ABSTRACT: Polyunsaturated fatty acids are essential to human health, in particular ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. However, they cannot be produced by the body, and only can be obtained from the dietary sources such as vegetable oils, fish oils, and microalgae. Polyunsaturated fatty acids possess antioxidant, anti-inflammation and antibacterial activities, and have positive health effects in the treatment of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and obesity. This review summarizes current knowledge about dietary sources and bioactivities of polyunsaturated fatty acids, and special attention is paid to the bioactivities.

ABSTRACT: Among the single treatments tested under in vivo addition of well decomposed FYM 20 tons per hectare as soil amendment recorded minimum wilt incidence of 3.75, 24.76 and 48.25 % at flowering, fruit formation and ripening stages of chilli crop, respectively, with 61.31 q ha-1 fruit yield as compared to check (42.50 q ha-1). Dual application of Trichoderma viride 0.16 t ha-1 + FYM 20 t ha-1 recorded minimum wilt incidence of 3.10, 22.16 and 40.20 % at above respectively stages with 62.75 q ha-1 fruit yield as compared to check. Combined application of delayed irrigation + FYM + T. viride recorded significantly least wilt incidence of 2.95, 20.39 and 30.75 % at flowering, fruit formation and ripening stages, respectively, with 64.50 q ha-1 increase in fruit yield as compared to check. The application of all treatments and their combinations also resulted in overall improvement of fruit number and yield of crop.

ABSTRACT: In this paper, we introduce mathematical aspect of recruitment and derecruitment mechanism of blood vessels acting in such a way as to preserve physiological values of the capillary pressure and perspective of pressure drop effect which has been pointed out by a series of studies documenting a paradoxical vasoconstriction during ischaemia.

ABSTRACT: The present study deals with nutritional composition and phytochemical evaluation of Ficus racemosa Linn. Tamil Nadu has an ancient heritage of traditional knowledge and utility of medicinal plants. Today the large numbers of drugs in used are derived from plants. These are rich in phytochemicals, essential nutrients and therapeutic importance of plants. The phytochemicals such as; alkaloids, carbohydrates, glycosides, terpenoids, saponins, phenols, xanthoproteic, flavonoids and tannins were analysed in leaves. Nutritional composition such as; protein, total lipids, ascorbic acid, carotenoids, total phenols, anthocyanin, lycopene, total carbohydrate, starch, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar, fat, fiber, minerals, calcium, iron sodium, phosphorus, potassium were analysed in the fruits. The plant phytochemicals and mineral contents have cured various types of disease.
