Article
The plant extracts are being significantly used in the treatment of various infectious diseases and have a greater impact in Unani medicines. This presentation explores the effects of test plant extracts of garlic and ginger juice and aqueous extracts of coriander and mint prepared in ethanol, methanol and acetaldehyde with the comparison of chlora...

The present study demonstrates the synthesis and antimicrobial activity of the p-tetranitrocalix[4]arene (3). The microbial activity was determined against a variety of microorganisms, i.e., Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial strains such as Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 10231, Streptococcus viridans ATCC 12392, Escherichia coli ATCC 8739, as w...

AIM: Hepatitis C viral infection is a major health issue in the globe especially in developing countries like in Pakistan with prevalence rate of about 6% of the total population. True epidemiological data in developing countries about this infection is almost inadequate. The main objective of this study was determined the existence of different HC...

Background: Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) is the major cause of viral hepatitis. A few studies revealed that HCV genotypes; 3a, 3b, 1a and 1b are the most common genotypes found in the general population of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Aims and Objective: The current is designed to find out the prevalence of HCV genotypes among both sexes of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa....

Plants have been significantly used since the ancient times due to the presence of diverse chemical compounds having therapeutic nature against various disorders and the infectious diseases of humans. Herbs and spices have been known for human diet but spices possess some allergic chemicals that’s why the search for drugs and dietary supplements de...
Article
Fermentation is the new mode of achieving new and finished products from the microbial sources within the required parameters. It is widely used to make variety of useful products by the action of microbial enzymes. This study deals with the growth parameters of S. cerevisiae strains for its maximum/enhanced growth which is required for the higher...

The essence of bioconversion of sugar containing materials by the use of screened microbial source is the significant need of today. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is one of the common and the cheapest source of bioconversion of substrate to the higher yield of bioethanol under the controlled optimization parameters. In the present study Saccharomyces ce...
Article
Two strains KA-1 & AAN-2 of Saccharomyces cerevisiae were used as a tool for fermentation and the studies for optimization of different parameters for ethanol yield from corn steep liquor were undertaken. The maximum yield was obtained after 72 hr. at 30 C, 120 rpm in shake flask fermentation. Ethanol production by shake flask fermentation revealed...
