Contextualizing Alternative Energy Usage *Modhurika

Abstract “The world has enough for everyone’s need but not for everyone’s greed”. – M.K Gandhi With the concern of global warming increasing with every passing day, ‘alternative fuels’ is an area, which is the most explored in recent times. Governments throughout the world are seeking alternative technologies to reduce their reliance on fossil fuel […]

In-Silico Drug Design through Protein-Ligand Interaction Studies of Snake Venom Peptides

Abstract Toxins have evolved in plants, animals and microbes multiple times as part of defensive and/or prey capture strategies. Peptide toxins are usually found in animal venom. Most venom comprises a highly complex mixture of peptides, often with diverse and selective pharmacology. The source of peptide is specifically snake venom which is usually neurotoxins. We […]

Conservation of Curcuma caesia by in vitro techniques

Abstract This study was conducted to develop an efficient protocol for mass propagation of Curcuma caesia L. Explants from underground rhizomes were cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium and it is a slow propagating species. Multiplication and callus induction starting from the rhizome buds and shoot tips of Curcuma caesia in MS medium supplemented […]

Isolation and characterization of an extracellular lipase producing Bacillus Corynebacterium sp. from petroleum contaminated soils

Abstract The use of microorganisms as bioreactors has been the trend of the year. Lipase which is one of the most commonly used enzyme in food and textile industry is of high demand. The current work aims to use microbes as bioreactors to produce the required enzyme lipase in laboratory conditions. The organisms used for […]

Comparative Analysis of Some Algal Ferritins Belonging To Chlorophyta and Rhodophyta

Abstract Ferritin is the most important protein involved in the Iron metabolism and storage. Iron is an extremely important element whose function is involved in the oxygen transport and it participates in the electron transfer reactions and various redox potential reactions. Ferritin, the globular cytoplasmic protein is highly conserved and is involved in the regulation […]

Comparative estimation of Penicillin production by wild and UV irradiated mutant strains of Penicillium chrysogenum

Abstract Penicillin is one of the well known antibiotics that are produced by Penicillium species of Fungi. Due to the immense applicability of penicillin antibiotic in the field of medicine it has gained a very vital position in the industrial sector. It is used to treat several bacterial infections due to its innate antibacterial activity. […]

Removal of Direct Red Dye Using Neem Leaf Litter

Abstract The adsorption of Congo red (CR) onto carbon prepared from Neem leaf litter (NLLC) and Raw Neem Leaf Litter (RNLL) was investigated. The CR adsorption increased with an increase in pH of the CR solution in high acidic region and then decreased for NLLC, and for RNLL it slightly increased but rapidly decreased in […]

A Comparative Study on the Yield of DNA Extracted from Fresh & Condition Exposed Human Scalp Hair Samples

Abstract DNA profiling is a highly conclusive, informative procedure in identification of biological specimens. In the current study, Quantification of DNA was done to detect the concentration of DNA in the samples. Quantity of DNA was calculated by taking the absorbance of samples at 260 nm by Spectrophotometer. In total 100 samples of human scalp […]
