Four Chitin degrading bacterial strains vibrio aestuarianus, Flavobacterium, Shewenella and Exiguobacterium were isolated from crustacean shells. The strains were confirmed by Biochemical analysis, FAME-GC analysis and 16s rDNA sequencing. The chitinase was purified by a two step chromatographic method and characterized. The enzyme was purified to(More)
The larvicidal activities of methanolic fractions from Adhatoda vasica leaf extracts were investigated against the bancroftian filariasis vector Culex quinquefasciatus and dengue vector Aedes aegypti. The results indicated that the mortality rates was high at 100, 150, 200 and 250 ppm of methanol extract of fractions III with R f value 0.67 and methanol(More)
The culture supernatant of a strain of Bacillus subtilis isolated from soil samples killed larvae of the mosquito Aedes aegypti. The metabolites produced by B. subtilis were characterized using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Mortality rate was dose-dependent for all larval instars of A. aegypti. Log probit analysis (95% confidence level)(More)
An extracellular chitinase was identified and purified (CS1 and CS2) from Bacillus subtilis. The 16S rRNA sequencing was submitted in GenBank (accession numbers KC336487 and KC412256). The purified crude enzymes were identified through matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight/time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) analysis. The(More)
Widespread use of synthetic pesticides has resulted in the development of insecticide-resistant populations of pests and harmful effects on human health and the environment. There is a need to identify alternative pest management strategies to reduce our reliance on conventional chemical pesticides. In recent years the use of botanical pesticides for(More)
In the title compound, C(28)H(23)N(3)O(4), the dihedral angle between the quinoline and indole ring systems is 29.30 (5)°. The pyrrolidine ring adopts a twist conformation. An intra-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bond generates an S(6) ring motif. A weak intra-molecular C3-H3⋯O3 inter-action is also observed. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked by two sets of(More)
