Phylogenetic analysis of isolated biofuel yeasts based on 5.8S-ITS rDNA and D1/D2 26S rDNA sequences
Abstract The utilization of agro-industrial wastes such as whey as raw materials for the production of bio-ethanol is gaining importance as a result of the attractiveness of renewable fuelExpand
Degradation of natural rubber latex by new Streptomyces labedae strain ASU-03 isolated from Egyptian soil
The first report about the degradation of Ficus elastic by S. labedae, isolated from Egyptian soil was reported, demonstrating that the use of a rpoB gene-based method gives a better resolution in the species level identification. Expand
Incidence, clinical presentation, and demographic factors associated with oral cancer patients in the southern region of Saudi Arabia: A 10-year retrospective study
The incidence of oral cancer in Southern Saudi Arabia is significantly low when compared to similar studies conducted elsewhere, and Tongue remains to be the site with the highest incidence which correlates with similar findings in other regions of the world. Expand
Antifungal mechanism of Rhodotorula mucilaginosa and Aureobasidium sp. nov. isolated from Cerbera manghas L. against the growth of destructive molds in postharvested apples.
This study indicated that competition between nutrients occurs between pathogenic molds and under-yeast in vitro and in vivo conditions and may help elucidate the 'killer' activity and interaction with the pathogen cells and the bio-product production using Rhodotorula mucilaginosa and Aureoubasidium namibiae strains to control postharvest diseases.

Yeast a potential bio-agent: future for plant growth and postharvest disease management for sustainable agriculture
The application of yeasts as biological agents in different sectors of sustainable farming practices is highlighted to highlight the importance of beneficial microbial diversity and natural competitors in the current agricultural system. Expand
Biological activities of some Acacia spp. (Fabaceae) against new clinical isolates identified by ribosomal RNA gene-based phylogenetic analysis.
Investigated plants and chemical compounds present could be used as promising antibacterial agents against isolated pathogenic bacteria using agar well diffusion methods and demonstrated that the results demonstrated that. Expand
Molecular genetic identification of yeast strains isolated from egyptian soils for solubilization of inorganic phosphates and growth promotion of corn plants.
Yeast strains isolated from soils taken from different locations in Egypt were tested for their P-solubilizing activities and the highest Psolubilization efficiency was demonstrated by isolate PSY- 4, which was identified as Saccharomyces cerevisiae by a sequence analysis of the variable D1/D2 domain of the 26S rDNA.

Cysteine‐rich antimicrobial peptides from plants: The future of antimicrobial therapy
The cysteine‐rich AMPs have opened new avenues for the use of plants as biofactories for the production of antimicrobials and can be considered as promising antimicrobial drugs in biotherapeutics. Expand
16S rRNA gene sequences analysis of Ficus elastica rubber latex degrading thermophilic Bacillus strain ASU7 isolated from Egypt
A thermophilic Bacillus strain ASU7 was isolated from soil sample collected from Assiut governorate in Upper Egypt on latex rubber-containing medium and identified as Bacillusamyloliquefaciens, able to utilize Ficus elastica rubber latex as a sole source for carbon and energy. Expand
Screening and genetic identification of acidic and neutral protease-producing yeasts strains by 26S rRNA gene sequencing
This is the first report of the discovery and isolation of local, powerful yeasts producing acidic and neutral protease enzymes from the Abha region, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Expand
