|Abstract||A wide range of aromatic compounds has been shown to amplify phleomycin-induced cell killing in Escherichia coli. They include acridines, acridinium chlorides, dihydroanthracenes, anthracenes, dianthracenes, phenanthridinium salts, phenazinium chlorides, phenoxazones, triphenyl methane dyes, benzoquinolizinium chloride, diphenylmethane derivatives, stilbene and diphenyl derivatives. Low concentrations of these amplifiers also amplified the DNA breakage and degradation effects of phleomycin. The minimum structural specification for activity as an amplifying agent is suggested. A representative sample of compounds effective as amplifiers of phleomycin also amplified the antibiotic effects of bleomycins B4 and B6. The amplifiers described are known to vary in their ability to penetrate and accumulate in different organisms or tissues. This suggests the possibility of developing a series of antibiotic regimes using these amplifiers (or the large number of derivative compounds also likely to be active) where the therapeutic index is determined by the properties of the amplifier chosen rather than of the phleomycin or the bleomycin.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
