Poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) microspheres containing c. 3% bovine serum albumin (BSA) were prepared by melt encapsulation and solvent evaporation techniques. PCL, because of its low Tm, enabled the melt encapsulation of BSA at 75 degrees C thereby avoiding potentially toxic organic solvents such as dichloromethane (DCM). Unlike the solvent evaporation(More)
Six strains of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) classified into subtypes A, B and D were examined by cross-neutralization test using Kumi-1 cells (CD4+, CD8+, and CD9+), an interleukin-2 dependent feline T-lymphocyte cell line. Neutralizing activities against these six FIV strains were also investigated in 50 FIV-antibody-positive serum samples collected(More)
AIM Sugarcane press residue (SPR), a by-product of sugarcane industry, which is rich in inorganic salts was assessed at different levels in both soya based and fish based diets of layers for egg shell and yolk quality characteristics. MATERIALS AND METHODS SPR was incorporated in 32-week-old white leghorn layer diets at 0%, 5%, 10% and 15% either in the(More)
Removal of heavy metal ions from soils by electrokinetic treatment has several advantages. The extent of removal, however, is both soil specific and ion specific. The conditions to be maintained have to be established based on laboratory studies. With a view to maximize the removal of metal ions the trends of removal of heavy metal ions such as iron, nickel(More)
The colonizing ability of a transcipient strain of Bacillus megaterium carrying a lepidopteran-specific cryIA (a) gene of Bacillus thuringiensis in the phyllospheres of various economically important plants was studied. Similar experiments were also carried out using the parental B. thuringiensis var. kurstaki strain HD1 for a comparison. While the(More)
AIM The aim was to study the effect of supplementation of lysine producing microbes (LPM) as an in vivo source of lysine on performance and egg quality characters of post-peak layers. MATERIALS AND METHODS BIS (1992) specified diets (except crude protein [CP] and lysine) were prepared using either soybean meal (SBM) or groundnut extractions (GNE) or(More)
