Isolation and Characterization of Bacteria from the Gut of Bombyx mori that Degrade Cellulose, Xylan, Pectin and Starch and Their Impact on Digestion
Abstract Bombyx mori L. (Lepidoptera: Bombycidae) have been domesticated and widely used for silk production. It feeds on mulberry leaves. Mulberry leaves are mainly composed of pectin, xylan,Expand
Cellulosic ethanol production by Zymomonas mobilis harboring an endoglucanase gene from Enterobacter cloacae.
Enterobactercloacae was isolated from the gut of the wood feeding termite, Heterotermes indicola, and a 2.25-kb fragment conferring cellulase activity was cloned in Escherichia coli. The clonedExpand
Biodiesel production from marine cyanobacteria cultured in plate and tubular photobioreactors.
Carbon (neutral) based renewable liquid biofuels are alternative to petroleum derived transport fuels that contribute to global warming and are of a limited availability. Microalgae based biofuelsExpand
Mosquito larvicidal activity of transgenic Anabaena strain PCC 7120 expressing combinations of genes from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis.
Various combinations of the genes cryIVA (cry4A), cryIVD (cry11A), and p20 from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis were introduced into the nitrogen-fixing cyanobacterium Anabaena sp. strainExpand
High-Level Expression of Functionally Active Dengue-2 Non-Structural Antigen 1 Production in Escherichia coli
Detection of nonstructural protein (NS1) is an important diagnostic marker during acute phase of dengue infection. Not only for diagnostic purpose, the protein had important role in vaccine design asExpand
Diversity of eggs and ovipositional behaviour in reduviids (Insecta, Heteroptera, Reduviidae) of south India.
Diversity of eggs and oviposition behaviour of fourteen species of reduviids belonging to five sub-families, viz., Acanthaspidinae, Ectrichodiinae, Harpactorinae, Piratinae and Stenopodinae areExpand
Biology, Behaviour and Biocontrol Efficiency of a Reduviid Predator, Sycanus reclinatusDohrn (Heteroptera: Reduviidae) from Southern India
Sycanus reclinatusDOHRN, a reduviid predator, inhabits tropical evergreen forests of southern India. Females lay clusters of brown coloured eggs 22 d after emergence. The eggs hatch in 14 to 23 d andExpand
Formulation of bactericidal cold cream against clinical pathogens using Cassia auriculata flower extract-synthesized Ag nanoparticles
A simple formulation of bactericidal cold cream using the biosynthesized silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) from Cassia auriculata flower extract and their antibacterial activity was tested against variousExpand
Occurrence and Distribution of Mosquitocidal Bacillus sphaericus in Soil
2 Abstract: A major challenge for achieving successful mosquito control is overcoming insecticide resistance. Bacillus sphaericus is one of the effective biolarvicides to control Culex species andExpand
