Microsatellite markers containing simple sequence repeats (SSRs) are a valuable tool for genetic analysis. Date palm is a dioecious and slow flowering and is very difficult to identify the gender of the trees until it reaches the reproductive age (5-10 years). A total of 12 microsatellite primers were used with 30 date palm samples, 14 parents (8 male + 6(More)
The crude methanolic extract and various fractions of leaves of Stevia rebaudianawere investigated for antibacterial, phytotoxic and haemagglutinationactivities. The biological investigation revealed that crude extract showed good activity against E. coli (69%), moderate activity against B. subtilus (51.8%) and S. aureus (50%). No considerable phytotoxic(More)

A 9 year old male presented with keratotic plaques over the skin of his palms and soles extending onto the dorsal surface and swollen gums since the age of 4 with subsequent loss of most of his permanent dentition. These findings are consistent with Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome.
Mid-gut volvulus in the absence of malrotation of the gut is rare in neonates and rarer in term babies and can be fatal if intervention is delayed. Herein we report a case of a neonate who had billous vomiting, abdominal distension and moderate dehydration. His abdominal radiograph showed gaseous distension of the stomach, ground glass pattern and(More)
Numerous strategies for the detoxification or inactivation of aflatoxins in food and feed-stuffs have been used. The aim of this study was to evaluate effect of ultra-violet irradiation on detoxification of aflatoxin total including aflatoxin B1 (AFB1), aflatoxin B2 (AFB2), aflatoxin G1 (AFG1), aflatoxin G2 (AFG2) and aflatoxin total (AFT) content in(More)
Breeding of date palm is complicated because of its long life cycle and heterozygous nature. Sexual propagation of date palm does not produce true-to-type plants. Sex of date palms cannot be identified until the first flowering stage. Molecular markers such as random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD), sequence-characterized amplified regions (SCAR), and(More)
Article history: Received: 16 Mar 2013 Accepted: 24 Apr 2013 Available online: 15 May 2013 ZJRMS 2014 Dec; 16(12): 15-18 Background: Flavonoids play significant role in the treatment of many diseases. Green tea (Camellia Sinensis L.) is a common beverage all over the world with antioxidant and detoxification effects related to the presence of flavonoids and(More)
Pollen storage and viability are very important for pollination, breeding, biodiversity, biotechnology, conservation, and other biological and non-biological studies of the date palm. Optimizing procedures and duration of storage are important for effective and long-term date palm pollen storage and viability. Here we describe pollen storage methods, such(More)
