  • No Photo Role of WRKY Family Proteins in Innate Immunity in Pepper    By: Dr. Manisha Mangal

    Plants activate multiple defense mechanisms against pathogen attack in order to protect themselves from infection. This kind of response is often triggered by the recognition of specific pathogens and the activation of highly regulated signal transduction pathways particularly in the cell nucleus, where signals lead to the transcriptional activation of a large array of defense genes. WRKY transcription factors play essential roles in mediating defense responses to different pathogens in pepper. >> Category: Biotech Research

  • No Photo Development of Transgenics for Improved Shelf Life    By: Dr. Manisha Mangal

    The postharvest losses of fruits and vegetables in the developing countries account for almost 50% of the produce. India, the world's second largest producer of fruits and vegetables loses 35-40% of produce because of excessive softening. The softening that accompanies ripening of fruits exacerbates damage during shipping and handling processes. It plays a major role in determining the cost factor, because it has a direct impact on palatability, consumer acceptability, shelf life, and postharvest disease/pathogen resistance. >> Category: Biotech Research

Article: Toxic Fibers and Fabrics - Comment by: Clint - 2014-06-29

Any studies to reference, scientific data, personal research, do you have credentials in the toxicity of materials? Just looking for substantiation or collaboration of any of what was written.

Article: Toxic Fibers and Fabrics - Comment by: Sonali Bhawsar - 2014-06-24

I have authored this article to provide the information and knowledge about toxicity of these things to the readers. I am also aware that hundreds of such things have become integral part of our daily life and we can't get rid of them unless inventers find alternative to them.
Therefore, to utilize or not utilize the things is very personal and its upto individual decisions and i have certainly not made a compulsion to discard or stop using toxic things.
Thanks for reading the article.
