This paper studies LEACH protocol, some of its modified versions and finally puts forward a new version of LEACH called Energy Efficient Extended LEACH (EEE LEACH) protocol. This new version of LEACH protocol establishes multilevel clustering approach to minimize communication distance between nodes and introduces Master Cluster Heads along with Cluster Heads. Simulation has been done in MATLAB and simulation results show that EEE LEACH is more energy-efficient than LEACH protocol. © 2012 IEEE.

The tricuspid valve complex has been studied since the beginning of the twentieth century, and variations in the structural orientation of the tricuspid leaflets has been reported before, as the occurrence of accessory leaflets poses a major problem during surgeries related to the tricuspid valve. In this study, 36 adult formalin-fixed human hearts were analyzed to compare the number, form and size of the tricuspid leaflets. The result shows that in right ventricles, the number of leaflets can vary from the routine three to as many as seven, and the localization of such accessory leaflets of the tricuspid valve differs between specimens. Five leaflet forms were the most common, and the ‘typical’ form of tricuspid valves with no accessory leaflets was only present in a small percentage of the cases studied. Measurements of the main and accessory leaflets showed that the anterior leaflets were the largest, followed by the inferior leaflets, while the septal and the accessory leaflets were the smallest in size. On the basis of these results, it is suggested that three leaflets of the tricuspid valve are relatively uncommon, with frequent occurrences of accessory leaflets. The multicuspidal form of the tricuspid valve therefore raises concern about understanding the functional and physiological significance of the accessory leaflets. © 2015, Japanese Association of Anatomists.

Background: Contamination of water, food, and environment with antibiotic-resistant bacteria poses a serious public health issue. Objective: The objective was to study the bacterial pollution of the natural sources of water in east Sikkim and to determine the antimicrobial profile of the bacterial isolates. Materials and Methods: A total of 225 samples, 75 each during winter, summer, and monsoon season were collected from the same source in every season for bacteriological analysis by membrane filtration method. Antibiotic susceptibility test was performed using standard disc diffusion method. Results: A total of 19 bacterial species of the genera Escherichia, Klebsiella, Proteus, Salmonella, Shigella, Enterobacter, Citrobacter, Morganella, Pseudomonas, Acinetobacter, Flavobacterium, and Serratia were isolated and their antimicrobial sensitivity tested. Generally, most bacterial isolates except Salmonella and Shigella species were found resistant to commonly used antibiotics such as ampicillin (57.5%), trimethoprim/sulfamethoxaole (39.1%), amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (37.4%), cefixime (34.5%), tetracycline (29.1%), ceftazidime (26.3%), ofloxacin (25.9%), amikacin (8.7%), and gentamicin (2.7%) but sensitive to imipenem and piperacillin/tazobactam. Conclusion: Natural sources of water in east Sikkim are grossly contaminated with bacteria including enteropathogens. The consumption of untreated water from these sources might pose health risk to consumers. © 2014 Indian Journal of Community Medicine. All Rights Reserved.

The advent of Web 2.0 has revolutionized the Internet as an inevitable resource of information in today's human age. The earlier version of World Wide Web (WWW) presented a way communication while the newer version has opened up the avenues for instant and collaborative interaction with rest of the world. This evolution has prompted the deployment of new and innovative services on the web. One such tool which has taken a centre stage in today's Internet age is the Social Networking (SN). In this paper an attempt is been made to demonstrate how these SN tools could be used as an effective learning tool in the higher education space. The paper also discusses how the different features available in these SN sites - platform could be harnessed for monitoring and evaluation. The paper highlights the usage of other online tools along with this SN tool to create an effective and efficient online Teaching and Learning space. © 2012 IEEE.

The objective of this work is to make a neural network function approximation model to detect human age from the electrocardiogram (ECG) signal. The input vectors of the neural network are the Katz fractal dimension of the ECG signal, frequencies in the QRS complex, male or female (represented by numeric constant) and the average of successive R–R peak distance of a particular ECG signal. The QRS complex has been detected by short time Fourier transform algorithm. The successive R peak has been detected by, first cutting the signal into periods by auto-correlation method and then finding the absolute of the highest point in each period. The neural network used in this problem consists of two layers, with Sigmoid neuron in the input and linear neuron in the output layer. The result shows the mean of errors as (Formula presented.) , 1.03, 0.79 years and the standard deviation of errors as 1.81, 1.77, 2.70 years during training, cross validation and testing with unknown data sets, respectively. © 2016, Springer Science+Business Media New York.

The carbonic anhydrases enzymes (CAs, EC 184.108.40.206) are zinc containing metalloproteins, which efficiently catalyse the reversible conversion of carbon dioxide to bicarbonate and release proton. These enzymes are essentially important for biological system and play several important physiological and patho-physiological functions. There are 16 different alpha-carbonic anhydrase isoforms studied, differing widely in their cellular localization and biophysical properties. The catalytic domains of all CAs possess a conserved tertiary structure fold, with predominately β-strands. We performed an extensive analysis of all 16 mammalian CAs for its structure and function in order to establish a structure-function relationship. CAs have been a potential therapeutic target for many diseases. Sulfonamides are considered as a strong and specific inhibitor of CA, and are being used as diuretics, anti-glaucoma, anti-epileptic, anti-ulcer agents. Currently CA inhibitors are widely used as a drug for the treatment of neurological disorders, anti-glaucoma drugs, anti-cancer, or anti-obesity agents. Here we tried to emphasize how CAs can be used for drug discovery, design and screening. Furthermore, we discussed the role of CA in carbon capture, carbon sensor and metabolon. We hope this review provide many useful information on structure, function, mechanism, and applications of CAs in various discipline. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Background and Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of modified constraint induced movement therapy (m-CIMT) in stroke subjects. Materials and Methods: A total of forty sub-acute stroke subjects were randomly assigned to either a m-CIMT (n = 20) or in a control group (n = 20). The m-CIMT group (14 men, 6 women; mean age = 55.2 years) consisted of structured 2 h therapy sessions emphasizing affected arm use, occurring 5 times/week for 2 weeks. A mitt was used to restrain the unaffected arm for 10 h/day for 2 week. The control group (11 men, 9 women; mean age = 56.4 years) consisted of conventional rehabilitation for time-matched exercise program. The outcome measures were evaluated at pre- and post-intervention by using the Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT) and Fugl-Meyer assessment (FMA) of motor recovery after stroke. Results: After intervention significant effects were observed in m-CIMT group on WMFT (pre-test and post-test score was 28.04 ± 6.58, 13.59 ± 2.86; P =0.003). Similarly on FMA (pre- and post-test score was 31.15 ± 6.37, 55.7 ± 6.4; P = 0.00). Conclusion: There is a significant improvem ent in upper extremity function so it indicates that m-CIMT is effective in improving the motor function of the affected arm in stroke subjects. However, its long-term effect has not proved since there was no follow-up after intervention.
