The mechanistic basis of resistance of vertebrate populations to contaminants, including Atlantic tomcod from the Hudson River (HR) to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), is unknown. HR tomcod exhibited variants in the aryl hydrocarbon receptor 2 (AHR2) that were nearly absent elsewhere. In ligand-binding assays, AHR2-1 protein (common in the HR) was impaired(More)
Sex hormones play a key role in the development of breast cancer. Certain polymorphic variants (SNPs and repeat polymorphisms) in hormone-related genes are associated with sex hormone levels. However, the relationship observed between these genetic variants and breast cancer risk has been inconsistent. We conducted a case-control study nested within two(More)
Phragmites australis is a perennial grass that has invaded wetlands of the northeastern United States over the past century. The Hudson River Estuary and surrounding watersheds are no exception in that populations of P. australis have spread dramatically along its shores and tributaries in the past 40 years. Recent studies have shown that genetically(More)
In recent years e-Governance has become an important area of research for the academicians and IT professionals. At present status, e-Governance has been implemented in most of the developed countries; developing countries are struggling to achieve the due share by implementing it. Several studies show that implementation of e-Governance in developing(More)
Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) are widely used by industries to minimize the ash content and particulate matters present in the exhaust of boilers or furnaces. It reduces atmospheric air pollution which causes environmental hazards on Earth. Mindful of the increasing concerns about the effects of air pollution, regulatory bodies such as Pollution(More)
