Temporary fluoride concentration changes in groundwater in the context of impact assessment in the Vaniyar sub-basin, South India

India’s surface water and groundwater distribution is temporally variable due to the monsoon. Agriculture is one of the dominant economic sectors in India. Groundwater quality is regularly assessed to determine usability for drinking and irrigation. In this study, World Health Organization and Bureau of Indian Standards guidelines were used to determine suitability of groundwater...

First occurrence of bean common mosaic virus in soybean [Glycine max] from India

Groundwater recharge potential zones mapping in upper Manimuktha Sub basin Vellar river Tamil Nadu India using GIS and remote sensing techniques

An attempt has been made to assess the groundwater recharge potential zones in Upper Manimuktha sub basin, Vellar river, Tamil Nadu. Groundwater recharge denotes to the entry of water from the unsaturated zone into the saturated zone below the water table surface, together with the associated movement away from the water table within the saturated zone. This study mainly focus...

Mycoplasma pneumoniae CARDS Toxin Is Internalized via Clathrin-Mediated Endocytosis

Bacterial toxins possess specific mechanisms of binding and uptake by mammalian cells. Mycoplasma pneumoniae CARDS (Community Acquired Respiratory Distress Syndrome) toxin is a 68 kDa protein, which demonstrates high binding affinity to human surfactant protein-A and exhibits specific biological activities including mono-ADP ribosylation and vacuolization. These properties lead...

Mycoplasma pneumoniae Large DNA Repetitive Elements RepMP1 Show Type Specific Organization among Strains

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is the smallest self-replicating bacterium with a streamlined genome of 0.81 Mb. Complete genome analysis revealed the presence of multiple copies of four large repetitive elements (designated RepMP1, RepMP2/3, RepMP4 and RepMP5) that are implicated in creating sequence variations among individual strains. Recently, we described RepMP1-associated sequence...

PdNi-coated manganite nanorods as catalyst for electrooxidation of methanol in alkaline medium

Palladium and Nickel (PdNi) were coated on the manganite nanorods (MN) by a in situ reduction method. The prepared nanocatalyst was characterized by powder X-ray diffractrogram (XRD), scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (SEM-EDS) and electrochemical studies. The XRD patterns and EDS measurements confirm the formation of nanocrystalline PdNi on...

Absence of free carrier and paramagnetism in cobalt-doped ZnO nanoparticles synthesized at low temperature using citrate sol–gel route

Cobalt-doped ZnO nanoparticles have been synthesized using a simple citrate sol–gel auto-combustion method. The XRD confirms nano-single phase and Wurtzite structure. Increased cobalt solubility from 15 to 20 % was observed in ZnO matrix due to low temperature synthesis. Room temperature paramagnetic contribution is observed for all the samples, since cobalt is a neutral dopant...

Cellular Vacuoles Induced by Mycoplasma pneumoniae CARDS Toxin Originate from Rab9-Associated Compartments

Recently, we identified an ADP-ribosylating and vacuolating cytotoxin in Mycoplasma pneumoniae designated Community Acquired Respiratory Distress Syndrome (CARDS) toxin. In this study we show that vacuoles induced by recombinant CARDS (rCARDS) toxin are acidic and derive from the endocytic pathway as determined by the uptake of neutral red and the fluid-phase marker, Lucifer...

Synthesis and Distribution of CARDS Toxin During Mycoplasma pneumoniae Infection in a Murine Model

Mice were infected with Mycoplasma pneumoniae and monitored for the synthesis and distribution of the unique adenosine diphosphate–ribosylating and vacuolating Community Acquired Respiratory Distress Syndrome (CARDS) toxin in bronchiolar lavage fluid (BALF) and lung. We noted direct relationships between the concentration of CARDS toxin and numbers of mycoplasma genomes in BALF...

Mycoplasma pneumoniae CARDS Toxin Exacerbates Ovalbumin-Induced Asthma-Like Inflammation in BALB/c Mice

Mycoplasma pneumoniae causes a range of airway and extrapulmonary pathologies in humans. Clinically, M. pneumoniae is associated with acute exacerbations of human asthma and a worsening of experimentally induced asthma in mice. Recently, we demonstrated that Community Acquired Respiratory Distress Syndrome (CARDS) toxin, an ADP-ribosylating and vacuolating toxin synthesized by M...

Fatal Outcomes in Family Transmission of Mycoplasma pneumoniae

Background. Mycoplasma pneumoniae continues to be a significant cause of community-acquired pneumonia and, on rare occasions, manifests as fulminant disease that leads to mortality, even in healthy individuals. Methods. We conducted a retrospective study on members of a family who were quarantined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2002 for respiratory failure...
