The population of India is extremely diverse comprising of more than 3,000 ethnic groups who still follow endogamy. Haemoglobinopathies are the commonest hereditary disorders in India and pose a major health problem. The data on the prevalence of β-thalassemias and other haemoglobinopathies in different caste/ethnic groups of India is scarce. Therefore the(More)
Powdery mildew caused by Erysiphe pisi D.C. is one of the most serious diseases that inflict heavy losses to pea crop world-wide. Identification of resistance sources and their incorporation into susceptible cultivars remains the most effective method of controlling the disease. The present study investigated the resistance phenotype, inheritance, and(More)
Two genotypes of mungbean differing in the leaf shape, K-851 (trifoliate) and a mutant (pentafoliate), were exposed to salinity (0, 2.5, 5, 10 dS m−1) for 3, 6 and 9 d at flowering stage (40 – 45 d after sowing) to see the effect of salinity on nodule functioning. In both the genotypes, osmotic potential (ψs) and relative water content (RWC) of nodules(More)
Objective. The increased use of antiretroviral therapy (ART) has reduced the morbidity and mortality associated with HIV, adversely leading to the emergence of HIV drug resistance (HIVDR). In this study we aim to evaluate the prevalence of HIVDR mutations in ART-naive HIV-1 infected patients from northern India. Design. Analysis was performed using Viroseq(More)
Salinity tolerance in rice is highly desirable to sustain production in areas rendered saline due to various reasons. It is a complex quantitative trait having different components, which can be dissected effectively by genome-wide association study (GWAS). Here, we implemented GWAS to identify loci controlling salinity tolerance in rice. A custom-designed(More)
Our objective was to investigate the association between the vitamin D receptor (VDR) allelic variants (Bsm I and Fok I) and nephrolithiasis in northern India. A total of 150 nephrolithiatic patients and 100 age and sex matched controls were enrolled for study. A 10 ml blood sample was obtained for biochemical analysis and DNA isolation. In addition, 24 h(More)
Anopheles fluviatilis andAn. minimus complexes, each comprising of at least three sibling species, are closely related and important malaria vectors in Oriental Region. RecentlyAn. fluviatilis species S, which is a highly efficient malaria vector in India, has been made conspecific withAn. minimus species C (senior synonym) on the basis of homology in 335(More)
This is a retrospective study documenting the use of tenecteplase in 41 cases of suspected or confirmed pulmonary embolism receiving in-hospital tenecteplase as per weight-adjusted dosing in addition to standard heparin and oral anticoagulant therapy. The presenting symptoms of dyspnoea, chest pain, hemoptysis and syncope were found in 40 (97.56%), 19(More)
Four strains (NL-1, NL-1n, NL-7 and NL-7n) of Bean common mosaic virus (BCMV) prevalent on common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) in Himachal Pradesh, a north-western Himalayan state of India were compared at the 3′ terminal region of the viral genome to elucidate variation and relationship among these strains. 3′ terminal region comprising of partial nuclear(More)
