Animals with severe spinal traumas show paraplegic syndrome and various somatic and autonomic dysfunctions. Of the various dysfunctions those related to hypothermia, bladder problems, and autophagia are of serious nature. The condition of animals with these complications deteriorates rapidly, and the animals are sacrificed for histological and pathological(More)
Bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria) belongs to the family Cucurbitaceae, which comprises about 118 genera and 825 species. It is an important vegetable crop of India, and its production is influenced by a number of factors viz., environmental, nutritional, cultural operation and use of plant growth regulators. Since, bottle gourd belongs to a medicinal(More)
The present study was designed to test the immunostimulatory efficacy of poly-β hydroxybutyrate-hydroxyvalerate (PHB-HV) extracted from Bacillus thuringiensis B.t.A102 on the immune system of Oreochromis mossambicus. Fish were fed with 0%, 1%, 3% or 5% PHB-HV supplemented feed and were bled at regular intervals of 5 days. The specific immune response was(More)
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are natural polyesters produced by microbes, a potential alternative to synthetic plastics. Various methods ranging from gravimetry to spectrophotometry are routinely used for qualitative analysis of extracted PHA. There is a great need for accurate quantification of intracellular PHA during bioprocess. Hence, the present study(More)
Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) is a promising polymer for various biomedical applications. There is a high need to improve the production rate to achieve end use. When a cost-effective production was carried out with cheaper agricultural residues like molasses, traces of toxins were incorporated into the polymer, which makes it unfit for biomedical(More)
The immunostimulatory effect of phospholipopeptide biosurfactant from Staphylococcus hominis (GenBank Accession No: KJ564272) was assessed with Oreochromis mossambicus. The non-specific (serum lysozyme activity, serum antiprotease activity, serum peroxidase activity and serum bactericidal activity), specific (bacterial agglutination assay) immune responses(More)
