Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) belongs to a class of wireless network that is a spontaneous network can be formed dynamically and randomly without the need for infrastructural setups; therefore the mobile hosts communicate over multi-hop wireless links. In addition to the high degree of mobility, MANET nodes are distinguished by their limited resources(More)
Xanthine oxidase is an important enzyme of purine metabolism that catalyzes the hydroxylation of hypoxanthine to xanthine and then xanthine to uric acid. A thermostable xanthine oxidase is being reported from a thermophilic organism RL-2d isolated from the Manikaran (Kullu) hot spring of Himachal Pradesh (India). Based on the morphology, physiological(More)
An intracellular aliphatic amide degrading inducible amidase produced by Rhodococcus rhodochrous PA-34 was characterized and acrylic acid synthesis from acrylamide was carried out using whole cell amidase. A bioprocess was developed at 50 ml fed batch reaction using 400 mM acrylamide feeding at an interval of 30 min resulted in the production of 4 g acrylic(More)
Sapindus mukorossi Gaertn. (Sapindaceae) locally known as “Reetha” has the reputation of being used as a medicinal herb against sexually transmitted diseases in Nepal. Using the mean zone of inhibition by agar well diffusion method and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) by test tube dilution method the powdered leaf extract was tested against Neisseria(More)
BACKGROUND Bispectral index monitoring system (BIS) is one of the several systems used to measure the effects of anaesthetic and sedative drugs on the brain and to track changes in the patient's level of sedation and hypnosis. BIS monitoring provides information clinically relevant to the adjustment of dosages of sedating medication. It can help the nursing(More)
Proteases are a class of enzymes that catalyze hydrolysis of peptide bonds of proteins. In this study, 221 proteolytic bacterial isolates were obtained by enrichment culture method from soils of various regions of Himachal Pradesh, India. From these a hyper producer of protease was screened and identified by morphological and physiological testing and by(More)
