The calcium release channel (CRC) from skeletal muscle is an unusually large tetrameric ion channel of the sarcoplasmic reticulum, and it is a major component of the triad junction, the site of excitation contraction coupling. The three-dimensional architecture of the CRC was determined from a random conical tilt series of images extracted from electron(More)
Intercropping of agricultural crops with woody species is an age-old practice in traditional farming systems in the tropics. Food production is the major aim of subsistence farmers with most of their farmland being allocated to food crops rather than to trees and shrubs. Due to increasing population and scarcity of productive lands that cannot sustain(More)
The extraction and spectrophotometric determination of vanadium (V) with oxine is investigated at higher acidities than described previously. Under these conditions, n-butanol and other alcohols are found to exert a synergic effect on the extraction of vanadium into benzene. In the presence of alcohol only a 6-fold ligand excess is needed for quantitative(More)
A linear quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) model is presented for modeling and predicting the α-glucosidase inhibitory activity. The model was produced by using the multiple linear regression (MLR) technique on a twenty one compound database that consists of newly discovered 2,4-thiazolidinediones. The major conclusion of this study is(More)
A field experiment was conducted on a sandy clay soil at Agricultural Research Station, Basanthpur, Medak district of Andhra Pradesh during the kharif seasons of 2009-'10 and 2010-'11 to study the variation in relative water content (RWC) of pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L) Mill Sp.) as influenced by plant densities and supplemental irrigation through drip.(More)
Fertilizer application in crop plants normally result in enhanced crop yields up to certain levels. Each of these major and minor nutrients have specific role in producing growth and yield enhancement in agricultural crops. However, the exact time and dose of fertilizer application in the given crop schedule is also of paramount importance for successfully(More)
Molecular docking studies was performed on a series of 1, 3, 5-Trisubstituted aryls as PPARδ agonists to understand drug receptor interactions in modern drug design. The docking simulation was applied to dock a set of representative compounds within the active site region of 2B50 using Molegro Virtual Docker v 4.0.0. For these compounds, the correlation(More)
