The nutritional value of 10 edible mushroom species were analyzed, which forms a part of the food culture of the Kaani tribal community settled in the forests of Kanyakumari district in Tamil Nadu. Young and matured carpophores of 10 common wild edible mushrooms were collected from different locations in the Western Ghats of Kanyakumari district. These(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the effect of Cyclosporin A (CsA) and angiotensin II (Ang II) on cytosolic calcium levels in cultured human gingival fibroblasts (HGFs). MATERIALS AND METHODS Healthy gingival samples from six volunteers were obtained, and primary HGFs were cultured. Cell viability and proliferation assay were performed to identify the ideal(More)
In this work, silver nanoparticles have been synthesized by wet chemical technique, green synthesis and microbial methods. Silver nitrate (10(-3)M) was used with aqueous extract to produce silver nanoparticles. From the results it was observed that the yield of nanoparticles was high in green synthesis. The size of the silver nanoparticles was determined(More)
AIM The focal theme of present investigation includes isolation of prodigiosin producing fish gut bacteria, enhancing its production using tannery solid waste fleshing, and evaluation of its pharmacological effect. METHODS Optimization of fermentation conditions to yield maximum prodigiosin, and instrumental analysis using FTIR, NMR, ESI-MS, TGA, and DSC.(More)
Rapid synthesis of mono-dispersed gold nanoparticles through economically feasible green chemistry approach is highly desirable. In this study, we have developed a method to synthesize mono-dispersed gold nanoparticles (PAuNPs) by mixing gold solution with fruit peel extract of Punica granutum without using any surfactant or external energy. In this method,(More)
Excoecaria agallocha Linn. the blinding mangrove tree of historical significance, is well known for its curative properties. In this investigation, crude hexane extract from the dried roots of E. agallocha inhibited 50% of the growth of third instar larvae of Culex quinquefasciatus Say. within 24 h (LC(50): 315 ppm). SiO(2) (60-120) column chromatography(More)
Two copper(II) complexes with terpyridyl conjugates, [Cu(meotpy)(dmp)](NO(3))(2) (1) and [Cu(bitpy)(dmp)](NO(3))(2) (2) where meotpy, bitpy and dmp stand for methoxybenzyl terpyridine, benzimidazolyl terpyridine and dimethyl phenanthroline respectively have been synthesized and characterized. Complex 1 has also been characterized crystallographically. Both(More)
A rapid and efficient one pot solvent/scavenger-free protocol for the synthesis of 2-iminothiazolidin-4-ones has been developed. Interestingly, the regio/stereoselective synthesis affords the regioisomeric (Z)-3-alkyl/aryl-2-(2-phenylcyclohex-2-enylimino)thiazolidin-4-one as the sole product in good yield. The selectivities observed have been rationalized(More)
The success of regeneration attempt is based on an ideal combination of stem cells, scaffolding and growth factors. Tissue constructs help to maintain stem cells in a required area for a desired time. There is a need for easily obtainable cells, potentially autologous stem cells and a biologically acceptable scaffold for use in humans in different difficult(More)
In the title compound, C(15)H(16)IN(3)O(5), the central triazole ring is essentially planar (r.m.s deviation = 0.0034 Å) and makes a dihedral angle of 70.14 (5)° with the pendant benzene ring. The mean planes of the two meth-oxy-carbonyl groups make dihedral angles of 22.52 (7) and 40.93 (4)° with the triazole ring. In the crystal, inversion dimers linked(More)
