An enzyme-based drug, L-asparaginase, was produced by Nocardia levis MK-VL_113 isolated from laterite soils of Guntur region. Cultural parameters affecting the production of L-asparaginase by the strain were optimized. Maximal yields of L-asparaginase were recorded from 3-day-old culture grown in modified asparagine-glycerol salts broth with initial pH 7.0(More)
Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder caused by antibody-mediated attack against skeletal muscle nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (AchR) at neuromuscular junction. A close relationship exists between heat shock proteins (HSPs) and numerous autoimmune diseases. HSPs are over expressed to protect the host against various insults. Antibodies to(More)
A potent actinobacterial strain isolated from the marine samples of Bheemunipatnam beach, Visakhapat-nam, India, was identified as Rhodococcus sp. VLD-10 using the conventional and genomic (16S rRNA) approaches. Bioactive compounds responsible for the antimicro-bial activity of the strain were elucidated by cultivating the strain VLD-10 in a modified yeast(More)
