Evaluation of the efficacy of a fungal consortium for degradation of azo dyes and simulated textile dye effluents
Azo dyes are widely prevalent environmental contaminants that are recalcitrant to biodegradation processes and have detrimental biological effects. Hence, exploring the novel microbial agents and to
Molecular Cloning and Characteristic Features of a Novel Extracellular Tyrosinase from Aspergillus niger PA2
Aspergillus niger PA2, a novel strain isolated from waste effluents of food industry, is a potential extracellular tyrosinase producer. Enzyme activity and L-DOPA production were maximum when glucose
Microbial Tyrosinases: A Novel Enzyme, Structural Features, and Applications
Abstract Tyrosinase (E.C. is a member of type-3 copper protein family and is found in large amounts in the phylogenetic scale of living organisms. It catalyzes the hydroxylation of
Aspergillus niger PA2: a novel strain for extracellular biotransformation of l-tyrosine into l-DOPA
Aspergillus niger PA2 could be a promising resource and may be further exploited for large-scale production of l-DOPA, the most widely used drug of choice for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and other neurologic injuries.
Manganese Peroxidases: Molecular Diversity, Heterologous Expression, and Applications
Manganese peroxidases (MnPs) are a fascinating group of biocatalysts with various ecological and biotechnological implications. They are involved in the biodegradation of lignocellulose and lignin
Aspergillus niger PA2 Tyrosinase Covalently Immobilized on a Novel Eco-Friendly Bio-Composite of Chitosan-Gelatin and Its Evaluation for L-DOPA Production
Tyrosinase, isolated from a fungal isolate Aspergillus niger PA2 was subjected for immobilization onto a composite consisting of chitosan and gelatin biopolymers for the synthesis of L-DOPA which is a precursor of dopamine and a potent drug for the treatment of Parkinson's disease and for myocardium neurogenic injury.
NGAL/MMP-9 as a biomarker for epithelial ovarian cancer: A case–control diagnostic accuracy study
Background: Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) are often diagnosed late due to lack of specific symptoms and efficient tumor markers. Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin/matrix metallopeptidase-9
