The Confluence of Heavy Metal Biooxidation and Heavy Metal Resistance: Implications for Bioleaching by Extreme Thermoacidophiles
Here, extreme thermoacidophiles are examined from the perspectives of biodiversity, heavy metal biooxidation, metal resistance mechanisms, microbe-solid interactions, and application of these archaea in biomining operations.
Uranium extremophily is an adaptive, rather than intrinsic, feature for extremely thermoacidophilic Metallosphaera species
The results point to uranium extremophily as an adaptive, rather than intrinsic, feature for Metallosphaera species, driven by environmental factors.
Transcriptomes of the Extremely Thermoacidophilic Archaeon Metallosphaera sedula Exposed to Metal “Shock” Reveal Generic and Specific Metal Responses
ABSTRACT The extremely thermoacidophilic archaeon Metallosphaera sedula mobilizes metals by novel membrane-associated oxidase clusters and, consequently, requires metal resistance strategies. This
Seaweed extract: biostimulator of plant defense and plant productivity
Seaweed extract is more useful than chemical fertilizer because of its bio-decomposable, non-toxic and eco-friendly property.
Global-level population genomics reveals differential effects of geography and phylogeny on horizontal gene transfer in soil bacteria
A global-level hierarchical sampling scheme is used to comprehensively characterize the evolutionary relationships and distributional limitations of the nitrogen-fixing bacterial symbionts of the crop chickpea, finding that diverse Mesorhizobium taxa perform symbiosis with chickPEa and have largely overlapping global distributions.
Trichoderma-mediated biocontrol and growth promotion in plants: an endophytic approach
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.
Effect of N,N Coordination and RuII Halide Bond in Enhancing Selective Toxicity of a Tyramine-Based RuII (p-Cymene) Complex.
The studies showed that complex 2 bearing N,N coordination with an iodido leaving group shows selective in vitro cytotoxicity against the pancreatic cancer cell line MIA PaCa-2 but is less toxic to triple-negative breast cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, and the normal human foreskin fibroblasts.
