HemRaj Vashist, Avneet Gupta, Chiman Beri, R.B. Sharma

Plants has ever been an important part of human life in different ways. Number of herbals has been listed for their medicinal and cosmetics values. We can never miss out their role in the treatment of several diseases. Moreover, the plant based medicines has also being used for untreatable disease as there is no other option except them. Researchers are trying for the renaissance of the medicinal properties of herbals for different ailments. These work should brought in the notice of each concern man. Present work is therefore focused on the review of literature on Aloe vera and turmeric.


OPTIMIZATION OF INCUBATION TIME, R.P.M, INDUCER, INHIBITOR & IMMOBILIZATION ACTIVITY FOR -GALACTOSIDASE PRODUCTION USING ISOLATED AND MUTATED STRAINS FROM DAIRY WASTE THROUGH FERMENTATION

Shukla Ashish, Mishra Kamlapati & Tripathi Pushplata

This paper investigates the production & optimization of -galactosidase enzyme using synthetic medium by isolated wild strains (S1, S2) & mutated strains (M1, M2) through SSF & SmF. Among the different cell disintegration methods used, the highest specific activity was obtained when the cells were permeabilized using isoamyl alcohol. Wet lab experiments were performed to investigate the effects of incubation time on Vogels medium for -galactosidase enzyme activity using S1, S2 & M1, M2 strains through SSF. SmF experiments were performed for effects of incubation time in YLK2Mg medium on -galactosidase enzyme activity using S1, S2 & M1, M2 strains. Effect of R.P.M speed, inducer concentration, inhibitor concentration on -galactosidase enzyme production was also done using S1, S2 & M1, M2 strains. Results were found to be very appreciable and discussed in the paper.


TESTING OF ANTI-MYCOBACTERIAL ACTIVITY & PHYTOCHEMICAL PROFILING OF Glycyrrhiza uralensis, Pipper longum, Allium sativum, Zingiber officinale, Curcuma longa against Mycobacterium smegmatis

Vivek Kumar Srivastava , U. D. Gupta, Pushplata Tripathi

The aim of this study is to add knowledge and to identify the plants that could be sources of lead compounds for new tuberculosis drug development and to check the potentiality of anti-mycobacterium activity, investigation of bioactive compounds contained in medicinal plant showing the anti-tubercular activity in selected medicinal plants. The aqueous and alcoholic extracts of Glycyrrhiza uralensis, Pipper longum, Allium sativum, Zingiber officinale, Curcuma longa were studied. The result encouraged as the Allium sativum have the potentiality of anti-mycobacterium (anti-tubercular) activity.
