The present investigation deals with purification and thermal characterization of an acid invertase produced by Fusarium solani in submerged culture. The maximum enzyme activity (9.90 U mL(-1)) was achieved after 96 h of cultivation at pH 5.0 and 30 degrees C in a basal medium containing molasses (2%) as the carbon and energy source supplemented with 1%(More)
Preliminary phytochemical screening of Bauhinia variegata, Cassia fistula, Cassia tora and Tamarindus indica did not reveal alkaloids and unbound anthraquinones while glycosides as well as flavonoids were present in all the four species of the family caesalpiniaceae. Cardiac glycosides were absent only in C. tora and saponins were present only in T. indica,(More)
Purified glucoamylase (GA) from Fusarium solani was chemically modified by cross-linking with aniline hydrochloride in the presence of 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl) carbodiimide (EDC) for 1 [aniline-coupled glucoamylase-1 (ACG-1)], 7 (ACG-7), and 13 min (ACG-13). The aniline coupling of GA had a profound enhancing effect on temperature, pH optima, and(More)
The genus Leucoagaricus has been well studied in Europe. However, species diversity of Leucoagaricus in Asia remains poorly known, especially in the mountains of southwestern China, a hot spot for biodiversity. Based on morphological characters and molecular data, four new species are described, La. asiaticus, La. subcrystallifer, La. subpurpureolilacinus(More)
Deferiprone (1, 2 dimethyl-3-hydroxypyrid-4-one) is considered to be the standard iron chelator. Pharmacokinetic studies of generic formulations are required in local condition before placed on the market. High performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method was used for quantification of deferiprone in human plasma using UV/VIS detector. Chromatographic(More)
Chemical modification of carboxyl groups of glucoamylase from a mesophilic fungus, Fusarium solani, was carried out using ethylenediamine as nucleophile in the presence of water-soluble 1-ethyl-3(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide. Modification brought about a dramatic enhancement of catalytic activity and thermal stability of glucoamylase. Temperature and(More)
Eggs were collected from different areas of Faisalabad city. The quantity of sulphonamides was determined in yolk, white and whole egg and compared with the permissible limit 1 microg/ml for sulphadimethoxine available in literature. In another experiment, a group of hens were kept at a poultry farm after medicating them with darvisal liquid to see if the(More)
