High-altitude cold habitats of the Himalayas are little explored with respect to bacterial diversity. Diverse bacterial species and phylotypes obtained by culture-dependent and culture-independent approaches are reported here. Phylogenetic analysis and modulation of bacterial diversity with altitude and available organic carbon content are also described.(More)
Clostridium perfringens is a medically important clostridial pathogen causing diseases in man and animals. To invade, multiply and colonize tissues of the host, a pathogen must be able to evade host immune system, and obtain nutrients essential for growth. The factors involved in these complex processes are largely unknown and of crucial importance to(More)
Clostridium tetani and Clostridium perfringens are among the medically important clostridial pathogens causing diseases in man and animals. Several homologous open reading frames (ORFs) have been identified in the genomes of the two pathogens by comparative genomic analysis. We tested a likelihood of extensive sharing of common epitopes between homologous(More)
The process of mining affects all the components of environment and ecology. resulting in different types of pollution problems like soil, surface and ground water pollution. Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) and mine spoil dumps may contain an elevated amount of Heavy metals. Physiological effect of heavy metal toxicity on algal species like Chlorella vulgaris,(More)
Bacillus anthracis, the etiological agent of anthrax, is responsible for a serious and often fatal disease of mammalian livestock and humans and is an important biological warfare agent. Bacillus sp. AKG was isolated from a hot spring in western Himalayas and species-specific primers targeting gyrB gene identified the strain as B. anthracis within(More)
Present address: Department of Botany, R. T. M. Nagpur University, Nagpur (M.S.), India Abstract Mining industries frequently generates acid mine drainage (AMD) either by its operating or abandoned mines which are often characterized by an elevated levels of certain heavy metals, sulphate, low pH and some other toxic impurities in mine water creates(More)
