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 ...
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 ...
Pyrene-Degrading Potentials of Pseudomonas Species Isolated from Polluted Soils.
(Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2007, 2008-07-04)
Three Pseudomonas species isolated from oil polluted soil in Lagos, Nigeria were studied for their pyrene degradation potentials. These isolates exhibited broad substrate specificities for hydrocarbon substrates including ...
Bacteria with dual resistance to elevated concentrations of heavy metals and antibiotics in Nigerian Contaminated Systems.
(Oyetibo, et al (2010). Bacteria with dual resistance to elevated concentrations of heavy metals and antibiotics in Nigerian Contaminated Systems. Environ Monit Assess 168:305–314, 2009)
Samples of soil, water, and sediments from industrial estates in Lagos were collected and analyzed for heavy metals and physicochemical composition. Bacteria that are resistant to elevated concentrations of metals (Cd2+, ...
Extensive Biodegradation of polychlorinated Biphenyls in Aroclor 1242 and electrical Transformer Fluid (Askarel) by natural Strains of Microorganisms indigenous to contaminated African Systems
Evidence for substantial aerobic degradation of Aroclor 1242 and Askarel fluid by newly characterized bacterial strains belonging to the Enterobacter, Ralstonia and Pseudomonas genera is presented. The organisms exhibited ...
Carbazole Degradation in the Soil Microcosm by Tropical Bacterial Strains
(Sociedade Brasileira de Microbiologia, 2015)
In a previous study, three bacterial strains isolated from tropical hydrocarbon-contaminated soils and phylogenetically identified as Achromobacter sp. strain SL1, Pseudomonas sp. strain SL4 and Microbacterium esteraromaticum ...
