Investigation on mechanism of Cr(VI) reduction and removal by Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, a novel chromate tolerant bacterium isolated from chromite mine soil.
A strain CSB 9 isolated from chromite mine soil of Sukinda, India was identified as Bacillus amyloliquefaciens based on biochemical and 16S rRNA gene sequencing. The strain exhibited relatively highExpand
Plant canopies: bio-monitor and trap for re-suspended dust particulates contaminated with heavy metals
Urban and peri-urban vegetation is being considered for air pollution abatement. Appropriate plants with efficiency to adsorb and absorb air-pollutants are the prerequisite for green spaceExpand
Copper-stress induced alterations in protein profile and antioxidant enzymes activities in the in vitro grown Withania somnifera L.
Withania somnifera L. seedlings were grown in half-strength MS (Murashige and Skoog) basal medium for 4 weeks and then transferred to full-strength MS liquid medium for 3 weeks. The sustainableExpand
Studies on Metal Microbe Interaction of Three Bacterial Isolates From East Calcutta Wetland
The present paper put forth the isolation and complete characterization of three bacterial isolates from different sites of East Calcutta Wetland (ECW). These isolates show tolerance to heavy metalsExpand
Synthesis of a novel glucose capped gold nanoparticle as a better theranostic candidate
Gold nanoparticles are predominantly used in diagnostics, therapeutics and biomedical applications. The present study has been designed to synthesize differently capped gold nanoparticles (AuNps) byExpand
Physiological and chemical response of the lichen, Flavoparmelia caperata (L.) Hale, to the urban environment of Kolkata, India
The present study was focused on the effect of increasing urbanization including industrial and traffic activity on the accumulation of heavy metals and possible damage of selected physiologicalExpand
A study on soil physico-chemical, microbial and metal content in Sukinda chromite mine of Odisha, India
Soil samples from chromite mining site and its adjacent overburden dumps and fallow land of Sukinda, Odisha, were analysed for their physico-chemical, microbial and metal contents. Chromite mineExpand
Heavy metal contamination, physico-chemical and microbial evaluation of water samples collected from chromite mine environment of Sukinda, India
Water samples from chromite mine quarry of Sukinda and its adjacent areas were analyzed for their heavy metal contamination along with physico-chemical and microbial contents. The chromite mine waterExpand
Elemental profile in some common medicinal plants of India. Its correlation with traditional therapeutic usage
