Formation of taste-active amino acids, amino acid derivatives and peptides in food fermentations – A reviewDownload
Fermented foods are valued for their rich and complex odour and taste. The metabolic activity of food-fermenting microorganisms determines food quality and generates odour and taste compounds. This communication reviews the formation of taste-active amino acids, amino acid derivatives and...
3-Hydroxypropionic acid contributes to the antibacterial activity of glycerol metabolism by the food microbe Limosilactobacillus reuteriDownload
Strains of Limosilactobacillus reuteri are used as starter and bioprotective cultures and contribute to the preservation of food through the production of fermentation metabolites lactic and acetic acid, and of the antimicrobial reuterin. Reuterin consists of acrolein and 3-hydroxypropionaldehyde...
A taxonomic note on the genus Lactobacillus : Description of 23 novel genera, emended description of the genus Lactobacillus Beijerinck 1901, and union of Lactobacillaceae and LeuconostocaceaeDownload
Zheng, Jinshui, Wittouck, Stijn, Salvetti, Elisa, Franz, Charles M.A.P., Harris, Hugh M.B., Mattarelli, Paola, O'Toole, Paul W., Pot, Bruno, Vandamme, Peter, Walter, Jens, Watanabe, Koichi, Wuyts, Sander, Felis, Giovanna E., Gänzle, Michael G., Lebeer, Sarah
The genus Lactobacillus comprises 261 species (at March 2020) that are extremely diverse at phenotypic, ecological and genotypic levels. This study evaluated the taxonomy of Lactobacillaceae and Leuconostocaceae on the basis of whole genome sequences. Parameters that were evaluated included core...
Antifungal activity of secondary plant metabolites from potatoes (Solanum tuberosum L.): Glycoalkaloids and phenolic acids show synergistic effectsDownload
Aims To study the antifungal effects of the potato secondary metabolites α-solanine, α-chaconine, solanidine and caffeic acid, alone or combined. Methods and Results Resistance to glycoalkaloids varied among the fungal species tested, as derived from minimum inhibitory concentrations assays....
Antimicrobial activity of bioactive starch packaging films against Listeria monocytogenes and reconstituted meat microbiota on hamDownload
Contamination with spoilage organisms and Listeria monocytogenes are major concerns for quality and safety of cooked ready-to-eat (RTE) meat products. Thus, the objective of this study was to investigate the use of antimicrobial starch packaging films to control competitive microbiota and L....
Biochemical analysis of respiratory metabolism in the heterofermentative Lactobacillus spicheri and Lactobacillus reuteriDownload
Aims: This study evaluated the aerobic and respiratory metabolism in Lactobacillus reuteri and Lactobacillus spicheri, two heterofermentative species used in sourdough fermentation. Methods and Results: In silico genome analysis, production of metabolites and gene expression of pyruvate oxidase,...
Chitosan has attracted a growing attention as a food preservative due to its versatility, nontoxicity, biodegradability and biocompatibility. This review aims to provide a critical appraisal of the limitations and opportunities of the use of chitosan as a food preservative. The application of...
Characterization of the two nonidentical ArgR regulators of Tetragenococcus halophilus and their regulatory effects on arginine metabolismDownload
The halophilic lactic acid bacterium Tetragenococcus halophilus has been widely used in high-salinity fermentation processes of food. Previous studies have indicated that the catabolism of arginine may contribute to the osmotic stress adaptation of T. halophilus. Unusually, in the chromosome of...
Extracellular glycosyl hydrolases are uncommon in lactobacilli and include amylases and fructosidases mediating starch and fructan utilization, respectively. Extracellular arabinanases have not been described in lactobacilli. This study is aimed at identifying the function of an arabinan...
Characterization of α-Galactooligosaccharides formed via Heterologous Expression of α- 2 Galactosidases from Lactobacillus reuteri in Lactococcus lactisDownload
α-Galacto-oligosaccharides (α-GOS) are produced by transgalactosylation reactions of α-galactosidase (α-Gal) or by conversion of raffinose family oligosaccharides by levansucrase. Similarly to β-GOS, α-GOS have the potential to mimic glycan receptors on eukaryotic cells and act as molecular...
