Antibacterial Activity of Flavonoids from Ethyl Acetate Extract of Milk Banana Peel (Musa x paradisiaca L.)
- HAYATI Journal of Biosciences
Infectious diseases caused by Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli can be treated by milk banana peels (Musa × paradisiaca L.). This study aims to reveal the antibacterial activity of milk…
Degradation of Antibiotics By Bacteria and Fungi From The Aquatic Environment
The results indicate that some bacteria and fungi from aquatic environment exposed to antibiotics will develop the ability to degrade the antibiotics, and develop resistance to the antibiotics and some other antibiotics.
Controls on soil microbial community stability under climate change
- Environmental ScienceFront. Microbiol.
Results show that community measures of the relative abundance of r- and K-strategists, as well as environmental properties like resource availability and the abundance and diversity of higher trophic levels, can contribute to explaining the response of microbial community composition to climate change-related disturbances.
Isolation and Characterization of Antibiotic and Exoenzymes Producing Actinobacteria from Guts of Fungus-Cultivating Termites (Macrotermes Michaelseni)
It is confirmed that guts of fungus-cultivating termites harbor Actinobacteria that can produce enzymes and antibiotics.
An evaluation of the antimicrobial synergy of Garlic ( Allium sativum ) and Utazi ( Gongronema latifolium ) on Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus
It is concluded that synergism associated with the combination of medicinal plants is doubtful, however, the synergistic or additive effect between garlic and conventional drugs to some strains of bacteria which are resistant to some conventional drugs, gives hope of fighting drug resistance.
The impact of intrinsic and extrinsic factors on the safety and quality of hard and semi-soft natural cheese
- Biology, Business
This paper reviews the safe production of hard and semi-soft natural cheeses made from pasteurized milk, starter cultures, and enzymatic coagulation and finds factors contribute to a multiple hurdle effect that inhibits pathogens and spoilage organisms while also providing operational parameters to ensure flavor, texture, and other quality targets.
Initiation of invasive disease in M1T1 group A streptococcus
- Biology, Medicine
A bacteriophage-encoded group A streptococcal DNase (Sda1), which facilitates the pathogen’s escape from neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs), can serve as a selective force for covR/S mutation, providing a paradigm whereby horizontal gene transfer and natural selection exerted by the innate immune system is provided.

Dechlorinating and Iron-Reducing Bacteria Distribution in a TrichloroetheneContaminated Aquifer
Influence of different carboxy-terminal mutations on the substrate-, reaction- and enantiospecificity of the arylacetonitrilase from Pseudomonas fluorescens EBC191.
- Biology, ChemistryProtein engineering, design & selection : PEDS
Chimeric enzymes which contained up to 59 amino acids deriving from the nitrilases of Rhodococcus rhodochrous NCIMB11216 or Alcaligenes faecalis ATCC8750 were active and resembled, with respect to the enantioselectivity and degree of amide formation, the wild-type enzyme of P.fluorescens.
Microbial Flora of Smoke-Dried Catfish (Clarias Gariepinus) Processed and Sold in Some Abattoirs in Bayelsa and Rivers States
- African Journal of Environment and Natural Science Research
The microflora of smoked catfish (Clarias gariepinus) sold in some abattoirs in Bayelsa and Rivers States were investigated. Smoked catfish samples were purchased within abattoirs and aseptically…
