In the search of developing herbal acaricides, eight medicinal plants were screened for their efficacy against Boophilus microplus, the widely distributed tick species in India. Of the seven extracts screened, the extracts prepared from the Annona squamosa seed showed very high level of efficacy (70.8%) after 24 h of treatment. The effect of treatment on(More)
Implementation of digital controllers in embedded environment suffers from the inherent problems associated with analog-digital signals interfacing in hard real-time, therefore, the control algorithms are invariantly subjected to approximations. This paper presents a novel technique for implementation of an efficient FPGA based digital(More)
During 2004–2006, group A rotavirus P[8] strains were the major VP4 genotype (43.2%, n = 317) among diarrhoeic children in Eastern India. Phylogenetic analysis of VP8* amino acid sequences of 16 of these strains with other P[8] strains revealed four distinct lineages. P[8] strains from Eastern India clustered within rare OP354-like and Hun9-like lineages,(More)
Extracts were prepared from leaf, bark, and seed of Azadirachta indica, leaf and seed of Prunus persica, bark of Mangifera indica, and leaf of Psidium guajava and were evaluated against Boophilus microplus. Of the eight extracts screened, the extracts prepared from the A. indica seed showed very high level of efficacy (80%) after 5 h of treatment. Besides(More)
India is predominantly an agricultural country with about 70% of her population dependent on income from agriculture. Although India accounts for a significant share of world’s livestock resources, livestock production is greatly affected by ticks and tick-borne diseases (TTBDs). Therefore, India represents a particularly interesting scenario for the study(More)
Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum is a three-host tick which transmits Theileria annulata infection in Indian cattle. Laboratory rearing of ixodid ticks is an essential requirement of any laboratory engaged with research on ticks and tick borne diseases. The Entomology laboratory of Indian Veterinary Research Institute is fully equipped with all the facilities(More)
The carcino-embryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule (CEACAM)2 is produced in many feeding control centres in the brain, but not in peripheral insulin-targeted tissues. Global Ceacam2 null mutation causes insulin resistance and obesity resulting from hyperphagia and hypometabolism in female Ceacam2 homozygous null mutant mice (Cc2 [also known as(More)
During a surveillance study, four of 130 group A rotavirus strains, detected from diarrheic calves in Eastern India, exhibited G3P[3] specificities. Molecular characterization of VP7 and VP8* genes of one such strain [named as RUBV3 (RU: ruminant and BV: bovine)] revealed genetic relatedness to a G3P[3] simian strain, RRV, and RRV-related caprine strain(More)
