Introduction

I am presently working as Associate Professor at King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. After completed my Ph.D. (Botany; specialization in Plant Ecophysiology and Molecular Biology) from Jamia Hamdard, New Delhi, India in 2011, I have worked as Lecturer at the University of Kashmir, Srinagar for a short period. Later I joined Universiti Putra Malaysia, Selangor, Malaysia and worked there as Post Doctorate Fellow in 2012 and Fellow Researcher (Associate Prof.) from 2013-2016 respectively.
I have more than ten years of teaching and research experience in Plant Eco-Physiology, Biotechnology & Molecular biology, Medicinal plant research, Plant-Microbe-soil interactions as well as in Environmental studies. I am the recipient of several fellowships at both national and international levels, also I have served as the visiting Scientist at Fatih Universiti, Istanbul, Turkey as well as at Jinan University, Guangzhou, China. Currently, I am involved with a number of international research projects with different Govt. organizations.
So far, I have authored and edited more than 34 books with International publishers, including Springer Nature, Academic Press (Elsevier), CRC Press etc. I have also to my credit more than 74 research publications in peer-reviewed international journals and 50 book chapters in edited volumes with international publishers.
At present, I am serving the Editorial board member and reviewer of several high impact international Scientific Journals from Elsevier, Springer Nature, Taylor, Cambridge and Francis and Jhon Wiley Publishers. I am included in the advisory board of Cambridge Scholars Publishing, UK. I am also the Fellow of Plantae group from the American Society of Plant Biologists, Member of World Academy of Science, Member of International Society for Development and Sustainability, Japan and the Member, Asian Federation of Biotechnology, Korea. I have been listed in Marquis Who’s Who in the World, since 2014-2018.
Currently, I am engaged in studying the plant processes at Eco- physiological as well as molecular levels.

Cytotoxic allelochemicals induce ultrastructural modifications in Cassia tora L. and mitotic changes in Allium cepa L.: a weed versus weed allelopathy approach.

Protoplasma 2019 Jan 17. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Department of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science, King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, 21589, Saudi Arabia.

The stress induced by allelochemicals present in stem aqueous extract (SAE) of Nicotiana plumbaginifolia on alterations in growth, ultrastructure on Cassia tora L., and mitotic changes on Allium cepa L. were inspected. Application of SAE at different concentrations (0.5, 1, 2, and 4%) expressively reduced the growth of C. tora in terms of seedling length and dry biomass. Moreover, the ultrastructural variations induced in the epidermis of Cassia leaf (adaxial and abaxial surface) of 15-day-old saplings were analyzed through scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The variations noticed are rupturing and shrinking of cells along epidermis; damaged margins, extensively curled leaf apex along with the appearance of puff-like structures, grooves, and thread-like structures on the leaf surface. The epidermal cells of samples exposed to treatment no longer appear smooth relative to control, besides showing necrosis as well. Upon exposure to different concentrations of extract, A. cepa root tip cells showed aberrations in chromosome arrangement and disparity in the shape of the interphase and prophase nuclei along various phases of mitotic cycle as compared to control. The mitotic index (MI) showed a concentration-dependent decline in onion root tips exposed to SAE. The aberrations appearing frequently were formation of multinucleated cells, sticky metaphase and anaphase with bridges, sticky telophase, disturbed polarity, etc. The results also show the induction of elongated cells, giant cells, and cells with membrane damage by extract treatment. To our knowledge, this is the first gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis of the methanolic extract of N. plumbaginifolia stem. Overall, 62 compounds were reported, covering 99.61% of the entire constituents, which can be considered responsible for the allelopathic suppression of C. tora. The chief component was 4-tert-butylcalix[4]arene with the highest composition of 19.89%, followed by palmitic acid (12.25%), palmitoleic acid (8.23%), precocene 2 (7.53%), isophytyl acetate (4.01%), and betastigmasterol (3.95%).
