Following the diminishing hopes from the first and second generation biofuels, mainly due to the limitations of land availability, feed stock requirements, and complicated pre-treatments, third generation biofuels from microalgae are becoming a priority in the current scenario. The present study focuses on comparison and optimization of lipid accumulation(More)
Neuropathic pain arising from peripheral nerve injury is a clinical disorder characterized by a combination of spontaneous pain, hyperalgesia and tactile pain (allodynia), and remains a significant clinical problem since it is often poorly relieved by conventional analgesics. Despite the progress that has occurred in recent years in the development of(More)
This work investigated the potential of medium engineering to obtain maximum biomass, non-conventional carbon sources for lipstatin production and modulation of tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle to promote lipstatin synthesis. It was found that 2:3 carbon and nitrogen ratio, produced maximum biomass of 7.9g/L in growth medium and 6.6g/L in pre-seed medium.(More)
A lubricated contact suffers from starvation when the lubricant does not fill the contact inlet adequately. Such a situation arises due to short lubricant supply or at extremely high speeds. The starvation effect is modeled by shifting the position of the inlet meniscus towards the contact zone. The degree of starvation, so obtained, is plotted as a(More)
The present study envisages the role of different carbon sources, nitrogen sources, metals, pH, inoculum volume and agitation rate in pellet formation of S. toxytricini at shake-flask level. It was found that galactose, ammonium sulphate, sodium nitrate, Cu2+, Zn2+, higher inoculum volume (5% v/v) and agitation rate at 300rpm caused significant reduction in(More)
Cancer is a clinical situation caused by uncontrolled cell division and is responsible for a large number of deaths worldwide. Colchicine is a classical antimitotic, tubulin-binding agent (TBA) which is being explored for its antitumor activities, although its tubulin-binding ability leads to some toxicity toward normal cells proliferation. Colchicine(More)
