Operculina turpethum (syn. Ipomoea turpethum) a plant in the morning glory family is an endangered medicinal plant of Bangladesh and its neighboring countries. An efficient micropropagation protocol was established for this plant through nodal segment culture as well as antimicrobial activity of the leaves was also evaluated. For micropropagation, nodal(More)
Continued progress in both civil and military avionics applications is overstressing the capabilities of existing radio-frequency (RF) communication networks based on coaxial cables on board modern aircrafts. Future avionics systems will require high-bandwidth on-board communication links that are lightweight, immune to electromagnetic interference, and(More)
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has defined the Guaranteed Service (GS) with firm delay and bandwidth guarantees in the Integrated Services model for supporting realtime services. Before setting up a GS flow, traffic parameters of the source have to be specified in terms of a number of token bucket traffic descriptors. The source must conform to(More)
Cadmium (Cd) is an important phytotoxic element causing health hazards. This work investigates whether and how silicon (Si) influences the alleviation of Cd toxicity in field peas at biochemical and molecular level. The addition of Si in Cd-stressed plants noticeably increased growth and development as well as total protein and membrane stability of(More)
The role of the Advanced Air Transportation Technologies program undertaken at the NASA Glenn Research Centers has been focused mainly on the improvement of air transportation safety, with particular emphasis on air transportation communication systems in on-board aircraft. The conventional solutions for digital optical communications systems specifically(More)

Viral diseases affecting sweetpotato are the most devastating and cause up to 98 % yield loss. In this paper, we report, meristem culture, graft transmission and virus indexing for management of viral pathogens in seven elite sweetpotato cultivars. Plantlets were developed in vitro from the apical meristematic dome with one to two leaf primordia. Mericlones(More)
OBJECTIVE Methanol extract of bran and unpolished grain of two traditional aromatic rice genotypes viz. Kalijira and Chinigura were assayed for their activity on the growth and initiation of crown-gall tumors on potato disks. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three Agrobacterium tumefaciens (A. tumefaciens) strain AtSl0105, AtTa0112, and AtAc0114 were used as the(More)
