However, the data available on the sensitivity of food spoilage fungi to sanitizers are very limited. Thus, the aim of this work was to evaluate the antifungal efficacy of commercial sanit...

Hernández-Herrero, R. Gervilla, A.X. Roig-Sagués Lethality rates of Bacillus subtilis, Geobacillus stearothermophilus, Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris, and Aspergillus niger spores were studied into phosphate-buffer saline (PBS) and PBS supplemented with caramel (PBSC) after Ultra-High Pressure Homogenization (UHPH) and UV-C treatments applied separately and combined. UHPH procedures were carried out at differen...

Authors: Ferdouse J, Miyagawa M, Hirano M, Kitajima Y, Inaba S, Kitagaki H Abstract At present, the quantitation of the mycelial weight of the industrially important non-pathogenic fungus Aspergillus oryzae, which is used for manufacturing koji, is performed by quantitating N-acetylglucosamine. However, since N-acetylglucosamine is a cell wall component, the extraction procedure is costly and tedious, and its quantitative performance is poor. Here, we report a novel method for the quantitation of A. oryzae mycelial weight. The amount of glycosylceramide significantly correlated with both the mycelial weight of A. o...

Conclusion: A strong clinical suspicion that translates into early vitrectomy plus intravitreal antifungal antibiotics leads to favorable visual and structural outcomes. A long wait till microbiological confirmation to institute antifungal therapy may result in poorer outcome.

Publication date: 1 December 2018 Source:Food Chemistry, Volume 268 Author(s): Qingyi Wei, Xiaomei Wang, Jun-Hu Cheng, Guangxiang Zeng, Da-Wen Sun A series of sorbic and benzoic acid amide derivatives were synthesized by conjugating sorbic acid (SAAD, a1 –a7 ) or benzoic acid (BAAD b1 – b6 ) with amino acid esters and their antimicrobial activities were investigated against Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus, mixed bacteria from rancid milk, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and Aspergillus niger. The antimicrobial activity of sorbic acid amides was better than that of benzoic acid amides. T...

Chitin is a polysaccharide that provides structure and rigidity to the cell walls of fungi and insects. Mammals possess multiple chitinases, which function to degrade chitin, thereby supporting a role for chitinases in immune defense. However, chitin degradation has been implicated in the pathogenesis of asthma. Here, we determined the impact of acidic mammalian chitinase (AMCase) (Chia) deficiency on host defense during acute exposure to the fungal pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus as well as its contribution to A. fumigatus-associated allergic asthma. We demonstrate that chitin in the fungal cell wall was detected at low le...

Publication date: October 2018 Source:Phytochemistry Letters, Volume 27 Author(s): Madira Coutlyne Manganyi, Thierry Regnier, Ajay Kumar, Carlos Cornelius Bezuidenhout, Collins Njie Ateba Throughout history, mankind has used plants as their primary source of sustainability, in agricultural commodities, clothing, fragrances, fertilizers, flavours, and providing shelter. There is a strong symbiotic relationship between the plant and its endophytes. Endophytes are harboured within the living plant tissues without causing neither diseases nor symptoms. They produce bioactive compounds that protect the host plants against atta...
