THE EFFECT OF NECA, CGS 21680, PSB 603 ON FATTY ACID TRANSPORT AND OXIDATION IN SKELETAL MUSCLE CELLS
Adenosine is a strong modulator of gene expression, which underpins some of its potential expected effects in skeletal muscle in terms of fatty acid metabolism. Accumulating evidence highlights a critical role for the adenosine system in the regulation of fatty acid metabolism and obesity. However, its molecular signaling role in fatty acid transport and oxidation in skeletal muscle is less clea...
CHARACTERISATION OF FLAVONOID GLYCOSIDES IN PHARMACOPOEIAL PREPARATION OF CISSUS VERTICILLATA (L) NICOLSON & C. E. JARVIS) USING HPLC-DAD AND HPLC-MS
According to Brazilian regulation, the registration of phytomedicines must inform the characterisation of, at least, one of their constituent. In order to contribute to this goal, a tincture of Cissus verticillata (L.) Nicolson & C.E. Jarvis prepared with ethanol 96oGL was investigated. This plant species is widely used due its hypoglycaemic properties, to control diabetes, and empirically to ...
Aim: To study the relationship between serum Vitamin D levels and insulin resistance in obese and non obese adolescents. Introduction: Vitamin D deficiency in obese adolescent is strongly associated with increased risk for diabetes, hyper tension and metabolic syndrome. Vitamin D insufficiency is a risk factor for developing impaired glucose in childhood obesity and is associated with insulin ...
Proteins are the most essential and versatile macromolecules of life, and the knowledge of their functions is a crucial link in the development of new drugs, better crops, and even the development of synthetic biochemicals such as biofuels. Experimental procedures for protein function prediction are inherently low throughput and are thus unable to annotate a non-trivial fraction of proteins that a...
The objective of the present work was to set up micro-coulometric technique in the laboratory and estimate microgram level quantity of nitrofurantoin in the pharmaceutical tablets. A simple, sensitive, and reproducible manually operated microcoulometric technique has been successfully used for the estimation of nitrofurantoin in pharmaceutical tablets. A potentostat and coulometric cell was used i...
This study was aimed to design and develop iontophoretic drug delivery of L-Tyrosine in the treatment of phenylketonuria. The In-house iontophoretic drug delivery device was designed and validation was performed respect to Current intensity, Voltage, and Power Resistance. The study was also focused various parameters such as effect of different drug concentrations (2.5mg/5ml, 5mg/5ml, 10mg/5ml, 15...
Diabetes is a chronic disease caused by inherited or acquired deficiency in insulin secretion and by decreased responsiveness of the organs to secreted insulin. The protective effect of aqueous extract of Plumeria Rubra was studied against streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetes in rats. Plumeria rubra was administered orally at 3 dose levels (100, 200, 400mg/kg). Plumeria rubra extract and standard...
COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF THE EFFECT OF STANNOUS CHLORIDE (SnCl2) AND DIMETHYLTIN DICHLORIDE (DMTC) ON DIAZOTROPHIC GROWTH AND NITROGEN METABOLISM OF NOSTOC MUSCORUM
Stannous chloride (SnCl2), an inorganic salt and Dimethyltin dichloride (DMTC), the organic species were found to influence the survival and nitrogen assimilatory system of Nostoc muscorum. A difference in the survival fractions suggested for differential susceptibility of the strain to the toxic effects of the either tin species. Growth of the Nostoc muscorum cells, measured as a function of grad...
Solubility is one of the important parameter to achieve desired concentration of drug in systemic circulation for pharmacological response to be shown. Poorly water soluble drugs often require high doses in order to reach therapeutic plasma concentrations after oral administration. Any drug to be absorbed must be present in the form of an aqueous solution at the site of absorption. Most of the dru...
NEW INHIBITORS AGAINST accD3 GENE OF MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS, IN-SILICO STUDY AND IN -VITRO APPLICATION
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) is a pathogenic bacteria species in the genus Mycobacterium and the causative agent of most cases of tuberculosis. Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death in the world from a bacterial infectious disease. This antibiotic resistance strain lead to development of the new antibiotics or drug molecules which can kill or suppress the growth of Mycobacterium tube...
