THERMODYNAMICS AND KINETICS OF THERMO-INACTIVATION AND REGENERATION OF PARTIALLY PURIFIED PEROXIDASE FROM Gongronema latifolium LEAVES

ABSTRACT Peroxidase activity from G. latifolium was done to see whether it could be used in industries. Crude peroxidase was extracted from G. latifolium with 0.05M sodium phosphate buffer of pH 6.0; 70% ammonium sulphate saturation to precipitated protein with the highest G. latifolium peroxidase activity. After gel filtration, two major peaks were seen and […]

BIODEGRADATION KINETICS OF THE HERBICIDE, ROUNDUP BY SOME SOIL MICROORGANISMS

ABSTRACT Bacterial biodegradation of xenobiotics has been seen as one of the biological means of bioremediation of polluted site. This study was designed to isolate bacteria from soil and to evaluate their ability to biodegrade glyphosate which is a water soluble, non-selective herbicide used to kill weeds, especially annual broadleaf weeds and grasses known to […]
