OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the antidiabetic activity of Crateva nurvala stem bark (family: Capparidaceae) extracts in alloxan-induced diabetic albino rats. A comparison was made between the action of different extracts of C. nurvala and a known antidiabetic drug glibenclamide (600 μg/kg b. wt.). An oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT)… (More)
Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is an important oilseed crop grown in semi-arid tropics where it experiences moisture stress at different stages of growth resulting in reduced growth and productivity. In this study, we report that the stress tolerance of groundnut can be improved by overexpression of stress-specific transcription factor through transgenic… (More)
The present study explores the hepatoprotective activity of various extracts of Ferula asafoetida, Momordica charantia Linn and Nardostachys jatamansi against experimental hepatotoxicity. Polyherbal suspensions were formulated using extracts showing significant activity and evaluated for both physicochemical and hepatoprotective activity in comparison with… (More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the effect of the aqueous extract of Phyllanthus niruri (Aq.E.PN) against doxorubicin (Dox)-induced myocardial toxicity in rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cardiotoxicity was produced by Dox administration (15 mg/kg for 2 weeks). Aq.E PN (200 mg/kg, orally) was administered as pretreatment for 2 weeks alternated with Dox for the next… (More)
—A new public-domain simulator for mixed-signal circuits is described. The new simulator is very versatile, allowing the user to define new elements easily. The procedure adopted for simulation of circuits with both digital and analog elements is briefly discussed. Several simulation examples are presented to demonstrate the applications of the simulator.… (More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study has been to investigate the possible antihyperlipidemic effect of Salacia chinensis root extract in triton (400mg/kg b.w.)-induced and atherogenic diet-induced hyperlipidemic rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Petroleum ether (60-80°C), chloroform, ethanol and aqueous extracts of Salacia chinensis roots were evaluated for… (More)
An expeditious, one-pot method for the synthesis of 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2(1H)-ones using a mixture of phosphorus pentoxide-methanesulfonic acid (Eaton's reagent) at room temperature under solvent-free conditions is described. The salient features of this method include short reaction time, green aspects, high yields, and simple procedure.
Moving vehicle detection is an essential process for Intelligent Transportation system. During the last decade, a large amount of work has been trying to produced output for this challenge; however, performances of most of them still fall far behind human perception. In this paper the object detection problem is studied, analyzing and reviewing the most… (More)
