The effect of thidiazuron (TDZ) was investigated on in vitro shoot proliferation from nodal explants of Rauvolfia tetraphylla. Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium containing TDZ (0.5–10μM) was effective in inducing shoot buds and maintaining high rates of shoot multiplication on hormone free medium. The highest shoot regeneration frequency (90%) and mean number(More)
SCOPE Anticancer polyphenolic nutraceuticals from fruits, vegetables, and spices are generally recognized as antioxidants, but can be prooxidants in the presence of copper ions. We earlier proposed a mechanism for such activity of polyphenols and now we provide data in multiple cancer cell lines in support of our hypothesis. METHODS AND RESULTS Through(More)
Sleep and wakefulness are instinctive behaviours that are present across the animal species. Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is a unique biological phenomenon expressed during sleep. It evolved about 300 million years ago and is noticed in the more evolved animal species. Although it has been objectively identified in its present characteristic form about(More)
It has been shown that rapid eye movement (REM) sleep deprivation increases Na-K ATPase activity. Based on kinetic study, it was proposed that increased activity was due to enhanced turnover of enzyme molecules. To test this, anti-alpha1 Na-K ATPase monoclonal antibody (mAb 9A7) was used to label Na-K ATPase molecules. These labeled enzymes were quantified(More)
Isolated studies showed that norepinephrinergic REM-OFF neurons are active throughout except during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep when they are inhibited possibly by GABA. Similarly, independent studies have also reported that during REM sleep deprivation those REM-OFF neurons continue firing, that there is increased norepinephrine (NE) in the brain and(More)
The aim of this paper is to present an evaluation method that can aid decision makers in a local civic body to prioritize and select appropriate municipal solid waste disposal methods. We introduce a hierarchical network (hiernet) decision structure and apply the analytic network process (ANP) super-matrix approach to measure the relative desirability of(More)
Due to numerous potential applications of semiconductor transition metal-doped nanomaterials and the great advantages of hydrothermal synthesis in both cost and environmental impact, a significant effort has been employed for growth of copper oxide codoped zinc oxide (CuO codoped ZnO) nanostructures via a hydrothermal route at room conditions. The(More)
This paperaddresses the multi-objective stochastic optimization problem that arises in many real-world applications, especially in supply chain management and optimization.To this end, a simulated annealing algorithm is presented and used for solving this problem. The algorithm uses the hill-climbing criterionin order to escape from local minimality trap.(More)

A facile aqueous solution process was used to synthesize well-crystalline ZnO nanocones at 60 degrees C by using zinc nitrate hexahydrate and sodium hydroxide. The morphological, structural and optical properties of the synthesized ZnO nanocones were investigated by using field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) attached with energy dispersive(More)
