Evaluation of genetic diversity in jute (Corchorus species) using STMS, ISSR and RAPD markers
The germplasm accessions in both the cultivated species showed considerably higher levels of diversity and thus should be used in broadening the base of the varieties, particularly those of C. capsularis and C. aestuans. Expand
An improved method of DNA isolation suitable for PCR-based detection of begomoviruses from jute and other mucilaginous plants.
The modification including use of more volume of extraction buffer and dissolving crude nucleic acid pellet in 1 M NaCl, reduced markedly the viscosity of the mucilage and thus in the final purification step yielded a larger quantity of mucilage-free DNA suitable for subsequent PCR-based detection of begomoviruses.

Comparison of cytokine modulation by natural peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma ligands with synthetic ligands in intestinal-like Caco-2 cells and human dendritic cells--potential for
This effect of PUFAs in Caco-2 cells is similar to that of troglitazone on intestinal inflammation mediated by PPARgamma, and the potency of the antiinflammatory effect is linked to the number of double bonds. Expand
Green Tea Polyphenols Induce Apoptosis in vitro in Peripheral Blood T Lymphocytes of Adult T‐Cell Leukemia Patients
It is indicated that TEA and EGCg inhibit growth of ATL PBLs, as well as HTLV‐I‐infected T‐cells, by suppressing HTLV-I pX gene expression and inducing apoptotic cell death. Expand
Distribution, epidemiology and molecular variability of the begomovirus complexes associated with yellow vein mosaic disease of mesta in India.
A regression approach was adopted to consider the relationship of whitefly vector populations with weather conditions and disease spread which explained that different conducive weather factors facilitated the build up of white fly populations and contributed to the spread of the disease. Expand

Inoculation with RNMV resulted in increased plant height, leaf size, stem diameter, and number and size of fiber bundles in Corchorus olitorius L., C. capsularis L., Hibiscus sabdariffa L. and H. cannabinus L. Expand
Nitric Oxide Production by Necrotrophic Pathogen Macrophomina phaseolina and the Host Plant in Charcoal Rot Disease of Jute: Complexity of the Interplay between Necrotroph–Host Plant Interactions
Interestingly, M. phaseolina was found to produce nitric oxide which was detected in vitro inside the mycelium and in the surrounding medium and may have important physiological significance in necrotrophic host pathogen interaction. Expand
Induction of Vasculogenic Mimicry Overrides VEGF-A Silencing and Enriches Stem-like Cancer Cells in Melanoma.
The adaptive response to VEGF-A inhibition by a loss-of-function analysis using plasmid-based shRNA is examined, highlighting the potential risk of anti-VEGF treatments owing to a selective pressure for an adaptive resistance mechanism that empowers the development of stem-like cancer cells. Expand
Azidothymidine inhibits NF-kappaB and induces Epstein-Barr virus gene expression in Burkitt lymphoma.
In EBV+ BLs, AZT but not ganciclovir (GCV) was highly phosphorylated to its monophosphate form (AZT-MP) and phosphorylation, as well as apoptosis, was markedly enhanced in the presence of hydroxyurea. Expand
Combination Treatment with Theranostic Nanoparticles for Glioblastoma Sensitization to TMZ
While the results demonstrate that siRNA delivery by targeted nanoparticles resulted in modulating tumor response to chemotherapy in GBM, they also point to a significant contribution of CTX to tumor cell death. Expand
