A total of forty-four lactic acid bacteria (LAB) strains originally isolated from cattle feces and different food sources were screened for their potential probiotic features. The antimicrobial activity of all isolates was tested by well-diffusion assay and competitive exclusion on broth against Salmonella Montevideo, Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Listeria monocytogenes strain N1-002. Thirty-eight...

Bacterial pathogens maintain disulfide bonds for protein stability and functions that are required for pathogenesis. Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a Gram-negative pathogen that causes food-borne gastroenteritis and is also an important opportunistic pathogen of aquatic animals. Two genes encoding the disulfide bond formation protein A, DsbA, are predicted to be encoded in the V. parahaemolyticus...

The aim of this study is to investigate the antimicrobial synergistic effect against Campylobacter jejuni, a leading foodborne pathogen that causes human gastroenteritis, by cinnamon oil, encapsulated curcumin, and zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs). We compared three approaches to study the antimicrobial interactions, including the time-killing method, the fractional inhibitory concentration...

As WGS is increasingly used by food industry to characterize pathogen isolates, users are challenged by the variety of analysis approaches available, ranging from methods that require extensive bioinformatics expertise to commercial software packages. This study aimed to assess the impact of analysis pipelines (i.e., different hqSNP pipelines, a cg/wgMLST pipeline) and the reference genome...

Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a common pathogen which has become a major concern of seafood products. The bacteria in the viable but nonculturable (VBNC) state are unable to form colonies on growth media, but under appropriate conditions they can regain culturability. In this study, V. parahaemolyticus was induced into VBNC state at low temperature and oligotrophic condition, and was resuscitated to...

Listeria monocytogenes is an important foodborne pathogen with a significant impact on public health worldwide. A great number ofMany outbreaks caused by L. monocytogenes hasve been reported, especially in the United States and European countries. However, listeriosis has isuncommonnot yet been included ina notifiable disease in China, and thus information on this infection has been scarce among...

Salmonella is a major foodborne pathogen which causes widespread contamination and infection worldwide. Salmonella Typhimurium is one of the leading serovars responsible for human and animal salmonellosis, globally. The increasing rate of antibiotic resistance in Salmonella Typhimurium poses a significant global concern, and an improved understanding of the distribution of antibiotic resistance...

Listeria monocytogenes is a globally notoriousfoodborne pathogen. This study aimed to qualitatively and quantitatively detect L. monocytogenes from meat and meat products in China and to establish their virulence profiles and population diversity. From 1212 meat and meat product samples, 362 (29.9%) were positive for L. monocytogenes. Serogroup analysis showed that the most prevalent serogroup of...

Salmonella enterica serovar 4,[5],12:i:- (S. 4,[5],12:i:-) is an emerging foodborne pathogen causing salmonellosis in humans and animals. Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) is an effective strategy for controlling enteric infections through maintaining gut microbiota homeostasis and regulating the intestinal innate immune response. Here, LGG was orally administrated to newly weaned...
