Cell growth curves for different cell lines and their relationship with biological activities

  The cellular-growth curves for distinct cell lines (tumor and non-tumor) were established, evaluating the population of doubling time (DT) and maximum growth rate (µmax). These curves define the growth characteristics for each cell line; they allow determination of the best time range for evaluating the effects of some biological compounds. Subsequently, the biological activities of three ethanolic...

Beta glucuronidase activity in early stages of rice seedlings and callus: A comparison with Escherichia coli beta glucuronidase expressed in the transgenic rice

We have chosen rice as a model crop to ascertain endogenous β-glucuronidase (family 79) activity and to differentiate the same from Escherichia coli based β-glucuronidase (family-2). The investigation dwells on characterizing endogenous β-glucuronidase (GUS) activity during the early stages of seed germination and from rice callus. Also, similar studies were made from homozygous transgenic...
