A REVIEW ON ANTI-BIOFILM INHIBITOR FROM PLANT ESSENTIAL OILS

Bacteria predominantly remain in a self-produced polymeric matrix, adherent to an inert or living surface. This microenvironment community of bacteria is known as biofilm. Commonly visualized as a slimy layer, a number of unique features distinguish biofilms from their planktonic counterparts. Formation of biofilms depends on the extracellular signals, mechanical, biochemical, environmental condit...

PURIFICATION STRATEGIES FOR MICROBIAL PHYTASE

Phytase catalyzes the formation and release of inorganic phosphate from phytic acid. A few monogastric animals that lack phytase is incapable of digesting phytate obtained from plants and gets excreted, which results in the accumulation of phosphorus in the form of phytate in the environment which has a detrimental effect. In order to combat this problem, researchers have focused on production and...
