BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has infected several million individuals in India. Various interventions have been implemented for early detection and prevention of transmission of HIV infection. This has progressively changed the clinical profile of HIV infected individuals and this study documents the clinical presentation of(More)
Lysosomal and microsomal acid phosphatase activity was estimated in midgut tissue of silkworm larvae, Bombyx mori L. (Lepidoptera: Bombycidae), after induced oxidative stress by D-galactose. The larvae were simultaneously were treated with ethanolic extracts of Bacopa monniera and Lactuca sativa to study their antioxidant properties. Lipid peroxidation and(More)
Observations on the female reproductive system in Papilio polytes polytes L. were carried out in the 5th instar larvae and 3–4 day old virgin female. They were dissected in insect Ringer solution and were fixed in Bouin’s fluid. The tissues were routinely processed and cut at 5–7 μ and doubly stained in haematoxylin and eosin. The ovaries are the only(More)
Flexure mechanisms are a designer's delight. Except for the limits of elasticity, flexures present few other boundaries as far as applications are concerned. Flexures have been used as bearings to provide smooth and guided motion. For example in precision motion stages; as springs to provide preload, for example in the brushes of a DC motor or a camera lens(More)
The lectin isolated from mature seeds of Cicer arietinum (CAL) agglutinates pronase-treated rabbit and human erythrocytes and its haemagglutination activity is inhibited by fetuin and desialated fetuin but not by simple monosaccharides or oligosaccharides. The purified lectin is a dimer of molecular weight 43,000 Da composed of two identical subunits (MW(More)
