Generation of potential barcodes for an important medicinal plant Vitex negundo var. purpurescens Sivar and Moldenke
Kalaiwani Dhanasekaran and Flora Rayappan

Traditional folk medicine has gained a lot of importance in recent times. Owing to rich herbal flora in India, medicinal plants have become a major source of natural drugs. New molecular approaches towards identifying these medicinal plants is becoming inevitable. In this regard, DNA bar coding of the most reputed plastid coding matK gene, present in the chloroplast and non-coding trnH-psbA spacer region are considered as a gold standard tool for Angiosperm identification. In this study,...

Impact of amoxicillin on physiological parameters of silkworm Bombyx mori (L.) (lepidoptera: bombycidae) in relation to...
Thilagavathi, G., Selvisabhanayakam, Ganesh Prabu, P. and Mathivanan, V.

The silkworm, Bombyx mori is a “biological machine”, which biosynthesize the mulberry leaf into a protenacious fiber (silk) is in recent years considered as a persuasive bioreactor for the production of pharmaceutically important biomolecule either using silkworm larvae. Besides, to examine the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetic properties of herbal medicines/drugs. B. mori is in use due to similar metabolic pathways as in mammals and applicable for evaluation of therapeutic effect of...

Corrosion inhibition of new class of substituted benzotriazoles on the brass-mm55 in artificial sea water
Jayasree, A. C. and Ravichandran, R.

The effect of novel corrosion inhibitors, new class of substituted benzotriazoles namely 2-(1H-benzotriazol-1-yl) phenylacetohydrazides (BTPH), 2-(1H-benzotriazol-1-yl) acetopyrazolidine dione (BTAP) on the corrosion of a brass- mm55 in artificial sea water has been investigated by weight-loss, polarization, electrochemical impedance, Potentiostatic current transient, cyclic voltammetry and solution analysis techniques. Polarization studies clearly indicated that the benzotriazole...

Fatty acids compositions and profiles in traditional sun- dried nile fish in Sudan
Elagba H. A. Mohamed and Jamal N. AL-Sabahi

This study was designed to clarify the content of lipid classes and the fatty acid composition of the traditional sun- dried Nile fish (Kajaike) in Sudan namely: Lates niloticus, Tetraodon lineatus, Heterotis niloticus, Mormyrus niloticus, Clarias lazera and Protopterus annectens. Saturated Fatty Acids (SFA) formed 16.4% - 67%, highest in P. annectens and least in C. lazera, dominated by palmitic and stearic acids. Monounsaturated Fatty Acids (MUFA) formed 21.3% - 34.4%, dominated by oleic...

Animal diversity of panna tiger reserve panna (M.P.)
Dr. Mukesh Kumar Napit and Dr. Saraf, D. K.

Wild life conservation includes all human efforts to preserve wild animals from extinction. It involves the protection and wise management of wild species and their environment. Some species have become extinct due to natural causes but the greatest danger to wild life result from human activities. Thus we ourselves have created this need for wild life conservation. The progress of man throughout has been beneficial for the human race but it is the wild that has suffered through the years....

The nutrient contents of traditional sun- dried nile fish in Sudan
Elagba H. A. Mohamed

The chemical compositions gross energy and mineral contents were determined for sun dried fish: Lates niloticus, Tetraodon lineatus, Heterotis niloticus, Mormyrus niloticus, Clarias lazera and Protopterus annectens. Protein value of over 70g/100g was recorded for the analyzed fish except C. lazera which contained (59.9±1.4g/100g). The range of lipid content was (2±0.1-16.6±0.8g/100g), with the highest values in C. lazera and M. niloticus. The range of ash was (3.9±0.1-13.6±0.9g/100g), high...

Assessment of subsurface design criteria using sand tank
Mohammad, F. S. and Shereif H. Mahmoud

Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI) is the application of drip irrigation technology below the ground surface. The use of Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI) technology in Saudi Arabia may well be the future of irrigation in the coming years. The materials being used today in subsurface drip irrigation come in three basic configurations: hard hose, drip tape, and porous tubing. Design criteria of SDI system investigated using analogue model i.e. a simulation sand tank. These criteria include...

Buhroo Zafar, Shabir A. Wani, Malik, M. A. and Ganai, M. A.

The inherent immune mechanism exhibited by insects is the primary basis for their resistance to various diseases. During their evolution, insects developed a powerful and effective immune system to combat a wide variety of pathogens which had lead them to become the most diverse and successful organisms on earth. Insects posses innate immunity which is characterized by immune reactions against invading pathogens through their cellular and humoral responses. The mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori...
