Present study showed the toxicity caused by Arsenite (As(III)) and its detoxification responses in two varieties (Varuna and Pusa Bold) of Brassica juncea. Comparisons were made in leaves and roots of both the varieties, which showed that the accumulation pattern in both the varieties were dose and duration dependent, being more in roots for two days and in(More)
SIFT describes local features in image used for object recognition in a vast array of application, such as augmented reality, panorama stitching. These applications are becoming very popular on Smartphones but also require considerable amount of computing power. GPUs offer a significant amount of untapped computing power that can help increase performance(More)
Lipid peroxidation may be initiated either by lipoxygenases or by reactive oxygen species (ROS). Enzymatic oxidation of alpha-linolenate can result in the biosynthesis of cyclic oxylipins of the jasmonate type while free-radical-catalyzed oxidation of alpha-linolenate may yield several classes of cyclic oxylipins termed phytoprostanes in vivo. Previously,(More)
Selenium (Se) is an essential micronutrient for humans and animals, but lead to toxicity when taken in excessive amounts. Plants are the main source of dietary Se, but essentiality of Se for plants is still controversial. However, Se at low doses protects the plants from variety of abiotic stresses such as cold, drought, desiccation, and metal stress. In(More)
The toxic metalloid arsenite has become a potential threat to rice growing regions leading to serious contamination in food chain. In the present study effect of different physiological concentration of arsenite that is toxic and triggers the molecular events were evaluated in rice seedlings. Along with severe effect on the growth of rice seedling,(More)
Multiple biomarker systems have been frequently used to measure the genotoxic effects of environmental pollutants (including heavy metals) on living organisms. In this study, we used leaves of hydroponically grown 14 days old seedlings of rice (Oryza sativa) varieties (PB1 and IR64) treated with 50, 150 and 300 μM arsenite (As(III)) for 24 and 96 h(More)
Many emerging mobile wireless applications use symmetric keys for secure multicast communication. This key has to be changed every time a user decides to leave or join the network. We introduce a novel hierarchical security framework for mobile Ad Hoc Multicast networks in which data encryption is done using a symmetric key and key establishment using(More)
Arsenic (As) is known to disrupt the biological function in plants by inhibiting their growth and developmental process, while selenium (Se) is an essential micronutrient within the appropriate amount. Phytohormone auxin on the other hand is an established growth regulator and plays a significant role in stress management. Present study is designed to see(More)
Arsenic (As) contamination in the environment has attracted considerable attention worldwide. The objective of the present study was to see the comparative effect of As species As(III) and As(V) on accumulation, biochemical responses, and gene expression analysis in Brassica juncea var. Pusa Jaganath (PJn). Hydroponically grown 14-day-old seedlings of B.(More)
The present work reveals the response of different doses of selenium (Se) and alleviating effect of salicylic acid (SA) on Se-stressed Brassica juncea seedlings. Selenium, a micronutrient, is essential for both humans and animals but is toxic at higher doses. Its beneficial role for the survival of plants, however, is still debatable. On the other hand, SA,(More)
