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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
The present work was conducted to evaluate the oxygen free radical system in 29 patients and comparing them with nine matched healthy controls of acute and chronic myocardial ischemic syndromes. The parameters assessed for oxidative stress were superoxide anion and malonyldialdehyde, and for the antioxidant defence system were superoxide dismutase, catalase(More)
Administration of L-arginine has been shown to control ischemic injury by producing nitric oxide which dilates the vessels and thus maintains proper blood flow to the myocardium. In the present study attempt has been made to determine whether oral administration of L-arginine has any effect on oxidant/ antioxidant homeostasis in ischemic myocardial patients(More)
A cytomorphologic diagnosis of tuberculous lymphadenitis by examination of needle aspirates was made in 560 of 1,471 cases of lymphadenopathy studied over two years. Cytologic features were categorized into four groups: epithelioid clusters with or without Langhans's giant cells without necrosis (32.14%), epithelioid clusters with or without Langhans's(More)
