Machado-Joseph disease (MJD) is one of at least six neurodegenerative diseases caused by expansion of a CAG repeat encoding a polyglutamine tract in the disease protein. To study the molecular mechanism of disease, we isolated both normal and expanded repeat MJD1 cDNAs, and generated antiserum against the recombinant gene product, called ataxin-3. Using(More)
Cissus quadrangularis Linn. is a succulent plant of family Vitaceae commonly found in tropical and subtropical xeric wood. It is a fleshy, cactus-like liana widely used as a common food item in India. The plant contains calcium oxalate, β-carotene, ascorbic acid, β-sitosterol and 3-ketosteroids, also falvonoids such as quercetin, and kaempferol. The stem(More)
Psyllium Husk, commonly known as Sat-Isabgol is a biomass of medicinal value from Plantago ovate plant. Clean Psyllium husk is produced through winnowing process. Khakha powder is generated as a waste material from winnowing process. It is a cellulosic mass and hence can be used as carbon precursor. Khakha powder was pyrolyzed and subjected to steam(More)
Toxic heavy metals were investigated in the medicinal plant Mentha longifolia. The plant samples were collected from different locations of Chhattisgarh, Central India. The plant parts including root, stem and leaves were found to have the quantity of heavy metals. Plant ability to accumulate and translocate the toxic metals i.e. Cr, Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn, and Pb(More)
Heavy alkaline metals are characterized by close proximity of empty d-bands to the Fermi energy EF. Effect of closeness of EF to d-bands on different physical properties is highest in barium with substantial sp-d hybridization, which is further influenced by the application of pressure and temperature. While the evanescent form of pseudopotential is(More)
Carbon has been of great scientific and technological interest over all civilizations, mainly because of its application of its own but also in development of products through combinations with other elements. This interest is mainly due to the numerous structures it can be formed of. The latest interests are nanocarbons, mainly carbon nanotubes and(More)
Films of -MnS were deposited by chemical bath deposition (CBD) technique on glass slide substrates. The EDAX analysis showed that the film contains Mn and S elements without any other impurity. The EDAX weight percentage showed the film to be in perfect stoichiometry. The XRD showed that the synthesized MnS thin film possess hexagonal structure. The(More)

The effectiveness of low cost, spent biomass of oleaginous Pythium sp (solid biomass left over after extraction of oil from Pythium biomass) was evaluated for removal of Cr(VI) by biosorption as a function of time; initial Cr(VI) concentration and temperature. Batch studies indicated that Cr(VI) biosorption capacity (qeq) of spent biomass achieved(More)
Catalytic chemical vapour deposition (CCVD) was used to synthesize CNTs, on silica substrate using xylene as carbon precursor and ferrocene as catalyst source. The carbon nanotubes are multiwall nanotubes which have been found to grow in bundles with CNTs within the bundles growing in one direction in a zig zag manner. The inner diameter of the tubes is(More)

Single crystals of Tungsten diselenide (WSe2) have been grown using direct vapour transport technique (DVT). Measurements of thermoelectric power in temperature range 300 – 673K confirms that WSe2 possess a p-type conductivity. The Ohmic cotacts were developed using Ag-paste and the Hall effect measurements have been carried out in the temperature range 10(More)
