Assessment of Thymus vulgaris L. essential oil as a safe botanical preservative against post harvest fungal infestation of food commodities
TLDR
The thyme essential oil is recommended for large scale application as a plant based preservative for stored food items because of its strong antifungal as well as antiaflatoxigenic efficacy. Expand
Biological Synthesis of Nanoparticles from Plants and Microorganisms.
TLDR
The potential uses of various biological sources for nanoparticle synthesis and the application of those nanoparticles are explored and the recent milestones achieved are highlighted by controlling critical parameters, including the choice of biological source, incubation period, pH, and temperature. Expand
Chemical profile, antifungal, antiaflatoxigenic and antioxidant activity of Citrus maxima Burm. and Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck essential oils and their cyclic monoterpene, DL-limonene.
TLDR
The EOs were found non-mammalian toxic showing high LD(50) for mice (oral, acute) and may be recommended as safe plant based antimicrobials as well as antioxidants for enhancement of shelf life of food commodities by checking their fungal infestation, aflatoxin production as wellAs lipid peroxidation. Expand
Efficacy of chemically characterized Piper betle L. essential oil against fungal and aflatoxin contamination of some edible commodities and its antioxidant activity.
TLDR
P. betle EO exhibited special merits possessing antifungal, aflatoxin suppressive and antioxidant characters which are desirable for an ideal preservative and its application as a plant based food additive in protection and enhancement of shelf life of edible commodities during storage and processing is strongly recommended in view of the toxicological implications by synthetic preservatives. Expand
Chemical composition, antifungal and antiaflatoxigenic activities of Ocimum sanctum L. essential oil and its safety assessment as plant based antimicrobial.
TLDR
The findings of present study reveals the possible exploitation of O. sanctum EO and eugenol as plant based safe preservatives against fungal spoilage of food stuffs during storage. Expand
Multidrug Resistant and Extensively Drug Resistant Bacteria: A Study
TLDR
Close monitoring of MDR, XDR, or even PDR must be done by all clinical microbiology laboratories to implement effective measures to reduce the menace of antimicrobial resistance. Expand
Infection of tomato leaf curl New Delhi virus (ToLCNDV), a bipartite begomovirus with betasatellites, results in enhanced level of helper virus components and antagonistic interaction between DNA B
TLDR
Inoculation with the cloned component DNA A and DNA B were agroinoculated on Nicotiana benthamiana and tomato plants with or without betasatellites, CLCuMuB or LuLDB. Expand
The development of a green approach for the biosynthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles by using Panax ginseng root extract, and their biological applications
TLDR
The study develops a convenient method for the green synthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles by utilizing fresh root extract of the four-year old Panax ginseng plant, and evaluated the antimicrobial applications of silver nanoparticles against pathogenic microorganisms. Expand
Effect of temperature and light on the growth of algae species: A review
TLDR
Algae are fast growing biomass and can be converted to Biodiesel fuel and need a light:dark regime for productive photosynthesis and the effect of temperature and light intensity on their growth is studied. Expand
Extracellular synthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles by Sporosarcina koreensis DC4 and their biological applications.
TLDR
The present study highlights the microbial synthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles by Sporosarcina koreensis DC4 strain, in an efficient way, and shows that 3μg concentration of silver nanoparticles sufficiently enhance the antimicrobial efficacy of commercial antibiotics against pathogenic microorganism.
