The developmental potency of pre-implant parthenogentic goat embryos were compared under two chemical activation protocols in three different culture media groups. The in vitro matured oocytes were chemically activated by two protocols viz. P1 (CB-CHX-6DMAP) and P2 (Ca-CHX-6DMAP). The activated oocytes under both the protocols were developed in three(More)
C/EBPa and C/EBPb are bZIP transcription factors that are highly expressed in the interfollicular epidermis and sebaceous glands of skin and yet germ line deletion of either family member alone has only mild or no effect on keratinocyte biology and their role in sebocyte biology has never been examined. To address possible functional redundancies and reveal(More)
The present study was designed to assess the developmental potential of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) embryos, with and without replenishment of ooplasm into enucleated oocytes, by culturing separately in two culture media. The enucleated oocytes were replenished with exogenous matured ooplasm under replenished nuclear transfer (RNT) method and(More)
Tubercular abscess of the pituitary fossa is rare and may lead to diagnostic uncertainty in a patient with absence of tuberculosis elsewhere in the body. We present a rare case report of a young lady who presented with sellar and suprasellar cystic mass. She was diagnosed as a case of pituitary macroadenoma and was intraoperatively found to harbor pus in(More)
Pediatric adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy with a poor outcome. Molecular mechanisms of pediatric ACC oncogenesis and advancement are not well understood. Accurate and timely diagnosis of the disease requires identification of new markers for pediatric ACC. Differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified from the gene expression(More)
