Centella asiatica: Medicinal importance with special emphasis on its role in cancer and neuroprotection

Centella asiatica is an important medicinal herb and being utilized traditionally for wound healing, asthma, cough etc. Several studies have emphasized the phytocompounds obtained such as Asiatic acid, and madecosside have potential ...

On the applications of machine learning algorithms to predict the in-hospital mortality rate among heart failure patients

With the enhancement of computational power and modern hardware, machine learning(ML) algorithms have been widely used in almost every sector these days. In modern healthcare systems, tons of data are generated ...

Cadmium-induced alterations in sulphur containing defense compounds (SODC), protease activity, and ultra-structure of mitochondrion and chloroplast in Brassica juncea L. genotypes differing in Cd-sensitivity

Cadmium contamination in agricultural soils is an ongoing process and its impact on quality and quantity of cash crops is irreparable. It interferes with the metabolism of most versatile element of organisms (sulphur) after being incorporation ...

Durum wheat breeding before and after 1970 in Tunisia: Changes in yield components and quality attributes

This study highlights the changes in yield components and major quality traits of eighteen rain-fed Tunisian durum wheat genotypes, cultivated during the 20 century. The germplasm, which is of fundamental importance for the improvement of any species, was divided ...

Gossypol: An Effective Anti Cancer Drug Against Molecular Target of Bcl-2 Protein Family in Human Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is a malignant tumor of prostate gland in males - remaining subclinical for many years, but later, can metastasize and spread to surrounding tissues and other crucial body parts. Elevated levels of blood prostate specific antigen (PSA) and routine digital rectal examination (DRE) may lead to early diagnosis of prostate cancer. Organ confined and locally advanced prostate cancer can be treated with surgical ...

Microbial Populations in Sweet Sorghum Juice during Fermentation

The specific objective of this study was to investigate the effect of different levels of yeast inoculation and different times of yeast inoculation on the microbial populations and ethanol yield in sweet sorghum juice. Targeted microorganisms included Total Plate Count, lactic acid bacteria, coliforms, E. coli and yeast. Sweet sorghum was pressed with a small-scale roller ...

Rapid Detection of Ebola Viruses Causing Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever by Recombinase- Aid Amplification

In this study, we established a rapid and accurate method for the detection of Ebola virus (EBOV) by a novel technology of isothermal amplification (recombinase-aid amplification, RAA). The specific primers and TaqMan probe used in the real-time RT-RAA were designed based on the conservative ...

Molecular Diagnosis in Peri-Implantitis

Implantology today is one of the disciplines that arouse greater interest among professionals of Odontology and Stomatology due to the great benefits to the patient. ...

Effect of Terminalia Arjuna against Arsenic-Induced Renal Toxicity in Mice

Arsenic is an established toxin to both renal and neuronal system. It induces oxidative stress through free radical formation within the renal system. Clinical effects of arsenic toxicity depend on chronicity. Acute renal damages are very common patho-physiological disturbances that are caused by arsenic. The present study is conducted to evaluate the protective ...

Identification of Potential Vaccine Candidates from Rickettsia Species: A Reverse Vaccinology Approach

Rickettsiosis is a group of diseases caused by many intracellular bacteria of the genus Rickettsia. These bacteria are transmitted by ticks, fleas, lice and mites. The public health impact of rickettsiosis has been suspected to be quite high worldwide. However, there is no specific drug or vaccine available for these diseases. Many doctors recommend the antibiotic, doxycycline for this bacterial infection. Many scientists are engaged in vaccine development. ...

Successful Amplification of DNA Using Recombinase-Aided Amplification (RAA) and its Application to Seven Horticultural Crops

The amplification of nucleic acid is essential for many analyses requiring DNA. Current techniques require sophisticated equipment or complex experimental procedures whose implementation may be limited to outsourcing to other laboratories, or a continuous electricity supply that is expensive and inaccessible ...

Cross Molecular Recognition–An Approach for New Strategy for Drug Development

The association of medicinal plants and their therapeutic action is an interested subject which reflects the close relation of genomics and proteomics and DNA sequences among different biological systems. Since the early ancient era, human health and therapy has been supported by plants through the action of certain phyto chemical molecules. Some of these phyto chemical share their therapeutic action in both plants and human, including ...

Palynological Studies of Genus Draba L. (Brassicaceae) From Pakistan

Draba L. is considered taxonomically the most difficult and important genus of family Brassicaceae. Keeping in mind the importance of the taxon, palynological studies of nineteen species of Draba from Pakistan was carried out using light and electron microscopy. Despite nearly half a century of research, the systematic relationships among species in the genus Draba remain unresolved. In this study we analyzed pollen morphology ...

The New Age, the New Cytogenetics

Cytogenomics arises from the integration of classical molecular cytogenetics and the new technologies available to study chromosome biology [1]. The new sequencing technologies, the array-based analysis of genomic diversity, the broader application of chromatin immuno-precipitation, and the use of chromosome conformation capture technologies, have contributed ...

On Time Lag During Formation of Methyl Phenyl-O-Anisylphosphine and Methylcyclohexyl- O-Anizylphosphine Species: Kinetic Analysis of Multiple Reactions in Series and in Series-Parallel Fashion

The scheme of reactions underwent during the Hoffman-La- Rouche L Dopa process by 6 species appears to be reactions in series as shown in Figure 1.0. The scheme of reactions during preparation of CAMP and DiPAMP phosphines from methyl ester via series-parallel reactions of 6 species is shown in Figure 2.0. The kinetic rate expressions for the reactions ...
