Insilico docking studies and evaluation of volatile oil of Zingiber officinale Rosc. and Aripiprazole for antidepressant activity

The objective of the study was to evaluate the volatile oil of Zingiber officinale Rosc. and Aripiprazole for antidepressant activity and to carry out the docking studies for their respective binding sites. Argus Lab 4.0.1 software (Mark A. Thompson, Planaria Software   LLC, and Seattle, WA, USA) was used to perform the docking studies and the elevated plus maze, forced swim...

Application of multiple displacement amplification in detection of five events of genetically modified organisms

In this study, multiple displacement amplification (MDA) was used for transgene detection, and proved to effectively improve the sensitivity of most fluorescence polymerase chain (PCR). Five events of genetically modified plants were chosen for detection in different plant species by MDA and real-time PCRs. Individual primer/probe systems based on each transgene target were used. The extracted DNA of each sample was...
