Exploitation of marine bacteria for production of gold nanoparticles
BackgroundGold nanoparticles (AuNPs) have found wide range of applications in electronics, biomedical engineering, and chemistry owing to their exceptional opto-electrical properties. BiologicalExpand
Resolving the Colletotrichum siamense species complex using ApMat marker
Colletotrichum gloeosporioides sensu lato has been associated with anthracnose in diverse commercial crops. It is now established that C. gloeosporioides sensu lato comprises 33 phylogenetic speciesExpand
Characterization of two antimicrobial peptides produced by a halotolerant Bacillus subtilis strain SK.DU.4 isolated from a rhizosphere soil sample
A bacterial strain producing two antimicrobial peptides was isolated from a rhizosphere soil sample and identified as Bacillus subtilis based on both phenotypic and 16S rRNA gene sequenceExpand
Lactic acid bacteria isolated from yak milk show probiotic potential
Probiotic industries strive for new, efficient and promising probiotic strains that impart a positive impact on consumer health. Challenges are persisting in isolation, screening, and selection ofExpand
Lactobacillus plantarum MTCC 9510 supplementation protects from chronic unpredictable and sleep deprivation‐induced behaviour, biochemical and selected gut microbial aberrations in mice
Here, we evaluated any beneficial effects of a potential probiotic bacterial strain (Lactobacillus plantarum MTCC 9510) in two different stress paradigms in mice.
Micrococcus lactis sp. nov., isolated from dairy industry waste.
A Gram-positive, yellow-pigmented, actinobacterial strain, DW152(T), was isolated from a dairy industry effluent treatment plant. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that strain DW152(T)Expand
Genome sequence of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. punicae strain LMG 859.
We report the 4.94-Mb genome sequence of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. punicae strain LMG 859, the causal agent of bacterial leaf blight disease in pomegranate. The draft genome will aid in comparativeExpand
Nitrincola nitratireducens sp. nov. isolated from a haloalkaline crater lake.
The novel, cream coloured, Gram-negative-staining, rod-shaped, motile bacteria, designated strains AK23(T) and AK28, were isolated from sediment samples collected from Lonar Lake, Buldhana district,Expand
Genome sequence of Xanthomonas citri pv. mangiferaeindicae strain LMG 941.
We report the 5.1-Mb genome sequence of Xanthomonas citri pv. mangiferaeindicae strain LMG 941, the causal agent of bacterial black spot in mango. Apart from evolutionary studies, the draft genomeExpand
Isolation and characterization of diverse antimicrobial lipopeptides produced by Citrobacter and Enterobacter
BackgroundIncreasing multidrug-resistance in bacteria resulted in a greater need to find alternative antimicrobial substances that can be used for clinical applications or preservation of food andExpand
