Lentil (Lens culinaris ssp. culinaris), is a self-pollinating diploid (2n = 2x = 14), cool-season legume crop and is consumed worldwide as a rich source of protein (~24.0%), largely in vegetarian diets. Here we report development of a genetic linkage map of Lens using 114 F2 plants derived from the intersubspecific cross between L 830 and ILWL 77. RAPD(More)
Agrin activates an intracellular signaling pathway to induce the formation of postsynaptic specializations on muscle fibers. In myotubes in culture, this pathway has been shown to include autophosphorylation of the muscle-specific kinase MuSK, activation of Src-family kinases, tyrosine phosphorylation of the acetylcholine receptor (AChR) beta subunit, a(More)
Comparisons of glycolytic enzymes between rapidly proliferating and Bt2 cAMP-induced differentiated C6 glioma cells have been made. Rapidly proliferating cells had higher concentrations of glucose-6-phosphate, fructose-6-phosphate and fructose-1,6-bisphosphate compared to morphologically differentiated cells. Under maximally activating conditions, the(More)
A monoclonal antibody 6DS1 against a human glioblastoma multiforme cell line U-87MG recognizes a tumor-specific, cell surface antigen of human glioblastoma cell lines. Partial cross-reactivity is observed with two human neuroblastoma cell lines, SK-N-SH and SK-N-MC, with little or no reactivity towards a rat glioma cell line C6 or normal human adult and(More)
Mantisia spathulata Schult. and M. wengeri Fischer, two critically-endangered, endemic and rare species of the genus Mantisia (Zingiberaceae), have been rediscovered from Lunglei province of Mizoram, India, after two decades. For sustainable conservation and utilization of the Mantisia species, in vitro seed and clonal propagation methods have been(More)
Leaf gas exchange, plant growth and leaf ion content were measured in wheat (Triticum durum L. cv. HD 4502) exposed to steady- state salinities (1.6, 12.0 and 16.0 dS nr−1) for 8 weeks. Salinity reduced leaf area and number of tillers, and increased Na+ and Cl− concentrations in leaves. Leaf- to- leaf gradients of these ions were observed. The oldest leaf(More)

The flag and second leaves of wheat showed physiological and biochemical differences in the normal and water stressed plants. Although the flag leaf had lower enzyme activities in the control plants, in stressed plants it could continue nitrate assimilation better than the second and other leaves. The flag leaf also exhibited a higher tendency to resume(More)
The present study explores morphological, genetic and phytochemical composition of Bunium persicum populations belonging to high altitudinal areas of Indian Himalayan region. In total, 23 morphological traits (13 quantitative and 10 qualitative traits) and 32 Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA primers were employed to infer the population structure of the(More)
Plants of two wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars differing in salt tolerance were grown in sand with nutrient solutions. 35-d-old plants were subjected to 5 levels of salinity created by adding NaCl, CaCl2 and Na2SO4. Growth reduction caused by salinity was accompanied by increased Na+ and Cl- concentrations, Na+/K+ ratio, and decreased concentration of(More)
