chiral inversion of drug: role of intestinal bacteria in the stereoselective sulphoxide reduction of flosequinan.chiral inversion at a sulphoxide position of flosequinan enantiomers [(+/-)-7-fluoro-1-methyl-3-methylsulphinyl-4-quinolone] occurred in conventional rats but not in either germ-free rats or rats treated with antibiotics after an oral administration of each enantiomer. thus, it was postulated that the chiral inversion occurred by mechanisms mediated by intestinal bacteria. the intestinal content isolated from conventional rats reduced r(+)- and s(-)-flosequinan to produce the sulphide, while int ...19948053920
bioremediation of phenol by alkaliphilic bacteria isolated from alkaline lake of lonar, india.phenol is an industrially important compound which has a wide range of applications. being highly soluble in water, it appears as the major pollutant in waste waters arising from both phenol manufacturing and from industrial units that utilise phenol. because of its toxicity, bioremediation of phenol is necessary. since some of the phenol-bearing industrial waste waters are alkaline in nature, use of alkaliphilic bacteria for bioremediation of phenol was investigated. alkaliphilic bacteria were ...199821182701
