An antibacterial and antifungal antibiotic was isolated from the culture filtrate of Streptomyces sp. 201, and its structure was determined as 2-methyl-heptyl isonicotinate by extensive use of NMR spectroscopy. The compound exhibited marked antimicrobial activity against Bacillus subtilis, Shigella sp., Klebsiella sp., E. coli, Proteus mirabilis, and the(More)
Two plasmid-harboring strains ofMicrococcus sp. (M-36 and AG-43) degrade malathion and chlorpyriphos. Derivatives of the strains (SDS-36 and AO-43) treated with acridine orange and sodium dodecyl sulfate could not utilize malathion and chlorpyriphos for growth as the sole carbon source. Agarose gel electrophoresis of cell extracts of M-36 and AG-43 revealed(More)
Mixed bacterial culture consisting of three different strains ofMicrococcus sp. (AG 36, AG 94 and AG 98) and two strains ofPseudomonas sp. (AG 7 and AG 52) and its individual components was passed through a sand column and 25.5–92% of cell dry mass was found to be retained (adsorbed) on it. Incubation of sand soaked in mineral medium containing glucose as a(More)
Clotrimazole (CTZ) is a broad spectrum antimycotic agent known to be very effective locally for the treatment of fungal skin infections. The aim of this study was to study the effect of chitosan-coated microemulsion (CME) for topical delivery of CTZ and also evaluate its in vitro antifungal efficacy, ex vivo permeation and retention ability on the skin(More)
B. stearothermophilus strain AG-49, when cultivated in mineral medium in the presence of silica (SA), adhered to SA. Adhesion depended on age of culture, contact time and glucose concentration of the culture medium. Mid-exponential phase culture (5 h) required minimum contact time (30 min) for maximum adhesion. 0.6% glucose concentration was optimum.(More)
