Arabidopsis thaliana ecotype Columbia was used as a host in order to investigate the involvement of MAP kinase machinery in the pathogenesis of Alternaria blight. Semi-quantitative reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction and quantitative real time PCR based approaches were used to determine the change in transcript profile of MAP2K9 and MAPK6 in(More)
Chromobacterium violaceum, Gram-negative bacteria species found in tropical regions of the world, produces a distinct deep violet-colored pigment called violacein. In the present study, we investigated whether violacein can promote a gastroprotective effect and verified the possible mechanisms involved in this action. For this study, an indomethacin-induced(More)
As the world races towards a plant-based bioeconomy, plants known to be ideal and economical bioreactors are being harnessed for the production of recombinant proteins. The major immunodominant 10 kDa GroES TB antigen (Chaperonin 10) gene from Mycobacterium tuberculosis was selected for expression in plants as a putative tuberculosis (TB) subunit vaccine(More)
