasonal variation. Risk assessment studies eliminate the effect of seasonality whenever annualized estimate of concentration of contaminants in water is used to determine the(More)
