MYCOTOXINS AND ITS EFFECTS

  ABSTRACTMycotoxinsare secondary metabolites of molds that have adverse effects on humans,animals, and crops that result in illnesses and economic losses. Aflatoxins,ochratoxins, trichothecenes, zearalenone, fumonisins are the mycotoxins ofgreatest agro-economic importance. Some molds are capable of producing morethan one mycotoxin and some mycotoxins are produced by more than one fungalspecies. Often more than one mycotoxin is found on a contaminated substrate.Mycotoxins...

ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTIES OF EAR WAX ON CLINICAL ISOLATES

1.0    INTRODUCTION AND LITERATURE REVIEWEar wax is normally produced in the ear canal. It is made up of the secretions of specialized sets of glands located in the ear canal. Sebaceous glands secrete sebum. Sebum is mostly a combination of fatty acids. Modified apocrine sweat glands release a secretion that combines with the sebum to form cerumen. This cerumen also picks up discarded cells and hair follicles. It may contain dust or other debris that finds its way into the ear canal...

Isolation and screening of fungi from the rhizosphere of moringa oleifera for amylase and protease production

ABSTRACTThe present study is to isolate fungi from rhizosphere of Moringa oleifera and screen them for the production of some very important enzymes such as amylase and protease. Twenty fungi were isolated from the soil sample from five different farms using pour plate method. The isolates were then identified based on their colonial morphology and microscopic features in wet mount and Lactophenol Cotton Blue staining. All the isolates were screened for amylase and protease production by star...

Norovirus

NOROVIRUSNorovirus (NoV), causing the winter vomiting disease, is today recognized as the most important agent of acute human gastroenteritisThe etiology of diarrheas can involve several agents, such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Bacterial agents are relatively more important in developing countries, whereas viral agents are more relevant in industrialized countries. The importance of these agents is related to hygiene and sanitation conditions for the population1. In 1972, a 27-nm vir...

Health benefits of Ginger

ABSTRACTGinger is a member of the Zingiberaceae family of plants. It has been a part of healing strategies in Asia, India, Europe, Africa and the Middle East for centuries for treatment of such disorders as arthritis, stomach upset, asthma, diabetes and menstrual irregularities. There is scientific support that ginger may alleviate the symptoms of nausea and vomiting following pregnancy, surgery, cancer therapy, or motion sickness and suggestive evidence that ginger reduces inflammation and p...

Microbial Fuel Cell

IntroductionMicrobial fuel cells (MFCs) are bioreactors that convert chemical energy stored in the bonds of organic mattersinto electricity through biocatalysis of microorganisms (Potter, 1911; Cohen, 1931; Davis and Yarbrough, 1962;Moon et al., 2006). The schematic of a typical MFC is shown in Fig. 1. In the sketch below, the anodic andcathodic chamber are separated by a proton exchange membrane (PEM) (Wilkinson, 2000; Gil et al., 2003) thatallows transport protons while blocking oxygen and ...

Genetically modified vaccines

AbstractDespite the early success demonstrated with the hepatitis B vaccine, no other recombinant engineered vaccine has been approved for use in humans. It is unlikely that a recombinant vaccine will be developed to replace an existing licensed human vaccine with a proven record of safety and efficacy. This is due to the economic reality of making vaccines for human use. Genetically engineered subunit vaccines are more costly to manufacture than conventional vaccines, since the antigen must ...

THE USE OF MICROBES AS BIOFERTILIZERS

ABSTRACT   With the ongoing adverse effects of using Chemical fertilizers to both the plants, human and animal life, it has become imperative to seek an alternative to this menace. A biofertilizer is a substance which contains living microorganisms which, when applied to seed, plant surfaces, or soil, colonizes the rhizosphere or the interior of the plant and promotes growth by increasing the supply or ...
