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.

    • To adapt to changing and potentially hostile environments, bacteria can activate the transcription of genes under the control of alternative sigma factors, such as SigB, a master regulator of the general stress response in several Gram-positive species. Bacillus thuringiensis is a Gram-positive spore-forming invertebrate pathogen whose lifecycle includes a variety of environments, including plants, insect hemocoel or gut. Here we assessed the role of SigB during the infectious cycle of B.
