This study evaluated the efficacy of low-energy X-ray with cut-off energy of 150 KeV to inactivate two of the most prevalent foodborne pathogens in dry edible bird's nest (EBN). The X-ray irradiation at 350 and 400 Gy decreased E. coli O157:H7 and S. Typhimurium from 6.35 ± 0.56 and 5.84 ± 0.67 log CFU/g, respectively, to undetectable level. The low-energy X-ray irradiation yielded the tR1 value of 37.6 ± 6.9 and the D10 value of 83.3 ± 7.0 Gy for E. coli O157:H7 and S. Typhimurium, respectively, which indicates that S. Typhimurium exhibited...

Publication date: Available online 11 December 2019Source: Journal of Microbiological MethodsAuthor(s): Miaomiao Hu, Dong Yang, Xiaoli Wu, Meng Luo, Feng XuAbstractTo establish a simple and rapid high-resolution melting curve (HRM) method, 5 different strains of Salmonella were identified by adding DNA denaturants at different concentrations into the HRM system to change the characteristics of DNA melting and to obtain different Tm (dissolving temperature) values of DNA from different target bacteria. When the concentration of n-butanol was 7% (v/v), the Tm value of the melting curve of the 5 strains changed from 89 °...

Authors: Abraham A, Ifeanyi SS, Muinah F, Ibidunni Oreoluwa BS, Coulibaly KJ, Adeyemi AI Abstract Infections caused by non-typhoidal Salmonella (NTS) are common around the world, with high morbidity and mortality rates recorded annually. Salmonella serovars harbor plasmids of various sizes which may play roles in antibiotic resistance and virulence. The aim of this study was to profile and determine the role of plasmids in ciprofloxacin resistance and virulence of Salmonella serovars. Using alkaline lysis method 25 NTS serovars from food animals and humans were assayed for plasmids. Isolates ability to resist healt...

Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens exist as planktonic cells only at limited times during their life cycle. In response to environmental signals such as temperature, pH, osmolality, and nutrient availability, pathogenic bacteria can adopt varied cellular fates, which involves the activation of virulence gene programs and/or the induction of a sessile lifestyle to form multicellular surface-attached communities. In Salmonella, SsrB is the response regulator which governs the lifestyle switch from an intracellular virulent state to form dormant biofilms in chronically infected hosts. Using the Salmonella lifestyle swi...

CONCLUSIONS: Australian lamb is commonly contaminated with T. gondii. Future studies should be directed at testing a range of red meats and meat cuts. Implications for public health: Consuming undercooked Australian lamb has potential to result in toxoplasmosis. There may be value in health education around this risk.

We previously isolated E. coli strains from Japanese colorectal cancer patients, and in the present study we investigated the genotoxic potency of the colibactin-producing (clb+) E. coli strains that carry the polyketide synthases "pks" gene cluste...
