Seven different Cyanobacterial species belonging to 4 genera were isolated from the alkaline Lake Lonar, situated in the Buldhana district of Maharashtra. The phycocyanin producing ability of all the isolates was screened. All the isolated alkaliphilic cyanobacteria showed more than 10 mgL-1 of phycocyanin. From the seven cultures tested, Synechocystis aquatilis showed the highest production of ...
Aim of the present study is to analyze Mūcāmparap paṛṛu, a poly herbomineral Siddha formulation for physicochemical parameters, TLC photo documentation, and HPTLC fingerprint profile studies. The physicochemical parameters such as ash contents, solubility in water and ethanol, pH, loss on drying and successive extraction with hexane, chloroform, and ethanol were carried out.

EFFECTIVITY OF STARVATION ON DIGESTIVE ENZYME OF FEMALE HOLOTRICHIA SERRATA (FAB) (COLEOPTERA: SCARABAEIDAE)
The effect of starvation on the digestive enzymes of female Holotrichia serrata (Fab) shows that there are considerable general reductions in enzymatic activities except in a lipase in both gut sections; however there are considerable increases of soluble proteins, both the gut section homogenates of the starved female. The maximum reduction of protease is 83% in a hindgut and 86% in the midgut fo...
