AIMS Cells possess multiple methods for counteracting the deleterious consequences of stress induced by physical and chemical stimuli. Heat stress causes variations in the cellular environment, leading to cellular morbidity or mortality. Natural compounds that contain phenolic antioxidants, offer various therapeutic and biological activities. Vitexin, a(More)
eIF5 is the GTPase activating protein (GAP) for the eIF2 · GTP · Met-tRNAi (Met) ternary complex with a critical role in initiation codon selection. Previous work suggested that the eIF5 mutation G31R/SUI5 elevates initiation at UUG codons by increasing GAP function. Subsequent work implicated eIF5 in rearrangement of the preinitiation complex (PIC) from an(More)
Although quercetin is very well known for its anticancer activity, however it shows some drawbacks. Herein, we have evaluated the apoptotic effect TEF (5, 3'-dihydroxy-3, 7, 4'-triethoxyflavone), a newly synthesized quercetin derivative on HCT-116 colon cancer cells. After 24h of treatment, the proliferation of colon cancer cells was inhibited by TEF. TEF(More)
Plant-derived compounds are an important source of clinically useful anti-cancer agents. Chrysin, a biologically active flavone found in many plants, has limited usage for cancer chemotherapeutics due to its poor oral bioavailability. 5-Hydroxy-7-methoxyflavone (HMF), an active natural chrysin derivative found in various plant sources, is known to modulate(More)
Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) is the most toxic aflatoxin species and has been shown to be associated with specific as well as non-specific immune responses. In the present study, using murine macrophage Raw 264.7 cells as a model, we report that short exposure (6h) to AFB1 caused an increase in the cellular calcium pool in mitochondria, which in turn elevated(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the individual and synergistic anti-listerial effect of nisin and leaf essential oil of Metasequoia glyptostroboides (M. glyptostroboides) against one of the leading foodborne pathogens Listeria monocytogenes (L. monocytogenes) ATCC 19116 in milk samples. METHODS The whole (8%), low (1%) and skim (no fat content) milk samples were(More)
There are currently a large variety of wireless access networks, including the emerging vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). A large variety of applications utilizing these networks will demand features such as realtime, high-availability, and even instantaneous highbandwidth in some cases. Therefore, it is imperative for network service providers to make(More)
The paper deals with the design of a charge pump circuit after analyzing the current mismatch problem. Charge sharing problem is eliminated by using transistors. For enhancing the matching characteristics a cascode type current mirror circuit is used. This design provides a technique by which the value of I<sub>up</sub> and I<sub>dn</sub> is matched in way(More)
In the study nasal and throat swabs were collected from 78 apparently healthy and 69 cases of kennel cough from dogs of different age, sex, breed and places and analysed for presence of Bordetella bronchiseptica through bacterial isolation and multiplex PCR (mPCR). The pathogen could be isolated from an apparently healthy Labrador bitch while with mPCR, 7(More)
Bordetella bronchiseptica infection causing atrophic rhinitis in pigs is reported from almost all countries. In the present study, occurrence of Bordetella infection in apparently healthy pigs was determined in 392 pigs sampled to collect 358 serum samples and 316 nasal swabs from Northern India by conventional bacterioscopy, detection of antigen with(More)
