Four different bacterial strains were isolated from pulp and paper mill sludge in which one alkalotolerant isolate (LP1) having higher capability to remove color and lignin, was identified as Bacillus sp. by 16S RNA sequencing. Optimization of process parameters for decolorization was initially performed to select growth factors which were further(More)
L-deprenyl is considered to protect against age-related cognitive deficits by improving long-term learning/memory in the aged brain. The CA1 and CA3 hippocampal areas are the sites at which initial learning and memory processes occur. Chronic deprenyl treatment significantly augmented the basal electrical firing rate (multiple-unit action potentials), and(More)
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a neuroactive androgen steroid, has antiepileptic action in iron-induced experimental epilepsy (which models post-traumatic clinical epilepsy). In iron-induced epilepsy increased extracellular glutamate resulting from its reduced glial uptake due to the down-regulation (decreased expression) of transporters (glial and or(More)
The extracts from the peels of Citrus limetta were prepared using hexane and petroleum ether as the solvents. The larvicidal potential of each extract was assessed against dengue fever vector, Aedes aegypti, and malarial vector, Anopheles stephensi, by evaluating the toxicity effects on early fourth instars. Both the extracts were found effective against(More)
The adverse effects of chemical insecticides-based intervention measures for the control of mosquito vectors have received wide public apprehension because of several problems like insecticide resistance, resurgence of pest species, environmental pollution, toxic hazards to humans, and non-target organisms. These problems have necessitated the need to(More)
Aedes aegypti L. is one of the primary disease vectors spreading various dreadful diseases throughout the world, specifically over tropics and subtropics. Keeping in view the adverse effects of chemical insecticides-based intervention measures, the eco-friendly and bio-degradable essential oil extracted from the seeds of celery, Apium graveolens were(More)
Influence of exogenously administered dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) on the activity of Na+ K+ ATPase was investigated in synaptosomal fraction from cerebral cortex, cerebellum, hippocampus and medulla regions of brain of 12 and 22 months old rats. DHEA was administered daily at the dose of 30 mg/kg/body wt, intraperitonially (ip) in both the age groups of(More)
In Prokaryotes, free energy based calculations of the binding interaction between their 16S rRNA tail end and their underlying mRNA has been used to analyze the translation process. There have been examinations of the free-energy interaction between the 16S rRNA and mRNA with focus on the leader region. The focus on the leader region has revealed an(More)
This paper deals with the preparation of graphene oxide-ferrofluid-cement nanocomposites to evaluate the electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding effectiveness (SE) in the 8.2-12.4 GHz frequency range. It has been observed that incorporation of graphene oxide (30 wt%) along with an appropriate amount of ferrofluid in the cement matrix leads to a(More)
The ligand, N'-(phenyl-pyridin-2-yl-methylene)-thiophene-2-carboxylic acid hydrazide (Hpmtc) derived from thiophene-2-carboxylic acid hydrazide and 2-benzoyl pyridine, and its metal complexes with Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) have been synthesized. These compounds are characterized by elemental analyses, magnetic susceptibility measurements, IR, NMR(More)
