Area of specialization/awards/achievements:
 

1. Reproduction and Health Management by melatonin:
The pineal gland is an integral part of strategic regulation of seasonal functions viz. immunity and reproduction in Indian tropical animals (birds – Perdicula asiatica and mammals- Funambulus pennanti, Mesocricetus auratus, Capra hircus) . The pineal hormone melatonin exerts anti-gonadotropic effects and acts as nature’s contraceptive but regulates gestational physiology and foetal development. The postnatal transfer of maternal melatonin through milk is helpful in behavioural (diurnal/nocturnal) adjustments and sexual development of the offspring.
2. Signal transduction pathway of melatonin in reproduction and immune regulation:
Melatonin, as an immunoenhancer potentiates the physiological response of the immune cells via cytokine release along with its anti-apoptotic and antioxidant actions. Melatonin is the major temporal synchronizer, via SCN maintains the immune adaptability in a rhythmic manner by activation of melatonin receptors MT1/MT2 present on the reproductive and immune cells. The signal transduction of melatonin via its receptor MT1/MT2 utilizes and Ca+2-IP3/DAG pathway suggesting co-evolution of reproduction and immunity in seasonal breeders. The trade-off relation between reproduction and immunity mediated by melatonin suggest that it has high adaptive value for seasonal breeders.
(3) Nano vs bulk phytochemicals in protection of phototoxicity (UV-R/sunlight mediated non melanoma skin cancer) Melatonin protects from radiations (UV-A/B/C, LET, ?-rays) and the drug (antibiotics/phenylhydrazine/quinolphos etc.) induced toxicity and immune suppression by preventing free radical generation and enhancing anti-oxidant enzyme activity via RORa. Recently, synthesis and in vitro evaluation of melatonin entrapped PLA nanoparticles ameliorated oxidative stress of T-lymphocytes.
