A Gram-negative, non-motile bacterial strain that formed straight rods and straw yellow colonies, designated FCS-5(T), was isolated from a marine sediment from the Arabian Sea. The isolate exhibited most of the phenotypic properties expected for a member of the genus Flavobacterium. The major fatty acids were iso-C(15:0), iso-C(17:0) 3-OH, C(17:1)ω9c and(More)
A yellow-pigmented, Gram-negative, aerobic, non-motile, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped-bacterium, LE124(T), was isolated from a hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) dumpsite located in Lucknow, India. The type strain LE124(T) grew well with hexachlorocyclohexane as a sole carbon source, degrading it within 24 h of incubation. Phylogenetic analysis of strain LE124(T)(More)
A Gram-positive, pinkish-orange pigmented, coccoid strain, FCS-11T was isolated from a marine sediment sample taken from Kochi fort area, Kerala, India and subjected to polyphasic taxonomic study. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of the strain was determined and the results of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that the strain FCS-11T should be assigned to(More)
Strain L15T, a Gram-negative, motile, orange colored bacterium was isolated from pond soil in the surrounding area of a hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) dump site at Ummari village in Lucknow, India. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that strain L15T belongs to the family Hyphomicrobiaceae in the order Rhizobiales. Strain L15T showed(More)
A yellow-pigmented bacterial strain, designated LL01(T), was isolated from hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH)-contaminated soil at Spolana Neratovice, a former Czech producer of lindane. A neighbour-joining tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain LL01(T) occupied a distinct phylogenetic position in the Sphingobium cluster, showing highest(More)
Intra-aortic balloon pump counterpulsation (IABPC) has been used in various forms for decades. The change in physiology brought about by their use is conceptually appealing in managing cardiogenic shock and mechanical complications of myocardial infarction. A common myth is that this method of managing acute cardiological emergencies is to be limited to the(More)
Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7, a gram-negative bacteria identified as a foodborne pathogen causing severe disease is of great concern worldwide. The pathogenicity of E. coli O157:H7 is due to the presence of some virulence factors and its ability to form biofilm which resist antimicrobial compounds, withstand harsh environmental(More)
There is an increasing trend in the food industry on the Listeria monocytogenes biofilm formation and inhibition. This is attributed to its easy survival on contact surfaces, resistance to disinfectants or antibiotics and growth under the stringent condition used for food processing and preservation thereby leading to food contamination products by direct(More)
Neurodegenerative diseases are considered a serious life-threatening issue regardless of age. Resulting nerve damage progressively affects important activities, such as movement, coordination, balance, breathing, speech and the functioning of vital organs. Reports on the subject have concluded that neurodegenerative disease can be caused by mutations of(More)
A Gram-staining-positive, aerobic, cocco-bacilli-shaped, non-motile, non-spore forming, cream colored strain bacterium (strain MNA4(T) ) was isolated from hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) contaminated soil. Strain MNA4(T) showed the highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of 97.47% with type species of the newly defined genus Bhargavaea cecembensis.(More)
