related genes. It serves as a modern molecular tool to knockdown the expression of genes and manipulates mammalian cells through RNAi. By utilizing this unparallel power of RNAi, the scientists are trying to achieve large scale functional manipulations. In mammalian cells virus derived small RNA (vs-RNA) has been detected in 1 variety of human cell...
Article
Fagonia indica is one of the commercially vital medicinal plant species. It is well-known for biosynthesis of anticancer phenolics and flavonoids metabolites. The plant has been exploited for in vitro studies and production of vital phytochemicals, however, the synergistic effects of melatonin and lights remains to be investigated. In current study...

Gonorrheal infections are the second most prevalent sexually transmitted diseases STDs in the USA populations after Chlamydia. These infections have now become an urgent problem to address because Neisseria gonorrhoeae is capable of developing resistance to multiple antibiotic classes. Infection with these antibiotic-resistant strains has become th...

Lepidium sativum L. is a rich source of polyphenols that have huge medicinal and pharmaceutical applications. In the current study, an effective abiotic elicitation strategy was designed for enhanced biosynthesis of polyphenols in callus culture of L. sativum. Callus was exposed to UV-C radiations for different time intervals and various concentrat...
Article
Lepidium sativum L. is an important edible, herbaceous plant with huge medicinal value as cardio-protective, hepatoprotective and antitumor agent. This study was designed and performed to investigate biosynthesis of plant's active ingredients in callus cultures of L. sativum in response to the exposure of multi spectral lights. Optimum biomass accu...

Ocimum basilicum L. var purpurascens (purple basil) contains medicinally valuable metabolites. Light greatly influences the physiological processes, including biomass accumulation and secondary metabolites production in medicinal plants. Herein, we investigated the influence of different spectral lights on the biosynthesis of phenylpropanoid metabo...

Eclipta alba L., also known as false daisy, is well known and commercially attractive plant with excellent hepatotoxic and antidiabetic activities. Light is considered a key modulator in plant morphogenesis and survival by regulating important physiological cascades. Current study was carried out to investigate growth and developmental aspects of E...
Article

Solanum xanthocarpum is considered an important traditional medicinal herb because of its unique antioxidant, and anti-diabetic, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory potential. Because of the over exploitation linked to its medicinal properties as well as destruction of its natural habitat, S. xanthocarpum is now becoming endangered and its supply is...
Article
Abstract Ajuga integrifolia Buch. Ham. ex D.Don is pharmacologically important plant, commonly known as Kori Booti. Phytochemicals of this plant are used to treat variety of illnesses, ranging from mild tooth ache to malaria and inflammatory diseases. In present study, exogenous role of plant signaling molecules such as salicylic acid (SA) and gib...
Article

Silybum marianum (L.) Gaertn. is a well-known medicinal herb, primarily used in liver protection. Light strongly affects several physiological processes along with secondary metabolites biosynthesis in plants. Herein, S. marianum was exploited for in vitro potential under different light regimes in the presence of melatonin. The optimal callogenic...
Article
Cancer linked mechanism of inflammatory and neuropathic pain came out as complex pathologic process and a formidable clinical impasse. Over the decades significant headway has been made to unravel etiology of cancer pain and prime pathological maneuver tie with its microenvironment by models incited approaches. The cross talk between the cancer cel...

Nanotechnology uses very small molecular and intracellular structures ranging from 1 to 100-nanometer in size to create, employ and qualify materials and devices. It is a well-established branch of science having significant applications in wide range of medicine. It has wide usage in pharmaceutics for targeted delivery of drugs and genes into cell...
Article
Halophiles are the microorganisms that possesses highly stable enzymes and can perform the cellular activities at extreme conditions of salinity. Enzymes and other functional proteins found in other groups of organisms are more susceptible to denaturation, aggregation and precipitation at such extreme condition. The current study explores the diver...

The present study was conducted in Peshawar, Pakistan in September 2016 on anemic patients. Total 100 samples were collected from the age of 18 months to 80 years in EDTA tubes and complete blood count was done on Sysmex kx-21. Results indicated that total of 48% were found anemic, 25(52%) females and 23(47%) males showed positive results of having...
