Solanum melongena L.

Published In: (International Journal of Current Microbiology and Applied Sciences)

K.S.Rangasamy College of Technology Tiruchengode.

Brinjal is a tropical vegetable cultivated throughout the tropical regions of India. The varieties of Solanum melongena L. display a wide range of fruit shapes and colors. An experiment was conducted for the production of tolerant variety with the native variety of brinjal cv. Valuthalai produce long and white coloured fruits. The callus regeneration efficiency of tender shoot tip, hypocotyls, leaf and stem explant were analysed using MS basal media supplemented with different combinations and concentrations of phytohormones. The frequency of callus induction for shoot tip, hypocotyls, leaves, stem explant were 76.43%, 81.56%, 74.37% and 84.92% respectively and the maximum proliferation found at 0.6mg/l 2, 4-D. The maximum efficiency of multiple shooting was obtained at 0.2mg/l BAP and 0.6mg/l NAA and o.4 mg/l IAA. The successful rooting was recorded on media supplemented with 0.4mg/l of IBA.

The regenerated plant shoot tips and callus were infected with Agrobacterium tumefaciens by co-cultivation process. The infected callus was regenerated in the 250mg/l kanamycin and 300mg/l cefatoxime effectively with the time duration of 52 hours. The transformed plantlets with the T-DNA insertion were determined with the rate of germination.

Mini project :



A novel approach to bioleach phosphorus from rock phosphate, involving the bio-reduction of sulfur by adapted Thiobacillus ferrooxidans (NCIM 5370) and the product of sulfuric acid to dissolve rock phosphate, has been proposed in this paper. The initial pH for the growth of microbe was 2.0.At different concentrations of pulp density from 1% to 5%, the maximum of 12% phosphorus was leached in 1% pulp density concentration. The maximum of 14% phosphorus from 0.75% was leached at different sulphur concentration varying of 0.25% to 1.25%. By using various parameters such as pH versus time, ROP versus time, sulfate production versus time, the maximum amount of phosphorus leached was estimated. Time taken to determine various parameter analogs were 20 days. The particle size of rock phosphate was 0.05mm. Phosphorus leached was estimated by Barton's reagent involving the action of Ammonium metavanadate and Ammonium molybdate. The soluble phosphorus could be leached more effectively in the presence of sulfur by Thiobacillus ferrooxidans. The bacterium should be appropriately adapted with sulphur, which makes easier to bioleach soluble phosphorus from rock phosphate.

Major project:


Hepatic steatosis or nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an infiltration of fat inside hepatocytes, usually exceeding 5% of the liver wet weight. Three probiotics which were used for the study includes Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Bacillus subtilis. The aim of the study was to determine the effect of probiotics against steatohepatitis using HepG2 cell line.Microbial metabolites were treated against triglyceride induced hepatocytes to determine the rate of lipid reduction. From the growth kinetics data, the microbial cultures were incubated for 24 – 48 hours of incubation for the extraction.

Late log phase to stationary phase cells exhibit bioactive metabolite insight for their maximum activity. From the Bradford assay, it was found that the concentration of the protein which was extracted from Bacillus subtilis was about 500mg/ml and from Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus it was about 125mg/ml determined from the standard curve. Various concentrations of BSA: OA were used to optimize the efficient concentration of hepatic steatosis in vitro for the further study. It was observed from the Oil-Red-O staining, that 2mMOA:1mM BSA induced higher lipid accumulation.

Cell free supernatants of Bacillus subtilis showed 30.79% whereas Lactobacillus plantarum showed 25% and Lactobacillus rhamnosus showed 15% reduction in lipid accumulation from the 5ul of sample. Among the three probiotics, acetone precipitated sample from B.subtilis showed maximum reduction in triglyceride accumulation which constitutes about 38% while 20% reduction in L.plantarum and 27% in L.rhamnosus of their nontoxic concentration chosen. From the cell lysates, the lipid reduction was about 56% in the 10ul of B.subtilis sample. It was about 36% reduction in 5ul of L.plantarum and 53% in 50ul of L.rhamnosus cell lysates. From the overall observation, it was confirmed that B.subtilis metabolites were efficient in the reduction of hepatic steatosis.
