Senna alexandrina (Fabaceae) is a globally recognized medicinal plant for its laxative properties as well as the only source of sennosides, and is highly exported bulk herb from India. Its major procurement is exclusively from limited cultivation, which leads to risks of deliberate or unintended adulteration. The market raw materials are in powdere...
Conference Paper
The Orsay virus/C. elegans model system provides an opportunity to study receptors mediated innate immune pathways. Two pathways have been reported but in C. elegans only TOL-1 with other downstream pathway components viz. TRF-1, PIK-1, and IKB-1 exist. In fact, the cytoplasmic sensors receptors found only in human (HIN200/IFI16/AIM2) has not been...

The genetic model organism, Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans), shares many genes with humans and is the best-annotated of the eukaryotic genome. Therefore, the identification of new genes and pathways is unlikely. Nevertheless, host-pathogen interaction studies from viruses, recently discovered in the environment, has created new opportunity to d...
Conference Paper
Identifying new molecular components and characterizing their function can reveal a novel innate immunity pathway and further provides better strategies to combat viral infection within organisms. The Orsay-Caenorhabditis elegans infection system offers an attractive possibility to identify these components since many genes are conserved with the h...
Article
Caenorhabditis elegans infection by Orsay virus initiates a variety of abnormalities, including intestinal damages. However, the role of the viral capsid proteins to this pathogenicity needs to be further discovered. To address this question, engineered bacterial lawn expressing recombinant viral proteins were used as a food source to deliver them...

The steno-endemic species of genus Decalepis are highly threatened by destructive wild harvesting. The medicinally important fleshy tuberous roots of Decalepis hamiltonii are traded as substitute, to meet the international market demand of Hemidesmus indicus. In addition, the tuberous roots of all three species of Decalepis possess similar exudates...

DNA barcoding is used as a universal tool for delimiting species boundaries in taxonomically challenging groups, with different plastid and nuclear regions (rbcL, matK, ITS and psbAtrnH) being recommended as primary DNA barcodes for plants. We evaluated the feasibility of using these regions in the species-rich genus Terminalia, which exhibits vari...

Premise of the Study. The internal transcribed spacer ( ITS ) region is situated between 18S and 26S in a polycistronic rRNA precursor transcript. It had been proved to be the most commonly sequenced region across plant species to resolve phylogenetic relationships ranging from shallow to deep taxonomic levels. Despite several taxonomical revisions...
Article
Ocimum tenuiflorum has been widely used in traditional medicine and has high medicinal value. High volume trade of this potential medicinal plant species led to unscrupulous adulteration of both crude drugs as well as formulations. Morphology-based authentication is difficult in cases of incomplete or damaged samples and in dried herbal materials....

Purpose: Globalization of trade is expanding the herbal product market. India with its immense biodiversity is sitting on a gold mine of well recorded and traditionally well-practised knowledge of herbal medicine which are the fastest-growing segment of the alternative medicines market world-wide. The dramatic increase in exports of medicinal plant...

High level of morphological as well as chemical variability exists within the genus Ocimum, and its taxonomy and phylogenetic relationships are still doubtful. For evaluating interspecific genetic relationships among the Ocimum species, genotyping with intersimple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers and sequence analyses of noncoding psbA-trnH intergeni...

The past couple of decades have witnessed global resurgence of herbal-based health care. As a result, the trade of raw drugs has surged globally. Accurate and fast scientific identification of the plant(s) is the key to success for the herbal drug industry. The conventional approach is to engage an expert taxonomist, who uses a mix of traditional a...
