Effect of Plant Growth regulators on Morphological, Physiological and Biochemical parameters of Soybean (Glycine max l. Merrill)

Abstract Plant growth and developmental processes are very much regulated by certain chemical substances called Growth regulators. Growth regulators are known to improve the physiological efficiency including photosynthetic ability and can enhance the effective partitioning of accumulates from source and sink in the field crops. The present study was conceptualized and executed with the prime […]

Production and purification of the Tyrosinase enzyme from Soil bacteria

Abstract Tyrosinases are a group of bifunctional enzymes that are involved in the hydroxylation of mono phenols to o-diphenols. These enzymes have their potential applications in several domains like Biosensors, biocatalysis in several pathways, and production of L-DOPA from tyrosine. Detection and removal of phenolic compounds from wastewater also involves the use of tyrosinases. In […]

Combining ability and gene action studies for yield and yield contributing traits in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.)

Abstract Eight diverse lines of tomato were crossed with three testers in line x tester mating fashion to study combining ability effects and gene action for yield and yield contributing traits. The analysis of variance revealed that the variance due to line x tester effects were highly significant for all the traits under study. The […]

Effect of integrated nitrogen management on soil available nutrients, nutrient uptake and enzyme activity of soil at harvest of safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.)

Abstract A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2009 -10 on sandy loam soil at Student’s Farm, College of Agriculture, Rajendranagar, Acharya N.G Ranga Agricultural University, Hyderabad, A.P, India to study the effect of organic manures in combination with inorganic nitrogen fertilizer on soil available nutrients status, nutrient uptake and enzymes ( urease and dehydrogenase) […]

Mutation Annotation, Peptide Designing and Targeting of V 383 Position in GLUT4, an Important Enzyme Involved in Glucose Metabolism

Abstract Diabetes mellitus a well known disorder of current era has several direct and indirect causes for its onset. Glucose transporter type 4, also known as GLUT4, is a protein encoded by the GLUT4gene which is an insulin-regulated glucose transporter involved in insulin-regulated glucose transport into the cell. This protein is expressed primarily in muscle […]

In-silico analysis and homology modeling of Antifreeze protein type 1, Choline dehydrogenase and Betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase of an extreme psychrophile: Psychromonas ingrahamii 37

Abstract Antifreeze proteins (AFPs) are the class of polypeptides, facilitating cold-adaptation in psychrophilic organisms, whereas, Choline dehydrogenase (CHDH), and Betaine-aldehyde dehydrogenase (BADH) catalyze the production of a common osmoprotectant, glycine betaine, which owes for organism’s freeze tolerance as well. The present Bioinformatics study selects three proteins: type 1 AFP, CHDH, and BADH from an extreme […]

Effect of Various INM Practices on Yield, Urease and Dehydrogenase activity in Safflower

Abstract A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of organic manures in combination with inorganic nitrogen fertilizer on activity of urease and dehydrogenase and yield on safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) during rabi season 2009-10 at Students’ Farm of College of Agriculture, Rajendranagar, Acharya N. G. Ranga Agricultural University. Among the different combinations tried, […]
