Abstract Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157:H7 and extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) producing E. coli (ESBLEC) are important bacteria of public health concern and frequently isolated from raw beef products. Bacteriophage-based methods have been increasingly exploited to control bacterial contamination in meats. Here, we describe the isolation,...

Abstract The antifungal activity of acetophenone and phenylethyl alcohol prevents seed contamination by Aspergillus flavus TISTR 3041 and A. parasiticus TISTR 3276. Their effects on seed germination were investigated. In vitro results showed that 100 µL L−1 acetophenone completely inhibited (by 100%) growth, conidial germination, and sporulation of the two aflatoxin-producing...

Abstract The objective of this study was to determine if oranges in the top and bottom layers within a Standard Place Pack were impacted differently by irradiation after long-term storage. ‘Barnfield’ Navel oranges were packed in Standard Place Pack cartons and treated with 0, 0.15, or 1 kGy of gamma irradiation. The fruit were stored for 3 weeks at 5 °C and then for 1 week at...

The presence of foodborne pathogens is one of the leading causes of food safety incidents; hence, early monitoring of the status of microbial contamination is a permanent concern. Here, a rapid and sensitive method for detection of Salmonella typhimurium was firstly developed by combining heavy water (D2O) labeling and Raman microspectroscopy to measure bacterial metabolic...

Phthalic acid esters (PAEs) have become an important food safety concern due to their lipophilic properties and propensity to accumulate in adipose tissue in edible fish. In this study, a simple, sensitive, and accurate analytical method was successfully established for simultaneous determination of 19 PAEs in fish samples using gas chromatography coupled with tandem mass...

New fast and efficient analytical method based on QuEChERS followed by dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) was developed for extraction and pre-concentration of residues of ethion and bifenthrin insecticide/acaricides in palm date matrix. GC-MS was used for quantification of the pesticides. The developed method was validated according to the European regulations...

New multiresidue methods for identification and quantification of over 131 pesticides in wine and grapes have been developed. The analyses were based on gas chromatography with microelectron capture and nitrogen–phosphorus detection (GC-μECD/NPD). Two different extraction protocols (QuEChERS-citrate buffer and unbuffered methods) for wine samples were described. A full...

An extraction method for simultaneous determination of aflatoxins (AFLAs) G2, G1, B2, and B1 in cornmeal, based on vortex-assisted matrix solid-phase dispersion (MSPD) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with fluorescence detection was optimized by a central composite design, validated and applied. Multivariate analysis was performed to evaluate the effect of...

Abstract The botanical origin of honey is subjected to severe controls by Food Control Institutions, both for health protection and for frauds prevention. The complexity of honey makes it very difficult to verify the botanical origin. Among the available validated methods, sensory analysis and melissopalynology are the most widely employed. These methods require a long time...

Kizuku Watanabe, Jiro Kato, Jianfeng Zhu, Hirotake Oda, Hiroko Ishiwata-Endo, Joel Moss Cholera toxin, an 84-kDa multimeric protein and a major virulence factor of Vibrio cholerae, uses the ADP-ribosyltransferase activity of its A subunit to intoxicate host cells. ADP-ribosylation is a posttranslational modification of proteins, in which the ADP-ribose moiety of NAD+ is transferred to an...

In this study, we sampled rhizosphere soils from seven different agricultural fields adjacent to mining areas and cultivated with different crops (corn, rice, or soybean), to study the interactions among the innate microbiota, soil chemical properties, plants, and metal contamination. The rhizosphere bacterial communities were characterized by Illumina sequencing of the 16S rRNA genes, and their...

Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs), the most poisonous proteins known to humankind, are a family of seven (serotype A to G) immunologically distinct proteins synthesized primarily by different strains of the anaerobic bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Being the causative agents of botulism, the toxins block neurotransmitter release by specifically cleaving one of the three soluble N-ethylmaleimide-...

Soils in household environments in low- and middle-income countries may play an important role in the persistence, proliferation, and transmission of Escherichia coli. Our goal was to investigate the risk factors for detection, survival, and growth of E. coli in soils collected from household plots. E. coli was enumerated in soil and fecal samples from humans, chickens, and cattle from 52...

In nature and man-made environments, microorganisms reside in mixed-species biofilms, in which the growth and metabolism of an organism are different from these behaviors in single-species biofilms. Pathogenic microorganisms may be protected against adverse treatments in mixed-species biofilms, leading to health risk for humans. Here, we developed two mixed five-species biofilms that included one...

ABSTRACTThis study was conducted to investigate the presence of plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance (PMQR) genes in β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli isolates from layer hens and to characterize their molecular background. Among 142 E. coli isolates, 86 (60.6%) showed multidrug resistance and 15 (10.6%) were found to be β-lactamase-producing E. coli. Extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)...
