A chemolithotrophic bacterium enriched in the chemostat in presence of sodium bicarbonate as sole carbon source was identified as Serratia sp. by 16S rRNA sequencing. Carbon dioxide sequestering capacity of bacterium was detected by carbonic anhydrase enzyme and ribulose-1, 5- bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO). The purified carbonic anhydrase(More)
A Bacillus sp. isolated from sediments of distillery unit was found to overproduce laccase when cultured in a synthetic media containing 1mM CuSO4 and 10% distillery spent wash as inducers along with 1% dextrose (w/v) and 0.1% tryptone (w/v) as additional carbon and nitrogen sources. The extracellular purified enzyme was highly thermostable with a(More)
The Serratia sp. strain ISTD04 has been identified as a carbon dioxide (CO2)-sequestering bacterium isolated from marble mining rocks in the Umra area, Rajasthan, India. This strain grows chemolithotrophically on media that contain sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) as the sole carbon source. Here, we report the genome sequence of 5.07 Mb Serratia sp. ISTD04.
We report here the genome sequence of Pandoraea sp. ISTKB, a betaproteobacterium isolated from rhizospheric soil in the backwaters of Alappuzha, Kerala, India. The strain is alkalotolerant and grows on medium containing lignin as a sole carbon source. Genes and pathways related to lignin degradation were complemented by genomic analysis.
Background: The present study aimed at evaluation of in vitro antioxidant and radioprotective potential of lignan phyllanthin isolated from Phyllanthus niruri. Materials and Methods: Four preparative TLC isolates of P. niruri whole plant methanolic extract were assessed for hydroxyl radical scavenging ability. The hydroxyl radical scavenging potentials of(More)
