SummarySo far, majority of the preventive effect of
prebiotics has been on animal models. However, several in vitro studies using
2D and 3D cell cultures mimicking the environmental condition as well as
various organisms present within the gut of man had shown the efficacy of
prebiotics in reducing the attachment of enteropathogenic organisms like S. typhi to the gut epithelium. In vivo
studies with human have been able to prove its efficacy in preventing diseases
such as Inflammatory b...
The study aimed at producing amylase
from corn stem using Mucor and Fusarium in solid state fermentation.
The Fungi used in this study were isolated from the rhizosphere of the corn
plant. Solid state technique was adopted for the fermentation process using
spore suspension as inoculum. Various fermentation parameters such as incubation days, addition of salt supplement,
substrate concentration, mycelia suspension and temperature were optimized
during fermentation with the...
