This article presents a literature review of the applications of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). AHP is a multiple criteria decision-making tool that has been used in almost all the applications related with decision-making. Out of many different applications of AHP, this article covers a select few, which could be of wide interest to the researchers and(More)
The presence of certain metabolites has been observed to interfere with DNA isolation procedures and downstream reactions such as DNA restriction, amplification and cloning. The chemotypic heterogeneity among species may not permit optimal DNA yields with a single protocol, and thus, even closely related species may require different isolation protocols.(More)
Forty Candidate Plus Trees (CPTs) of Pongamia pinnata were selected based on the morphometric traits to identify suitable seed sources with high oil content and for production of quality seedlings for mass afforestation in different forestry and agroforestry programmes. Significant genetic variability and association were recorded among 40 CPTs for pod and(More)
Hairy root cultures of Catharanthus roseus var. Prabal were established by infecting the leaves with Agrobacterium rhizogenes agropine-type A4 strain. Two hundred and fifty independent root clones were evaluated for growth, morphology, number of integration of Ri T-DNA genes and alkaloid contents. On the basis of growth pattern, type of branching and number(More)
The rice weevil, Sitophilus oryzae L., adults were highly susceptible by contact to l-carvone, d-carvone, and dihydrocarvone when compared with the lesser grain borer, Rhyzopertha dominica F., adults and red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst.). Adults of R. dominica were more susceptible than the other species to fumigant vapors of l-carvone,(More)
Transgenic plants of rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium graveolens cv. Hemanti) have been produced from Agrobacterium rhizogenes (strains A4 and LBA9402) mediated hairy root cultures. Amongst the explants tested, leaves were most responsive followed by the petioles and internodal segments, respectively. The A4 strain performed better for all the three(More)
The effects of inoculation with vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) fungus Glomusfasciculatum on the root colonization, growth, essential oil yield and nutrient acquisition of three cultivars of menthol mint (Mentha arvensis); Kalka, Shivalik and Gomti, were studied under field conditions. The VAM inoculation significantly increased the root(More)
Improved Catharanthus roseus cultivars are required for high yields of vinblastine, vindoline and catharanthine and/or serpentine and ajmalicine, the pharmaceutical terpenoid indole alkaloids. An approach to derive them is to map QTL for terpenoid indole alkaloids yields, identify DNA markers tightly linked to the QTL and apply marker assisted selection.(More)
Pancreatic cancer remains a lethal malignancy with poor prognosis owing to therapeutic resistance, frequent recurrence and the absence of treatment strategies that specifically target the tumour and its supporting stroma. Deregulated cell-surface proteins drive neoplastic transformations and are envisioned to mediate crosstalk between the tumour and its(More)
Heat shock proteins (Hsp) are known to play major role in protection of cells from thermal stress. Nucleotide polymorphisms within the promoter of Hsp affect degree of expression and inducibility of Hsp mRNA. The present study aimed to investigate the effect of polymorphism within promoter region on the cellular expression of Hsp70.1 mRNA and association of(More)
