Research Publications (Food Safety)

The Food Safety Publications tracks research that is published across national and international peer-reviewed journals. Recent articles are available ahead of print and searchable by Journal, Article Title, and Category. The research publications are tracked across six categories: Bacterial Pathogens, Chemical Contaminants, Natural Toxins, Parasites, Produce Safety, and Viruses. Articles produced by USDA Grant Funding Agencies and FDA Grant Funding Agencies are also tracked.

  1. The involvement of organic acids in soil fertility, plant health and environment sustainability

    • Tue, 11/22/2022 - 04:00
    • Archives of Microbiology
    • Increasing demand for safe food by an ever-growing human population emphasizes the urgency for increasing crop yields and reducing the losses caused by abiotic and biotic stresses; a partial solution to this problem is to develop a better understanding of plant–microbe interactions. Plant roots continuously release a wide range of compounds including organic acids in root exudates.

  3. Ecological performance of multifunctional pesticide tolerant strains of Mesorhizobium sp. in chickpea with recommended pendimethalin, ready-mix of pendimethalin and imazethpyr, carbendazim and chlorpyrifos application

    • Wed, 01/12/2022 - 22:17
    • Archives of Microbiology
    • The present study was designed to screen the Mesorhizobium strains (50) for tolerance with four recommended pesticides in chickpea. In-vitro, robust pesticide tolerant strains were developed in pesticides amended media over several generations. Further, verification of the multifunctional traits of pesticide tolerant mesorhizobia under pesticide stress was conducted in-vitro.

  4. Antibacterial Mechanism of Liangguoan against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli

    • Thu, 05/27/2021 - 02:01
    • Archives of Microbiology
    • This study examined the antibacterial activity of the biological pesticide Liangguoan against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli as a potential replacement for chemical pesticide use in the fruit and vegetable industry. We measured the minimum inhibitory concentration and observed the changes in bacterial morphology, mortality, conductivity, nucleic acid content, and ATP content in response to the bactericide.

  6. Potential applications of extracellular enzymes from Streptomyces spp. in various industries

    • Tue, 05/26/2020 - 03:52
    • Archives of Microbiology
    • Extracellular enzymes produced from Streptomyces have the potential to replace toxic chemicals that are being used in various industries. The endorsement of this replacement has not received a better platform in developing countries. In this review, we have discussed the impact of chemicals and conventional practices on environmental health, and the role of extracellular enzymes to replace these practices.

  7. Whole genome sequence analysis of the mosquitocidal Bacillus thuringiensis LLP29

    • Thu, 04/16/2020 - 03:28
    • Archives of Microbiology
    • Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is efficient, strongly specific, and avirulent to humans, making it one of the most popular biopesticides in the world. Bt LLP29 is a mosquitocidal strain that was first isolated from Magnolia denudata. To understand its molecular mechanism against mosquitoes, the genome of Bt LLP29 was sequenced and annotated in this study.
