This study was aimed at evaluating the effect of pullulan coating incorporated with cinnamon essential oil (CEO) nanoemulsion on the shelf life and senescence of fresh strawberries during room storage. Pullulan-CEO nanoemulsion prepared using ultrasound treatment had smaller particle size (162.1 nm) and more uniform distribution of oil droplets. After six days of storage, pullulan-CEO nanoemulsion coating remarkably lowered the loss in fruit mass, firmness, total soluble solids and titratable acidity of strawberries. In addition, pullulan-based nanoemulsion coated strawberries showed the strongest antimicrobial activity ...

This study investigated the association between the home food environment and the consumption frequency of raw and cooked vegetables, berries and fruit among 3–5-year-old children and their mothers and fathers. The target group consisted of 3–5-year-old children (N=114) attending public early childhood education and care, and their parents (N=100). Cross-sectional data were collected from the parents with questionnaires assessing the home food environment, children and parents’ vegetable, berry and fruit consumption, and food neophobia. Linear mixed-effects models and principal component analysis were use...

BurrowsAbstractIn human research, images of food are often used as cues in place of real foods. To elicit anticipatory responses in targeted populations (e.g. prompting changes in metabolic hormones, invoking food cravings), cultural differences and population norms with regard to food preferences need to be considered. This pilot study aimed to construct two image paradigms (healthy vs. hyperpalatable foods) for experimental use within the Australian population...

French, Clayton Hilton, Maria D. Esteve-GasentAbstractDetermining which wildlife hosts are involved in the enzootic cycles of tick-borne diseases (TBD) enables enhanced surveillance and risk assessment of potential transmission to humans and domestic species. Currently, there is limited data to indicate which tick-borne pathogens (TBP) can infect coyotes. Additionally, limited surveillance data for white-tailed deer (WTD) in south Texas i...

In this study, we established a continuous epithelial cell line, named PT cell, from the pig tonsil. This cell is susceptible to JEV. We determined the growth characteristics, molecular properties, microstructure profiles of PT cell. JEV is easy to enter PT cell which may partly explain the reason of persist infection. We further determined that LMAN2L, a mannose lectin proteins, is the primary viral receptors for JEV entry in PT cell. IFITM3, an cellular surface antiviral factor, is underexpression in PT cell after JEV infection. All these results provide solid evidence that PT cell will promote additional research on JEV...

However, the existing synthetic methods for L-PHG mainly rely on toxic cyanide chemistry and multistep processes. To provide green, safe and high enantioselective alternatives, we envisaged cascade biocatalysis for the one-pot synthesis of L-PH...

This report describes an abortion case in a Chianina cow due to Aspergillus nidulans, Aspergillus luchuensis and Lichtheimia sp. diagnosed by histology, cytology, culture and molecular assays. A mixed infection due to more than one fungus in abortion is rarely demonstrated. To our knowledge, this is the first case of bovine abortion caused by co-infection with three different moulds.

Nikolova, Kishor Kumar Sadasivuni, Hakimeh Mahdizadeh, Urvashi VermaAbstractNickel Oxide (NiO) nano-sized sample was bio-synthesized by a microwave-assisted route consuming citrus variety fruit juice. The prepared NiO sample was investigated by various spectroscopy techniques. The X-ray diffractogram revealed the formation of a cubic spinel with a well crystalline nature of NiO nanoparticles with a very fine crystallite size of 20 nm. FTIR revealed Ni-O and smaller C-H and H-O-H charact...
