Common carp (Cyprinus carpio) is a widely cultivated freshwater fish for human consumption, while koi carp, is a farmed colored sub species of common carp used for ornamental purposes. Since 1998, both common carp and koi carp are severely affected by a viral disease called as Koi herpes virus disease (KHVD). This disease is caused by Koi herpes virus(More)
BACKGROUND Persistent cessation of all cerebral and brainstem function (brain death) is accepted in most countries as legal evidence of death. It is presumed that cardiac function will cease within a short time after brain death has occurred. In some countries, such as Kuwait, tradition and practice discourage application of the brain death criteria despite(More)
The present paper re-describes three known species of the tribe Agraeciini (Tettigonidae: Conocephalinae), as well as recording Palaeoagraecia brunnea Ingrisch, 1998 for the first time from India. These descriptions hold to be useful in the identification of Indian agraeciine species. The important morphological characters of the head, pronotum, cerci,(More)
The establishment and characterization of a continuous cell line from the thymus of air-breathing fish Channa striatus are described. The cell line, designated C. striatus thymus (CST), has been subcultured over 71 times and shows optimal growth at 28°C in Leibovitz’s-15 (L-15) medium supplemented with 20% fetal bovine serum. The CST cells exhibited low(More)
Cyprinus carpio koi fin (CCKF) cell line was established and characterized from the caudal fin tissue of ornamental common carp, C. carpio koi. This cell line has been maintained in L-15 medium supplemented with 15% foetal bovine serum (FBS) and subcultured more than 52 times over a period of 24 mo. The CCKF cell line consisted of epithelial cells and was(More)
Human brainstem auditory evoked responses (BAERs) are sensory evoked potentials that can be recorded within a few milliseconds following a transient acoustic stimulus (click signal). This paper suggests a novel technique to clearly demarcate normals and patients with complaints of vertigo and deafness by computing hitherto unused power spectral parameters(More)
