The keratinophilic soil fungus Chrysosporium tropicum was evaluated as a biological control agent against Anopheles stephensi larvae in the laboratory. Culture filtrates of C. tropicum were found to be toxic to An. stephensi larvae at various concentrations. The ranges of the 50% lethal concentration (LC50) values of fungal filtrates were 16.60-17.78,(More)
Pregnane & Xenobiotic Receptor (PXR) is one of the 48 members of the nuclear receptor superfamily of ligand-modulated transcription factors. PXR plays an important role in metabolism and elimination of diverse noxious endobiotics and xenobiotics. Like in case of some nuclear receptors its function may also be differentially altered, positively or(More)
Prostate cancer (CaP) is a common reproductive cancer among men. This study was conducted to correlate the cancer incidence with Gangetic zone and to correlate the tumor marker prostate specific antigen (PSA) level in serum with different age groups and stage of malignancy. Patients suffering from CaP in the pathology unit of Mahavir Cancer Sansthan(More)
Present work proposes an iterative technique to estimate reflection weighting function and transduction weighting function simultaneously to achieve a desired single-phase unidirectional transducer (SPUDT) response. The technique uses the p-matrix formulation in order to describe characteristics of a SPUDT. Simulation results are presented to show the(More)
The properties of DNA sequences offer an opportunity to develop DNA specific compression algorithm. A lossless two phase compression algorithm is presented for DNA sequences. In the first phase a modified version of Run Length Encoding (RLE) is applied and in the second phase the resultant genetic sequences is compressed using ASCII values. Using ASCII(More)
Fingerprint is most widely used in individual identification especially in civilian applications, forensic laboratories etc. due to large bio-invariant characteristics of human fingerprints. A search over all the records in a data base takes a very long time and deteriorates accuracy as database is very large. To avoid this inconvenience, automatic(More)
Efficacy of fungal metabolites of Chrysosporium tropicum was evaluated against Culex quinquefasciatus larvae in the laboratory to determine their larvicidal activity at 6 concentrations, with a mortality range of 10-95%. Efficacy of C. tropicum was analyzed by probit analysis procedures. The LC50 (concentration lethal to 50% of the population) values were(More)
INTRODUCTION The high strength porcelain fused metal crowns have been extensively used in dentistry. However, the fit is the most encountered problems in porcelain fused metal crowns. This mainly depends on the fabrication technique. AIM The purpose was to compare the internal and marginal fit of laser sintered and conventionally casted Cobalt-Chromium(More)
We report lithium ion intercalation mediated efficient exfoliation of graphite to form monolithic graphene sheets which have subsequently been investigated for the development of highly sensitive label-free electrochemical detection platform for cardiac biomarker, Troponin I (cTnI). The spectroscopic and morphological analysis demonstrated the formation of(More)
BACKGROUND The RBCs storage lesion is most carefully viewed as the sum of all the changes in RBCs occurring during the course of storage and that limit their survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS Erythrocytes were isolated from stored blood at regular intervals. Oxidative stress markers were analyzed to determine the changes during the storage. RESULTS(More)
