Evaluation of crayfish chaff charcoal agar as a transport medium for anaerobes
Egwari, Louis Osayenum, Nwokoye, Nkiru Nneye and Oniha, Margaret Ikhiwili
Published at Scientific Research and Essays , Volume 8 , Issue 23 , Pages 1107-1111 , Published in 2013
A laboratory formulated crayfish chaff charcoal agar (CCCA) was evaluated both as transport and storage medium for anaerobic bacteria in parallel with Amies charcoal agar (ACA), cooked meat medium (CMM) and thioglycollate broth (TCB). The survival of anaerobes in swab obtained clinical specimens and viability of specific anaerobes in these media were assessed. Eight genera of anaerobes (Bactero...
Process and mathematical model in the formulation of microbiological media from the exoskeleton of crustaceans.
Egwari, L. O and Oniha, M. I.
Published at Journal of Emerging Trends in Engineering and Applied Sciences(JETEAS)) , Volume 5 , Issue 8 , Pages 206-209 , Published in 2014
Culture media are very central in the study of microorganisms. Most microbiological media are formulated with beef or soya as protein source. The need for cheaper source of raw material is exploited with the use of exoskeleton of crabs (Callinectes amnicola; shell only) and shrimps (Penaeus notialis; head, shell and appendages). The mathematical model for the formulation derived and the formula...
Clostridium perfringens toxin gene typing and whole cell protein profile.
Egwari, L.O., Oghogho, E.S., Okwumabua, O. E. and Oniha, M.I.
Published at South Asian Journal of Experimental Biology , Volume 4 , Issue 3 , Pages 127-132 , Published in 2014
The spectrum of C. perfringens infections ranges from food toxinosis to myonecrosis. Whole cell protein and toxin gene types were profiled in 12 randomly selected C. perfringens veterinary stock cultures from the University of Wisconsin, Madison to determine epidemiological similarity, or diversity amongst strains of animal origin. Whole cell protein analysis was done by SDS-PAGE while toxin ge...
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...
