- Characterization of catalytic properties of hydrogenase isolated from the unicellular cyanobacterium Gloeocapsa alpicola CALU 743.
Serebryakova, L.; Sheremetieva, M. // Biochemistry (00062979); Dec2006, Vol. 71 Issue 12, p1370
The main catalytic properties of the Hox type hydrogenase isolated from the Gloeocapsa alpicola cells have been studied. The enzyme effectively catalyzes reactions of oxidation and evolution of H2 in the presence of methyl viologen (MV) and benzyl viologen (BV). The rates of these reactions in...
- NITROGEN-FIXATION BY NON-HETEROCYSTOUS CYANOBACTERIAIN AN ANTARCTIC ECOSYSTEM.
Pandey, Kapil D.; Kashyap, Ajai K.; Gupta, Rajan K. // Israel Journal of Plant Sciences; 2000, Vol. 48 Issue 4, p267
Unicellular, non-heterocystous, diazotrophic cyanobacteria Gloeocapsa sp. isolatedfrom Schirmacher Oasis, Antarctica, showed N 2 -fixation (C 2 H 2 -reduction) whichwas comparable to that of Gloeocapsa sp. isolated from a tropical rice field. The optimum temperature of the Antarctic isolate for...
- Growth inhibitory activity of selected microalgae and cyanobacteria towards human cervical carcinoma cells (HeLa).
Gigova, Liliana G.; Toshkova, Reneta A.; Gardeva, Elena G.; Gacheva, Gergana V.; Ivanova, Natalia J.; Yossifova, Liliya S.; Petkov, Georgi D. // Journal of Pharmacy Research; Dec2011, Vol. 4 Issue 12, p4702
Although a large number of strains have been shown to possess anticancer activity, the microalgal and cyanobacterial potential is still largely unexplored. The present study was aimed to evaluate and compare the growth inhibitory activity of 33 extracts, 15 fatty acid mixtures and five...
- Resistance of Cyanobacterial Fouling on Architectural Paint Films to Cleaning by Water Jet.
Shirakawa, Marcia; Loh, Kai; John, Vanderley; Gaylarde, Christine // Current Microbiology; Apr2012, Vol. 64 Issue 4, p312
Mortar panels painted with three different white acrylic coatings were exposed to the environment in urban (São Paulo) and rural (Pirassununga) sites in Brazil for 7 years. After this time, all panels were almost equally discoloured, and paint detachment was observed to only a small degree. The...
