Muscle growth and development from the embryonic to the adult stage of an organism consists of a series of exquisitely regulated and orchestrated changes in expression of genes leading to muscle maturation. In this study, we performed whole transcriptome profiling of adult caprine skeletal muscle derived myoblast and fused myotubes. Using Ion Torrent PGM(More)
BACKGROUND Changing epidemiology and diagnostic difficulties of paediatric tuberculosis (TB) are being increasingly reported. Our aim was to describe clinico-epidemiological profile and diagnostic procedures used for paediatric TB. METHODS A retrospective case-series analysis was carried out in a tertiary care teaching hospital of western Nepal. All(More)
Understanding the methanogen community structure and methanogenesis from Bubalus bubalis in India may be beneficial to methane mitigation. Our current understanding of the microbial processes leading to methane production is incomplete, and further advancement in the knowledge of methanogenesis pathways would provide means to manipulate its emission in the(More)
Myostatin, a negative regulator of skeletal muscle mass, is a proven candidate to modulate skeletal muscle mass through targeted gene knockdown approach. Here, we report myostatin (MSTN) knockdown in goat myoblasts stably expressing small hairpin RNA (shRNAs) against MSTN gene through lentivirus vector-mediated integration. We observed 72% (p = 0.003) and(More)
Volvulus is an unusual condition in Western countries, generally isolated to elderly patients with multiple comorbidities. This report describes an unusual case of a very large gangrenous sigmoid volvulus in a young, otherwise healthy 25-year-old female. A review of the diagnosis and management is subsequently described. Without a consideration of the(More)
