Improving Upland Rice (Oryza Sativa L.) Perfomance through Enhanced Soil Fertility and Water Conservation Methods at Ukiriguru Mwanza, Tanzania

Mohamed Ibrahim Shemahonge, Cornel L Ryeyemum

The experiment was conducted at Agricutural Research Institute (ARI)–Ukiriguru Mwanza, Tanzania aiming at improving upland rice performance through enhanced soil fertility and water conservation methods. A split–split plot experiment in a randomized complete block design with three replications and three factors that were (a) upland rice cultivars (WAB 450, NERICA1 and NERICA4) (b) fertilizer types, (Urea 80Kg N/ha, farm yard manure 5 t/ha and control) (c) three water conservation methods (flat cultivation, open ridge and tie ridge were applied).

Body weight changes in broiler chicks fed different levels of zinc

Sabina Khanam

Zinc is one of the most abundant trace element in the earth crust. It is found in almost all foods but poultry, fish and meat are major source of zinc.Its primarily function is it acts as a catalyst in various enzyme systems. Humans expose to zinc via contaminated air, water and soil and by drinking beverages that has been stored in metal container.

Anti-cancer Activity of the Microorganism Saccharomyces boulardii in Probiotics

Aishwarya R, Jenifer Joseph

Cervical cancers, a common cancer that affect women, have around 500 new cases coming up every year. Although if detected early, it could be cured, chances are that it is still fatal. A few research studies claim that probiotics can fight against cancer, especially colorectal cancer. But not a lot of work has been done when it comes to cervical cancer.

Molecular docking studies of benzothiazole derivatives as polo-like kinase 1 (PLK1) inhibitors

Venkata Reddy Gorla, Rajasekhar Chekkara, Ethiraj Susithra, Sobha Rani Tenkayala

Polo-like kinase 1 (Plk1) is highly expressed in many types of cancer and regulates critical steps in mitotic progression. Plk1 is a promising target for the development of anticancer agents due to its importance in regulating cell-cycle progression, and several Plk1 inhibitors are currently undergoing clinical investigations/evaluations.

Rearrangement of a Benzofuran to a Benzopyran

Divya Tyagi

Investigation of an apparent 6-endo-dig cyclization reveals an unusual acid-catalyzed rearrangement of the initially formed benzofuran derivative. The possible mechanism of the novel rearrangement was also discussed. The construction of ring systems by intramolecular addition of an anionic center to a carbon-carbon pi-bond has attracted considerable attention in recent years. Various organometallic reagents have been used resulting in the formation of cycloalkenyl containing products.
