How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Apratim Sai Rajesh is currently pursuing research in the Abnormal Hemoglobin Research Unit, Department of Biosciences and Biotechnology, Fakir Mohan University, Balasore - Odisha, India. An alumnus of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning (Deemed to be University), Prashanti Nilayam He did his Bachelors and Masters in Biosciences in the Department of Biosciences and Biotechnology, from 2009-14 His Interests include Molecular (Cell) Biology, Immunology, Molecular Drug Development, Biotechnology and Ecology. Currently He's pursuing his Ph.D. on the Sickle Cell Disease of Odisha State, India. He is also a Research Fellow in a 'DRDO - CARS Project.'
Although horseshoe crabs have ecological and biomedical value, their restricted distribution in the northeast coast (Odisha, West Bengal) to a limited number of researchers have made them an understudied arthropod in India. With an objective that uses ‘desktop review’ for horseshoe crab ecology, biology and their life cycle in India, it is learnt t...
Sickle cell anaemia is one of the first diseases to be clearly defined at molecular level with genetic understanding. Blood biochemistry has significant effect on pathophysiology of human body. The biochemical abnormalities play significant role in sickle cell patient’s pathophysiology and can be used in management of the disease. The biochemical p...
Ergothionine (EGT) is a biomolecule with vast chemical and biological significance, owing to its structural & formational chemistry and its biochemical roles. Right since early 20 th century the research on Ergothionine has been progressively moving. Whilst the true physiological role of EGT has yet to be fully elucidated, EGT has been shown to pos...
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is one of the fatal diseases. Even though we have known about this disease for over a century, there is still an acute lack of effective preventative approaches or mechanism-specific treatment options. Hydroxyurea is currently the only approved treatment for SCD. The fundamental cause of sickle cell disease is the decrease...
Four species of horseshoe crabs exist today. All the four species of horseshoe crabs are classified as either near threatened or data deficient. Out of the four, two species are distributed along the northeast coast of India. Spawning activity has been adversely affected by the degradation and destruction of spawning beaches. The study was carried...
The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of noise and chemical stress onhematological and biochemical parameters of the human body. Certain hematological and biochemical parameters between two groups (Group –A,Group-B) of people working in a central government organization was compared. While the Group –A consisted of people invol...
Hemophilia is a bleeding disorders bleeding disorder caused due to deficiency of blood coagulation factor VIII or factor IX, leading to Hemophilia A and Hemophilia B respectively. Globally the disease has an incidence of 1:5000 and 1:25,000 male births, with approximately half-a-million people suffering worldwide. It is found in all ethnic groups w...
Hemophilia is an X chromosome linked genetic disease which causes bleeding disorders including internal bleeds in the body. The disease owes its effect due to the mutation in coagulation Factor VIII gene, that causes Hemophilia A and mutation in Factor IX gene which causes Hemophilia B. An initial study was conducted to get some baseline data about...
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune, neurodegenerative disease. It affects the central Nervous system, mainly the tissues of white matter, leading to formation of plaques or lesions in the neural pathway, ultimately affecting the brain and spinal cord. Depending on the pathway getting affected, the corresponding organ begins malfunctioning, wh...
This question is about the enzymatic assays of Red Blood Cells in Humans.
I am looking for a method by which the amount of Hemocyanin in a given sample of Hemolymph could be reduced (or possibly be increased as well?) ?
Adequate and effective conservation measures to protect these valuable breeding beaches along the coast of Odisha is therefore important. This project aims to Map the critical spawning ground along the Odisha coastline and to implement conservation measures to mitigate impacts on horseshoe crab populations along the coast of Odisha and focuses on raising conservation awareness among local stakeholders.
