Density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) calculations were performed with the basis sets 6-31G for DFT and 6-31G(d), 6-31+G(d,p) for TDDFT on pure graphene nanoribbon (GNR) C30H14 and metal-decorated C29H14-X (MGNRs; X=Ni, Fe, Ti, Co+, Al+, and Cu+). The metal/carbon ratio (X:C 3.45%) and the doping site were fixed. Electronic properties, that is, the dipole moment, binding energy, and HOMO-LUMO gaps, were calculated. The absorption and emission properties in the visible range (λ=400-720 nm) were determined. Optical gaps, absorption and emission wavelengths, oscillator strengths, and dominant transitions were calculated. Pure graphene was found to be the most stable form. However, of the MGNRs, C29H14Co+ and C29H14Al+ were found to be the most and least stable, respectively. All GNRs were found to have semiconducting nature. The optical absorption of pure graphene undergoes a shift on metal doping. Emission from the pure graphene followed Kasha′s rule, unlike the metal-doped GNRs. Doping nanoribbons: The electronic and optical properties of pure graphene nanoribbon (GNR) C30H14 and metal-decorated nanoribbons C29H14-X (MGNRs; X=Ni, Fe, Ti, Co+, Al+, Cu+) with a fixed doping site are calculated by using DFT and time-dependent DFT calculations. All GNRs are found to have semiconducting nature. © 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.


This study was undertaken to investigate the influence of plant probiotic fungus Piriformospora indica on the medicinal plant C. forskohlii. Interaction of the C. forskohlii with the root endophyte P. indica under field conditions, results in an overall increase in aerial biomass, chlorophyll contents and phosphorus acquisition. The fungus also promoted inflorescence development, consequently the amount of p-cymene in the inflorescence increased. Growth of the root thickness was reduced in P. indica treated plants as they became fibrous, but developed more lateral roots. Because of the smaller root biomass, the content of forskolin was decreased. The symbiotic interaction of C. forskohlii with P. indica under field conditions promoted biomass production of the aerial parts of the plant including flower development. The plant aerial parts are important source of metabolites for medicinal application. Therefore we suggest that the use of the root endophyte fungus P. indica in sustainable agriculture will enhance the medicinally important chemical production.

In the present study, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data retrieved from Terra satellite has been used to investigate the spatial and temporal variations in aerosol particles over North Eastern region of India for the period (2001-2010). Aerosol optical depths have found to be increased >15% across North Eastern part of India during the last decade (2001-2010). During the summer season, the mean AOD values (0.60±0.07) were observed whereas during the post monsoon season, mean AOD values were observed to be 0.07±0.02. Highest annual mean increase of AOD (> 79%) has been found over Guwahati. We then studied the relationship between AOD and five other cloud parameters namely water vapor, cloud fraction, cloud top temperature, cloud top pressure and cloud optical depth over North Eastern part of India so as to provide a better understanding of aerosol-cloud interaction. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

The present paper describes the study of defect modes in a one-dimensional photonic crystal (1d-PC) containing a high and low temperature superconductor as a defect layer at different temperatures below the superconducting transition temperature (T c ). Since the refractive index of the superconducting material is dependent on the penetration depth, which depends on the temperature of the superconducting material, hence by changing the temperature of the superconducting material its refractive index can also be changed. Analysis of the transmission spectra of defect modes in the reflection band of 1d-PC structure shows a shift in the wavelength peak of the defect mode. The shift in peak is different for different superconducting materials and it increases with the increase in temperature whether the defect layer is high T c or low T c superconductors. We also study the presence two defect layers in a 1d-PC structure, one with high T c and other with a low T c superconductor. Further, the effect of variation in the thickness of the defect layer on the defect modes of the PC structure has also been studied In order to obtain the transmission (reflection) spectra of a 1d-PC structure with a defect, we employ the transfer matrix method (TMM). This property of the defective PC structure can be exploited in designing the temperature sensor and narrow optical filters. Further, this tunable feature of superconductor photonic crystal has technical use in the superconducting electronics and photonics. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

Mycotoxins that commonly occur in cereal grains and other products can contaminate finished processed foods on account of their high toxicity. The mycotoxins that are commonly associated with food grains include aflatoxins, ochratoxin A, fumonisins, deoxynivalenol, and zearalenone. Various food-processing operations include sorting, trimming, cleaning, cooking, baking, frying, roasting, flaking, and extrusion that have variable effects on mycotoxins. The nature of the processing operation viz. physical, chemical, or thermal plays an important role in this; usually, the processes that utilize the higher temperatures have greater effects on mycotoxin dissipation. In general, the processes are known to reduce mycotoxin concentrations significantly, but do not eliminate them completely. However, roasting and extrusion processing result in lowest mycotoxin concentrations, since these involve higher temperatures. It is observed that very high temperatures are needed to bring about high reduction in mycotoxin concentrations, approaching acceptable background levels. The treatment with chemicals like ammonia, bicarbonate, citric acid, or sodium bisulfite is also effective in resulting in significant decline in mycotoxin concentrations. © 2015, Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

With the emergence of more and more molecular markers as useful tools in plethora of population genetic and phylogenetic studies, choice of marker system for a particular study has become mind boggling. These marker systems differ in their advantages and disadvantages, so it is imperative to keep in mind all the pros and cons of the technique while selecting one for the problem to be addressed. Here, we have shed light on the ISSR (intersimple sequence repeat) technique, as a marker of choice if one wants to go for properties such as reliability, simplicity, cost effectiveness, and speed, in addition to assessing genetic diversity between closely related individuals. We have outlined here the whole methodology of this technique with an example of Tribulus terrestris as case study. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

In this study, we investigated the mechanism of brucine in tumor angiogenesis. We found that brucine inhibits VEGF-induced cell proliferation, chemotactic motility, and the formation of capillary-like structures in HUVECs in a dose-dependent manner. Brucine suppresses VEGF- induced p-VEGFR2 kinase activity and inhibits neovascularization in vivo. Brucine inhibits the downstream protein kinases of VEGFR2, including Src, FAK, ERK, AKT and mTOR. And further downregulates levels of VEGF, NO, IL-6, IL-8, TNF-α and IFN-γ in HUVECs. Taken together, our study suggests that brucine potently suppresses angiogenesis by targeting VEGFR2 activation and may be a viable drug candidate in anti-angiogenesis and anti-cancer therapies. © 2013 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
