The present study has been designed to investigate the protective effect of L-theanine against 3-nitropropionic acid (3-NP)-induced Huntington's disease (HD)-like symptoms in rats. The present experimental protocol design includes systemic 3-NP acid (10 mg/kg intraperitonially) treatment for 14 d. L-theanine (100 and 200 mg/kg) was given orally, once a day,(More)
Although less sensitive than mass spectrometry (MS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy provides a powerful complementary technique for the identification and quantitative analysis of plant metabolites either in vivo or in tissue extracts. In one approach, metabolite fingerprinting, multivariate analysis of unassigned 1H NMR spectra is used to(More)
Communication is critical between nodes in wireless sensor networks. Upgrades to their communication software need to be done reliably because residual software errors in the new module can cause complete system failure. We present a software architecture, called cSimplex, which can reliably upgrade multicast-based group communication software in sensor(More)
The study was conducted to assess the effects of salinity on growth and biochemical composition of freshwater catfish, Clarias batrachus. A static nonrenewable acute toxicity bioassay test was conducted and LC50 of salinity for 96-h exposure to the fingerling (14.5 cm) was 12.52 ‰. Based on these results, two sublethal salinity levels, viz. 4 and 8 ‰ were(More)
The interactive effect of temperature with other climatic and soil factors has profound influences on the growth and development of rice. The responses of rice to high temperatures under field conditions are more important than those under the controlled conditions. To understand the genes associated with high temperature stress response in general and(More)
In this study, mitochondrial genes 16S and cytochrome C oxidase I (COI) were used as taxonomic markers for the molecular analysis of selected fishes from the southwest coastal waters of India, viz., Sillago sihama (Forsskål, 1775), Mene maculata (Bloch & Schneider, 1801), Seriolina nigrofasciata (Ruppell, 1829), and Minous dempsterae (Eschmeyer, Hallacher &(More)
The successful outcome of a cochlear implant habilitation program depends upon a multitude of vital factors, including the avid cooperation of the cochlear implantee, committed participation of the parents/family members and total dedication of the habilitation team of implant audiologists and auditory verbal therapists. In a rare situation, where the(More)
