Molecular Mapping of High Iron and Zinc Rich Regions in Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Grains Using Microsatellite Markers

Abstract Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is a primary source of food for billions of people throughout the world, yet it contains insufficient levels of the key micronutrients iron, zinc and vitamin A to meet the daily dietary requirements. Biofortification of staple food crops has thus been considered a sustainable strategy to overcome the problem of […]

Evaluation of the Antibacterial Activity of Aegle Marmelos at different Concentrations and temperatures

Abstract Aegle marmelos (Bael plant) is one of the most common ayurvedic plant traditionally used in medicine for the treatment of infectious diseases. The present study was emphasized on the antibacterial activity of the Agale marmeols leaves extract on Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Klebsiella pneumonia, Pseudomonas aeuroginosa, Salmonella typhimurium, and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus […]

Analysis of RAS Subfamily involved in Cancer via in silico Approach and Designing of Potent Drug against Cancer

Abstract RAS subfamily belongs to a class of proteins called small GTPase, which are a group of hydrolase enzymes that can bind (‘on state’) and hydrolyze (‘off state’) guanosine triphosphate (GTP). Hence, RAS proteins act as binary molecular switches and play a consequential role in intracellular signal transduction which regulates processes such as actin cytoskeletal […]

Analysis and targeting of NRG1 protein via in-silico Drug Design approach (Structure based) for the treatment of Schizophrenia

Abstract Neuregulin-1 (NRG-1) is a gene that helps regulate synaptic plasticity and mutations in NRG-1 have been found in patients with schizophrenia. Researchers have found that the prefrontal cortex expresses much higher levels of NRG-1 in humans with schizophrenia. Researchers have found that the mice grown with over expression of NRG-1 had schizophrenia like symptoms […]

Pharmacogenomics in Diabetes Mellitus: Pathway to Personalized Medicine

Abstract Diabetes, growing global health burden is a Multifactorial, heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by deficiency or failure in maintaining normal glucose homeostasis. The prevalence of Diabetes is rising across the globe at an alarming rate with India and china facing the greatest challenges with worsening trend affecting younger age groups. Diabetes and its complications […]

Enhanced Growth in the Clonal Propagated Plants

Abstract Micro propagation has the potential to provide very high multiplication rates of selected true genotypes. It allows rapid production of high quality, disease free and uniform planting materials irrespective of weather or season. The paper highlights studies on the same, outlines potential of using single to multiple co-cultures combinations of microbe that were in […]
