Sandalwood trees are the only source of precious natural sandal oil obtained from the heartwood. The tree develops heartwood over a period of twenty years. However, flowering and seed set are observed within two years of planting. Seeds serve as a potential source of an important therapeutic compound and therefore ensures steady income to the growers. Indian Sandalwood and Australian sandalwood are the source of a unique fatty acid called Ximenynic or Santalbic acid. Sandal grows in abundance in many states of South India.

Santalum album, Ximenynic acid, Gas chromatography, Provenances.

Two-phased experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of dietary supplementation of probiotic bacterium on shrimp physiology. In first phase shrimp fed with probiotic supplemented feed for 21 days, in second phase challenged with White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) and their physiological responses were investigated for 2 days post-challenged. The probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus sps was added to the formulated basal diet at 5%, 10% and 15%concentration. Growth, immune response, antioxidant status of shrimp were evaluated.

Keywords: 
Antioxidant response, immune response, Probiotics, WSSV

Seedling vigor is an important trait for better crop establishment, wherein limited or excess moisture prevails under unfavorable soil conditions. Many high yielding indica cultivars of rice (Oryza sativa L.) performs well under transplanted conditions, but fail to establish under direct seeded conditions.

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of Ivermectin (Ivermic super®) 0.2 mg/kg b.wt in cattle calves. The study was conducted in four cross-bred male cattle calves (1.0-1.5 yrs in age, weighing 110±5 kg). The plasma concentration of ivermectin was determined by HPLC.The decay in plasma concentration of drug was biexponential in cattle calves. The Cmax value of 28.18 was obtained at Tmax of 4.7 days in cattle calves, following SC administration of Ivermic super®.

Keywords:

The aim of the present study is to isolate endothelial cells from goat umbilical artery and to characterise them according to gross morphological and immunological criteria. A relatively simple, effective and less time consuming method was used for the first time to isolate and characterise goat umbilical artery endothelial cells (GUAEC). The isolated GUAECs were identified by cellular morphology and immunocytochemistry. Endothelial cells isolated were homogeneous in nature, oval shaped, with distinct cell borders and centrally located nucleus.

Keywords: 
Endothelial cells, Goat umbilical artery, Ulexeuropaeus agglutinin-I, Von Willebrand factor VII.
