Response surface methodology was employed to optimize mixed substrate solid state fermentation for the production of cellulases and xylanase by Aspergillus fumigatus ABK9. Among 11 different parameters, fermentation time (86-88 h), medium pH (6.1-6.2), substrate amount (10.0-10.5 g) and substrate ratio (wheat bran:rice straw) (1.1) had significantly(More)
The total antioxidative activity of L. ingluviei ADK10 isolated from chicken intestine intact cells and cell free culture supernatant (CFCS) was 54- 67.95%. The ability to scavenge a,a-Diphenyl-b-Picrylhydrazyl free radical ranged from 71 and 64% in intact cells and CFCS respectively. Total reducing activity of bacteria was equivalent to 290 microM/L of(More)
This study was aimed to evaluate the pattern of cellulase biosynthesis from Aspergillusfumigatus ABK9 under submerged fermentation. Production was increased concomitantly with fungal growth up to 72 h and reached maximum (Xmax -6.72 g/l) with specific growth rate (mu max) of 0.126/h. Highest specific rate of enzyme production (q ) was found at initial(More)
This study aimed to explore the bactericidal activity of a feather-degraded active peptide against multiple-antibiotic-resistant (MAR) Staphylococcus aureus. An antibacterial peptide (ABP) was isolated from the chicken feathers containing fermented media of Paenibacillus woosongensis TKB2, a keratinolytic soil isolate. It was purified by HPLC, and its mass(More)
Low cost agro-waste was used as adsorption support for single-step purification of endoglucanase from the culture filtrate of A. fumigatus ABK-9. Among various agro-waste substrates, 1% NaOH pretreated rice bran was proved to be the best for adsorbing about 74.8 and 71.1% of endoglucanase at 4 degrees C and 10 degrees C respectively. Langmuir type(More)
In the present study the bioactivities of chitooligosaccharides of fermented shrimp-shell hydrolysate (SSH) in respect to hypocholesterolemic, antioxidant and prebiotic activity were tested in male albino rat. Rats were treated with four different diets, viz., (i) cholesterol-rich (5%) basal diet (ChB), (ii) ChB+10% chitin, (iii) ChB+10% SSH and (iv)(More)
In the present study, Lactobacillus ingluviei ADK10 (Acc. No. JQ395039) from intestinal origin was tested for its probiotic characteristic as well as uremia ameliorating activity on acetaminophen induced uremic rats. The results revealed that L. ingluviei ADK10 was able to tolerate pH 3.0–9.0 and 0.5% bile salt along with good hydrophobicity (67%) and(More)
Chitosaccharides (CS) of varied size were prepared from shrimp shell through sequential catalysis, using crude protease and chitinase enzymes immobilized on agar beads. In the optimized state, immobilization yield and activity yield for protease were 84% and 62%, and for chitinase were 75% and 57%, respectively. Immobilized protease and chitinase treatment(More)
Tannin-rich materials are abundantly generated as wastes from several agroindustrial activities. Therefore, tannase is an interesting hydrolase, for bioconversion of tannin-rich materials into value added products by catalyzing the hydrolysis of ester and depside bonds and unlocked a new prospect in different industrial sectors like food, beverages,(More)
Currently kidney disease appears a foremost problem across the world. Acetaminophen is a commonly used antipyretic agent, which in high doses, causes uremia and used for experimentally induction of kidney disease. Bacteriotherapy affords a promising approach to mitigate uremic toxins by ingestion of urease positive bacteria, probiotics and symbiotic able to(More)
