A bacterium, identified as Brevibacterium sp. MM1, readily hydrolysed fenamiphos, a widely used organophosphorus insecticide and its toxic oxides (fenamiphos sulfoxide, fenamiphos sulfone), which all contain a common P–O–C bond, in a mineral salts medium. The bacterium also hydrolysed fenamiphos and its oxides in soil and groundwater. Interestingly,(More)
Metribuzin (4-amino-6-tert-butyl-4,5-dihydro-3-methylthio-1,2,4-triazin-5-one), is weakly sorbed to soil therefore, leaches easily to lower soil profiles. Soil amendments play a significant role in the management of leaching losses of pesticides. Therefore, present study reports the effect of organic manure and fly ash amendments on metribuzin downward(More)
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a common retinal complication associated with diabetes. It is a major cause of blindness in middle as well as older age groups. Therefore early detection through regular screening and timely intervention will be highly beneficial in effectively controlling the progress of the disease. Since the ratio of people afflicted with the(More)
Histone acetyltransferase (HAT) is an enzyme required for chromatin remodeling and transcriptional activation. Sarcoendoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) ATPase (SERCA) is an ATP coupled Ca(2+) ion pump involved in metabolic arrest. Both these enzymes are present in Plasmodia and have been selected as molecular targets for in silico studies of some new non-resistant(More)
The polymerization of FtsZ is a finely regulated process that plays an essential role in the bacterial cell division process. However, only a few modulators of FtsZ polymerization are known. We identified monosodium glutamate as a potent inducer of FtsZ polymerization. In the presence of GTP, glutamate enhanced the rate and extent of polymerization of FtsZ(More)
The present paper describes the design of a cost effective, better resolution data acquisition system (DAS) which is compatible to most of the PC and laptops. A low cost DAS has been designed using PIC12F675 having 4-channel analog input with 10-bit resolution for the monitoring of slowly varying signals. The DAS so designed is interfaced to the serial port(More)
A low cost PC based real time data logging system can be used in the laboratories for the measurement, monitoring and storage of the data for slowly varying signals in science and engineering stream. This can be designed and interfaced to the PCs Parallel Port, which is common to all desktop computers or Personal Computers (PCs). By the use of this data(More)
Development of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium) live attenuated vaccine carrier strain to prevent enteric infections has been a subject of intensive study. Several mutants of S. Typhimurium have been proposed as an effective live attenuated vaccine strain. Unfortunately, many such mutant strains failed to successfully complete the(More)
BACKGROUND Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis infections are known to exhibit worldwide prevalence with increased morbidity and mortality. The conventional strategies like antibiotic therapy and vaccination have not only proved to be of sub-optimal efficacy but also led to the development of multidrug resistant strains of Salmonella.
