Fruit, leaf and stem diseases of Carica papaya L.
Oniha, M. I. and Egwari, L. O. (2015).
Published at Journal of International Scientific Publications , Volume 3 , Pages 398-407 , Published in 2015
Control of C. papaya diseases requires intervention both on the field and post harvest. Leaf and stem diseases may spread to the fruit and result in poor fruit yields. This study described common papaya diseases of the fruit, leaf and stem with associated pathogens of C. papaya L. Powdery mildew affecting fruit, leaf and stem, necrotic stem, Phytophthora blight, stem end rot and Erwinia rot...
Predisposing factors to Carica papaya L fruit rots.
Egwari, L. O. and Oniha, M. I. (2015).
Published at Journal of International Scientific Publications , Volume 3 , Pages 408-415 , Published in 2015
Carica papaya L is famous for its latex and succulent vitamin rich fruit. However, the plant has little commercial value compared with citrus and mango possibly as a result of its many associated diseases. In this experiential study we determined field factors associated with C. papaya fruit rots. A three and half year observational study in a model research and demonstration farm revealed...
FACTORS ESSENTIAL FOR POST-HARVEST SHELF-LIFE EXTENSION OF CARICA PAPAYA L FRUITS
Egwari, L.O., Oniha, M.I. and Ogunbunmi, I. (2015).
Published at Journal of International Scientific Publications , Volume 3 , Pages 392-397 , Published in 2015
The burden of disease of Carica papaya L may account for its reduced commercial value. As much as the fruit is cherished amongst Nigerians its cultivation at commercial scale is limited. There are presently no industries in Nigeria utilizing the fruits or part of the plant for beverage production or in other industrial processes. This study was carried out to identify those factors that can...
In vitro antibacterial and antifungal activities of Chrysophyllum albidum and Diospyros mnbuttensis leave
Olasehinde, G.I., Okolie, Z.V., Oniha, M.I., Adekeye, B.T. and Ajayi, A.A. (2016).
Published at Journal of Pharmacognosy and Phytotherapy , Volume 8 , Issue 1 , Pages 1-7 , Published in 2016
Despite progress in the development of antibacterial agents, there are still special needs to find new antibacterial agents due to the development of multidrug resistance by bacteria and fungi. This study was conducted to investigate and compare the in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activities of the methanolic and ethanolic extracts of the leaves of Chrysophyllum albidum and Diospyros...
Antibiotic susceptibility patterns of bacteria species isolated from ice-cream vended in Ota and Lagos metropolis.
Obinna C. Nwinyi, Ebojie Obehi, Adesina Tomilola, Margaret I. Oniha and Olopade Bunmi
Published at Research Journal of Microbiology , Volume 12 , Issue 1 , Pages 50-57 , Published in 2017
Background: Most milk and milk products (ice-cream) could be a veritable avenue for the transmission of multidrug resistant genes among any community. In this study, antibiotic susceptibility patterns were surveyed in some selected ice-cream sold in Ota and Lagos metropolis. Materials and Methods: Samples of branded ice-creams were surveyed for antibiotic susceptibility patterns, a total of 9...
Isolation and screening of fungal isolates from bambara (Vigna subterranea) nuts for tannase production.
Ajayi, A.A., Adeniji, O.F., Egunjobi, A., Atolagbe O.M., Onibokun, E.A., Anosike, S. O. and Oniha, M.I.
Published at African Journal of Clinical and Experimental Microbiology , Volume 18 , Issue 3 , Pages 167-173 , Published in 2017
Tannase (Tannin acyl hydrolase, EC 22.214.171.124) is an enzyme produced in the presence of tannic acid by various filamentous fungi. They are produced principally by fungi of the genus Aspergillus and Penicillium. The enzyme is used in the food and beverage industry as a clarifying agent for wines, beers and fruit juices. In Africa, billions of dollars are expended yearly on the importation of co...
Studies on Staphylococcus aureus isolated from pimples.
Ajayi, A.A., Bibi, O., Oniha, M. I., Atolagbe, O. M., Anosike, S. O. and Onibokun, E. A.
Published at Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , Volume 20 , Issue 7 , Pages 350-354 , Published in 2017
Background and Objective: Pimples (acne) are small skin lesions or inflammations of the skin. The most common factor causing acne is the hormonal changes that occur during adolescent and teenage years. Antibiotics are becoming less effective in the treatment of pimples due to increasing concerns of antibiotic resistance. This study was therefore carried out to characterize the isolates from t...
