Comparative analysis of cyanobacterial superoxide dismutases to discriminate canonical forms
BackgroundSuperoxide dismutases (SOD) are ubiquitous metalloenzymes that catalyze the disproportion of superoxide to peroxide and molecular oxygen through alternate oxidation and reduction of theirExpand
Siderophore mediated uranium sequestration by marine cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus BDU 130911.
Four different marine cyanobacterial morphotypes were tested for their efficacy to produce siderophores in Fe minus [Fe(-)], Fe minus Uranium dosed [Fe(-)U(+)], and Fe dosed Uranium dosed [Fe(-)U(+)]Expand
Oxygen-free hydrogen production by the marine cyanobacterium Phormidium valderianum BDU 20041
Abstract To circumvent the co-production of oxygen during hydrogen photoproduction, certain physico-chemical conditions were manipulated. Then, under white light (intensity 5.5 μmol photon m−2 s−1,Expand
Molecular characterization of marine Cyanobacteria from the Indian subcontinent deduced from sequence analysis of the phycocyanin operon (cpcb-IGS-cpcA) and 16S-23S ITS region.
Molecular characterization of ten marine cyanobacterial isolates belonging to the order Oscillatoriales was carried out using the phycocyanin locus (cpcBA-IGS) and the 16S-23S internally transcribedExpand
Ability to use the diazo dye, C.I. Acid Black 1 as a nitrogen source by the marine cyanobacterium Oscillatoria curviceps BDU92191.
Ten different strains of marine cyanobacteria were tested for their ability to decolourise and degrade a recalcitrant diazo dye, C.I. Acid Black 1. Of them, Oscillatoria curvicepsBDU92191 was able toExpand
Genetic heterogeneity of the marine cyanobacterium Leptolyngbya valderiana (Pseudanabaenaceae) evidenced by RAPD molecular markers and 16S rDNA sequence data
The distribution and diversity patterns of the cosmopolitan marine cyanobacterium Leptolyngbya valderiana (Pseudanabaenaceae, Cyanobacteria) were studied. To asses the level of genetic diversity,Expand
Fate of few pesticide-metabolizing enzymes in the marine cyanobacterium Phormidium valderianum BDU 20041 in perspective with chlorpyrifos exposure
The marine cyanobacterium Phormidium valderianum BDU 20041 is able to dwell and grow in the presence of chlorpyrifos (O,O-diethyl-O-[3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridyl] phosphorothioate), a phosphorothioateExpand
Formulation of low-cost seawater medium for high cell density and high lipid content of Chlorella vulgaris BDUG 91771 using central composite design in biodiesel perspective
Abstract Microalgal biodiesel production depends on high biomass and lipid yielding strain grown in a low-cost medium. The present study had identified marine microalga Chlorella vulgaris BDUG 91771Expand
Homogeneous acid catalysed transesterification of marine microalga Chlorella sp. BDUG 91771 lipid – An efficient biodiesel yield and its characterization
An efficient lipid transesterification method for marine microalga Chlorella sp. BDUG 91771 has been ascertained. Among the homogeneous alkali (NaOH), homogeneous acid (H2SO4), heterogeneous alkaliExpand
Characterization of manganese superoxide dismutase from a marine cyanobacterium Leptolyngbya valderiana BDU20041
BackgroundCyanobacteria are recognized as the primordial organisms to grace the earth with molecular oxygen ~3.5 billion years ago as a result of their oxygenic photosynthesis. This laid a selectionExpand
