Prevalence of pathogenic Escherichia coli from salad vegetable and fruits sold in Jakarta

Escherichia coli is a normal inhabitant of mammalian ’s gut, but some strains acquired virulence factor and became pathogenic. Enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC), enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC), enteropathogenic E. ...

Abstract Fresh vegetables are important components of an everyday balanced diet making ready to-eat-salads (RTE) a commodity widely consumed. However, in the past few years these products have been linked with outbreaks of salmonellosis and listeriosis; thus the continuous investigation of their safety is an essential requirement. A total of 216 samples of ready-to-eat salads from the Cypriot market were analysed to determine the microbiological quality and safety, along with physicochemical attributes of the salads and identify possible correlations between them. The samples were randomly collected from four reta...

I, Rovira J Abstract The fastidious requirement of the zoonotic pathogen Campylobacter jejuni contrasts with its ability to overcome harsh conditions. Different strategies might be involved in the survival and persistence of C. jejuni through the poultry food chain. Therefore, the aims of this study were to get insights in the survival strategies in the poultry slaughterhouse environment by (i) characterizing factors such as biofilm formation, virulence and antimicrobial resistance in environmental isolates and (ii) understanding the possible link between the phenotypic and genetic characterization using whole gen...

This study investigated the effect of processing water and processing time on the microbial diversity of yellow-feathered broiler carcasses at select stages of slaughter during one commercial processing day using a high-throughput sequencing technique targeting the V3V4 region of the 16S RNA gene. Our results demonstrated that Firmicutes and Proteobacteria were the dominant bacterial phyla of broiler carcasses and processing water in the chiller tank, whereas the processing water in the scalder tank contained a high abundance of Firmicutes and Deinococcus-Thermus. At the genus level, Escherichia-Shigella and Streptococcus ...

AbstractA novel adsorbent for antibiofouling and highly selective uranium recovery from seawater is developed in this work. Specifically, the polypropylene nonwoven fabric modified with oxime and guanidine was obtained by subsequent radiation-grafting, ring-opening and oximation reaction. The adsorbent demonstrates outstanding selectivity for uranium(VI) against other competing metal ions in real seawater. The antibacterial assay indicated the adsorbent has good antibacterial properties againstEscherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. XPS spectra indicate that uranium(VI) is adsorbed on the non-woven through the interact...

In this study, we screened and evaluated all aptamers that we targeted to Salmonella Enteritidis (S. Enteritidis). After 13 rounds of selection we obtained 77,296 unique sequences from a total of 3,225,931 sequences using Next Generation Sequencing. We identified two high affinity aptamers that possessed dissociation constants of 43.8 and 56.2 nM. In addition, these two aptamers showed low binding activity to other foodborne bacterial isolates including Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli. Furthermore, by incorporation of AuNP-based colorimetric aptasensor, both aptamers showed alterations in...
