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 ...
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 ...
Microbial Degradation of Petroleum Hydrocarbons in a Polluted Tropical Stream.
Crude oil degradation was observed in water samples from three sites along the course of a polluted stream in Lagos, Nigeria. Consistent increase and decrease in the total viable counts (TVCs) of indigenous organisms ...
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 ...
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+, ...
