Rumen bacterium Pseudobutyrivibrio ruminis strain k3 utilized over 90% sucrose added to the growth medium as a sole carbon source. Zymographic studies of the bacterial cell extract revealed the presence of a single enzyme involved in sucrose digestion. Thin layer...


Insulin Signaling and Energy Homeostasis

Glucose metabolism is regulated by the opposing actions of insulin and glucagon. Insulin is released from pancreatic ß cells in response to high blood glucose levels and regulates glucose metabolism through its actions on muscle, liver, and adipose tissue.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
