The reticulon-4 receptor, encoded by RTN4R, limits axonal sprouting and neural plasticity by inhibiting the outgrowth of neurites. Human association studies have implicated mutations in RTN4R in the development of schizophrenia, including the identification of several rare nonconservative missense mutations of RTN4R in schizophrenia patients. To investigate(More)
Pangasianodon hypophthalmus is one of the fast-growing catfish of freshwater origin, and its growth is attributed by the action of growth hormone (GH). In this study, the growth hormone gene (PhGH) of 3.0 kb was characterized, and it is composed of five exons and four introns and having characteristics of an upstream region that contains TATA, CAAT boxes,(More)
BACKGROUND Dermatoglyphics and bronchial asthma (BA) are both influenced by genetic factors. Hence, we assessed the diagnostic potential of correlation between fingerprint pattern and BA. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was carried out in out-patient Department of Pulmonary Medicine of All India Institute of Medical Sciences Bhopal. It included 36(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE 9,10-Dihydro-2,5-dimethoxyphenanthrene-1,7-diol (RSCL-0520) is a phenanthrene isolated from Eulophia ochreata, one of the Orchidaceae family, known by local tradition to exhibit medicinal properties. However, no anti-inflammatory activity or any molecular mechanisms involved have been reported or elucidated. Here, for the first time,(More)
Changes in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism during embryonic development inAntheraea mylitta were studied. While carbohydrates were metabolized during early embryogenesis, lipids were catabolised at the later stages. A significant increase in both total carbohydrates and glycogen on days 5 and 6 suggested the concurrent occurrence of both gluconeogenesis(More)
The regulation of cytokines and pro-inflammatory genes is an absolute essentiality to combat inflammatory diseases. The present study investigated the effects of 4-O-chloroacetyl-2,3-di-O-acetyl-6-O-levulinoyl-beta-d-glucopyranosyl]-(1-3)-1-O-(p-methoxyphenyl)-2-deoxy-2-N-trichloroacetyl-4,6-O-benzylidene-alpha-d-glucopyranoside (RSCL-0409), a novel small(More)
The genetic diversity of five feral populations of Asian Sea bass, Lates calcarifer collected from five isolated locations in India viz., Paradeep, Chilka lake, Kakinada, Chennai and Mumbai was studied using randomly amplified polymorphic DNA. Out of 20 primers screened, 5 decamer random primers amplified a total of 373 DNA bands of which 137 bands were(More)
