Bacterial endophyte Sphingomonas sp. LK11 produces gibberellins and IAA and promotes tomato plant growth
Plant growth promoting endophytic bacteria have been identified as potential growth regulators of crops. Endophytic bacterium, Sphingomonas sp. LK11, was isolated from the leaves of TephrosiaExpand
Biosorption of chromium onto native and immobilized sugarcane bagasse waste biomass
a b s t r a c t Adsorption experiments were carried out using sugarcane bagasse native and immobilized biomasses as a function of initial concentration, biomass dose, pH and contact time for theExpand
Impact of sewage contaminated water on soil, vegetables, and underground water of peri-urban Peshawar, Pakistan
The use of sewage-contaminated municipal water for irrigation of crops is an old practice in many big cities of Pakistan. Since the wastewater is rich in nutrients, it increases crops yieldExpand
Mitochondrial damage contributes to Pseudomonas aeruginosa activation of the inflammasome and is downregulated by autophagy
The nucleotide-binding domain, leucine-rich repeat containing family caspase recruitment domain containing 4 (NLRC4) inflammasome can be activated by pathogenic bacteria via products translocatedExpand
Nutritional evaluation of desi and kabuli chickpeas and their products commonly consumed in Pakistan.
Physicochemical and nutritional quality of five improved cultivars of desi and kabuli chickpeas and their products were studied. The kabuli chickpea had larger seed (26 g/100 seeds) than desi typeExpand
Grape juice was studied for one month at room temperature, after adding sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate (treatment T1: 0.1% sodium benzoate, T2: 0.2% potassium sorbate, T3: 0.1 % sodiumExpand
Host plant growth promotion and cadmium detoxification in Solanum nigrum, mediated by endophytic fungi.
Current investigation conducted to evaluate the associated fungal endophyte interactions of a Cd hyper-accumulator Solanum nigrum Korean ecotype under varying concentrations of Cd. TwoExpand
Improvement in phytoremediation potential of Solanum nigrum under cadmium contamination through endophytic-assisted Serratia sp. RSC-14 inoculation
The growth of hyperaccumulator plants is often compromised by increased toxicity of metals like cadmium (Cd). However, extraction of such metals from the soil can be enhanced by endophytic microbialExpand
Plant growth-promoting potential of endophytic fungi isolated from Solanum nigrum leaves
Fungal endophytes have been characterized as producers of phytohormones and potent promoters of plant growth. In this study, two fungal endophytes, Fusarium tricinctum RSF-4L and Alternaria alternataExpand
An Insecticidal Compound Produced by an Insect-Pathogenic Bacterium Suppresses Host Defenses through Phenoloxidase Inhibition
A bioassay-guided column chromatographic strategy was adopted in the present study to fractionate the culture extract of Photorhabdus temperata M1021 to identify potential insecticidal andExpand
