Premixed methane-air mixture is introduced at the center of two parallel circular quartz plates separated by a millimeter scale distance (<or= 5mm). Two plates are heated with an external heater to create a positive temperature gradient condition along the flow direction. The combustion characteristics of lean methane-air mixtures are investigated at(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to determine whether supplementation of resveratrol, a stilbenoid antioxidant with therapeutic significance, influences goat (Capra hircus) oocyte maturation and subsequent embryonic development and expression of apoptosis and early embryonic development-related genes. METHODS Five different concentrations of(More)
The aim of our study was to optimize growth and induction parameters, for expression and large scale purification of functionally active buffalo interferon tau, and to study its possible impact on in vitro blastocyst development. The buffalo interferon-tau gene (BuIFN-T1) bearing gene bank accession No. JX481984, with signal sequence, was obtained through(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to establish the buffalo mammary epithelial cell line (BuMEC) and characterize its mammary specific functions. METHODOLOGY Buffalo mammary tissue collected from the slaughter house was processed enzymatically to obtain a heterogenous population of cells containing both epithelial and fibroblasts cells. Epithelial(More)
Keywords: Hydrogen storage Heat exchanger High-pressure metal hydride a b s t r a c t This paper discusses the challenges of using hydrogen fuel cells to power light-duty vehicles. Storing sufficient amounts of hydrogen to cover adequate travel distances before refueling is one of the more pressing challenges, and different materials have been recommended(More)
Mammary gland is made up of a branching network of ducts that end in alveoli. Terminally differentiated mammary epithelial cells (MECs) constitute the innermost layer of aveoli. They are milk-secreting cuboidal cells that secrete milk proteins during lactation. Little is known about the expression profile of proteins in the metabolically active MECs during(More)
Mammary gland is made up of a branching network of ducts that end with alveoli which surrounds the lumen. These alveolar mammary epithelial cells (MEC) reflect the milk producing ability of farm animals. In this study, we have used 2D-DIGE and mass spectrometry to identify the protein changes in MEC during immediate early, peak and late stages of lactation(More)
Urine is a non-invasive source of biological fluid, which reflects the physiological status of the mammals. We have profiled the cow urinary proteome and analyzed its functional significance. The urine collected from three healthy cows was concentrated by diafiltration (DF) followed by protein extraction using three methods, namely methanol, acetone, and(More)
UNLABELLED Mammary gland is an exocrine and sebaceous gland made up of branching network of ducts that end in alveoli. Milk is synthesized in the alveoli and secreted into alveolar lumen. Mammary gland represents an ideal system for the study of organogenesis that undergoes successive cycles of pregnancy, lactation and involution. To gain insights on the(More)
