How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Kamaluddeen Kabir currently works at the Department of Microbiology, Umaru Musa Yar'adua University Katsina. Kamaluddeen does research in Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology.
Published in: IOSR Journal of Biotechnology & Biochemistry, 7(4), 48-60. Background: The nexus between hydrocarbon degradation, heavy metal tolerance and antimicrobial resistance is critical in bioremediation and environmental health, and is being continually explored in these research spheres, of recent. As its contribution to this research subfie...
Ready-to-eat vegetables and fruits have intrinsic properties predisposing them to microbial contamination especially in the absence of quality control. Recently, the increase in consumables' bio-burden, manifested as the accumulation of potential pathogenic microbes therein, trigger occurrence of food related ailments, associated with morbidity and...
Tuberculosis (TB) is known to be one of the oldest forms of human diseases which still remain the leading cause of death worldwide. It is characterized as a pulmonary disease which occurs due to accumulation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) onto the lungs alveolar surfaces. M. tuberculosis is an implicated pathogenic bacteria associated with T.B...
Bacterial bio-surfactants have a wide range of biological functions and biotechnological applications. Previous analyses had suggested a limit to their reduction of aqueous liquid surface tensions (γMin), and here we confirm this in an analysis of 25 Pseudomonas spp. strains isolated from soil which produce high-strength surfactants that reduce sur...
Biosurfactants which reduce the surface or interfacial tension of liquids and act as emulsifiers, foaming and dispersing agents with low toxicity, are increasingly finding applications in biotechnology and driving the search for novel compounds for further exploitation. Potential biosurfactants sourced from bacteria are often selected first by qual...
A study was conducted to evaluate the influence of sewage sludge on biodegradation of engine oil in contaminated soil. Soil samples were collected from a mechanics workshop in Sokoto metropolis. The Soil samples were taken to the laboratory for isolation of engine oil degrading bacteria. About 1 g of soil sample was used to inoculate 9 ml of trypti...
It has been repeatedly reported that Campylobacter is the main cause of bacterial enteritis in the Europe and many developed countries in the world. The risk analysis on Campylobacter includes risk assessment, risk management and risk communication which has explored the risk of Campylobacter to humans as a result of handling and consumption of und...
This project has the overall aim of elucidating the roles played by indigenous bacteria in the rhizobiome of Sorghum bicolor towards enhanced phytoremediation of heavy metals contaminated soils.
The goal of these project is as follow -To isolate, identify and screen bacterial isolates for heavy metals utilization from oil contaminated site and organic wastes -To investigate heavy metal tolerance profile among the isolates -To further characterize isolates for microbial susceptibility test using M13 and M14 antibiotic disc
This project aims to investigate the diversity, chemical ecology and functionality of Pseudomonas secondary metabolites obtained from different plant and soil systems within the tropics. Main metabolites of study include cyclic lipopeptides, phenazines and related others.
