Promising Antimicrobial Activities of Malpighiaceae Family and Its Outcome for Oral Cavity Infectious Diseases

Posted on March 4, 2021Categories PharmaceuticalTags , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on Promising Antimicrobial Activities of Malpighiaceae Family and Its Outcome for Oral Cavity Infectious Diseases

Current medical therapies for oral infectious diseases are limited by the specificity and tolerance of pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and viruses, necessitating the production of novel substances. Plants have long been a source of active chemical agents; however, in the case of Malpighiaceae, a flowering plant family with secondary metabolites that have shown a range of pharmacological effects with promising results, further research is still needed. Because of the importance of oral infections to global human health and their effect on … Continue reading “Promising Antimicrobial Activities of Malpighiaceae Family and Its Outcome for Oral Cavity Infectious Diseases”

Association of Bacteria with Superficial Fungal Infections

Superficial fungal infections involving human hair, nails, epidermis, and mucosa are known as benign infections caused by pathogenic fungi. Because of their ability to cling and expand over and within the intact skin surface, fungal infections acquired this reputation, extracting nutrients from the skin as they are unable to produce their own food. Bacteria associated with superficial fungal infections were identified and determined by this research. In the Dermatophilosis Research Centre, National Veterinary Research Institute Vom, Plateau State, Nigeria, sample … Continue reading “Association of Bacteria with Superficial Fungal Infections”

Bacteriology and Antibiotic Susceptibility Profile of Isolates from Suya Samples in Khana Local Government Area, Rivers State, Nigeria

This study centred on the assessment of Suya’s ready-to – eat (RTE) bacteriology and antibiotic susceptibility profile. Samples were bought randomly from manufacturing sources and vendors, and a number of putative bacterial pathogens were isolated according to traditional microbiological protocols. Roasted and sold Suya aerobic plate counts (APCs) ranged from 2.4×104-1.39×105 CFUg-1 while total coliform counts (TCCs) ranged from 1.5×104-6.2×104 CFU / g. Ten (10) bacterial species, including six (6) Gram-positive and four (4) Gram-negative bacteria, were described in total. … Continue reading “Bacteriology and Antibiotic Susceptibility Profile of Isolates from Suya Samples in Khana Local Government Area, Rivers State, Nigeria”

The Existence of Bacteria in the Luminescent Organs of Loligo duvauceli

Posted on July 28, 2020Categories biological scienceTags , , , ,   Leave a comment on The Existence of Bacteria in the Luminescent Organs of Loligo duvauceli

This study aims to reveal the symbiosis between bacteria and luminescent organs of the Loligo duvauceli in the bioluminescence process. This research was conducted with the assumption that bioluminescence is not an innate ability of the organ itself. Bioluminescence occurs because of the mutual symbiosis between squid and bacteria that live in these organs. The symbiosis between bacteria and squid occurs in the form of horizontal symbiosis, where the bacteria originate from external environment and form symbiosis with its host … Continue reading “The Existence of Bacteria in the Luminescent Organs of Loligo duvauceli”
