Anticancer activity of biogenerated silver nanoparticles: an integrated proteomic investigation
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), embedded into a specific polysaccharide (EPS), were biogenerated by Klebsiella oxytoca DSM 29614 under aerobic (AgNPs-EPSaer) and anaerobic conditions (AgNPs-EPSanaer).Expand

Adaptative biochemical pathways and regulatory networks in Klebsiella oxytoca BAS-10 producing a biotechnologically relevant exopolysaccharide during Fe(III)-citrate fermentation
BackgroundA bacterial strain previously isolated from pyrite mine drainage and named BAS-10 was tentatively identified as Klebsiella oxytoca. Unlikely other enterobacteria, BAS-10 is able to grow onExpand

Comparison of Efficacy and Cost of Iodine Impregnated Drape vs. Standard Drape in Cardiac Surgery: Study in 5100 Patients
We sought to examine the efficacy in preventing surgical site infection (SSI) in cardiac surgery, using two different incise drapes (not iodine-impregnated and iodine-impregnated). A cost analysisExpand

Characterisation of biosynthesised silver nanoparticles by scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) and voltammetry.
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were biosynthesised by a Klebsiella oxytoca strain BAS-10, which, during its growth, is known to produce a branched exopolysaccharide (EPS). Klebsiella oxytoca cultures,Expand

Occurrence of hyperostotic pterygiophores in the silver scabbardfish, Lepidopus caudatus (Actinopterygii: Perciformes: Trichiuridae)
Background. Hyperostosis is a productive change characterized by an increase of the periosteal ossification combined with resorption of the bony tissue. It is common in several fish species. ItsExpand

Phycoerythrin productivity and diversity from five red macroalgae
Five red algae, Agardhiella subulata, Gracilariopsis longissima, Gracilaria vermiculophylla, Polysiphonia morrowii, and Pyropia elongata were sampled in winter for the extraction of phycoerythrin.Expand

An extracellular polymeric substance quickly chelates mercury(II) with N-heterocyclic groups.
A strain of Klebsiella oxytoca DSM 29614 is grown on sodium citrate in the presence of 50 mg l-1 of Hg as Hg(NO3)2. During growth, the strain produces an extracellular polymeric substance (EPS),Expand

Polysaccharide-based silver nanoparticles synthesized by Klebsiella oxytoca DSM 29614 cause DNA fragmentation in E. coli cells
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), embedded into a specific exopolysaccharide (EPS), were produced by Klebsiella oxytoca DSM 29614 by adding AgNO3 to the cultures during exponential growth phase. InExpand

Seasonal mercury transformation and surficial sediment detoxification by bacteria of Marano and Grado lagoons
Marano and Grado lagoons are polluted by mercury from the Isonzo River and a chlor-alkali plant, yet despite this contamination, clam cultivation is one of the main activities in the region. FourExpand
