Publish items in Sitecore programmatically using API
In Some scenarios if you would like to publish items in Sitecore programmatically using API from Master DB to web or pub Database then we can use the Sitecore Publishing API.
Sitecore has different types of publishing like Incremental, Full Publish, Single Item, Smart Publish. Use PublishMode in the publish options method to specify the type of the publish you need to achieve. If you choose Incremental publish mechanism you cannot set a root item as all items in the publish queue is published. Below is the sample code to publish an item.

private void PublishItem(Sitecore.Data.Items.Item item)
// The publishOptions determine the source and target database,
// the publish mode and language, and the publish date
Sitecore.Publishing.PublishOptions publishOptions =
System.DateTime.Now); // Create a publisher with the publishoptions
Sitecore.Publishing.Publisher publisher = new Sitecore.Publishing.Publisher(publishOptions);
// Choose where to publish from
publisher.Options.RootItem = item;
// Publish children as well?
publisher.Options.Deep = true;
// Do the publish!
