|Abstract||The aim of the study was to ascertain whether Ce, a lanthanide that has been implicated in the pathogenesis of tropical endomyocardial fibrosis, interferes with the biosynthetic repertoire of the cardiac muscle in vivo. Female Sprague-Dawley rats received Ce chloride iv at 1.3 mg/kg body wt.; controls received an equal volume of physiological saline. Rates of protein synthesis and transcription in cardiac muscle, measured in terms of incorporation of (H-3)-phenylalanine and (H-3)-uridine, respectively, into trichloroacetic acid-insoluble material were found to be significantly higher in Ce-treated animals. As low levels of Ce were earlier shown to stimulate collagen as well as noncollagen protein synthesis in cardiac fibroblasts in vitro, the stimulatory effect of the element in vivo reported here supports the speculation that it may influence the expression of proteins Like collagen in the heart and contribute to their accumulation as in endomyocardial fibrosis.|

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.
