Conference Paper
Full-text available
Mollusk research presents an intriguing avenue for discovering novel natural compounds with their potential applications. Despite the rich biodiversity of mollusk species in Bangladesh, scientific exploration of these resources remains limited. This study focuses on investigating the mucus of two distinct land snail species, Lissachatina fulica and...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Bangladesh has a potentially high biodiversity, but little is known about the actual state of the diversity. On the other hand, its ecosystem is greatly threatened by changes in human activities such as agricultural and industrial development. The genus Amphidromus is a land snail belonging to the family Camaenidae, often called tree snail as it li...
Article
Revealing the species and lineage diversity of a taxon is important for many biological studies of wildlife. In recent decades, DNA-based approaches have been widely utilised to elucidate the diversity of taxa, especially those that are difficult to distinguish based on morphological traits. This study focused on freshwater clams (Sphaeriidae) in J...
Article

Reliable identification of species is important for protecting native ecosystems against the invasion of non-native species. DNA barcoding using molecular markers, such as the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit 1 (COI) gene, helps researchers distinguish species. In this study, we focused on introduced veronicellid slugs in the Ryukyu Islands...

Microbial fuel cell is an alternative technology for energy generation aiming to recover chemical energy from biodegradable wastewater and convert it to electricity. In this study, a small laboratory-scale microbial fuel cell was evaluated to generate electricity using cheese whey wastewater as the sole nutrient source. The open-circuit potential a...
Article

To clarify the effect of niche conservatism on evolutionary history, we focused on freshwater snails, which have different ecological and phylogenetic properties from previously tested taxa. We conducted a phylogenetic analysis using 750 lymnaeid individuals from 357 sites of eleven Radix species. Then, we estimated the ancestral distribution using...

Article
Bradybaena similaris (Férussac, 1822) is an invasive land snail species native to East and Southeast Asia. Here we report the first record of B. similaris in Bangladesh, an introduced species in this country.
Article
Semiochemical substances were detected for the first time in terrestrial land snail species (Bradybaena similaris, eurBradybaena pellucida & Bradybaena circulas). We found snail behaviors resembling stimulation or attraction to these substances. These semiochemical substances act as attractant molecules or sex pheromones in snail species. No study...

Context: Hospital acquired infections (HAI) are among major causes of morbidity in developed and developing countries resulting to significant burden both for patients as well as public health (World Health Organization (2002). [1] Objectives: To determine the incidence of HAI, their risk factors, the infective agents and the outcome in a tertiary...
Article

Present study reveals a thorough investigation of nutritional values of three different varieties (Trounja, Lagou, Gounda) of Tunisian dates available in Bangladeshi local markets. Moisture and total solids were (13.2-14.1%) and (85.9-86.8%), respectively. Ash and crude fibers contents were (2.13-2.18%) and (6.05-6.9%), respectively. The dates were...
Article
Full-text available
Plants are one of the most essential elements on the environment and an important resource for human being. Plants provide food materials for human and animals. Alocasia indica a medicinal plant locally known as “Maan kochu” is found everywhere in Bangladesh and many other countries of the world. The present study includes nutritional analysis of A...
Article
Full-text available
Plants are good sources of pharmaceutical compounds, which confer resistance to pathogenic microorganisms. The aim of this study was to investigate the antimicrobial activity of ethanol extract of both leaves and stems of Alocasia indica L in vitro by the agar disc diffusion method. The plant showed antibacterial and antifungal activity against Gra...

Radish (Raphanus sativus L.) taproot shows amylolytic activity. However, data available on the differences in these amylolytic activities and starch content among radish cultivars in Bangladesh are quiet scanty. We analyzed the β-amylase activities and starch contents of 5 kinds of radish cultivar. The Tasaki cultivar showed the highest amylase act...

Medical and clinical investigations of plants have been making tremendous contributions of life sciences, health and medicine. Medicinal plants play an important role in the management of diabetes mellitus especially in developing countries where resources are meager. The present study was aimed at evaluating the effect of Alocasia indica L on bloo...

Antibacterial activity; Cytotoxic effect; Micrococcus sp SCS1. KEYWORDS ABSTRACT The xylanase producing bacterial strains were isolated from bamboo gar-den waste. The strains were isolated on xylan agar media and screening was carried out by xylanolysis method. To test the sensitivity of the iso-lates, seven different antibiotics were used. The str...
