Hydrogen sulphide, toxic at high concentrations, is an important part of out physiology at very low concentrations. A sensor that is sensitive enough to detect the changes in its concentrations are important in the diagnosis of many diseases. Indian researchers have now found a way, using the chromophore of a fluorescent protein.
Researchers from CSIR-IICT, CCMB and A U college of Pharmaceutical have something sweet to tell people suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Steviol glycoside from Stevia rebaudiana is a good supplement therapy.
Cashew nut factories in India now have more capacity than the nuts they can churn out. Farmers are not happy with the returns on investment. Here is a mini-review on recent discoveries that may change the situation.
