Biodegradation of hydrocarbons in the presence of nickel and cobal
(Wiley-Vch Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim., 2013-11)
Growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa LP 5 on 2,5-Dichlorobenzoate: Detection of Aromatic Ring Hydroxylating Dioxygenase Gene
Pseudomonas aeruginosa LP5 grew on 2, 5-dichlorobenzoate with doubling time (D) 6.64 d and mean growth rate (k) 0.104 d-1. The organism showed a prolonged lag period lasting 9 days followed by a sudden rise within ...
Chromium (VI) Biosorption Properties of Multiple Resistant Bacteria Isolated from Industrial Sewerage
(Springer Netherlands, 2013-08)
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 ...
Characterization of lignocellulolytic bacterial strains associated with decomposing wood residues in the Lagos lagoon, Nigeria
Aims: The presence of lignocelluloses, especially sawdust in the Lagos lagoon and the attendant ecological problems warranted studies on their degradation. This study aimed to isolate and identify the indigenous bacterial ...
Metal Biouptake by Actively Growing Cells of Metal-Tolerant Bacterial Strains
(Springer International Publishing, 2015-08)
Metal uptake potentials of Pseudomonas aeruginosa CA207Ni, Burkholderia cepacia CA96Co, Rhodococcus sp. AL03Ni, and Corynebacterium kutscheri FL108Hg were studied to determine their competence in detoxification of toxic ...
Microbial Assessment of the Armpits of Some Selected University Students in Lagos Nigeria.
A study of the carriage of microorganisms in armpits and prevailing factors was carried out on 80 students of the University of Lagos. The armpits were swabbed and the microbiological analyses were carried out on ...
Toxicity Evaluation of Waste Effluent from Cassava-Processing Factory in Lagos State, Nigeria using the Allium Cepa Assay
Mutagenic and genotoxic effects of cassava wastewater (CWW) were investigated by assay of Allium cepa root meristematic cells. The physicochemical parameters of the wastewater samples were also determined. In Allium root ...
Comparative Study of Biosurfactant Synthesis by Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from Clinical and Environmental Samples.
Evaluation of emulsifying activities indicates that biosurfactants were produced by an environmental (strain EPl) and a clinical (strain EPl) species of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. During growth on hydrocarbons, the ...
