Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) is a highly toxic fungal metabolite having carcinogenic, mutagenic and teratogenic effects on human and animal health. Accidental feeding of aflatoxin-contaminated rice straw may be detrimental for ruminant livestock and can lead to transmission of this toxin or its metabolites into the milk of dairy cattle. White-rot basidiomycetous(More)
Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) produced by Aspergillus flavus is known to have carcinogenic and teratogenic effects on animal health. Accidental feeding of AFB1-contaminated rice straw may be detrimental to dairy cattle. White-rot basidiomycetous fungus Pleurotus ostreatus can grow on different agronomic wastes by synthesizing different ligninolytic enzymes. These(More)
Aflatoxin is a toxic secondary metabolite produced by different species of Aspergillus in food crops when stored under hot and humid conditions. Among the various aflatoxins produced by fungi aflatoxin B1 has been proved to have carcinogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic and immunosuppressive effects. They often contaminate human food, animal feed and(More)
Benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) is a ubiquitous environmentally significant compound which due to its recalcitrant nature is often referred as persistent bioaccumulative toxin. The present study was carried on to determine the degradation potentials of three natural isolates of the white rot fungi Pleurotus ostreatus towards BaP, of which isolate PO-3 showed promising(More)
Actinomycetes play an important role in the decomposition of various organic materials and replenish the supply of nutrients in the soil. They also produce many secondary metabolites possessing antimicrobial properties. The present study was conducted to determine the enzymeproducing and antibacterial potential of soil actinomycetes isolated from Kuruva(More)
Chitinases play an important role in the decomposition of chitin and results in the utilization of chitin as a renewable resource. A total of 18 chitinolytic bacteria were isolated from the sand sample. Following primary and secondary screening in colloidal chitin medium, strain CBC-5 demonstrated the highest chitinolytic activity and was selected for(More)
The present study was aimed at optimization, production and partial purification of lipases from Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans and Aspergillus flavus. Various nutritional and physical parameters affecting lipase production such as carbon and nitrogen supplements, pH, temperature, agitation speed and incubation time were studied. Refined sunflower(More)
Everywhere recordkeeping is very essential for future need. This may be required for any audit purposes, legal issues and forgetting any incident. Record keeping is a specialized area in every hospital that is handled by specialized medical records officer for proper management of all important documents for long time preservation purposes.

This paper considers control of an elastic robotic arm of two links based on nonlinear inversion and pole assignment for stabilization. The design is done in two steps. First, based on nonlinear inversion, a nonlinear controller is designed for the trajectory control of the joint angles using joint torquers. Although, the inverse controller accomplishes(More)
An extracellular lipase with 23,666.66 U/ml/min activity was produced by Aspergillus tamarii JGIF06 under submerged fermentation in mineral salt medium containing coconut oil (2.5 % v/v), tryptone (2 % w/v) and ammonium chloride (2 % w/v), with initial pH of 5 ± 0.2, incubated at 25 °C for 7 days on a rotary shaker at 120 rpm. A 7.9-fold increase in(More)
