SivaramakrishnanAbstractMagnesium oxide (MgO) nanostructures were prepared using microwave-assisted (M 1) and hydrothermal (M 2) methods and characterized by XRD, SEM and FT-IR. It exhibits cubic structure with an average crystallite size of 20 nm (M 1) and 14 nm (M 2) and the lattice strain (WH plot) is 0.0017 (M 1), 0.0037 (M 2). It's spherical and rods like structures are confirmed through SEM and TEM. The vibrational stretching mode of M...

In this study, we demonstrated that bacteriocin produced by Lactobacillus brevis DF01 was partially purified and investigated whether the bacteriocin inhibited the biofilm formation of Escherichia coli and Salmonella Typhimurium. Assessment by the microtiter plate method, as well as by fluorescence and scanning electron microscopy, showed that the biofilm formation of E. coli and S. Typhimurium was reduced when the bacteria was co-incubated with crude bacteriocin of L. brevis DF01 (DF01 bacteriocin). Although pre-treated DF01 bacteriocin also significantly inhibited the biofilm formation of E. coli and S. Typhimurium (P=0....

This study provided the first scientific evidence of T3SS prohibiting and antibacterial properties for the traditional knowledge in Myanmar of using plants as medicines for treating infections and gastrointestinal disease. Further researches are proposed to discover the active chemical compounds and mechanism of L. scandens (Roxb.) Buch.-Ham. ex Wight &Arn, M. nagi Thunb., T. citrina Roxb. ex Fleming, T. vulgaris L., and C. bejolghota (Buch.-Ham.) Sweet as antivirulence drugs and the potential of M. gagei J.R.Drumm and M. ferrea L. as new broad spectrum plant antibiotics. PMID: 30402120 [PubMed]

AbstractBioactive composite films were obtained by addingLactobacillus paracasei into a hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC) ‐konjac flour (KF) matrix through a casting method. The mechanical, optical, and barrier properties were tested to determine the influence of the addition of lactobacilli into complex films. For purpose of evaluating the surface morphology of the composite films, scanning electron microscopy and a tomic force microscopy were carried out. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy andX‐ray diffraction analyses were conducted to evaluate intermolecular interactions and crystallinity, respectively. Moreover, ...

In this study, 13 endophytic fungi strains were isolated from orchids, Dendrobium nobile, Dendrobium hibiki, and Oncidium altissimum. Two strains namely KDH5 and VDN3B were reported for the synthesis of SNPs by using 1 mM and 10 mM of silver nitrate solutions respectively. The present of SNOs was observed in wavelength ranging from 400 nm to 450 nm corresponding to the plasmon absorbance of SNPs. By applying various volume ratio of silver nitrate solution to fungal extracellular metabolites filtrate (FEMF), the UV-Vis spectrum showed an increasing trend of absorption intensity indicated that the concentration of SNPs synth...

Once pH is a determinant factor to the development of microorganisms in food, we investigated the antimicrobial activity of RL under different pH values. The antimicrobial activity of RL against the Gram-p...
