Defects in neural tube formation are among the most common malformations leading to infant mortality. Although numerous genetic loci appear to contribute to the defects observed in humans and in animal model systems, few of the genes involved have been characterized at the molecular level. Mice lacking the p53 tumour suppressor gene are predisposed to(More)
Fibroblasts prepared from retinoblastoma (Rb) gene-negative mouse embryos exhibit a shorter G1 phase of the growth cycle and smaller size than wild-type cells. In addition, the mutant cells are no longer inhibited by low levels of cycloheximide at any point in G1 but do remain sensitive to serum withdrawal until late in G1. Certain cell cycle-regulated(More)
Pharmacognostical investigations were carried out on the Erythrina indica leaves, followed by phytochemical investigation. On the methanolic extract of leaves, TLC was performed and indole alkaloids were identified with selected solvent system. The UV analysis was also performed on the components confirming the presence of the indole nucleus.(More)
