Coral reefs are the most biodiverse and biologically productive of all marine ecosystems. Corals harbor diverse and abundant prokaryotic groups. However, little is known about the diversity of coral-associated microorganisms. We used molecular techniques to identify and compare the culturable bacterial assemblages associated with the soft coral Sarcophyton(More)
In vitro screening for anti-acetylcholiesterase, anti-oxidant, anti-glucosidase, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effect of three traditional medicinal plants In this study we investigated the phytoconstituents Calluna vulgaris, Ferula hermonis and Tribulus terrestris, and then assessed their possible biological activities by using standard methods.

Malolactate fermentation (MLF), which is known to decreases total acidity and improves the stability and quality of cider is conducted by Oenococcus oeni; the principal microorganism responsible for MLF under stress conditions. Understanding O. oeni physiology in stress conditions can be used to generate tools based on molecular and physiological approaches(More)
Six isolates with phenol degrading ability were obtained from marine sediments by enrichment procedures and an isolate, AM4, was identified as Alcaligenes sp. by 16S rDNA sequencing. The Plackett-Burman design was applied to estimate the significance of culture medium components and conditions for phenol degradation by Alcaligenes sp. AM4. The resulting(More)
