    • Abstract


      Using an antibody raised in the rabbit to ovine leutenizing hormone β subunit coupled to activated cellulose, a solid phase radioimmunoassay to detect early pregnancy in the South Indian bonnet monkey has been developed. Non-specific inhibition due to serum was eliminated by inclusion of new born calf serum in the assay tubes. The assay is simple, needs only one centrifugation and can be completed in 6 h at room temperature with no false positive results.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
