High molecular weight poly aromatic hydrocarbons (HMW PAHs) are well known for their hydrophobicity and they get strongly adsorbed onto the soil particles. Generally, surfactants facilitate the biodegradation of PAH by enhancing their solubility and desorption of hydrophobic compounds from soil particles. To investigate the role of synthetic surfactant in(More)
The present study was aimed to detect urinary proteins excreted in kala-azar patients. Urinary proteins were isolated by ammonium sulfate precipitation and purified by Amicon ultra using 3 kDa cutoff membrane device. The proteins were resolved on 12 % sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and blots were developed with the patients sera.(More)
A buffalo oocyte-specific subtracted cDNA library was constructed to identify exclusively or preferentially oocyte-expressed genes. The library represented an enriched population of transcripts obtained from oocytes of diverse ovarian follicular origin and at different stages of in vitro maturation. A total of 1173 high-quality sequences of oocyte-specific(More)
Despite several decades since the birth of the first test tube baby and the first calf derived from an in vitro-fertilised embryo, the efficiency of assisted reproductive technologies remains less than ideal. Poor oocyte competence is a major factor limiting the efficiency of in vitro embryo production. Developmental competence obtained during oocyte growth(More)
Embryonic genome activation (EGA) is the first major step towards successful initiation of preimplantation development, which culminates in the formation of implantation-competent embryos. EGA occurs at species-specific embryonic cell stages. In the present work, EGA was identified for buffalo embryos by studying the development rate of embryos in normal as(More)
This study was aimed to optimize glucose level at different stages of buffalo in vitro embryo production procedure. Three glucose levels (1.5, 5.6 and 10 mm) along with a control (0 mm) were used at three phases of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedure viz. in vitro maturation (IVM), in vitro culture (IVC-I) (12-72 hpi) and IVC-II (72 hpi to 7 dpi).(More)
BACKGROUND We previously demonstrated embryotrophic actions of maternal (oocyte-derived) follistatin during bovine early embryogenesis. Classical actions of follistatin are attributed to inhibition of activity of growth factors including activins and bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP). However, temporal changes in BMP mRNA in early bovine embryos and the(More)
The DNA methylation pattern in spermatozoa of buffalo bulls of different fertility status was investigated. Spermatozoa isolated DNA from two groups of buffalo bulls (n = 5), selected based on their artificial insemination-generated conception rate data followed by IVF efficiency, were studied for global methylation changes using a custom-designed 180 K(More)
Associations between abnormal methylation of spermatozoan DNA with male infertility have been sought in recent years to identify a molecular explanation of differential spermatozoan function. The present work was undertaken to investigate the methylation profile of differentially methylated regions (DMRs) in the IGF2-H19 locus of Bos taurus X Bos indicus(More)
UNLABELLED Association of pica, iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) and celiac disease (CD) have been reported in the literature. An unusual but completely reversible form of pica in the form obsessive compulsive sponge eating (pervasive disorder) was reported as an odd manifestation of IDA and CD. CONCLUSION The medical practice is full of challenges and(More)
