Anti-Leishmania donovani antibodies enhance promastigotes internalization into host macrophage
Leishmania spp. promastigotes preferentially infect host macrophages, where parasite internalization is facilitated by several host and parasite surface molecules. This study aimed to demonstrate the role of humoral immunity in Leishmania parasite internalization into host macrophages. First, informed consent sera were obtained from 67 parasitologically confirmed visceral...
Phosphorus removal from Nigeriaâ€™s Agbaja iron ore by solubilization with Eurotium herbariorum
Phosphorus is an unwanted component of iron ore. Its removal from Nigeria’s Agbaja iron ore by solubilization with Eurotium herbariorum isolated from the ore samples has been achieved using the submerged culture technique. Result obtained shows 61.48% removal of P in 10 weeks through the biomass growth and activities of the filamentous fungus. The biomass dry weight of the...
