Qualitative Phytochemical Analysis, Antimicrobial Activity and Cytotoxic Effect of Moringa concanensis Nimmo Leaves

Background and Objective: Moringa concanensis Nimmo belongs to the family Moringaceae. This plant is abundantly seen in Perambalur district, Tamilnadu, commonly known as Kattu murungai. Around 20 types of human ailments can be cured by different parts of M. concanensis Nimmo plant. The main objective of this work was phytochemical analysis, antimicrobial activity and cytotoxic activity of M.concanensis leaves. Materials and Methods: The qualitative phytochemical analysis was performed as per the standard procedures previously described. The well diffusion method was used to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of M. concanensis leaves. The MTT assay was used to screen the cytotoxic activity of M. concanensis leaves. The values were expressed as Mean±SD. Significant difference have been observed using one-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) by SPSS software version 19.0. The p

Opine dehydrogenases (ODHs) from the bacterial pathogens Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Yersinia pestis perform the final enzymatic step in the biosynthesis of a new class of opine metallophores, which includes staphylopine, pseudopaline, and yersinopine, respectively. Growing evidence indicates an important role for this pathway in metal acquisition and virulence, including in lung and burn-wound infections (P. aeruginosa) and in blood and heart infections (S. aureus). Here, we present kinetic and structural characterizations of these three opine dehydrogenases. A steady-state kinetic analysis revealed...

l Ryu In response to increasing concern over antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, the development of novel antimicrobials has been called for, with bacteriophage endolysins having received considerable attention as alternatives to antibiotics. Most staphylococcal phage endolysins have a modular structure consisting of an N-terminal cysteine, histidine-dependent amidohydrolases/peptidase domain (CHAP), a central amidase domain, and a C-terminal cell wall binding domain (CBD). Despite extensive studies using truncated staphylococcal endolysins, the precise function of the amidase domain has not been determined. He...

Abstract Pathogens cause significant morbidity and mortality to humans. Thus, development of fast and reliable methods for detection and identification of pathogens is urgently needed to increase protection level of public health and ensure the safety of consumers. Herein, a rapid and sensitive method has been developed for Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) detection based on the dual role of polydopamine modified magnetic nanoparticles (PDA@Fe3O4 NPs) combined with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and capillary electrophoresis (CE). The core-shell type structure PDA@Fe3O4 NPs were prepared, which are spherical, ab...

Authors: Tadesse S, Alemayehu H, Tenna A, Tadesse G, Tessema TS, Shibeshi W, Eguale T Abstract BACKGROUND: Staphylococcus aureus is one of the major pathogens of public health importance responsible for various forms of infection. Development of resistance to commonly used antimicrobials limited treatment options against infections due to this pathogen. Antimicrobial resistance profile of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from patients with surgical site infection and ear infection and corresponding nasal swab was investigated in Tikur Anbessa Specialized Hospital (TASH), Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. METHODS: Wound and ...

Dinesh Kumar Different concentrations (2, 4, 6, and 8 mole %) of cobalt doped cerium oxide nanoparticles (CeO2:Co NPs) were synthesized by hydrothermal method. The synthesized samples were characterized by using various techniques to understand their structural, optical and surface morphological properties. The face-centred cubic (FCC) structure of the CeO2:Co NPs was identified from the X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. The calculated crystallit...
