Pathogenic fungi cause significant yield losses and quality reductions to major crops including wheat, canola, and barley. Toxic metabolites produced by some phytopathogenic fungi also pose significant risks to animal and human health. Extensive application of synthetic fungicides is not a...
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...
Lactic acid bacteria produce glycans that may be applied in food and pharmaceutical industries as prebiotics, food additives, to prevent pathogen adhesion, or to modulate the host immune system. The recent identification of the structure of galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) preparations demonstrates...
