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...
Mechanisms of pressure-mediated cell death and injury in Escherichia coli: From fundamentals to food applicationsDownload
High hydrostatic pressure is commercially applied to extend the shelf life of foods, and to improve food safety. Current applications operate at ambient temperature and 600 MPa or less. However, bacteria that may resist this pressure level include the pathogens Staphylococcus aureus and strains...
