The effect of medium composition and initial glucose concentration on production of hEGF by recombinant E. coli cells was investigated. Optimum hEGF production was observed in a yeast extract/acid hydrolysed casein/salts media containing an initial glucose concentration of 10 g.l-1. A maximum hEGF titer of 250 mg.l-1 was obtained in this medium after 32 h(More)
Glutathione S-transferase activity was determined in the lepidopteran insect species,Achaea janata, during larval, pupal and adult stages following treatment with sublethal and lethal doses of fenitrothion. Both doses of insecticide produced significant induction of enzyme activity. The rate of induction of enzyme activity was not significantly different in(More)
Phosphatidylinositol kinase (PI kinase) and phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate kinase (PIP kinase) activities in an insect cell line (Md 66) were studied by measuring the incorporation of 32P from [gamma-32P] ATP into phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PIP) and phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) respectively. The apparent Km values of(More)
Flight muscles of male moth, B. mori seem to utilize carbohydrate preferentially as a source of energy for all its acrobatic movements during the search for female moth. Depletion of triacylglycerol from flight muscles without affecting its level from fat body suggests that this lipid fraction serves as a source of energy in flight muscles during(More)
A commercial lipase preparation from Rhizopus niveus was used to concentrate the omega-3 fatty acid, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) component in fish oil. The DHA content of cod-liver oil was 9.64% (w/w) of total fatty acids. Enzymatic digestion conditions were established which produced a DHA content in the monoglycerides fraction of 29.17% (w/w) of total(More)
