Environmental and ecological risk assessment of heavy metals in sediments of Nador lagoon, Morocco
Abstract Heavy metal assessment in Nador lagoon (Mediterranean coast) was carried out using different environmental indices. In addition, heavy metal concentrations were measured in sediment samplesExpand
Roles of two white-rot basidiomycete fungi in decolorisation and detoxification of olive mill waste water
TLDR
The results indicated that Ph. chrysosporium isolate is more efficient than Pl. ostreatus in decolorising and detoxifying OMW in the presence of added nutrients and is capable of reducing all parameters analysed by at least 60%, after only 9 days of growth. Expand
Detoxification and discoloration of Moroccan olive mill wastewater by electrocoagulation.
TLDR
Under optimal experimental conditions, olive mill wastewater became non-toxic for Bacillus cereus, and the physico-chemical parameters during the treatment by electrocoagulation showed that. Expand
In-vessel treatment of urban primary sludge by aerobic composting.
TLDR
Final compost showed low amounts of heavy metals, relatively high contents of nutrients and significant reduction of pathogens, suggesting the agricultural purposes of urban primary sludge. Expand
Antilisterial activity of enterocin 81, a bacteriocin produced by Enterococcus faecium WHE 81 isolated from cheese
Enterocin 81, a bacteriocin produced by Enterococcus faecium WHE 81 previously isolated from cheese, exhibited a very narrow spectrum of activity, which is mainly directed against enterococci andExpand
Multi-criteria decision aid approach for the selection of the best compromise management scheme for the treatment of municipal solid waste in Morocco
The Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in developing countries is generally badly controlled and badly managed. Because of the environmental problems bound to this problem, many countries established theirExpand
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AND ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITIES OF TWENTY-THREE MARINE RED ALGAE FROM THE COAST OF SIDI BOUZID (EL JADIDA-MOROCCO)
Six organic and aqueous extracts of twenty-three red marine algae collected along the Atlantic coast of Morocco were studied for anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activities. Anti-inflammatoryExpand
Widespread occurrence of non-phosphorylating glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase among gram-positive bacteria.
TLDR
Activity and immunoblot analyses were used to generate the first survey of bacterial GAPDHN distribution in a number of Bacillus, Streptococcus and Clostridium strains and confirmed that the basic structural features of the members of the GAPDhN family have been conserved throughout evolution and that no identity exists with phosphorylating GAPD Hs.

Effect of Acetic and Butyric Acids on the Stability of Solvent and Spore Formation by Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824 during Repeated Subculturing
We studied the effect of serial transfers on solventogenesis capacity and spore-forming ability by Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824 in two culture media. In reinforced clostridial medium (RCM), anExpand
Characterization of Anti-Listeria monocytogenes Bacteriocins from Enterococcus faecalis, Enterococcus faecium, and Lactococcus lactis Strains Isolated from Raïb, a Moroccan Traditional Fermented Milk
TLDR
Anti-bacterial spectra and physico-chemical properties suggest that these bacteriocins were similar to nisin, and Enterocin R69 had a specificity of action against Listeria spp. Expand
