Abstract Prevalence of different abnormal hemoglobins (Hb) in Indian tribal and nontribal population groups is well established. Sickle cell hemoglobin (HbS) is mostly concentrated in Central and South Indian states, whereas HbD and Hb E is mostly found in North-North-West and North-North-East states respectively. HbJ, an alpha globin gene variant,...
Around the world, more than 80% of the population utilizes traditional medicines for curing and managing diseases. In India, most of the Ayurvedic pharma companies uses different cultivars of Ayurvedic plants based on the presence of specific chemical contents, e.g. Eugenol content in Ocimum tenuiflorum Linn. Tulsi. These contents vary from cultiva...
Introduction: Malaria and sickle cell disease (SCD) are more common in tribal populations of India, with varying prevalence amongst different ethnic groups. SCD affects mostly the socio-economically deprived communities, living in the three clusters of 10 neighboring states in India. Most of this endogamous population in India, including, scheduled...
Ocimum tenuiflorum Linn. Tulsi, is widely used in many Ayurvedic preparations, however, its molecular identification by fast and robust single amplicon marker is not properly understood. Most commonly studied molecular markers for plant identification from chloroplast, mitochondria and nuclear source, are not very easy for the rapid and efficient i...
The origin of haemoglobinopathies and prevalence of endemic malaria are inter-linked. Natural protection from malaria pathogenesis after infection might be the most likely and highly accepted hypothesis of origin of different alleles of normal adult haemoglobin in different population groups throughout the world, more specifically in the tropical c...
Indian Soda Lake, Lonar, has been studied because of its ancient status and significant bacterial diversity including alkaliphiles. However, these studies were inadequate to differentiate akaliphiles at molecular level and their ability as exoelectrogens. Present study deals with bacterial isolation, their identification based on 16S rRNA along wit...
