The present investigation was carried out to elucidate a possible molecular mechanism related to the protective effect of quercetin administration against aluminium-induced oxidative stress on various mitochondrial respiratory complex subunits with special emphasis on the role of PGC-1α and its downstream targets, i.e. NRF-1, NRF-2 and Tfam in mitochondrial(More)
Dietary and lifestyle factors have been shown to have a profound effect on paraoxonase-1 (PON1) activity. Cigarette smoke has been shown to inhibit its mass and activity where as resveratrol has been shown to enhance it. We exposed hepatoma derived cell line (HepG2) to resveratrol and nicotine in varying doses and measured PON1 enzymatic activity and PON1(More)
An integrated management strategy involving fungal (Trichoderma harzianum) and bacterial (Pseudomonas fluorescens and Bacillus species) antagonists, rhizobacterium and a fungicide was developed for the management of chickpea wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceris (Foc). PGPR strain P. fluorescens 80 (Pf 80) and Bacillus species (Bskm 5) caused the(More)
Genetic diversity of 70 isolates of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceris originated from various states of India representing eight races causing wilt in chickpea (Cicer arietinum) was analyzed using translation elongation factor-1α (TEF-1α), β-tubulin, and internal transcribed spacer (ITS) gene regions. TEF-1α, β-tubulin, and ITS gene-specific markers(More)
Fusarium wilt (Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceris) causes significant yield losses in chickpea worldwide. Faster, reliable and more specific molecular detection techniques were developed for the detection of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceris (Foc). The sequences obtained from multiple alignments of target genes, namely, translation elongation factor-1α(More)
