Vascular effects of apelin in vivo in man.
Although having no apparent effect on venous tone, apelin causes nitric oxide-dependent arterial vasodilation in vivo in man and merits further clinical investigation to determine its role in cardiovascular homeostasis. Expand
Role of Nutrients in Controlling the Plant Diseases in Sustainable Agriculture
The importance of sustainable agriculture can be understood as an ecosystem approach toward the integrated agricultural management practices. It is capable of enhancing soil and environmental qualityExpand
Risk factors and mechanisms of anaphylactoid reactions to acetylcysteine in acetaminophen overdose
Acetaminophen is protective against adverse effects of NAC, and mechanisms by which acetaminophen might lessen histamine release require further attention. Expand
Micropropagation Technology of Bambusa bambos through Shoot Proliferation
A tissue culture technology is developed for large scale multiplication of Bambusa bambos which is discussed and will play a vital role in the domestic economy. Expand
Design of antibiotic containing hydrogel wound dressings: biomedical properties and histological study of wound healing.
Results of biomedical properties indicated that hydrogel films are non-thrombogenic, non-haemolytic, antioxidant and mucoadhesive in nature, and are permeable to oxygen and moisture while impermeable to micro-organisms. Expand
Therapeutic potential of N-acetylcysteine as an antiplatelet agent in patients with type-2 diabetes
It is suggested that NAC reduces thrombotic propensity in type-2 diabetes patients by increasing platelet antioxidant status as a result of elevated GSH synthesis, thereby lowering platelet-derived ROS and increasing bioavailability of protective NO in a narrow therapeutic range. Expand
Sphingolipid Biosynthetic Pathway Genes FEN1 and SUR4 Modulate Amphotericin B Resistance
Results indicate that sphingolipids modulate AmB resistance, with implications for mechanisms underlying AmB action and resistance. Expand
Effects of Acute and Chronic Lead Exposure on Kidney Lipid Peroxidation and Antioxidant Enzyme Activities in BALB-C Mice (Mus Musculus)
Extensive and unmonitored use of lead in developing and industrialised countries is posing a serious threat to human health. Prolonged exposure of a sub-lethal dose of this toxicant is closelyExpand
Evaluation of the Antioxidant Properties of N-acetylcysteine in Human Platelets: Prerequisite for Bioconversion to Glutathione for Antioxidant and Antiplatelet Activity
The results suggest that NAC might be an effective antiplatelet agent in conditions where increased oxidative stress contributes to heightened risk of thrombosis but only if the intraplatelet machinery to convert it to GSH is functional. Expand
Plasma Membrane Proteolipid 3 Protein Modulates Amphotericin B Resistance through Sphingolipid Biosynthetic Pathway
It was found that ergosterol content and cell wall integrity are not related to modulation of AmB resistance by PMP3, and AmB sensitivity of strains deleted in PMP2 can be suppressed by the addition of phytosphingosine, a sphingolipid pathway intermediate, confirming the importance of this pathway in modulation ofAmB Resistance by PMB3.
