A bacterial strain, designated as TSB-6, was isolated from the sediments of a Tantloi (India) hot spring at 65 °C. The strain showed 98% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with Anoxybacillus kualawohkensis strain KW12 and was found to grow optimally at 37 °C. However, growing cells, cell suspensions, and cell-free extracts from 65 °C cultures showed higher(More)
Although online, handheld, mobile computers offer new possibilities in searching and retrieving information on-the-go, the fast-paced, " sit-forward " style of interaction may not be appropriate for all user search needs. In this paper, we explore how a handheld computer can be used to enable interactive search experiences that vary in pace from fast and(More)
Intrusion detection system is used to discover illegitimate and unnecessary behavior at accessing or manipulating computer systems. Subsequently, these behaviors are checked as an attack or normal behavior. Intrusion detection systems aim to identify attacks with a high detection rate and a low false positive. Most of the earlier IDs make use of all the(More)
Almost all Web searches are carried out while the user is sitting at a conventional desktop computer, connected to the Internet. Although online, handheld, mobile search offers new possibilities, the fast-paced, focused style of interaction may not be appropriate for all user search needs. In this paper, we explore an alterative, relaxed style for web(More)

Diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome are becoming epidemic both in developed and developing countries in recent years. Complementary and alternative medicines have been used since ancient era for the treatment of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Bitter melon is widely used as vegetables in daily food in Bangladesh and several other countries in(More)
A series of novel β-carboline-based N-heterocyclic carbenes was prepared via Mannich reaction between methyl 1-(dimethoxymethyl)-9H-pyrido[3,4-b]indole-3-carboxylate, formaldehyde, and primary amines. All compounds were evaluated for their antiproliferative activity using human breast cancer and lung cancer cell lines. Three compounds, 3c, 3j, and 3h, were(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperglycemia and insulin resistance often develop cardiovascular and nephrological dysfunction in diabetic patients. Sitagliptin is used to treat diabetes and showed potential benefit in lowering increased blood glucose level in diabetes. This investigation reports the effect of sitagliptin treatment on oxidative stress in kidney and heart of(More)
BACKGROUND A geothermal ecosystem located at Tantloi, India has been found to be an interesting habitat for microbes of diverse nature. However, the microbial diversity of this habitat is poorly explored. In this study, a detailed phylogenetic study has been carried out to understand the bacterial diversity of this habitat and to identify prospective metal(More)
