Cholinesterase-based biosensor using Lates calcarifer (Asian Seabass) brain for detection of heavy metals
(SPB Pharma Society, 2015-04-01)
Heavy metals are sometimes needed for nutrient uptake but only in low concentrations and the nervous system is the most susceptible to be affected. Cholinesterase (ChE) inhibition has been used extensively as a biomarker ...
Growth kinetics of a diesel-degrading bacterial strain from petroleum-contaminated soil
(Triveni Enterprises, 2014-03)
A diesel-degrading bacterium was isolated from a diesel-contaminated site in Selangor, Malaysia. The isolate was tentatively identified as Acinetobacter sp. strain DRY12 based on partial 16S rDNA molecular phylogeny and ...
Characterization of a diesel-degrading strain isolated from a hydrocarbon-contaminated site
(Triveni Enterprises, 2009-01)
A diesel-degrading bacterium has been isolated from a diesel-polluted site. The isolate was tentatively identified as Staphylococcus aureus strain DRY11 based on partial 16S rDNA molecular phylogeny and Biolog® GP microplate ...
The use of lates calcarifer as a biomarker for heavy metals detection
(Springer Milan, 2016-01-21)
Fish are ubiquitous organisms that have many features that designate their potential as a biomarker of heavy metals pollution. Thus, an investigation was done to detect the effect of heavy metals on cholinesterase (ChE) ...
Optimisation of biodegradation conditions for cyanide removal by Serratia marcescens strain AQ07 using one-factor-at-a-time technique and response surface methodology
(Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, 2016-03-12)
Gold mining companies are known to use cyanide to extract gold from minerals. The indiscriminate use of cyanide presents a major environmental issue. Serratia marcescens strain AQ07 was found to have cyanide-degrading ...
