Contribution of glutaminase activity in Lactobacillus reuteri to acid resistance and glutamine metabolism in sourdoughDownload
Sourdough is used as an additive in bread production for proper dough volume (leavening), or for desired dough acidity, or for dough texture and bread flavor improvement, or for bread shelf life extension. Lactobacillus reuteri, an intestinal isolate and a stable member of sourdough, prevails in...
Sourdough fermentation can generate various peptides and amino acids to improve bread quality, such as taste, flavor and texture. The aim of this PhD dissertation was to investigate the synthesis mechanisms of bioactive and taste active peptides or amino acids during fermentation and their effect...
Lactobacillus reuteri is a common organism in cereal-based foods and a gut symbiont in humans and animals, yet the molecular mechanisms allowing its persistence in various niches are not well understood. L. reuteri LTH2584 produces reutericyclin and persists in industrial sourdoughs, where acidic...
Lactobacilli are commonly used in food fermentations. Preservation and changes in food quality due to fermentation arise because of the growth, metabolism and enzymatic activity of these organisms. Enzymatic pathways of lactobacilli can also be exploited for the production of bioactive...
Microbiota are ubiquitous in nature. Similarities as well as differences are present between microbiota in animals and fermentation systems. The aim of the PhD project was to investigate factors affects microbial ecology in rodent and sourdough models. To determine how compromised health of the...
