Production of laccase using a submerged culture of Pleurotus orstreatus IMI 395545 was optimized by the Taguchi orthogonal array (OA) design of experiments (DOE) methodology. This approach facilitates the study of the interactions of a large number of variables spanned by factors and their settings, with a small number of experiments, leading to(More)
Statistically-based experimental designs were applied to optimize the fermentation for the production of laccase by Pleurotus florida NCIM 1243. Eleven components were screened for their significant effect on laccase production using Plackett-Burman factorial design. Glucose (carbon source), asparagine (nitrogen source), CuSO(4)(inducer) and incubation(More)
Pleurotus florida NCIM 1243 produced laccase as the dominant lignolytic enzyme during the dye decolorization. Banana peel was the best substrate for extracellular laccase production under solid state fermentation when compared to mandarin peel and cantaloupe peel. The maximum activity of laccase (5.4 U/g) was detected on the 10 day. The ratio of banana(More)
Thespesia populnea is a large tree found in the tropical regions and coastal forests of India. Its pods were used as a raw material for the preparation of activated carbon. The prepared activated carbon was used for the adsorptive removal of Orange G dye from aqueous system. The effects of various parameters such as agitation time, initial dye concentration(More)
BACKGROUND Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) defines the end stage of Human immunodeficiency viral (HIV) infection before the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). This study was carried out to assess the serum β-2 microglobulin (B2M) as a marker for progression of HIV infected patients undergoing HAART. METHODS Blood(More)
Laccase was produced from Pleurotus florida under solid-state fermentation, and the production was optimized by response surface methodology. The predicted maximum laccase production of 8.81 U g(-1) was obtained by the optimum concentration of malt extract, banana peel, wheat bran and CuSO4, which was found to be 0.69 g, 10.61 g, 10.68 g and 77.15 ppm,(More)
CREB binding protein (CBP) and E1A binding protein p300, also known as p300 are functionally related transcriptional co-activators (CoAs) and histone acetyltransferases (HATs). Some small molecules, which target HATs can activate or inhibit the p300 enzyme potently. Here, we report the binding affinities of two small molecules CTPB(More)
The present study was attempted to investigate the effect of G. montanum leaf extract on inhibition of α-glucosidase and α-amylase activity. The ethanol extract of G. montanum (GLEt) at various concentrations (1–10 μg/ml) was tested for its inhibition pattern against α-glucosidase and α-amylase activity in vitro and compared with the commercially available(More)
A cDNA encoding for manganese peroxidase isozyme H4 (MnPH4), isolated from Phanerochaete chrysosporium, was expressed in Pichia pastoris, under the control of alcohol oxidase I promoter. The recombinant MnPH4 was efficiently secreted onto media supplemented with hemin at a maximum concentration of 500 U/L, after which purified rMnPH4 was used to decolorize(More)
The conventional adsorbents like activated carbon, agricultural wastes, molecular sieves, etc., used for dye adsorption are unstable in the environment for long time, and hence the adsorbed dyes again gets liberated and pollute the environment. To avoid this problem, environmentally stable adsorbent of silica and alumina should be employed for malachite(More)
