Bacteriophages are considered to be the most abundant and potentially the most diverse form of life on earth. Phage receptor binding proteins (RBPs), which allow phages to specifically target their host bacteria, consequently represent a massive diversity of bacterial targeting proteins. These...
Salmonella survives in low moisture products over an extended time. Salmonella also resists dry heat, which questions the assumption that Salmonella outbreaks from intermediate moisture foods result mostly from post-processing contamination. Some Enterobacteriaceae possess a genomic island called...
Specific detection of Campylobacter jejuni using the bacteriophage NCTC 12673 receptor binding protein as a probeDownload
Campylobacter jejuni is found in the intestines of poultry, cattle, swine, wild birds and pet animals and is the major cause of foodborne gastroenteritis in developed countries. We report the use of the receptor binding protein (RBP) of Campylobacter bacteriophage NCTC 12673 for the specific...
Prevalence of Salmonella in beef cattle lymph nodes and the role of iron uptake proteins in Salmonella growth and survival in food productsDownload
Salmonella enterica subspecies Enteritidis and Typhimurium are the cause of most cases foodborne salmonellosis. Salmonella is predominately found in poultry, beef and dairy products. It is an intracellular pathogen, known to enter the lymphatic system and it has been found in the lymph nodes of...
The intestinal microbiota has been found to play a central role in the colonization of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium in the gastrointestinal tract. In this study, we present a novel process through which Salmonella benefit from inflammatory induced changes in the microbiota in order to...
Microbiological quality of organic vegetables produced in soil treated with different types of manure and mineral fertilizerDownload
An attempt was made to evaluate microbiological quality of horticultural crops grown organically. Three species of vegetables were used, lettuce (Lactuva sativa), radish (Raphanus sativus) and spinach (Tetragonia expansa), grown organically, in fertile soil. Six different treatments were applied:...
One potential role of miRNAs is to buffer variation in gene expression, although conflicting results have been reported. To investigate the buffering role of miRNAs in response to Salmonella infection in pigs, we sequenced miRNA and mRNA in whole blood from 15 pig samples before and after...
Background Efflux pumps belonging to the resistance-nodulation-division (RND) superfamily in bacteria are involved in antibiotic resistance and solvent tolerance but have an unknown physiological role. EmhABC, a RND-type efflux pump in Pseudomonas fluorescens strain cLP6a, extrudes hydrophobic...
