Transformation of nitrobenzene by ferredoxin NADP oxidoreductase from spinach leaves.
The product of nitrobenzene reduced in a solution containing ferredoxin NADP oxidoreductase (FNR) from spinach leaves and NADPH generating system was identified as phenylhydroxylamine (PHA) on 1:1 basis. Expand
Isolation and identification of microbial contaminants associated with commercial poultry feeds
It is concluded that poultry feeds, especially those inside farms are harbouring potential pathogenic bacteria and fungi loads that are far above the acceptable levels, thus constituting a public health hazard and necessitate the application of the standard measures for production of feeds by manufacturers and health authorities.

The results suggest that under aerobic conditions, tetryl is enzymatically reduced to the nitroanion radical which is then involved in the reduction of molecular oxygen and nitrite is eliminated. Expand
Acylated flavonol glycosides from Tagetes minuta with antibacterial activity
Wild marigold (Tagetes minuta), a flowering plant of the family Asteraceae contains compounds of pharmaceutical and nutritional importance especially essential oils and flavonols that can be potential candidates for antibacterial drug discovery and support to ethnopharmacological use. Expand
