Abstract 1-Octen-3-ol is one of the most abundant volatile compounds associated with fungi and functions as a germination and growth inhibitor in several species. By investigating its effect on the biosynthesis of patulin, a mycotoxin made by Penicillium expansum, it was found that a sub-inhibitory level of volatile 1-octen-3-ol increased accumulation of patulin on a medium that...

A longitudinal study was conducted to assess to what extent intramammary infection (IMI) with non-aureus staphylococci (NAS) within the first 4 d after calving in dairy heifers affects quarter milk yield (qMY) and quarter milk somatic cell count (qSCC) during the first 4 mo of lactation. In total, 324 quarters from 82 Holstein Friesian heifers from 3 commercial dairy herds equipped with an...

The objective was to evaluate the efficacy of 2 dietary mycotoxin sequestrants, Toxy-Nil (TN) or Unike Plus (UP), in reducing aflatoxin (AF) M1 concentrations in milk of dairy cows challenged with dietary AF. Thirty-two mid-lactation Holstein cows were blocked by parity, days in milk, and milk yield and were randomly assigned within block to receive one of the following treatments: (1) 2.8 mg of...

Scope Understanding biological functions of different free human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) in shaping gastrointestinal tract microbiota during infancy is of great interest. We examined a link between HMOs in maternal milk and infant faecal microbiota composition and investigated the role of microbiota in degrading HMOs within the GI tract of healthy, breastfed, one‐month old infants. Methods...

Vibrio cholerae is the bacterial pathogen responsible for the disease cholera, plaguing many developing nations and areas of poor sanitation, and causing about 2.9 million cases and ~95 000 deaths annually. It is transmitted through contaminated water and infects the host using two major virulence factors: the toxin-coregulated pilus (TCP) and cholera toxin (CT). TCP is important for colonization...

Abstract Microbial contamination in metalworking systems is a critical problem. This study determined the microbial communities in metalworking fluids (MWFs) from two machining shops and investigated the effect of quorum sensing inhibition (QSI) on biofilm growth. In both operations, biofilm-associated and planktonic microbial communities were dominated by Pseudomonadales (60.2–...

Abstract Fresh produce are vulnerable to pathogens during pre‐ and postharvest stages. Most fresh vegetable and fruits are consumed directly or merely washed with chlorine. We investigated two emerging decontamination technologies, pulse light (PL) and ultraviolet (UV), in combination with washing (referred as water‐assisted PL [WPL] and water‐assisted UV [WUV]). Blueberries, grape tomatoes, and...

Ascofuranone (AF) and ascochlorin (AC) are meroterpenoids produced by various filamentous fungi, including Acremonium egyptiacum (synonym: Acremonium sclerotigenum), and exhibit diverse physiological activities. In particular, AF is a promising drug candidate against African trypanosomiasis and a potential anticancer lead compound. These compounds are supposedly biosynthesized through...

High‐TB Pu‐erh tea made by a novel process was compared with commercial tea samples. All teas were free of aflatoxins, fumonisins, ochratoxin A, and viable microbes. Dietary intake of investigated trace elements was below the safe limits. The new tea was comparable to conventional Pu‐erh tea in appearance and taste. Summary Theabrownins (TB) are polymeric phenolic compounds associated with...

Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a human pathogen, and it is a major cause of severe gastroenteritis in coastal areas. OmpU is one of the major outer membrane porins of V. parahaemolyticus. Host-immunomodulatory effects of V. parahaemolyticus OmpU (VpOmpU) have not been elucidated yet. In this study, in an effort towards characterizing the effect of VpOmpU on innate immune responses of the host, we...

Human Q fever is caused by the intracellular bacterial pathogen Coxiella burnetii. Q fever presents with acute flu-like and pulmonary symptoms or can progress to chronic, severe endocarditis. After human inhalation, C. burnetii is engulfed by alveolar macrophages and transits through the phagolysosomal maturation pathway, resisting the acidic pH of lysosomes to form a parasitophorous vacuole (PV...
