Optimization of medium and cultivation conditions for L-amino acid oxidase production by Aspergillus fumigatus.
The enzyme showed enantiomerically pure amino acid formation, which has tremendous demand in industrial applications, and belong to the species Aspergillus fumigatus (designated as P13). Expand
Production and properties of asparaginase from a new Erwinia sp.
The combination of L-arginine, L-asparagine and L-glutamine synergistically stimulated the asparaginase up to 5.8 fold. Expand
Multiple antibiotic resistance (MAR) index and its reversion in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
The MAR indexes of hospital isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa were determined with reference to nine different cephalosporins suggesting their origin from a high risk source of contamination where antibiotics are often used. Expand
Alcoholic fermentation by agar-immobilized yeast cells
Immobilized yeast cells in agar gel beads were used in a packed bed reactor for the production of ethanol from cane molasses at 30°C, pH 4.5. The maximum productivity, 79.5g ethanol/l.h was obtainedExpand
Production, purification and characterization of an α-amylase produced by Saccharomycopsis fibuligera
Saccharomycopsis fibuligera ST 2 produced high levels of extracellular amylase during the stationary phase of growth, indicating the lack of catabolite repression in this organism. Expand
Microbial degradation of sulfur compounds present in coal and petroleum
Publisher Summary The petroleum refining companies have recognized the fact that hydro desulfurization units for the high extent of desulfurization are extremely expensive to build and operate.Expand
Molecular docking and in silico studies on analogues of 2-methylheptyl isonicotinate with DHDPS enzyme of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other strains of mycobacteria cause tuberculosis which has infected one-third of the world’s population. Moreover, there has been increase in multidrug-resistantExpand
Production and properties of asparaginase from a newErwinia sp.
Asparaginase production by a mesophilic strain ofErwinia sp. was examined; the maximum of activity was found at 40°C and pH 8.5. Among the various carbon sources, mannitol was shown to be the bestExpand
Insights from the docking analysis of biologically active compounds from plant Litsea Genus as potential COX-2 inhibitors
The binding of thirteen Litsea derived biologically active compounds against the inflammation associated target COX (cyclo-oxygenase) -2 enzymes is illustrated. Expand
Design of inhibitors of the HIV-1 integrase core domain using virtual screening
Virtual screening of database compounds and designed analogues using Elvitegravir (EVG) as a standard compound suggested very significant results in regard to EVG, including significant ADME result. Expand
