Peripheral nerve axotomy induces apoptosis in Schwann cell precursors; basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) protects these cells from axotomy-induced apoptosis (Jessen et al.: Neuron 12:509-527, 1994; Gavrilovic et al.: Eur J Neurosci 7:7-85, 1995). In this study, we investigate the effects of bFGF on apoptosis in neuron-free cultures of neonatal rat(More)
Due to socio-economic reasons, it is essential to design efficient stress-tolerant, more nutritious, high yielding rice varieties. A systematic understanding of the rice cellular metabolism is essential for this purpose. Here, we analyse a genome-scale metabolic model of rice leaf using Flux Balance Analysis to investigate whether it has potential metabolic(More)
Previously we have used a genome scale model of rice metabolism to describe how metabolism reconfigures at different light intensities in an expanding leaf of rice. Although this established that the metabolism of the leaf was adequately represented, in the model, the scenario was not that of the typical function of the leaf-to provide material for the rest(More)
More than 20% of the total caloric intake of human population comes from rice. The expression of rice genes and hence, the concentration of enzymatic proteins might vary due to several biotic and abiotic stresses. It in turn, can influence the overall metabolism and survivability of rice plant. Thus, understanding the rice cellular metabolism, its(More)
Oligodendroglia synthesize myelin in the CNS. In vitro, oligodendroglia may be identified by the binding of monoclonal antibodies against galactocerebroside, a myelin-specific galactolipid. Oligodendroglial trophic factor is a protein mitogen for cells of the oligodendroglial lineage. When oligodendroglia in cerebral white matter cultures are treated with(More)
