Fatty acids characterization and oxidative stability of spray dried designer egg powder

Designer eggs (DEs) have gained positive importance in maintaining cholesterol level, triglyceride profile and protection towards cardiovascular diseases due to the presence of essential fatty acids (EFAs) such as omega-3 (or) n-3 fatty acids. However, extreme heat conditions effect the quality as well as quantity of EFAs during the production of designer egg dried powder (DEDP...

Formal model of earthquake disaster mitigation and management system

Wireless sensor and actors networks (WSANs) have become an important research area due to its large number of applications in safety, security and mission-critical systems. Natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods have distressing effects on human lives, economy and environment particularly in the developing countries due to their high population and lack of...

Formal analysis of subnet-based failure recovery algorithm in wireless sensor and actor and network

Wireless sensor and actor networks (WSANs) have various applications in safety and mission critical systems. Sensors are used for sensing the information whereas actors for taking intelligent decisions. Developing and modeling algorithms for WSANs have raised several research issues which have captured attention of the research community. Maintaining inter-actor connectivity or...

Formal specification and analysis of take-off procedure using VDM-SL

Purpose Air traffic management system is a complex adaptive and safety critical system which requires considerable attention for its modelling and verification. Currently Air traffic control (ATC) systems are heavily dependent upon human intervention at airport causing accidents and delays because of failure of communication. The purpose of this study is to develop, plan, manage...

Use of E-resources by Users of Dr. Y.S. Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry

The paper is the outcome of a survey conducted at Dr. Y. S. Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry (DYSPUH&F). The aim of the survey was to assess the use of electronic information resources (EIRs) by the academic community of the university. Questionnaire method was used as a data collection tool. It was found that users of DYSPUH&F library prefer both print and...

LncRNAs and immunity: watchdogs for host pathogen interactions

Immune responses combat various infectious agents by inducing inflammatory responses, antimicrobial pathways and adaptive immunity. The polygenic responses to these external stimuli are temporally and coordinately regulated. Specific lncRNAs are induced to modulate innate and adaptive immune responses which can function through various target interactions like RNA-DNA, RNA-RNA...

Impact of extrusion processing conditions on lipid peroxidation and storage stability of full-fat flaxseed meal

Background The full-fat flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) meal has obtained relatively new flourished concept as food or feedstuff for the development of healthier products. It provides favorable balance of polyunsaturated, monounsaturated and saturated fatty acids. However, flaxseed meal may be susceptible to oxidation by exposure to various storage conditions which is extremely...

Potential protective properties of flax lignan secoisolariciresinol diglucoside

Lignans are a group of phytonutrients which are widely distributed in the plant kingdom. Flaxseed is the richest source of providing lignan precursor such as secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG). This article reviews the studies relevant to experimental models in animals and humans demonstrating the possible nutraceutical actions of SDG to prevent and alleviate lifestyle...

Alleviation of Cadmium Toxicity in Brassica juncea L. (Czern. & Coss.) by Calcium Application Involves Various Physiological and Biochemical Strategies

Calcium (Ca) plays important role in plant development and response to various environmental stresses. However, its involvement in mitigation of heavy metal stress in plants remains elusive. In this study, we examined the effect of Ca (50 mM) in controlling cadmium (Cd) uptake in mustard (Brassica juncea L.) plants exposed to toxic levels of Cd (200 mg L−1 and 300 mg L−1). The Cd...

Impediments in foreign collaboration and conducting a high throughput molecular epidemiology research in India, an assessment from a feasibility study

BackgroundEsophageal cancer is one of the world’s top ten cancers. Its incidence, especially in the form of squamous cell carcinoma, is very high in some Asian regions including Kashmir. Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh are three provinces of Jammu and Kashmir, the northern most state of India. The three regions represent ethnically diverse socio-cultural populations with different...
