Role of potassium nutrition in improving growth, yield and quality of sugarcane- a review
Kumawat, P. D., Rajawat, B. S. and Rathod, A. D.

Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) is an important commercial crop and the sugar industry is the second largest agro-based industry in the country. It is mainly grown in tropical and sub-tropical region of India. Balanced nutrition is one of the critical components in augmenting crop production and among the nutrients; potassium is an important element contributing to production and quality of sugarcane. Application of potassium plays an important role in translocation of sugar in plants...

Skin impedance and myometry (enf and myoton): two instruments compared in acute and chronic somatic dysfunction
Bellomo, R.G., Barassi, G., Giannuzzo, G., Di Felice, P.A., Porto, D. and Saggini, R.

In rehabilitation medicine can be observed tissue alterations that go to join in specific disease states, and may be the first signal to decode a dysfunctional state and program the rehabilitation protocol. Somatic dysfunction present alternations of tone and tissue quality, the perception of pain at specific points during the evaluation, anatomical asymmetries and reductions in the ROM. The purpose of this study was to compare in a single-bind dysfunctional areas previously identified with...

Abundance or dominance: which is more justified to calculate importance value index (IVI) of plant species?
Bhadra A.K. and S.K. Pattanayak

Abundance and dominance are two aspects of the plant species diversity dynamics, often considered interchangeably together with frequency and density to estimate Importance Value Index (IVI). The importance of the use of abundance or dominance for IVI has been explored through an investigation of abundance-dominance directed species dynamics on Gandhamardan hill of western Odisha in the altitudinal range 340-960m. In total 232 plant species were documented. Large number of species have...

Comprehensive analysis of age related macula detection in digital retinal images
Shiny Priyadarshini, J. and Gladis, D.

Retinal disorder is one of the major leading problem for permanent blindness where retinal analysis plays a vital role in diagnosis of retinal diseases. This paper highlights a very simple and straight forward approach for the segmentation of macula from the digital retinal images. The macula is extracted and the diameter is calculated using the mathematical morphological operations and it is also compared with the clinically accepted macula diameter. The results of the present study clearly...

Socio economic importance of chilgoza pine forest of afghanistan: a survey based assessment
Mohammad Nasir Shalizi, and Safiullah Khurram

In Afghanistan, chilgoza pine is distributed in eastern and southeastern provinces. Chilgoza pine is the only edible pine species of the country. Pine nuts are an important non-timber forest product (NTFP). Chilgoza pine forests play significant role in the livelihood of communities. Local villagers harvest and roast the nuts for their own use or sell them to local markets. Chilgoza pine nuts are traded worldwide and used raw, roasted or mixed with other ingredients. This study was intended...

Study on the binding behavior of bovine serum albumin (BSA) and human serum albumin (HSA) with ceftriaxone: spectroscopic investigations
Abu Teir, M.M. and Darwish, S. M.

The mechanism of the interaction between bovine serum albumin (BSA) and ceftriaxone was studied employing fluorescence, and circular dichroism (CD) spectral methods. The intrinsic fluorescence of BSA and HSA was quenched by ceftriaxone in a static quenching mode, which was authenticated by Stern-Volmercalculations. The binding constant was obtained, which indicated a spontaneous and hydrophobic interaction between ceftriaxone with BSA and ceftriaxone with HSA with ceftriaxone. The present...

Dr. K. Saraswathi Gopal and Dr. M. Shanmuga Sundaram

Oral cavity and the lesions associated with oral cavity sometimes plays a key role in diagnosis of systemic disorders or act as an important examination site for early lesion that precedes due to any systemic disorders. Oral manifestations due to nutritional deficiency, GIT disorders, metabolic disorders, haematological disorders, rheumatological disorders, dermatological diseases, renal diseases and autoimmune disorders are common. Hence examination of oral cavity with through knowledge to...

Lipotoxicity in obesity: benefit of olive oil
Saad, E., Sbeit, W., Arraf, L., Barhoum, M. and Assy, N.

The clinical implication of Lipotoxicity in obesity derives primarily from its potential to progress to insulin resistance, endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerosis. Olive oil rich diet decrease accumulation of triglyceride in the liver, improved postprandial triglyceride levels, improve glucose and GLP-1 response in insulin resistant subjects, and up regulate GLUT-2 expression in the liver. The exact molecular mechanism is unknown but, decreasing NFkB activation, decreasing LDL oxidation...
