Cellulases are the enzymes that hydrolyze β-1,4 glycosidic bonds in cellulose molecules into simpler molecules such as glucose. The cellulase complexes derived from microbes have been considered as a potential source for biochemical, biotechnology, and bioindustry. Thus, they are broadly used in industries for leather tanning, food, medicine, and d...

Hypercholestrolemia leading to cardiovascular diseases are very common problem in Pakistan and in most cases it is caused due to insufficient intake of dietary fiber. A study was conducted to evaluate the role of dietary fiber and ß-glucan from major food grains used locally on plasma cholesterol level of dietary-induced hypercholesterolemic rats....

General relativity and quantum mechanics were the two major breakthroughs that revolutionized theoretical physics in the twentieth century. General relativity gives the idea to understand the large-scale expansion of the Universe and gives a small correction to the predictions of Newtonian gravity for the motion of planets and the deflection of lig...

Approximately 1% of the global population is affected by intellectual disability (ID), and the majority receive no molecular diagnosis. Previous studies have indicated high levels of genetic heterogeneity, with estimates of more than 2500 autosomal ID genes, the majority of which are autosomal recessive (AR). Here, we combined microarray genotyping...

The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of wheat and maize brans feeds on the random blood glucose of the rats. These feeds were prepared using the the Purified Diet AIN-93-G with some modifications. The experiment was laid out under completely randomized design. The rats (n=24) of almost uniform age and weight were divided into 4 gr...

Article
Objective: To compare the prophylactic antiemetic effect of intravenous (IV) metoclopramide with dexamethasone. Material and Methods: A prospective study of 150 patients undergoing "Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy" was carried out in the Department of Anaesthesiology, Khyber Teaching Hospital, Peshawar, from April 2009 to October 2009. Patients were d...
Article
Availability and mobilization of revenue is the main essential with which an economy is managed and run. While planning or while making the budgets nations set revenue targets to be achieved. But later when the accounts are closed the actual collections of revenue through taxes or even the non-tax revenue collection would invariably be different as...
Article
This study employs auto-regressive distributed lag (ARDL) bounds approach to cointegration for long run and error correction modeling (ECM) for short run analysis to examine the relationship between revenue gap and economic growth for Pakistan using annual time series data over the period 1980 to 2008. The short and long run results indicate that r...
Article

Reclamation is needed on three million ha of slowly permeable saline-sodic soils in the Indus Plain of Pakistan. Previous studies measured an increased field-saturated hydraulic conductivity (Kfs) in the soil under study with cropping and gypsum application. This field experiment was conducted on a low permeability, saline-sodic soil (a fine-loamy,...
Article
Chemical reclamation of sodic and saline-sodic soils has become cost-intensive. Cultivation of plants tolerant of salinity and sodicity may mobilize the CaCO3 present in saline-sodic soils instead of using a chemical approach. Four forage plant species, sesbania (Sesbania aculeata), kallar grass (Leptochloa fusca), millet rice (Echinochloa colona)...
Article
The system of Alfvén waves in a real MHD fluid is discussed in detail. The equation of state and thermodynamic quantities of the system have been obtained with the help of the formulae of Bose-Einstein statistics and electro-dynamics. It has been found that if we ignore the viscous forces from the equation of state of Alfvén waves in a real MHD flu...

Results from a 6-year study of solar ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation measurements at the equatorial location of Penang (5 degrees N) are presented. On clear days, the diurnal flux reaches a very high dosage of about 3.0 x 10(-2) KWHM-2 around midday. The average daily total flux is in the range of 1.6 x 10(-1) KWHM-2 and does not change much seasonal...

The level of thermal cooling in tropical air conditioning is generally kept rather low for the local acclimatized populations. Also it is shown that the effective temperature (ET) comfort index strongly depends upon humidity and should be utilized in regulating the automated air conditioning systems. These considerations together with a site select...

Observations of the atmospheric extinction of solar ultraviolet radiation in the 142- to 149-nm and 155- to 168-nm bands have been used to determine molecular oxygen densities over the 100- to 160-km altitude range in a series of rocket flights from Woomera, Australia (31øS, 136.5øE). Comparison of data from morning period of each flight; aspect co...

Recent laboratory measurements of varies significantly across the width of the the molecular oxygen photoabsorption cross section solar Lymanline. As a consequence of this at a temperature of 195 K provide a more suitable basis for the determination of mesospheric molecular oxygen densities than previously available room temperature cross sections....

Morphactin treatment of 4 weeks old Brassica rapa L. plants caused delay in flowering, fusion of flowers and floral parts and prevented flower formation and seed set at higher concentrations (100, 1000 ppm). It also caused tumorous growth of the spherical succulent tap root at 100 and 1000 ppm.
Article
Morphactin (Chlorflurenol) induced adventitious roots of maize to grow upwards out of the soil, the number of such roots increased with the concentration. The effect was temporary and roots could grow downwards. The amount of Indole-3-acetic acid was not altered but that of 5-hydroxyindolyl acetic acid and Indole-3-acetonitrile decreased while that...
