Early maturing short duration cold-tolerant chickpea cultivars are being introduced to avoid yield loss from spell faced by crops. However, the biochemical basis of the low temperature stress tolerance is not known. In the present study carbon and nitrogen metabolizing enzymes in nodules along with physiological indices were measured in early maturing short(More)
Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genotypes are sensitive to low temperature (<10°C) during its reproductive stage suffer from abortion of flowers, infertile pods and small shriveled seeds that resulted in a significant decrease in crop yield. In the present investigation seeds of a number of cold stress-tolerant and susceptible genotypes were evaluated for(More)
Helicoverpa armigera is the most devastating pest of important crops causing heavy yield losses. The larval midgut harbours proteases and their inhibition starves insects to death or may disrupt their normal metabolism. So there is need to characterize gut protease and its potential inhibitors. A serine protease (trypsin like) from H. armigera gut was(More)
— Software reuse is the process of using existing software components to develop new software product. Searching and retrieving reusable components for efficient software reuse are the major challenges faced during reuse. To reuse the any software component, there should be an efficient retrieval mechanism to retrieve the reusable component from repository.(More)
Six genotypes and thirty-eight advance breeding lines of lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.) were evaluated for carbohydrate composition, soluble proteins, mineral content and antinutritional traits such as phenolic compounds, tannins, trypsin inhibitors, saponins and phytic acid. The average content of total sugars, starch and proteins was found to be 47.18,(More)
Seeds of thirty chickpea genotypes were evaluated for their stress tolerance capacity and nutritional status. The genotypes exhibiting higher 1,1-Diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radical scavenging activity (≥57.1 %), high proline (≥0.23 µmol/g) and total phenol (≥0.77 mg/g) contents were observed to exhibit reduced levels of hydrogen peroxide (≤160.3 µmol/g) and(More)
