Minor Research

RESEARCH PROJECTS UNDERTAKEN DURING THE LAST FIVE YEARS

  • DEPARTMENT OF BIOCHEMISTRY

Research Activities of the department: The department is working on the isolation of certain active molecules like phenolic (free and bound, both water soluble and insoluble), starch (oligosaccharides) and small quantities of proteins from Millets. However, the active constituents’ data and their characterization; Immuno-modulation is still a grey area of research and also on In vivo modulation of LPS induced leukotrienes generation and oxidative stress by Sesame lignans.

The UGC has sanctioned one Minor Research project to carry out the research activity on the topic.

  • DEPARTMENT OF ZOOLOGY

Research Activities of the department: A minor research was taken up to study the butterfly diversity, their anatomy & behaviours in and around Mysore. A major research project on biology of female sperm storage in garden lizard is taken up.

         The most important objective of the major project is to unravel the mechanism/s underlying the long-term female sperm storage, in the oviduct, in a viable and motile condition in Indian garden lizard, Calotes versicolor. Histological, histochemical, biochemical and ultra structural studies (TEM) were adopted. A protein of 50KD was isolated from the oviduct (sperm storage tubules) by Flushing & using saline. It was interesting to note that both the crude and purified form of this protein retarded the motility of epididymal sperm in a reversible fashion. Presently work is in progress to characterise this protein and decode the mechanism of this retardation. The results of these studies can help us to devise better strategies for handling the modern problems in the field of reproductive biology. It may also help us to carry out efforts for conservation of endangered species.
