In vitro antioxidant activity and total phenolic content of endophytic fungi isolated from Eugenia jambolana Lam.
The results reveal that metabolites produced by endophytic fungi isolated from Eugenia jambolana can be a potential source of novel natural antioxidant compounds. Expand
Purification and characterization of a thermophilic cellulase from a novel cellulolytic strain, Paenibacillus barcinonensis.
The high catalytic activity and its stability to temperature, pH, surfactants, and metal ions indicated that the cellulase enzyme by MG7 is a good candidate for biotechnological applications. Expand
Antiplasmodial potential and quantification of aloin and aloe-emodin in Aloe vera collected from different climatic regions of India
Study showed significant correlation between quantities of both the anthraquinones used as marker compounds and EC50 values of the different Aloe vera extracts, which showed good antiplasmodial activity and also showed the presence of higher amount of aloin and aloe-emodin in comparison to collected from warmer climatic sites.

Glutathione biosynthesis in the yeast pathogens Candida glabrata and Candida albicans: essential in C. glabrata, and essential for virulence in C. albicans.
It is believed to be the first time that the enzyme γ-glutamyl cysteine synthase, the first enzyme of glutathione biosynthesis, was essential in C. glabrata, and its essentiality for virulence in Candida albicans, make the enzyme a strong candidate for antifungal development. Expand
Comprehensive genome-wide identification and expression profiling of foxtail millet [Setaria italica (L.)] miRNAs in response to abiotic stress and development of miRNA database
The present study provides novel insights onto the role of miRNAs in abiotic stress tolerance and would promisingly expedite research on post-transcriptional regulation of stress-related genes in millets and bioenergy grasses. Expand
Studies on biosurfactant from Oceanobacillus sp. BRI 10 isolated from Antarctic sea water
Abstract The search for new biosurfactant producing strains from uncommon or extreme microbial habitats has become increasingly important due to their biotechnological and environmental significance.Expand
Metabolic Pathways as Drug Targets: Targeting the Sulphur Assimilatory Pathways of Yeast and Fungi for Novel Drug Discovery
This chapter presents the current understanding of the sulphur assimilatory pathways in different pathogenic yeast and fungi, and discusses several targets that are currently being investigated or have the potential for antifungal development. Expand
Extracellular cold active lipase from the psychrotrophic Halomonas sp. BRI 8 isolated from the Antarctic sea water
An extracellular cold active lipase-producing psychrotrophic bacterium (BRI 8) was isolated from the Antarctic sea water sample. The 16s rRNA sequence study revealed that the isolate belongs to theExpand
