GC-MS studies on Andrographis paniculata (Burm.f.) Wall. ex Nees - A medicinally important plant
The present study was aimed to examine the phytochemical constituents present in Andrographis paniculata (Burm.f.) Wall. ex Nees. The preliminary phytochemical constituents were qualitativelyExpand
EpCAM aptamer mediated cancer cell specific delivery of EpCAM siRNA using polymeric nanocomplex
The PEI nanocomplex fabricated with EpApt and siEp was able to target EpCAM tumor cells, deliver the siRNA and silence the target gene, and may have potential forEpCAM targeting in vivo. Expand
Fabrication and characterization of fully dense Si–C–N ceramics from a poly(ureamethylvinyl)silazane precursor
Abstract Characterization of the intrinsic physical and mechanical properties of precursor-derived ceramics (PDC) is hitherto hindered by the unavailability of suitable specimens with theExpand
Inter Specific Variation Studies on Cyathea Species Using Phyto- chemical and Fluorescence Analysis
Phytochemical profile on various extracts of selected Cyathea species were analyzed using qualitative chemical tests to find the chemical constituents of the studied Cy athea species which may lead to quantitative estimation and also in locating the source of bioactive principles for various pharmacological properties.
