An efficient and reproducible procedure for the large-scale propagation of Dendrocalamus asper is described. High-frequency direct shoot proliferation was induced in aseptic seed cultures of D. asper on modified Murashige and Skoog's (1962) medium supplemented with 1.0–10.0 mg/l benzyladenine (BA). Multiple shoots (1–25) were formed within 5 weeks of seed(More)
Identification and characterization of plant promoters from wild rice genotypes showing inducible expression under soil water stress (SWS) is desirable for transgene expression to generate stress tolerant rice cultivars. A comparative expression profiling of Wsi18, a group 3 LEA gene, revealed differential response under SWS conditions between modern(More)
A rapid, sensitive and simple reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic-electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry method for simultaneous determination of cleomiscosin A and cleomiscosin B has been developed and validated. The isomeric coumarinolignoids cleomiscosin A (1) and cleomiscosin B (2) were separated on a Waters symmetry C(18) column(More)
Some of the medicinal plants valued in Ayurvedic Rasayana for their therapeutic potential have been scientifically investigated with promising results. A number of plant-based principles have been isolated with potential immunomodulatory activity that can explain and justify their use in traditional medicine in the past and can form the basis for further(More)
Expression of sesame plastidial FAD7 desaturase modified with the endoplasmic reticulum targeting and retention signals, enhances the α-linolenic acid accumulation in seeds of Nicotiana tabacum. In plants, plastidial ω-3 fatty acid desaturase-7 (FAD7) catalyzes the formation of C16 and C18 trienoic fatty acids using organellar glycerolipids and participate(More)
Global food security is threatened by the severe environmental conditions that have reduced the worldwide crop yield. Plants possess inherent mechanisms to cope with the initial stress phase but to ensure their survival through harsh climate, the intervention of genetic engineering is desirable. Elucidation of genetic loci and deciphering the underlying(More)
Planktonic and biofilm cells of a clinical urinary isolate ofP. aeruginosa were comparedin vitro for their ability to adhere to uroepithelial cells, interaction with macrophages, and for production of virulence factors like extracellular proteinase, elastase, hemolysin, phospholipase C and pyochelin. Biofilm cells showed increased adherence to UECs, which(More)
In order to test the antibacterial and antifungal activities of different halogenated thymol derivatives, thymol has been converted into chlorothymol, dichlorothymol with N-chlorosuccinimide; monobromothymol, dibromothymol with N-bromosuccinimide; O-methylated iodothymol with ceric ammonium nitrate and iodine from methylated thymol. Among the different(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of tranexamic acid among patients undergoing cesarean delivery who were at high risk of postpartum hemorrhage. METHODS Between August 1, 2012, and April 30, 2013, a randomized controlled trial was performed at a tertiary care center in India. Women undergoing an elective or emergency cesarean delivery who were at high risk(More)
