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 […]

Phytochemical Analysis and In-vitro Antioxidant and cytotoxic activity of Aerial parts of Cestrum aurantiacum and Solanum mauritianum (Solanaceae weeds of Niligiris)

Abstract To investigate the microscopical, Phytochemical (Qualitative and Quantitative) and In-vitro antioxidant studies of hydro alcohol (70%), Aqueous, Ethyl acetate, Chloroform, Pet – ether and total saponin fractions of aerial parts of Cestrum aurantiacum (C.aurantiacum) and Solanum mauritianum (S. mauritianum). The Phytochemical quantification of the total phenolic, flavanoid and alkaloid contents were estimated using gallic […]
