Salt stress is among the major abiotic stresses that adversely affect the global crop production and its adverse impacts are getting more serious in the regions where saline water is used for irrigation. It induces reactive oxygen species, alters the activity of antioxidant system and adversely affects the process of photosynthesis. Various strategies have(More)
The role of 28-homobrassinolide (HBL) in countering nickel-induced oxidative damage through overexpression of antioxidant enzymes and proline in Vigna radiata has been investigated. Two varieties of V. radiata, one sensitive to Ni (PDM-139) and the other tolerant to Ni (T-44), were sown in the soil fed with different levels (0, 50, 100 or 150 mg kg−1) of(More)
β-Carotene has been established as a known free radical scavenger with chain-breaking antioxidant properties. It has been documented for the treatment of epileptic convulsions at a 200 mg/kg body weight dose. The reported pathogenesis for epileptic convulsions is oxidative stress. Hence, experimental epileptic convulsions via oxidative stress was induced in(More)
The light and electron microscopic findings of a surgically excised intracerebral mass is presented. The ultrastructural study led to definitely exclude both meningioma (that was the original diagnosis at surgery) and intracerebral schwannoma, while substantiating the uncommon final diagnosis of fibroma. The true intracerebral fibroma has exceptionally been(More)
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in minute quantity serves as a signalling molecule. However, the role of H2O2 in combination with brassinosteroids (stress regulators) in plants under toxic levels of copper, is poorly understood. With an aim to explore and elaborate their role in plants subjected to abiotic stress, the surface sterilized seeds of mung bean (Vigna(More)
BACKGROUND Phytochemical investigation of hydroalcoholic extract of the root of Inula racemosa Hook. MATERIALS AND METHODS Open silica gel column chromatographic techniques with different solvent systems was used for isolation of aliphatic and eudesmalolide esters from hydroalcoholic extract of the root of Inula racemosa. The structure elucidation of the(More)
A systematic gauge-invariant method, which starts directly from QCD, is used to calculate the rate for an upsilon meson to decay inclusively into a prompt photon. An expansion is made in the quark relative velocity v, which is a small natural parameter for heavy quark systems. Inclusion of these O(v 2) corrections tends to increase the photon rate in the(More)
