Studies of families with breast cancer have indicated that male carriers of BRCA2 mutations are at increased risk of prostate cancer, particularly at an early age. To evaluate the contribution of BRCA2 mutations to early-onset prostate cancer, we screened the complete coding sequence of BRCA2 for germline mutations, in 263 men with diagnoses of prostate(More)
IMPORTANCE Animal models suggest that reduced cerebral blood flow (CBF) is one of the most enduring physiological deficits following concussion. Despite this, longitudinal studies documenting serial changes in regional CBF following human concussion have yet to be performed. OBJECTIVE To longitudinally assess the recovery of CBF in a carefully selected(More)
BACKGROUND To understand the molecular mechanism of host responses to highly pathogenic avian influenza virus infection and to get an insight into the means through which virus overcomes host defense mechanism, we studied global gene expression response of human lung carcinoma cells (A549) at early and late stages of infection with highly pathogenic avian(More)
The gap junction protein connexin36 (CX36) has been well studied in the mature central nervous system, but there has been little information regarding its possible roles in embryonic development. We report here the isolation of the full-length chick CX36 coding sequence (predicted M(r) 35.1 kDa) and its strikingly restricted pattern of gene expression in(More)
Despite the vast exploration of rhizospheric microbial wealth for crop yield enhancement, knowledge about the efficacy of microbial agents as biocontrol weapons against root-knot disease is scarce, especially in medicinal plants, viz., Bacopa monnieri. In the present investigation, rhizospheric microbes, viz., Bacillus megaterium, Glomus intraradices,(More)
Mobile ad hoc network is an assembly of mobile nodes that haphazardly forms the temporary network and it is an infrastureless network. Due to its self-motivatedor mobility in nature the nodes are more vulnerable to security threats which stimulate the performance of the network. In this paper, a review on a various types of coordinated attack is deliberated(More)
The present study describes the genotypic distribution of rotaviruses (RVs) in an Indian bovine population with unexpectedly higher proportions of G3 alone or in combination of G8/G10. PCR-genotyping confirmed that 39.4% (13/33) of the prevalent RVs were the G3 type while 60.6% (20/33) were dual G3G10 or G3G8 types. P typing revealed that 93.9% (31/33) of(More)
