Mycobacteriosis is a progressive disease of a wide range of wild and captive, marine and freshwater fish species. Conventional detection of fish Mycobacteria is based on histopathology, culture, and biochemical characteristics. The present study analyzed the occurrence of Mycobacteria in clinically ill ornamental fish of different species, from different(More)
Over expression of Protein kinase (CK2) suppresses apoptosis induced by a variety of agents, whereas down-regulation of CK2 sensitizes cells to induction of apoptosis. In this study, we have built quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR) models, which were trained and tested on experimentally verified 38 enzyme׳s inhibitors having inhibitory(More)
Oral cancer is the cancerous tissue growth located in the oral cavity. It may arise as a primary lesion originating in any of the oral tissues, by metastasis from a distant site of origin, or by extension from a neighboring anatomic structure, such as the nasal cavity or the maxillary sinus. Smoking and other tobacco use are associated with about 75 percent(More)
β-glucan particles (GP) are polymeric carbohydrates, mainly found as components of cell wall fungi, yeast, bacteria and also in cereals such as barley and oat, and have been recently shown to have application in macrophage-targeted drug delivery. The aim of this study was to prepare and characterize GP containing a large payload of Rifabutin (RB), an(More)
We have recently identified disorganized muscle protein-1 (DIM-1) in one of the proinflammatory fractions of the human filaria Brugia malayi adult worm. The present study was undertaken to characterize B. malayi DIM-1 (DIM-1bm) and explore its vaccine potential. In this study we cloned and expressed the DIM-1bm gene, investigated its sequence homology with(More)
Beta-glucans are carbohydrates (glucose polymers) found in the cell walls of fungi, yeast, algae, lichens, and plants such as oats and barley. Beta-glucans bind to glucan receptor on phagocytic cells and modify these cells to become "immunologically active" by generating a variety of innate immune responses. Particulate beta-glucan has been specifically(More)
Cypermethrin is a synthetic type II pyrethroid, derived from a natural pyrethrin of the chrysanthemum plant. Cypermethrin-mediated neurotoxicity is well studied; however, relatively less is known of its effect on astrocyte development and migration. Astrocytes are the major components of blood brain barrier (BBB), and astrocyte damage along with BBB(More)
Exposure to a mixture of As, Pb and Cd induces apoptosis and morphological alterations in the cortical astrocytes of rat brain. The levels of the glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) undergo a reduction. The GFAP exists in several isoforms, viz., α, β, κ, δ and ϵ. However, contribution of the isoforms towards astrocyte damage is not understood. We(More)
