Cover for Media preparation for <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">in vitro</i> culture of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Ganoderma</i>.

The preparation of growth media is the first step in isolating any microorganism (bacteria and fungi) from the environment. Media may be solid or liquid. The culture medium formulation will affect the success of mycelium growth in culture. Although there are many culture media described for fungi,...

Cover for Collecting <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Ganoderma</i> isolates and culture preparation.

Ganoderma may be isolated from the basidiocarp (the sporophore of basidiomycete), infected palm tissues (trunk or roots) or from single basidiospores; these sources produce abundant Ganoderma mycelia in culture (Ho and Nawawi, 1986). Water agar (WA) or Ganoderma selective medium (GSM) is used as...

Cover for Structural and functional properties of glutamate dehydrogenases.

Glutamate dehydrogenases are homooligomeric enzymes that catalyse the reversible oxidative deamination of glutamate to 2-oxoglutarate, thereby linking nitrogen metabolism and the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Four different classes of the enzyme are known in microbes that differ in size and cofactor...

Cover for Archaea, a useful group for unconventional energy production: methane production from sugarcane secondary distillation effluents using thermotolerant strains.

Some kinetic data indicate that thermophilic archaea might be of use in anaerobic reactors where microbial biota can metabolize contaminants in secondary effluents of industrial processes and transform them into methane-rich biogas, producing natural gas as a cleaner energy source and...

Cover for Effect of long-term <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">in vitro</i> subculturing on quality degeneration of sweetpotato varieties: morpho-anatomic assessment and simple sequence repeat (SSR) analysis.

True-to-type clonal fidelity is one of the most important prerequisites in micropropagation of crop species. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of long-term in vitro subculturing on the variety degeneration of three sweetpotato varieties (Monate, Mokone and Ndou). Monate was subcultured ...
