Abstract : Streptomyces fulvissimus ATCC 27431 was studied for siderophore production. Biosynthesis of siderophore was found to be influenced by environmental factors. Out of various media tried, chemically defined low iron medium gave maximum siderophore production (94 % siderophore units). A number of carbon and nitrogen compounds were tested for their effect on growth of Streptomyces fulvissimus and siderophore production.

Abstract
Background/Aims: We investigated whether: 1) in utero low-protein diet (LPD) induced adult hypertension alters vascular estrogen receptor (ER)-related mechanism in both male and female vascular tissues; and whether 2) flutamide, a specific, non-steroidal competitive antagonist of the androgen receptor, improved this system in female offspring. Methods: Pregnant rats were fed either  with 20% protein (control), or 6% protein (LPD) from day 1 (LPD-1) or day 12 (LPD-2) of

Keywords: 
Low-protein diet, estrogen receptors, nitric oxide, angiotensin receptor, flutamide.

Abstract : Callus induction from leaf derived explant of C. ternatea was achieved with 100% frequency on Murashige and Skoog’s basal medium fortified with 2 ?M 2 4- D and 18 ?M kinetin. Callus grew in size and weight till 6th week in culture as measured by an increase in both fresh and dry weights. Aqueous extracts of both seed and callus were prepared for evaluating the antimicrobial activity against selected pathogenic fungi and bacteria using the agar well diffusion technique. Seeds and leaf delivered calli of C.

Abstract : Secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) is an important lignan found in flaxseed and is an emerging source in the functional food area. In the present study, antibacterial properties of SDG extracts from hull, endosperm and flour fractions of Indian flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum) varieties (LVF-01 and GVF-03) were evaluated. The SDG extracts were tested against the six bacterial species  Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Agrobacterium tumefaciens, Bacillus cereus, and Escherichia coli.

Abstract :  Halogenated hetrocyclic compounds have a wide range of pharmacological activities such as antimicrobial, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and hypoglycemic activities. In the present study 1-halo substituted phenyl-3-halo substituted phenyl-4- [benzamido-(2-methyl-3-quinazoline)-4-one] formazans were synthesized by microwave irradiation and conventional heating. Synthesized compounds were screened for antimicrobial and antihelminthic activities. The title compounds were characterized by FTIR, 1HNMR and mass spectroscopic analysis.
