Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad is a university, focusing on engineering, located in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. Founded in 1965 as the Nagarjuna Sagar Engineering College, it was established as a university in 1972 by The Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Act, 1972, also combining colleges in Kakinada and Anantapur. In 2008 the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological Universities Act, 2008 split the university back into four universities, Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University, Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Anantapur, Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad and Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Kakinada.The university is situated at Kukatpally. It has ‘A’ grade accreditation by the NAAC. It has an intake of about 1000 students. Wikipedia.

Mechanisms of Ageing and Development | Year: 2011
Earlier we have used biochemical approach to assess the number of single (SSBs) and double (DSBs) strand breaks in brain cellular DNA. However, a quick method to obtain a reliable measure of DNA damage in cells was in need for population studies. Therefore, single cell gel electrophoresis technique (popularly known as " comet" assay) has been standardized using the Trevigen protocol. DNA damage was assessed in isolated neurons and astrocytes from the cortex of young (7 days), adult (6 months) and old (2 years). Marked increase is seen in DNA damage in terms SSBs and DSBs in both types of cells by 6 months of age, which increased further by 2 years of age. The number of 8-oxoguanine DNA glycosylase (OGG1) and uracil DNA glycosylase (UDG) sensitive sites also increased in DNA with age with the simultaneous decrease in OGG1, UDG and AP endonuclease (APE1) activities. Thus the comet assay adapted to our lab conditions has proven to be useful for a quick assessment of DNA damage in a large number of samples that constitute our future studies. © 2011 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

Eucalyptus is the second most widely planted multipurpose woody tree species in the world. It is a commercially important hardwood tree for paper and wood industries. In the past two decades, various research groups reported different genetic transformation protocols and attempts towards development of transgenic eucalyptus. Much of the work related to its genetic improvement through transgenic technology has been undertaken by private companies that keep the data confidential, patented and often share only a part of the scientific information as publications. The important areas which received scientific attention are wood quantity, quality, stress resistance and rootability. The present review deals with scientific advancements and insights made through the development of transgenic eucalyptus. © 2011 Prof. H.S. Srivastava Foundation for Science and Society.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are defined as undifferentiated cells that are capable of self renewal and differentiation into several cell types such as chondrocyte, adipocyte, osteocyte, myocyte, hepatocyte, and neuron-like cells. MSC can be isolated from bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, adipose tissue, placenta, periosteum, trabecular bone, synovium, skeletal muscle, and deciduous teeth. Immunomodulatory of MSCs is one of the important issues nowadays, because this aspect can be clinically applied for graft-versus-host and autoimmune diseases. In this review, we tried to discuss in detail about cytokines and factors such as members of the transforming growth factor superfamily (transforming growth factor-β), hepatic growth factors (HGF), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), IL-10, indolamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO), nitric oxide (NO), heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), and human leukocyte antigen-G (HLA-G) that are involved in immunomodulatory of MSCs. © 2011 John Wiley & Sons A/S.

Purpose: Retailing in India is an unchartered territory. Food and grocery is the most promising area for setting up retail business in India. An understanding of shopper retail format choice behaviour will enable retailers to segment their market and target specific consumer groups with strategies premeditated to meet their retail needs. The purpose of this paper is to make a detailed study on the effect of shoppers' demographic, geographic and psychographic dimensions in terms of format choice behaviour in the fast growing Indian food and grocery retailing. Design/methodology/approach: Descriptive research design is adopted applying mall intercept survey method using structured questionnaire for data collection. Both descriptive (mean and standard deviation) and inferential statistical tools like χ2, factor analysis and multivariate analysis are used to analyse the data collected from 1,040 food and grocery retail customers from upgraded neighbourhood kirana stores, convenience stores, supermarkets and hypermarkets in conjoint cities of Secunderabad and Hyderabad in Andhra Pradesh in India. Findings: The findings suggest that shoppers' age, gender, occupation, education, monthly household income, family size and distance travelled to store have significant association with retail format choice decisions. The choice decisions are also varied among shoppers' demographic attributes. The findings from shoppers' psychographic dimensions like values, lifestyle factors and shopping orientations resulted in segmentation of food and grocery retail consumers into hedonic, utilitarian, autonomous, conventional and socialization type. Practical implications: The study has practical implications for food and grocery retailers for better understanding the shopper behaviour in the context of changing consumer demographic and psychographic characteristics in an emerging Indian retail market. The findings may help the retailers to segment and target the food and grocery retail consumers and, as a consequence, to undertake more effective retail marketing strategies for competitive advantage. Originality/value: Given the absence of published academic literature and empirical findings relating to store format choice behaviour in food and grocery retailing in India, this study may serve as a departure point for future studies in this area of concern. The research is also relevant to retail marketers in terms of format development and reorientation of marketing strategies in the fastest growing Indian retail market. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

Adiponectin is produced in the white adipose tissue and is known to have anti-metabolic and anti-inflammatory properties. Serum/plasma adiponectin levels depend on diet, physical activity, and inheritance. Epidemiologic observations suggest a potential link between obesity and gastrointestinal malignancies. Low levels of adiponectin, which are known to occur in obesity, may contribute to the high incidence of cancer in this population. This review discusses the biochemical and molecular evidence regarding the relationship between adiponectin and gastrointestinal carcinogenesis and provides several future perspectives on the role of adiponectin as a target for prevention and therapy. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
