Increased incidence of abiotic stresses impacting adversely plant growth and productivity in major crops is being witnessed all over the world.

Increased incidence of abiotic stresses impacting adversely plant growth and productivity in major crops is being witnessed all over the world. Therefore, as a result of such stress elements, plant growth under the stress conditions will be less than the non-stress conditions. Growing concerns and global demand for right, environmentally-friendly techniques exist to reduce the adverse effects of plant stress. Under such stressful conditions,...

Bio-diversity: an effective safety net against environmental pollution.

Biodiversity is the feedstock for the biotechnology trade. Hence, the conservation, enhancement and sustainable and equitable use of biodiversity must be accorded excessive precedence in all nationwide atmosphere safety programmes. Lichens function helpful indicators of environmental well being. Similarly, a number of blue inexperienced algae assist to sequester salt from water. There is want for the extra widespread use of such biomonitoring...

Long-lasting insecticidal nets retain bio-efficacy after 5 years of storage: implications for malaria control programmes.

Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) are probably the most sustainable and efficient malaria control software at present out there. Global targets are for 80% of the inhabitants dwelling in malaria endemic areas to have entry to (personal) and use a LLIN. However, present entry to LLINs in endemic areas is 56% as a result of system inefficiencies and finances limitations. Thus, cost-effective approaches to maximise entry to efficient LLINs in...

Prevention of mosquito nuisance among urban populations in Burkina Faso.

This paper addresses the issues of mosquito management in urban areas of Burkina Faso. The important goals are to look at related socio-cultural features in relation to a mosquito management intervention utilizing a biolarvicide with important emphasis on native perceptions of mosquito nuisance and current practices of mosquito management, together with the price of protecting measures at family degree. This is the report of an...

Dual Oxidase-Derived Reactive Oxygen Species Against Bacillus thuringiensis and Its Suppression by Eicosanoid Biosynthesis Inhibitors.

Two entomopathogenic micro organism, Xenorhabdus and Photorhabdus, are identified to have the ability to synthesize and secrete eicosanoid biosynthesis inhibitors (EIBs) that may improve pathogenicity of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) towards completely different goal bugs. Such enhancements could be defined by the suppression of immune responses within the hemocoel by EIBs. However, little is thought in regards to the...

Interference RNA for hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis

For the first time, the FDA (the US administration responsible for approving new drugs and equivalent to the European EMA) has approved an interference RNA-based therapy to treat hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR).ATTR is a rare disease that produces the accumulation of erroneous proteins in different organs, tissues or nerves, making it difficult to function and causing multiple symptoms that worsen the patient's quality of life.What...

What are vaccines?

This week we will talk about vaccines, something that we are all used to, but that we do not know or do not understand exactly.Would you know how to define the term vaccine, what they contain, what they are used for or what are the existing types? If not, I recommend that you continue reading.I could not write this post without telling you the curious way in which the vaccination story began. In 1768, the doctor Edwar Jenner studied the case of...

Genetically modified immunotherapy and virus to treat glioblastoma

Although therapeutic strategies based on either the use of viruses or immunotherapy have already been tested in patients, the combination of both strategies has never been tested in humans before. Genetically modified viruses and immunotherapy are to be used in patients with glioblastoma, the most aggressive brain tumor.What is glioblastoma? What is this methodology based on? What is the result of combining both therapeutic strategies?...

Prime Editing: Improving the CRISPR-Cas9 system

If we all thought that the CRISPR-Cas9 system was going to be the greatest achievement of science in the field of genetic engineering, we were wrong. Prime editing, the improved version of CRISPR, allows you to edit gene sequences in one step, and could potentially solve 90% of genetic diseases. What does it consist of? What is the difference between them? What could it be useful for? KEEP READING!I think the CRISPR-Cas9 system has been, and...

Hot air stream reduces cytotoxicity of light-cured calcium hydroxide based cements

The light-cured calcium hydroxide based cements have incomplete polymerization and unconverted monomers may cause pulp cell harm. The intention of this research was to guage the affect of a heat and scorching air stream on the cytotoxicity of light-cured calcium hydroxide based cements. The supplies Dycal (standard cement), Biocal, Hidrox-Cal, and Ultra-Blend Plus (light-cured calcium hydroxide cements) had been submitted to cytotoxicity...
