Considering importance of a microbial strain capable of increased cellulases production and insensitive to catabolite repression for industrial use, we have developed a mutant strain of Trichoderma citrinoviride by multiple exposures to EMS and ethidium bromide. The mutant produced 0.63, 3.12, 8.22 and 1.94 IU ml(-1) FPase, endoglucanase, beta-glucosidase(More)
CONTEXT In eyes enucleated for retinoblastoma, presence of histopathologic high-risk factors is associated with a higher risk of local recurrence and systemic metastasis. OBJECTIVE To evaluate histopathologic features in children with retinoblastoma in our population and establish relationship between age, tumor differentiation, and high-risk features. (More)
Endophytes are beneficial microbes that reside intercellularly inside the plants. Interaction of endophytes with the host plants and their function within their host are important to address ecological relevance of endophyte. Four endophytic bacteria OS-9, OS-10, OS-11, and OS-12 were isolated from healthy leaves of Ocimum sanctum. These isolated microbes(More)
β-Glucosidases are of pivotal importance in bioconversion of carbonic biomass into fermentable and other useful metabolites, food industry, biotransformation, glyco-trimming of metabolome, etc. Trichoderma citrinoviride when grown on delignified Lantana camara produced a β-glucosidase and secreted it out in the medium. The extracellularly secreted(More)
A total of 44 cases comprising hypertensive (31) and normotensive group (13) were studied. Serum total calcium concentrations remained unaltered in hypertensives. Platelet cytosolic calcium in hypertensive group was significantly higher as compared to the normotensive controls. Platelet cytosolic calcium correlated with systolic and diastolic blood pressure(More)
We present a case of a 32-year-old hypertensive and obese male who had bilateral obstructive uropathy, and who was diagnosed as having pelvic lipomatosis on the basis of clinicoradiological findings. Cystoscopy and biopsy revealed cystitis cystica. He was successfully managed with bilateral extravesical modified Lich-Gregoir ureteric reimplantation by(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) is an intra-and extracellular messenger that mediates diverse signaling pathways in target cells and is known to play an important role in many physiological processes including neuronal signaling, immune response, inflammatory response, modulation of ion channels, phagocytic defense mechanism, penile erection, and cardiovascular(More)
In ischaemic heart conditions we report a remarkable increase in platelet xanthine oxidase activity and rise in the levels of malondialdehyde (MDA) with concomitant decrease in the activities of free radical scavenging enzymes - superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase. The increased levels of free radical generating(More)
In a study spanning over two years, 1,261 cases with clinically significant lymphadenopathies were subjected to fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) to evaluate the reliability and limitations of the procedure. In the first phase of the study, consisting of 100 cases, the cytologic diagnosis was compared with histopathology, and the results were analyzed(More)
