The detection of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and their metabolites in food and in agricultural sources is an important research objective due to the PAHs’ known persistence, carcinogenicity, and toxicity. PAHs have been found in the milk of lactating cows and in the leaves and stems of plants grown in PAH-contaminated areas, thereby making their way into both cow...

Dry-cured meat products are frequently colonised by toxigenic Penicillium nordicum and Penicillium verrucosum throughout their ripening that can produce ochratoxin A (OTA). The predictive nature of the molecular analyses can be used to determine the risk of toxigenic species. For this reason, the objective of the present work was to analyse the temporal changes in the...

A method was developed for the analysis of four polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons regulated in the European Union, namely, benzo[a]anthracene, chrysene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, and benzo[a]pyrene in edible oils. Multi-walled carbon nanotubes were applied for dispersive solid-phase extraction of analytes from the oils after dilution with n-hexane followed by elution of analytes...

Tyramine signal amplification (TSA), the excellent signal amplification strategy, has the potential to improve the sensitivities of analytes analysis. In this work, the sensitivity of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) has significantly improved by coupling TSA system and further biotin-streptavidin (BSA) system. Thus, a sensitive TSA-ELISA based on TSA was developed...

Dustin J. Little, Brian K. Coombes Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) use a needle-like injection apparatus known as the type III secretion system (T3SS) to deliver protein effectors into host cells. Effector translocation is highly stratified in EPEC with the translocated intimin receptor (Tir) being the first effector delivered into the host. CesT is a multi-cargo chaperone that is...

The impact of neutral electrolyzed oxidizing (NEO) water treatments on the formation of sublethally injured Yersinia enterocolitica, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis cells was evaluated. When pathogens were treated with 6% NEO water, approximately 38% of the treated Yersinia population and 25% of the treated Salmonella population became sublethally injured....
