BACKGROUND Cytokinesis in many eukaryotes involves the function of an actomyosin-based contractile ring. In fission yeast, actomyosin ring maturation and stability require a conserved signaling pathway termed the SIN (septation initiation network). The SIN consists of a GTPase (Spg1p) and three protein kinases, all of which localize to the mitotic spindle(More)

To revegetate denuded areas, indiscriminate introductions of rapidly growing plants have taken place. In majority of the cases, the denuded areas do start looking green in a very short span of time. However, whether or not the introduced plants also bring about amelioration of the habitat needs to be evaluated. A comparative assessment of some leaflet and(More)
The integration of mineral element composition was compared in two tree species of contrasting ecology. The native Prosopis cineraria is slow growing and non-invasive, while the introduced P. juliflora is fast growing, highly aggressive and invasive, and causes substratum degradation in the semi-arid and arid areas of north and north-west India. The two(More)
L-aspartate α-decarboxylase (ADC) belongs to a class of pyruvoyl dependent enzymes and catalyzes the conversion of aspartate to β-alanine in the pantothenate pathway, which is critical for the growth of several micro-organisms, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). Its presence only in micro-organisms, fungi and plants and its absence in animals,(More)
A rare case of traumatic perforation of the ileum in a neonate due to mauling by wild monkey from a hilly area is reported.

Exploratory laparotomy with closure of the perforation was performed and the baby survived. After thorough and careful(More)
INTRODUCTION Thrombotic disorders are among the major fatal conditions affecting the society. Treatment modalities used for such disorders are either surgical interventions or use of drugs such as urokinase, streptokinase (SK), or tissue plasminogen activators to dissolve the blood clots. These modalities have their own limitations and side effects apart(More)
Seed weight, percentage germination, seedling growth, and nutrient concentrations (Mg, Na, K, Zn, Cu and P) of whole seeds, and of seed coats and embryos separately of two tree species, the native Prosopis cineraria and the invasive alien P. juliflora from semi-arid and arid areas of north and north-west India, were analysed to understand the differences in(More)
BACKGROUND Routine immunisation and Vitamin A supplementation are two of many services offered by Government of India to reduce child mortality and morbidity.
