Plant health and other parameters are dependent on plant growth promoting (PGP) abilities which are further dependent on the microflora in the plant rhizospheric soil. In this study both the sterile and non-sterile soils of Dehradun were taken for the PGP and the seeds of Cicer arietinum were taken for the vigour index with the treatment of NKA1 (phosphate solubilizer).

Keywords:

Doxofylline was formulated as lozenges to provide slow release medicament for the management of asthma for cough and itchy throat. The present investigation has been taken up to design, prepare and evaluate hard candy lozenges to meet the need of improved bioavailability. The benefits of these prepared lozenges showed increase in bioavailability, reduction in gastric irritation by passing of first pass metabolism and increase in onset of action.

Keywords: 
Hard candy lozenges, Doxofylline, Anti-asthma, Polymers.

Therapeutic proteins such as monoclonal antibodies are complex molecules, need extensive characterization before their release into the market for clinical use. Therapeutic protein formulations are routinely characterized for their tertiary structure. Extrinsic fluorescence spectroscopy using various molecular rotors such as polarity sensitive ANS dyes is commonly used for the tertiary structure determination.

Nitrogen efficiency (NE) is an important approach to develop nitrogen use efficient (NUE) genotypes in rice growing regions globally. Identification of nitrogen (N) tolerant genotype is the foremost step to develop Nitrogen Use Efficient (NUE) genotypes. In order to identify the N tolerant genotypes in popular indica rice a hydroponic experiment was conducted in glass house with various concentrations of N and 26 genotypes were screened by measuring growth dynamics, biomass accumulation and NE traits.

Keywords: 
Rice genotypes, N treatments, growth dynamics, Nitrogen efficiency, Multivariate statistical analysis, N-efficient and N-inefficient genotypes

Staphylokinase isolated from Staphylococcus hominis has therapeutic function to dissolve the blood clots. Staphylococcus hominis was isolated from curd. Staphylococcus spp was confirmed by morphological, biochemical and molecular techniques such as 16s rDNA sequencing. Satoh’s medium was used for the production Staphylokinase. Cells were separated from culture broth by centrifugation and the supernatant fluid was added to 3 volume of acetone.
