To investigate the conversion of carbazole into 2′-aminobiphenyl-2,3-diol using carbazole dioxygenase (CARDO) that is a multicomponent enzyme consisting of homotrimeric terminal oxygenases (CarAa), a ferredoxin (CarAc) and a ferredoxin reductase (CarAd) unit, encoded by the carAa, carAc and carAd genes, respectively. The enzyme subunits containing a GST tag(More)
Big Data technology is a generic technology, which can be applied to any real-world problem that involves a lot of data. Moreover, the use of cloud-based infrastructure to implement the big data technology makes it a cost-effective solution to the big data problem. One of the fundamental sectors that can benefit from this technology is education and(More)
With the view of designing a single biocatalyst for biorefining, carbazole dioxygenase was cloned from Pseudomonas sp. and expressed in Rhodococcus sp. The recombinant, IGTS8, degraded both carbazole and dibenzothiophene at 400 mg/l in 24 h. Maximum carbazole degradation was in 1:1 (v/v) hexadecane/aqueous phase. Anthracene, phenanthrene, pyrene,(More)
Hot peppers used as natural flavoring and coloring agents are usually irradiated in prepacked form for decontamination. The effects of gamma radiation on the stability of functional components such as capsaicinoids and antioxidant compounds (carotenoids, ascorbic acid and total phenolics) were investigated in hot peppers (Capsicum annuum). Whole dried(More)
The advent of the digital age has led to a rise in different types of data with every passing day. In fact, it is expected that half of the total data will be on the cloud by 2016. This data is complex and needs to be stored, processed and analyzed for information that can be used by organizations. Cloud computing provides an apt platform for big data(More)
Chronic eosinophilic pneumonia (CEP) is an idiopathic disorder characterized by an abnormal and marked accumulation of eosinophils in the interstitial and alveolar spaces of the lung. Idiopathic chronic eosinophilic pneumonia is reported to comprise anywhere from 0-2.5% of cases within the registries of interstitial lung disease. Diagnosis is based on the(More)
Background: Doctor’s prescription provides vivid information and instruction to the patient. In spite of the WHO programs, irrational prescribing is still a common practice. Aim: To evaluate and compare the prescribing pattern of private practitioners and physicians of a tertiary care teaching hospital in a semi urban area and detect their rationality.(More)
