Cardiac myosin was examined during the four pathologic stages of cardiomyopathy in strain BIO 14.6 of Syrian hamsters. It was determined that the Ca2+- and K+-ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA)-activated ATPase activities of ventricular myosin were significantly reduced during the final stage of the inherited disease. One- and 2-dimensional gel(More)
This study investigated whether subfertile women undergoing ovulation induction using standard treatment regimens with clomiphene citrate/gonadotrophins have higher pregnancy rates when on an adjuvant multiple micronutrient (MMN) nutritional supplement compared with folic acid alone. A prospective randomized controlled trial was conducted in a(More)
The actions of glucocorticoids at the feto-maternal interface are not well understood. Here, we show that decidualization of human endometrial stromal cells (HESCs) in response to progesterone and cAMP signaling is associated with a strong induction of 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11βHSD1) expression and enzyme activity. Decidualization also(More)
BACKGROUND Decidualizing human endometrial stromal cells (HESCs) profoundly up-regulate 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11βHSD1), the enzyme that converts inert cortisone to active cortisol. We postulated that the induction of a cortisol gradient upon decidualization of the periimplantation endometrium may impact on the uterine natural killer (uNK)(More)
Sorption capacity of different parts of Eichhornia crassipes, such as rhizome, root, lamina and petiole on basic aurophine-o was studied in a batch system. The equilibrium uptake capacity was observed as 13.65 mg/g (using root), 13.5 mg/g (using lamina), 12.9 mg/g (using rhizome) and 12.75 mg/g (using petiole). It was observed that the equilibrium dye(More)
The timber-boring isopods (family Sphaeromidae) namely Sphaeroma terebrans, S. annandalei, S.a. travancorensis and S. triste occurring in Indian waters were studied for primary and secondary sex characters. A concise comparative account of the primary and secondary sex characters such as penial sacs, “appendix masculina” and oostegites has been given. The(More)
A potent polypeptide inhibitor of chymotrypsin has been purified from Russett Burbank potatoes. The inhibitor has no effect on bovine carboxypeptidases A or B but exhibits homology with a carboxypeptidase inhibitor that is also present in potato tubers. The chymotrypsin inhibitor has a molecular weight of approximately 5400 as estimated by gel filtration,(More)
