The differentially expressed in adenocarcinoma of the lung (DAL-1) gene, which shares significant homology with members of the 4.1/ezrin/radixin/moesin/neurofibromatosis 2 (ERM/NF2) protein family, has previously been shown to suppress growth in lung cancer cell lines. This gene localizes to chromosome band 18p11.3, which undergoes loss of heterozygosity(More)
DAL-1 (differentially expressed in adenocarcinoma of the lung)/4.1B is a tumor suppressor gene on human chromosome 18p11.3 whose expression is lost in >50% of primary non-small-cell lung carcinomas. Based on sequence similarity, DAL-1/4.1B has been assigned to the Protein 4.1 superfamily whose members interact with plasma membrane proteins through their(More)
The Protein 4.1 family contains at least two members that function as tumour suppressors, the neurofibromatosis 2 gene product merlin and the recently identified differentially expressed in adenocarcinoma of the lung (DAL-1)/Protein 4.1B molecule. DAL-1/Protein 4.1B loss is observed in a variety of tumours, including breast and lung cancers as well as(More)
Population-based variations in frequency and distribution of dystrophin gene deletions have been recognized in Duchenne/Becker (DMD/BMD) muscular dystrophy patients. In the present study, DNA samples from 121 unrelated DMD/BMD patients from North India were analyzed for deletional studies with multiplex PCR and Southern hybridization. A total of 88 (73%)(More)
Modification of low density lipoprotein by nonenzymic glycosylation resulted in decreased receptor-mediated lipoprotein catabolism. Guggulsterone treatment caused significant increase in binding of [125I] low density lipoprotein as well as [125I] glycosylated low density lipoprotein. Scatchard plot analysis of the binding activity revealed that under the(More)
OBJECTIVE Prenatal diagnosis was required in two unrelated families with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) patients who lacked expression of p47(phox) protein; thus a search for mutations in NCF1 was undertaken. METHODS Gene scanning was applied to establish the relative number of coding and pseudo-NCF1 genes. PCRs specific for coding NCF1 cDNA and(More)
We developed a highly sensitive and specific LAMP assay for Escherichia coli. It does not require DNA extraction and can detect as few as 10 copies. It detected all 36 of 36 E. coli isolates and all 22 urine samples (out of 89 samples tested) that had E. coli. This assay is rapid, low in cost, and simple to perform.
The utility of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) for categorizing different types of gallbladder stone has been demonstrated by analyzing their major and minor constituents. LIBS spectra of three types of gallstone have been recorded in the 200-900 nm spectral region. Calcium is found to be the major element in all types of gallbladder stone. The(More)
In vertebrate retina interneuronal communication through gap junctions is involved in light adaptation and in the transfer of visual information from the rod pathway to the cone pathway. Reports over the last two decades have indicated that these gap junctions are regulated by cyclic nucleotide-dependent protein kinases suggesting that the gap junction(More)
Pleurotus ostreatus (MTCC142) was cultivated on three different agro wastes viz: Wheat straw, Soybean straw and Chick pea straw. Total antioxidant, reducing power and total phenolic content effect of the extracts was determined by 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) method and Folin-Ciocalteu method. The aqueous extract of P.ostreatus cultivated on soybean(More)
