Protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) is a member of the non-transmembrane phosphotyrosine phosphatase family. Recently, PTP1B has been proposed to be a novel target of anti-cancer and anti-diabetic drugs. However, the role of PTP1B in the central nervous system is not clearly understood. Therefore, in this study, we sought to define PTP1B’s role in brain(More)
The mangrove fruit Sonneratia apetala Buch.-Ham. is extensively consumed by the people of coastal Bangladesh especially adjacent to the Sundarbans’ forest. Seeds consist of very high content of polyphenols (300 ± 8.2 mg GAE/g extract), flavonoids (30.6 ± 0.7 CE/g extract), anthocyanins (2.3 ± 0.03 μmol/g extract) and vitamin C (4.0 ± 0.08 mg/g extract). The(More)
Vinpocetine, a semisynthetic derivative alkaloid of Vincamine, an extract from the periwinkle (plant) Vinca minor is the first full-fledged nootropic (a supplement positively affecting the mind). Vinpocetine is safe and non-toxic with an amazing array of functional and structural benefits for improved health. Vinpocetine appears to improve a person's(More)
Various literatures recorded approximately 60 medicinal plants in Bangladesh that have antidiabetic properties. Of these medicinal plants, only 14–16 are found in traditional herbal markets and they are being randomly used to treat diabetes. Since diabetes mellitus increases reactive free radicals along with various complications in the body, antidiabetic(More)
The dorsal root ganglion (DRG) is a highly vulnerable site in diabetic neuropathy. Under diabetic conditions, the DRG is subjected to tissue ischemia or lower ambient oxygen tension that leads to aberrant metabolic functions. Metabolic dysfunctions have been documented to play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of diverse pain hypersensitivities. However,(More)
Diabetic neuropathy subsequent to chronic high blood glucose-induced nerve damage is one of the most frustrating and debilitating complications of diabetes, which affects the quality of life in patients with diabetes. Approximately 60-70% of patients with diabetes suffer from a distal symmetrical form of mild to severe neuropathy that progresses in a(More)
Pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) kinases (PDKs) 1-4, expressed in peripheral and central tissues, regulate the activity of the PDH complex (PDC). The PDC is an important mitochondrial gatekeeping enzyme that controls cellular metabolism. The role of PDKs in diverse neurological disorders, including neurometabolic aberrations and neurodegeneration, has been(More)
Field trials were conducted on tomato for yield and quality of fruits using different types of organic and inorganic fertilizers at the horticulture farm of Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh. Fertilizer treatments were tested on two varieties of tomato ca. Roma VF and BARI 15. The fertilization treatments were T1, vermicompost (12 t/ha);(More)
Floral organ identity and specific number directly affect anthesis habits, fertilization and grain yield. Here, we identified a deformed interior floral organ 1 (difo1) mutant from selfing progenies of indica cv. Zhonghui8015 (Zh8015) after 60Co γ-ray treatment. Compared with the Zh8015 spikelet, the interior floral organs of the difo1 mutant present(More)
