IN-SILICO ANALYSIS AND HOMOLOGY MODELING OF ANTIOXIDANT PROTEINS OF ORYZA SATIVA SUBSP. JAPONICA (RICE)
Rice is much revered oriental food and the most important tropical cereal crop. It is the staple food of about half the human race and is often the main source of calories and the principal food of many millions of people. Health benefits of rice include providing fast and instant energy, stabilizing blood sugar levels and providing essential source of vitamin B1 to human body. In this study...
MODULATION OF 10 GHZ MICROWAVES INDUCED BIOCHEMICAL CHANGES IN DIFFERENT ORGANS OF SWISS ALBINO MICE BY PRUNUS DOMESTICA FRUIT EXTRACT
For the present study thirty male Swiss albino mice were selected from an inbred colony. They were divided into three groups consisting of ten mice in each group. Group I: Sham exposed, Group II: 10 GHz MW (microwave) exposed, Group III: PDE (Prunus domestica extract) +MW exposed. After 30 days of treatment the animals were sacrificed to study alterations in body weights and biochemical parameters...
Microwave assisted organic synthesis (MAOS) has emerged as frontier in pharmaceutical research for synthesis of newer drugs and implementing GREEN chemistry. Arylacetamides are pharmaceutically interesting as they show various biological activities such as analgesic, local anesthetic, antiarthritic, antiarrhythmic activities, etc. In arylacetamides the nature of aromatic ring and its substituent i...
Increasing use of bioinformatics made very easy to researchers in biological and drug discovery field. Bioinformatics is involved at each and every step of drug discovery to drug development. The first step of the drug discovery is a question about disease and the treatment by drugs and whenever term drug comes, means something has to be given and the second question arises the given compound is d...
A SIMPLE AND SENSITIVE RP-HPLC METHOD FOR TRACE-LEVEL QUANTIFICATION OF METHYL VINYL KETONE, A POTENTIAL GENOTOXIC IMPURITY, IN DRUG SUBSTANCES
An HPLC method was developed with the aim of quantifying the levels of Methyl Vinyl Ketone (MVK), a Potential Genotoxic Impurity (PGI), in Ivabradine HCl. A limit level concentration of 0.5 ppm for MVK was calculated by applying the concept of Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC). The developed HPLC method employs a Phenyl analytical column (150 mm х 4.6 mm, 3.5 μ), 5-μL injection volume, m...
The marine environment is a rich source of both biological and chemical diversity. This diversity has been the source of unique chemical compounds with potential for drug development. In recent years, a significant number of novel metabolites with potent pharmacological properties have been discovered from the marine organisms. Specifically, the Red Sea is a natural source of these bioactive compo...
DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC METHOD FOR THE ESTIMATION OF RITONAVIR IN TABLET DOSAGE FORM
A simple, precise, accurate and repeatable method for bulk and tablet dosage form of Ritonavir have been developed using spectrophotometric method. Differential spectrophotometric method was used. The developed method was validated according to ICH (Q2R1) guidelines and was found to be accurate, precise and specific. Amplitude difference was taken at absorbance maxima at 246 nm and absorbance mini...
A STUDY ON THE ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTY OF THE COTTON FABRIC IMPARTED WITH MICHAELIA CHAMPACA LEAF EXTRACT LOADED NANOPARTICLES
In the present work ethanol, methanol, ethyl acetate, chloroform and benzene extract of the Michaelia champaca leaves were screened for their antimicrobial activity. The ethanolic extracts of M. champaca leaves were proved to have the maximum antimicrobial activity; thus the ethanolic leaf extract was selected and the nanoparticles were synthesized using ionic gelification method. The nanopartic...
Danio rerio is one of the best model organisms to study various kinds of disorders. Their genome is fully sequenced and they possess easily detectable developmental properties. The development of their embryo is quite rapid. This is important as the embryos are formed by external fertilization, are large and transparent. Abortifacient is a substance that induces abortion. It can be used in the for...
The use of medicinal plants and preparations derived from them as dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, functional foods and herbal medicinal products has become more widely accepted in developing countries. Therefore, it is important to evaluate the adverse effects of these plants and their preparations. The objective of this study was to evaluate the safety of the methanol extracts Plumeria acumi...
