Antimicrobial activity of spices.
Spices have been shown to possess medicinal value, in particular, antimicrobial activity. This study compares the sensitivity of some human pathogenic bacteria and yeasts to various spice extracts… Expand
Involvement of lignin peroxidase, manganese peroxidase and laccase in degradation and selective ligninolysis of wheat straw
Some white-rot fungi have been studied to evaluate their potential to degrade wheat straw with specific reference to their ligninolytic ability and associated enzymes, viz. lignin peroxidase,… Expand
Comparison of two assay procedures for lignin peroxidase.
The most widely accepted assay for detecting lignin peroxidase, based on the oxidation of veratryl alcohol to veratraldehyde, suffers from some drawbacks. At 310 nm, the wavelength at which the assay… Expand
Antibacterial and phytochemical screening of Anethum graveolens, Foeniculum vulgare and Trachyspermum ammi
BackgroundAnethum graveolens Linn., Foeniculum vulgare Mill. and Trachyspermum ammi L. are widely used traditional medicinal plants to treat various ailments. To provide a scientific basis to… Expand
Laccase production and wood degradation by a white-rot fungus Daedalea flavida
Abstract A comparative study has been conducted on seven white rot fungi to investigate their abilities to produce laccase and selectively degrade lignin. Laccase was produced constitutively on the… Expand
Antibacterial activity of some Indian medicinal plants
Aqueous extracts of ten medicinal plants were examined for their antibacterial potential against some reference strains of human pathogenic bacteria. Anethum graveolens, Elettaria cardamomum,… Expand
Antistaphylococcal and biofilm inhibitory activities of acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid from Boswellia serrata
BackgroundBoswellic acids are pentacyclic triterpenes, which are produced in plants belonging to the genus Boswellia. Boswellic acids appear in the resin exudates of the plant and it makes up 25-35%… Expand
Laccase production by some white rot fungi under different nutritional conditions
Abstract The role of laccase in ligninolysis has been disputed but it still seems to have an important place in the reactions. Trametes versicolor has been the organism of choice for laccase… Expand
Changes in biochemical constituents of paddy straw during degradation by white rot fungi and its impact on in vitro digestibility
Aims: To improve the digestibility of paddy straw to be used as animal feed by means of selective delignification using white rot fungi.
Production of lignocellulolytic enzymes and enhancement of in vitro digestibility during solid state fermentation of wheat straw by Phlebia floridensis.
Degradation by white rot fungi has the potential to increase digestibility of wheat straw and thus improve its value as animal feed. To optimize conditions for production of lignocellulolytic enzymes… Expand
