Research Interests:

  • R plasmid mediated drug resistance among bacteria: The number of the microorganisms not responding to the treatment has progressively increased and it has been a global problem. Variable genetic elements are a major cause of drug resistance transfer among microorganisms. The antibiotic preparations may contain the producers’ drug immunity resistance elements, which get inserted into the infecting sensitive bacteria. We have been working on the mode and mechanisms of antibiotic resistance transfer among indigenous nosocomial bacteria and M. tuberculosis. PCR based identification has been followed. This will help the health care and therapeutic managers to plan out the strategies.
  • Oxidative stress mediated DNA repair: The potential of reactive oxygen species (ROS) for oxidative stress is enormous and a major contributing factor in aging, cancer, heart ailments, neurological and genetic disorders. The human and bacterial cells have evolved antioxidant “repair strategies” to counter the damages but to a certain limit. We have undertaken the research at the level of bacterial genome in order to understand the generation of oxidative damage(s) and the strategic mechanisms that dilute defer out these modifications.
  • Bacteriocins and Microbial Bioactive Metabolites: Bacteriocins have proved broad-basely instrumental against human, animal and plant infecting microorganisms and even against certain malignant (tumour) cells. In addition, they have successfully been used as food preservatives and in health care products. Benefits may far exceed those envisioned currently. We have been engaged in isolation – characterization of these “Natural Killers” from a variety of microorganisms. A mega staphylococcin has been isolated, purified and characterized.
    The work on extracellular industrially important enzyme from sub optimal habitat is in progress.
  • AIDS Prevalence in Pakistan; Anti HIV indigenous herbal drug therapeutic interventions: A miraculous success has been met with indigenous herbal drugs (in vitro anti HIV bioactivity screening conducted at Nagoya University, Japan). HIV sero reactivity was converted to non-reactivity after patient friendly herbal drug administration.
