Inhibitory capacity of Lactobacillus spp. against pathogens involved in foodborne diseases.

[Inhibitory capacity of Lactobacillus spp. against pathogens involved in foodborne diseases]. Rev Argent Microbiol. 2017 Mar 23;: Authors: Ruiz MJ, Colello R, Padola NL, Etcheverría AI Abstract The genus Lactobacillus daily generates a growing interest among microbiologists and technologists, who try to discover new biotechnological applications and probiotic properties. The main goal of this study was to evaluate the inhibitory capacity of Lactobacillus spp. against pathogens (Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella spp., Staphylococcus aureus) involved in foodborne diseases. For this purpose, samples were collected at different stages of the pork production chain. Seventy eight bacterial strains were isolated. Twenty seven (27) of these strains (37.18%) had genotypic and phenotypic characteristics corresponding to Lactobacillus spp. whereas 85.18% of them showed inhibitory capacity. These data showed that the studied strains represent a potential alternative to inactivate foodborne pathogens and thus provide safe food to consumers.

Abstract Natural extracts containing high polyphenolic concentration possess antibacterial, anti-parasitic and fungicidal activities. The present research characterises two extracts based on white grape marc, a winemaking by-product, describing their physicochemical features and antimicrobial capacities. The main components of these extracts are phenolic acids, flavan-3-ols and their gallates and flavonols and their glycosides. As a result of this complex composition, the extracts showed pronounced bioactivities with potential uses in agricultural, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Polyphenol compounds were ...

In this study, we established a whole-cell method for the identification of foodborne pathogenic bacteria, using MALDI-TOF MS and principal component analysis (PCA), which did not use protein extractions or expensive protein databases. Thirty strains comprising six common foodborne pathogenic bacteria, namely, Shigella flexneri, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enteritidis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Listeria monocytogenes were analyzed using MALDI-TOF MS. The culture time, matrix, and spotting method were optimized based on peak intensity and deviation. A PCA was performed to analyze the mass spectrome...

Abstract Developing effective and eco-friendly antimicrobials and pesticides has become a highly important issue. The repellent, insecticidal and antimicrobial activity of essential oils (EOs) isolated by hydrodistillation from dried leaves of the three Eucalyptus species ( E. cloeziana, E . umbellata and E. benthamii ) were investigated. During GC-MS analysis, α-pinene (47.36%), 1,8-cineol (38.53%) and α-pinene (35.31%) were identified as major components of E. cloeziana, E . umbellata and E. benthamii , respectively. The EOs from E. cloeziana exhibited the longest effective protection time (465 min, ...

Abstract Streptococcus mutans is a common principal causative agent of dental caries. In this communication, we describe that the antibodies raised against purified dextransucrase effectively inhibited the growth of S. mutans. The purified enzyme showed 58-fold enrichment, 17.5% yield and a specific activity of 3.96 units/mg protein. Purified IgG fraction of the antibody showed significant affinity with the antigenic protein. Immunotritation of the enzyme with dextransucrase antibody showed a gradual increase in inhibition of dextransucrase activity. The growth of S. mutans was also inhibited by 85% in the pr...
