Publication date: 1 October 2019 , Volume 294Author(s): Hongwei Zheng, Feng Han, Hong Lin, Limin Cao, Tushar Ramesh Pavase, Jianxin SuiAbstractDetection of pathogenic bacteria by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is progressively emerging, although it is still hindered by a complex matrix, long-term bacterial enrichment and low bacterial abundance. Here, we report a novel material based on boronate...

Tyramine is a naturally occurring monoamine compound produced from decarboxylation of the amino acid tyrosine by monoamine oxidase. Foodstuffs containing considerable amounts of tyramine include fish, fermented food, and other dairy products. High levels of tyramine in food samples cause toxic effects such as migraine, tachycardia, and vomiting. Therefore, sensitive methods are...

Solid-phase extraction (SPE) was combined with dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction based on solidification of floating organic droplet (DLLME-SFO) as a pretreatment technique for the simultaneous analysis of 11 organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) and 5 polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in fish tissue. Gas chromatography with electron capture detector was used for the...

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...

Vincenzo Motta, Diana Luise, Paolo Bosi, Paolo Trevisi The host-microbiota interplay is recognized as a key factor for the homeostatic maintenance in animals. In pigs, the weaning transition represents a drastic changes event leading to high risk of gut dysbiosis, which in most cases results in economic losses for swine industry. The blood type antigens expressed on mucosal surfaces can act as...

Luke A. Schwerdtfeger, Nora Jean Nealon, Elizabeth P. Ryan, Stuart A. Tobet Background Human intestines contain a heterogeneous collection of cells that include immune, neural and epithelial elements interacting in a highly complex physiology that is challenging to maintain ex vivo. There is an extreme oxygen gradient across the intestinal wall due in part to microbiota in the lumen and close to...

Mahewu is a fermented cereal beverage produced in Zimbabwe. This study determined the composition and origin of mahewu microbiota. The microbiota of mahewu samples consisted of 3 to 7 dominant strains of lactobacilli and two strains of yeasts. Enterobacteriaceae were not detected. Candida glabrata was present in high cell counts from samples collected in summer but not from samples collected in...

Little is known about the abiotic factors contributing to the preharvest persistence of Salmonella in tomato tissues. Therefore, we investigated the effects of specific environmental conditions and contamination methods on the persistence and dissemination of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serotype Typhimurium (JSG626) in tomato plants. When plants were sprayed on the leaves with a JSG626-...

Microcin PDI (MccPDI), a class IIa microcin that is produced by Escherichia coli strains 25 and 284, is known to inhibit foodborne pathogenic enterohemorrhagic E. coli serotypes O157:H7 and O26. Here we demonstrate that MccPDI can inhibit Shigella strains and E. coli isolates that are multidrug resistant, the latter including strains known to cause urinary tract infections in people and companion...

Contamination of fresh produce with pathogenic Escherichia coli, including Shiga-toxigenic E. coli (STEC), represents a serious risk to human health. Colonization is governed by multiple bacterial and plant factors that can impact the probability and suitability of bacterial growth. Thus, we aimed to determine whether the growth potential of STEC for plants associated with foodborne outbreaks (...

Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) strains that produce immunologically heterogeneous fimbriae and enterotoxins are the primary cause of neonatal diarrhea and postweaning diarrhea in young pigs. A multivalent vaccine inducing protective immunity against ideally all ETEC fimbriae and enterotoxins could be effective against diarrhea in young pigs. However, developing a vaccine to broadly...

Campylobacter is a major foodborne pathogen in humans and a significant cause of abortion in sheep. Although ruminants are increasingly recognized as important reservoirs for Campylobacter species, limited information is available about the molecular epidemiology and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) profiles of sheep Campylobacter. Here, we describe a two-trial study that examined Campylobacter...
