Candida lipolytica isolated from Guanabara Bay and its ability to grow in marine and estuarine conditions

Abstract

Although the petroleum degrading ability of Candida lipolytica is well known, its ability to grow in seawater is questionable. Sixteen strains of C. lipolytica were isolated from marine sites in Rio de Janeiro. Some variations from the standard description were noted including strains intermediate between the varieties lipolytica and deformans. A representative strain which grew well on petroleum was found to grow well in marine and estuary conditions which reinforces its potential as a seed organism for marine oil spills.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
