Animal Cell Culture and Molecular Biology

  • Preparation of cell culture media and sterility testing.
  • Maintenance of various mammalian and cancerous cell Lines.
  • Primary culture of neonatal as well as adult cardiomyocytes, immune cells (thymocytes and neuronal culture.
  • Cell culture process optimization (Revival, Harvesting, Subculture) in various size cell culture vessels including T-25, T-75.
  • Cryopreservation and preparation of master and working cell banks.
  • Isolation of total RNA and genomic DNA from mammalian cell lines as well as animal tissues.

Experience

Summary

  • Heading a team in work and research of Halloysite nanotubes resulting in numerous articles authored and published regarding HNTs.
  • Recent study entitled 'Halloysite nanotubes - An efficient 'nano-support' for the immobilization of ą-amylase' shows experience in the field of enzyme immobilization on HNTs: Here functionalized HNT has been utilized for the immobilization purpose.
  • Carried out a study to understand the conduct of HNT with the DNA intercalator Acridine Orange. The results presented (paper-'Study-behavior of HnT with DNA intercalator Acridine Orange') conclude that the degree of intercalation can be reduced in the presence of the HNT setting.
  • The study of Gold nanoparticle (AuNP) and HNT based composite; used to study its interaction with DNA. This study confirmed the adsorption of DNA on HNT-AuNPs composites. (Paper Authored) 'Interaction - (DNA) with Halloysite Nanotube (Gold Nanoparticle composites)' presented the possibility of using HNT as support matrices for the attachment of AuNPs and its further use in biosensor development
  • Similar study of silver nanoparticles-HNT composite, to detect the DNA damage; showed a possibility of using AgNP-HNT composite for enhancement of shelf life of AgNPs along with its further applications in biological and medical fields.
