Guggulsterone, a hypolipidemic natural agent, is produced in resin canals of the plant Commiphora wightii. In this study, the efficacy of different plant growth regulators was evaluated for optimizing its production. Morphactin was found to be effective in enhancing the accumulation of guggulsterones in callus cultures. Maximum callus growth was recorded on(More)
Cell suspension cultures of Commiphora wightii, grown in modified MS medium containing 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (0.5 mg l−1) and kinetin (0.25 mg l−1), produced ∼5 μg guggulsterone g−1 dry wt. In a 2 l stirred tank bioreactor, the biomass was 5.5 g l−1 and total guggulsterone was 36 μg l−1.
Successful treatment of severe acute malnutrition has been achieved with ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF), but only 15% of children with severe acute malnutrition receive RUTF. The objective of this study was to determine whether new formulations of RUTF produced using locally available ingredients were acceptable to young children in Ethiopia, Ghana,(More)
Cell cultures of Commiphora wightii (Arnott.) Bhandari were grown in shake flasks and a bioreactor and an increase in guggulsterone accumulation up to 18 μg l−1 was recorded in cells grown in the production medium containing a combination of sucrose:glucose (4% total), precursors (phenylalanine, pyruvic acid, xylose, and sodium acetate), morphactin, and(More)
As Indian economy gets integrated to the global economy and strives to improve in terms of human development indicators, a special role exists for information and communication technologies (ICT) in this process. The strategic metamorphoses and the resultant expansion of ICT linked telecommunication services in India have favorably influenced the effort to(More)
