Synergistic biodegradation of pentachlorophenol by Bacillus cereus (DQ002384), Serratia marcescens (AY927692) and Serratia marcescens (DQ002385)
The consortia showed better overall removal efficiencies than single strains by utilization of PCP as a carbon and energy source confirmed by pH dependent dye indicator bromocresol purple (BCP) in mineral salt media (MSM). Expand
Investigation of the biotransformation of pentachlorophenol and pulp paper mill effluent decolorisation by the bacterial strains in a mixed culture.
The physico-chemical quality of pulp paper mill effluent has been analyzed after 168 h incubation period degraded by mixed culture and revealed that it has decreased high load of BOD, COD, TS, TDS, TSS, sulphate, phosphate, total nitrogen, total phenols, metals and different salts. Expand
Isolation and characterization of bacterial strains Paenibacillus sp. and Bacillus sp. for kraft lignin decolorization from pulp paper mill waste.
Eight aerobic bacterial strains were isolated from pulp paper mill waste and screened for tolerance of kraft lignin (KL) using the nutrient enrichment technique in mineral salt media (MSM) agar plate with clear indications of biochemical modification of KL due to the bacterial ligninolytic system by ITRC S(6).

Seasonal Bacteriological Analysis of Gola River Water Contaminated with Pulp Paper Mill Waste in Uttaranchal, India
The monsoon season showed presence of FC and TC indicated the thermo-tolerant and disease causing group of bacterial population in effluent and its sequence was observed as monsoon>summer>winter, which indicated the growth of many pathogenic and non-pathogenic bacteria for health hazards with contamination of pulp paper waste in aquatic ecosystem within the vicinity of pulp Paper mill industry.

Isolation and characterization of two potential pentachlorophenol degrading aerobic bacteria from pulp paper effluent sludge.
Researchers have reported the PCP degrading microorganism (bacteria) from the natural environ-ment, and several microor-ganisms have been isolated from sites contaminated with PCP and their metabolite biodegradation path-ways have been elucidated. Expand
Isolation and characterization of novel Serratia marcescens (AY927692) for pentachlorophenol degradation from pulp and paper mill waste
Bacterium was identified as S. marcescens (AY927692), was a novel and potential aerobic bacterial strain capable of degrading PCP in axenic condition and may be used for bioremediation of PCP containing pulp paper mill waste in the environment. Expand
Biodegradation of phenol in batch culture by pure and mixed strains of Paenibacillus sp. and Bacillus cereus.
It was observed that, in the absence of glucose, bacterial strains were unable to utilize phenol indicating the phenomenon of co-metabolism, and 2-hydroxy muconic semialdehyde were identified as intermediate products from degraded samples using GC-MS. Expand
The effects of perceived discrimination on Samoan health
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of perceived discrimination on Samoan health. This study employed purposive data collection and was conducted quantitatively using a questionnaireExpand
Assessment of Antioxidant Potential and Related Structural Diversity of Polyphenols in Indian Foliose Lichens
Lichens have been used since ancient times to cure various ailments. To study the variation in phytochemical composition and antioxidant activity of n-hexane, acetone and methanol extracts in sevenExpand
