Arabidopsis and the heat stress transcription factor world: how many heat stress transcription factors do we need?
Sequencing of the Arabidopsis genome revealed a unique complexity of the plant heat stress transcription factor (Hsf) family, and a new class of Hsfs (AtHsfC1) closely related to Hsf1 from rice and to HsFS identified from frequently found expressed sequence tags of tomato, potato, barley, and soybean.

Total Thyroidectomy for Benign Thyroid Disorders in an Endemic Region
Total thyroidectomy should be considered a treatment of choice for multinodular goiter and Graves' disease in a setting of palpable nodule(s) or ophthalmopathy (or both), particularly relevant in endemic regions where patients present with a long-standing, large nodularGoiter with virtually no normal thyroid tissue.

Unique clinical characteristics of primary hyperparathyroidism in India
The clinical characteristics of primary hyperparathyroidism in India are explored with the hypothesis that this may improve understanding of the pathogenesis of the disease worldwide. Expand
Prevalence & potential significance of vitamin D deficiency in Asian Indians.
Overall results of various studies conducted to date in urban and rural Indians indicate that widely prevalent VDD is functionally relevant to skeletal health including osteomalacia and rickets, however, there is a need to explore its association with osteoporosis related fractures and various other non skeletal disorders linked with VDD.

Systematic Review of Primary Hyperparathyroidism in India: The Past, Present, and the Future Trends
It is suggested that dedicated efforts are needed to pick up asymptomatic disease in India by methods like incorporating calcium estimation in the routine health check-up programs. Expand
Prioritizing erosion-prone area through morphometric analysis: an RS and GIS perspective
The geomorphological characteristics of a watershed are more commonly used for developing the regional hydrological models for solving various hydrological problems of the ungauged watersheds inExpand
Tuberculosis of the thyroid gland: a clinicopathological profile of four cases and review of the literature.
Four cases of tuberculosis of the thyroid with different presentations including chronic sinus (following drainage of thyroid abscess), thyrotoxicosis, severe dysphagia clinically mimickingExpand
Altered plasma lipid pattern in falciparum malaria.
Follow-up of 22 of the severe malaria cases three weeks after treatment indicated that, while triglycerides had returned to similar levels to those in the controls, total cholesterol levels were still elevated and could give misleading results if lipid profiles were used, immediately after malaria infection, to assess an individual's risk of developing atherosclerosis.

Shear stress enhances microcin B17 production in a rotating wall bioreactor, but ethanol stress does not
It was found that applying shear stress by addition of a single Teflon bead to a rotating wall bioreactor improved microcin B17 production, and cells growing in theBioreactor were much more resistant to the growth-inhibitory and production-in inhibitory effects of ethanol than cellsgrowing in shaken flasks.
