Major Achievements

  • FSH & LH were isolated and purified from buffaloes pituitaries and developed bioassay for the same.
  • Biologically active PMSG were prepared from blood collected from pregnant mare and bioassay of PMSG was standardized.
  • Steroid impregnated intrauterine sponges suitable for goats were developed for the first time in India.
  • Antibodies against rbST were raised and ELISA was developed.
  • A 3D culture protocol developed for ex vivo preantral follicles culture in buffalo.
  • Method for estimation of steroids from fecal samples was standardized and found very use full for wild life.
  • A cryopreservation protocol for oocytes/embryos and stem cells have been developed.
  • Supplementation of sodium bicarbonate, KCl and Zinc sulphate were found to reduce summer stress in buffalo. Melatonin was found to produce heat stress reliving effect through interaction with hormones and acting as antioxidant.
  • HSP70.1 investigated as molecular biomarker of heat stress in goat and buffalo.
  • Mesenchymal stem cells were isolated & characterized from murine, caprine, bubaline and canine species from adult bone marrow, amniotic fluid, amniotic membrane, Wharton’s jelly, cord blood and MSCs were successfully used for clinical applications like paralysis, skin wounds and bone injury etc.
