|Abstract||The in vivo incorporation of tritiated thymidine into the chromosomes of a patient with acute leukemia was investigated. Ten mc of tritiated thymidine was injected intravenously. 50.6% of the mitotic figures (out of a total count of 420 mitoses) showed evidence of labeling: owing to the experimental conditions, tagged mitotic figures could only be found in the cells that had incorporated the precursor in the final stages of the synthetic period, whereas the unlabeled figures correspond to cells that were past the S stage at the time of labeling. From the results it was concluded that: duplication of DNA follows not a randdom course but a particular time sequence not only in normal blood cells but also in acute leukemia cells. The time sequence presents the same features in euploid cells as in aneuploid cells. Incorporation of the DNA precursor was also achieved by the extra-chromosomes. The synthetic phase of the Y chromosome in the present case of acute leukemia differed from that of the small acrocentric chromosomes. The ratio of labeled to non-labeled mitotic figures suggested the possibility that the post-synthetic period is shorter in vivo than in vitro. (P.C.H.)|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed 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 being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, 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 being developed at 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 Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
