Sporulation in mycobacteria
It is shown that old cultures of Mycobacterium marinum contained spores that, upon exposure to fresh medium, germinated into vegetative cells and reappeared again in stationary phase via endospore formation, tempting us to suggest this as a possible mechanism for dormancy and/or persistent infection.
Micro-cloning in Commercially Important Six Bamboo Species for Mass Propagation and at a Large Scale Cultivation
In vitro cloning of some commercially important bamboos tried by using nodal buds found them suitable for large scale cultivation and frequent changes of rooting media had improved production of rooted plantlets.
A sensitive method for determination of allergenic fragrance terpene hydroperoxides using liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry.
The sensitivity and selectivity of the presented LC/MS/MS method enables detection of hydroperoxides from the fragrance terpenes linalool, linalyl acetate, and limonene, however, for routine measurements, the method requires further validation.
Growth, cell division and sporulation in mycobacteria
The findings suggest that sporulation might be an adaptation of lifestyle for mycobacteria under stress, and the current understanding of growth, cell division, and sporulation in myCobacteria is discussed.
Introgression of cotton leaf curl virus-resistant genes from Asiatic cotton (Gossypium arboreum) into upland cotton (G. hirsutum).
All F(1) cotton hybrids showed resistance against CLCuV, indicating that it is possible to transfer resistant genes from the autotetraploid of the diploid donor specie G. hirsutum through conventional breeding, and durable resistance against the Burewala strain of cotton leaf curl virus can then be deployed in the field.
Direct Detection of the Multidrug Resistance Genome of Haemophilus influenzae in Cerebrospinal Fluid of Children: Implications for Treatment of Meningitis
The ability to detect MDR, in culture negative Hib meningitis cases has significant implications for better directing antibiotic treatment of meningococcal cases and thus for preventing disability and death.
Effect of Phosphorus and Sulphur on Growth and Yield of Soybean ( Glycine max L.)
A field experiment was conducted at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Farm, Dhaka, Bangladesh from December 2008 to April 2009 to evaluate the effect of P (viz. 0, 15, 30, 50 kg P2O5 ha−1) and S
Anti-allergic activity of standardized extract of Albizia lebbeck with reference to catechin as a phytomarker
Results support the conclusion that Albizia lebbeck at different concentrations has got potent mast cell stabilizing property and the IC50 value of AlbizIA lebBeck was found to be 85 μg/ml.
