Several obstacles to widespread use of bacteriocins in food have been identified, including lack of specific, rapid quantitation methods, and little data on their efficacy in food systems. The first objective of this study was to develop a specific, rapid quantitation method for bacteriocins...
Investigation on the uptake of functional proteins and infectious prions into wheat plants through the root systemDownload
Prions are the proteinaceous particle responsible for infections in a class of neurodegenerative diseases. These diseases affect a number of mammals including cervids where it is termed Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). Prions enter the environment and persist for years. Plants have the ability to...
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...
To determine the impact of stress response on enumeration, cell association status and the viability of Escherichia coli DH5α, Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 13565 and Listeria monocytogenes CDC 7762 were evaluated using fluorescence microscopy and were compared with the outcomes of traditional plate...
Enterococcus faecalis 710C is a lactic acid bacterium that produces two bacterocins, ent7A and ent7B. Both ent7A and ent7B have strong activity against gram-positive food pathogens including Listeria spp., Clostridium spp., vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) and methicillin-resistant...
