Effect of Corn Steep liquor on growth rate and Pyrene Degradation by Pseudomonas strain
(Springer Links, 2010)
The growth rates and pyrene degradation rates of Pseudomonas sp. LPl and Pseudomonas aeruginosa LP5 were increased in corn steep liquor (CSL) supplemented. On pyrene alone the higher specific growth rate of LPl was 0.818 ...
Metabolism of Atrazine in Liquid Cultures of soil Microcosms by Nocardioides strains isolated from a Contaminated Nigerian Agricultural Soil.
Atrazine-degrading microorganisms designated EAA-3 and EAA-4, belonging to the genus Nocardioides, were obtained from an agricultural soil in Nigeria. The degradation kinetics of the two strains revealed total ...
Degradation of hydrocarbons and biosurfactant production by Pseudomonas sp. strain LP1
(Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2007, 2009)
Pseudomonas sp. strain LP1, an organism isolated on the basis of its ability to grow on pyrene, was assayed for its degradative and biosurfactant production potentials when growing on crude, diesel and engine oils. The ...
Influence of pH, temperature and nutrient addition on the degradation of atrazine by Nocardioides spp. isolated from agricultural soil in Nigeria.
(MALAYSIAN JOURNAL OF MICROBIOLOGY, 2016)
Aims: To effectively exploit the atrazine degrading capabilities of Nocardioides spp. isolated from agricultural soil samples in Nigeria and ascertain the effect of pH, temperature and nutrient addition on the degradation ...
Hydrocarbon Degradation by Free-Living Nitrogen-Fixing Bacteria
Free-living nitrogen-fixing bacteria that could utilize crude oil as sole carbon and energy source were isolated from agricultural soil samples. Four isolates identified as Paenibacillus lautus, Brevibacillus agri, Bacillus ...
