Determination of Reduced and Total Glutathione Content in Extremophilic Microalga Galdieria phlegrea
Authors:  Giovanna Salbitani, Claudia Bottone and Simona Carfagna, date: 07/05/2017, view: 19472, Q&A: 3
Glutathione is an important molecule involved in the primary and secondary metabolism of all organisms. The Glutathione redox status is an indicator of the cellular redox state. Therefore, it is important to have precise methods on hand to determine ...
Extraction and Activity of O-acetylserine(thiol)lyase (OASTL) from Microalga Chlorella sorokiniana
Authors:  Giovanna Salbitani and Simona Carfagna, date: 06/20/2017, view: 10133, Q&A: 0
O-acetylserine(thiol)lyase (OASTL) is an enzyme catalysing the reaction of inorganic sulphide with O-acetylserine to form the S-containing amino acid L-cysteine. Here we describe an improved protocol to evaluate the activity of this enzyme from the ...

Identification and Quantification of Secondary Metabolites by LC-MS from Plant-associated Pseudomonas aurantiaca and Pseudomonas chlororaphis
Authors:  Izzah Shahid, Muhammad Rizwan and Samina Mehnaz, date: 01/20/2018, view: 10212, Q&A: 0
Increased antibiotic resistance of plants and human pathogens and continuous use of chemical fertilizers has pushed microbiologists to explore new microbial sources as potential antagonists. In this study, eight strains of Pseudomonas aurantiaca ...
