Degradation of Commercial Detergent Products by Microbial Populations of the Lagos Lagoon
The biodegradability potentials of three detergent products with the trade names Omo, Teepol and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) by the native bacteria of the Lagos lagoon was carried out using the lagoon die-away method. ...
Short Communication: Purification and Properties of a Glucose-Forming Amylase of Lactobacillus Brevis
(Rapid Science Publishers, 1995)
An extracellular glucose-forming amylase was produced by Lactobacillus brevis isolated from ‘Kagasok tea’. The enzyme was purified 70-fold and had optimal activity at 55 oC and pH 6.5. Its Km value for starch was 0.27 mg ...
Characterisation of a Neutral Protease Produced by Micrococcus Luteus
A proteolytic enzyme produced by a cassava-fermenting strain of Micrococcus luteus was extracted and purified 50-fold by gel filtration and ion exchange chromatography. The optimum pH for the enzyme was 7.0, the optimum ...
Purification and Properties of an A-Amylase Produced by a Cassava-Fermenting Strain of Micrococcus Luteus
An extracellular α-amylase produced by a cassava-fermenting strain of Micrococcus luteus was purified 26-fold by gel filtration and ion-exchange chromatography. The molar mass was estimated to be approximately 56 kDa. The ...
Biodegradation of hydrocarbons in the presence of nickel and cobal
(Wiley-Vch Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim., 2013-11)
Microbial Activity in Industrial Cutting Emulsions in the Tropical Environment
Bacterial strains were isolated from in-use metal cutting fluids from 5 locations in Nigeria. They were identified as species of Bacillus, Proteus, Enterobacter, Lactobacillus, Corynebacterium, Chromobacterium and ...
Occurrence and Growth Potentials of Hydrocarbon-Degrading Bacteria on the Phylloplane of Some Tropical Plants
The surface of leaf samples from ten tropical plants, Anthocleista, Sarcophrynium, Canna, Colocassia, Musa, Cola, Citrus, Mangifera, Terminalia and Annona were cultured for the estimation of total heterotrophic and ...
A Study of Tannic Acid Degradation by Soil bacteria.
A tannin-degrading strain of Bacillus sp. AB1 was isolated from a garden soil by enrichment. This organism was able to utilize 1% (w/v) tannic acid-a gallotannin at 30°C and pH below 4.5 in a defined mineral medium where ...
Utilisation of Alicyclic Compounds by Soil Bacteria
Alicyclic compounds are recalcitrant hydrocarbons, they are a major component of crude oil and their fraction in the oil may be as high as 37%. They are used as industrial chemicals and are obtained via extraction from ...
