Abstract Agricultural or food processing wastes cause serious environmental burden and economic losses. Solid‐state fermentation using these wastes is an attractive option to valorize these wastes. However, conventional autoclaving of substrate may degrade nutrients and generate toxins. Unsterilization of the substrate will cause undesired microbial contamination. Therefore, we compared...

Vibrio cholerae, the facultative pathogen responsible for cholera disease, continues to pose a global health burden. Its persistence can be attributed to a flexible genetic toolkit that allows for adaptation to different environments with distinct carbon sources, including the six-carbon sugar alcohol mannitol. V. cholerae takes up mannitol through the transporter protein MtlA, whose production...

Capsular polysaccharides (CPSs) are virulence factors for many important pathogens. In Escherichia coli, CPSs are synthesized via two distinct pathways, but both require proteins from the outer membrane polysaccharide export (OPX) family to complete CPS export from the periplasm to the cell surface. In this study, we compare the properties of the OPX proteins from the prototypical group 1 (Wzy-...

Abstract In the United Kingdom, there has been an increase in the number of hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections in people annually since 2010. Most of these are thought to be indigenously acquired Orthohepevirus A genotype 3 (HEV G3), which has been linked to pork production and consumption. However, the dominant subgroup circulating in British pigs differs from that which is found in people;...
