Complex II, or succinate dehydrogenase, is a vital component of aerobic life. Its function is critical for both the tricarboxylic acid cycle and the mitochondrial respiratory chain since it catalyzes the oxidation of succinate to fumarate, liberating two electrons that feed into the lipid-soluble...
The mechanism of heat resistance in an exceptionally resistant strain of E. coli was investigated. E. coli AW1.7 was compared to a heat sensitive strain, E. coli GGG10. The heat resistance of both strains was increased by inclusion of NaCl, but only E. coli AW1.7 exhibited a consistent heat...
Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) is a worldwide health concern. To detect STEC, a loop mediated isothermal amplification reaction (LAMP) was optimized to detect shiga toxin genes. LAMP’s performance was compared to conventional and real-time (RT) PCR using two product detection...
Application of antimicrobials for the elimination of Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes in brine injected beefDownload
The application of antimicrobials to a brine-injected raw beef roast for the elimination/inhibition of heat resistant Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes was investigated. The choice of antimicrobials for use in brine injected beef was based on minimum bactericidal concentration in brine...
Heat and Pressure Resistance of Escherichia coli and Its Inactivation In the Presence of Antimicrobial CompoundsDownload
Verotoxigenic Escherichia coli (VTEC) are pathogens causing severe foodborne disease. E. coli AW1.7 is a heat resistant beef carcass isolate that may be used as a surrogate organism to study the survival of VTEC on food. This dissertation examines the heat and pressure resistance of E. coli and...
Environmental Risk Factors Associated with Contamination of Private Drinking Water Wells with Escherichia coliDownload
The focus of this research was to identify environmental risk factors that play a critical role in the contamination of drinking water wells with Escherichia coli. This study used data from a case control-study carried out between April 2005 and September 2006 in Ontario and Alberta, using...
The Cpx envelope stress response of Escherichia coli regulates and is regulated by the small RNA RprADownload
When bacteria sense changes in their environment, they adapt by altering the expression of their genes in such a way that accommodates the change. To do this, bacterial cells can modulate the activity of their genes at either the level of transcription, or at the post-transcriptional level....
