Night soil compost (NSC) has traditionally been a source of organic manure in north-western Himalaya. Lately, this traditional method is declining due to modernization, its unhygienic conditions and social apprehensions. Reduction in the age-old traditional practice has led to excessive usage of chemical fertilizers and shortage of water in the eco-sensitive region. Microbiological intervention was attempted to obtain bacterial consortia for accelerated degradation of human faeces in cold climate to improvise this traditional knowledge. Glutamicibacter arilaitensis LJH19, a psychrotrophic bacteria was identified as one such potential candidate for the proposed consortia. The bacterium was isolated from NSC of Lahaul valley and exhibited potential hydrolytic activities, the specific activities of amylase, cellulase and xylanase was observed as 186.76 U/mg, 21.85 U/mg and 11.31 U/mg respectively. Additionally, the strain possessed multiple plant growth-promoting (PGP) traits. The bacterium produced 166.11 mcg/ml indole acetic acid and 85.72 % siderophore units, and solubilized 44.76 mcg/ml phosphate. Whole genome sequence (3,602,821 bps) endorsed the cold adaptation, polysaccharide metabolism, PGP potential of the bacterium. Geno...Continue Reading

BioRxiv & MedRxiv Preprints

BioRxiv and MedRxiv are the preprint servers for biology and health sciences respectively, operated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Here are the latest preprint articles (which are not peer-reviewed) from BioRxiv and MedRxiv.

Amygdala: Sensory Processes

Amygdalae, nuclei clusters located in the temporal lobe of the brain, play a role in memory, emotional responses, and decision-making. Here is the latest research on sensory processes in the amygdala.

Brain Injury & Trauma

brain injury after impact to the head is due to both immediate mechanical effects and delayed responses of neural tissues.

Amygdala and Midbrain Dopamine

The midbrain dopamine system is widely studied for its involvement in emotional and motivational behavior. Some of these neurons receive information from the amygdala and project throughout the cortex. When the circuit and transmission of dopamine is disrupted symptoms may present. Here is the latest research on the amygdala and midbrain dopamine.

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.
