Culture independent assessment of human milk microbial community in lactational mastitis
Breastfeeding undoubtedly provides important benefits to the mother-infant dyad and should be encouraged. Mastitis, one of the common but major cause of premature weaning among lactating women, is anExpand

Human milk microbiome in urban and rural populations of India
Abstract Most of the studies examining human milk microbiota were focused on differences in bacterial taxa in relation to birthing method, gestation time and infant gender. In this study, we aimed toExpand

Cloning, molecular modeling and characterization of acidic cellulase from buffalo rumen and its applicability in saccharification of lignocellulosic biomass.
Cellulase hydrolyses the cellulose by cleaving the β-1,4-linkages to produce mono-, oligo- and shorter polysaccharide units. These enzymes have applications in various industries such as pulp andExpand
