Cloning of the endomannanase from Scopulariopsis candida LMK008 and evaluation of its effect on the digestibility on animal feed. (2012)Present within the biodiverse hypersaline environment are a wide variety of halotolerant filamentous fungi. Many of these phytopathogens are capable of hydrolysing plant cell wall polysaccharides such as hemicellulose which ...

Detection of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae amongst neonates in a regional hospital in KwaZulu-Natal : screening for carbapenemase production and MIC correlation. (2014)Carbapenemases are the primary cause for the increase in carbapenem resistance in Gram- negative Enterobacteriaceae. These enzymes are β-lactamases and have the ability to hydrolyse almost all β-lactam antibiotics thereby ...
