Novel sRNA and regulatory genes repressing the adhesion of Salmonella enteritidis exposed to meat-related environment

Publication date: April 2020Source: Food Control, Volume 110Author(s): Haijing Hu, Kun Jia, Huhu Wang, Xinglian Xu, Guanghong Zhou, Shuwen HeAbstractSalmonella is the leading cause of infectious disease outbreaks associated with meat products, residual meat particles on food-contact surfaces can influence the biofilm formation of microorganisms. The transcriptional landscape and expression of novel small non-coding RNAs (sRNAs) were investigated during the biofilm formation of S. Enteritidis exposed to meat thawing loss broth (MTLB) in this study. The genes of csgB, adrA and fimH were differentially expressed. Notably, a total of nineteen candidate sRNAs predicted to be involved in the regulation of biofilm formation were discovered in S. Enteritidis. Four specific deletion mutants were successfully established, and further investigation indicated that these mutants improved their functions in swimming, swarming, and auto-aggregation, as well as their surface hydrophobicity. Moreover, these novel sRNAs repressed adhesion and biofilm formation of S. Enteritidis on stainless steel and polystyrene surfaces. These findings are beneficial for illustrating the complex regulatory networks of biofilm formation of Salmonella.

The objective of this study was to study the inactivation kinetics of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Salmonella Typhimurium under microwave pasteurization at temperatures between 80 and 90 °C, i.e., at conditions that are employed in conventional pasteurization. Inoculated juices were treated at different power levels (600 W, 720 W) and treatment times (5s, 10s, 15s, 20s, 25s). Time-temperature profiles were obtained by fiber-optic sensors in contact with the samples allowing continuous data collection. The log-logistic and Arrhenius equations were used to account for the influence of the temperature histo...

Identification of the most prevalent serovars, common polluted food types and attention to the antibiotic resistance of its serovars, are therefore key factors in the prevention and control of salmonellosis. The aim of this study is thus isolation of t...

Thomas, Govindarajan Bhuvana Priya, Samir Das, Ingudam Shakuntala, Rajkumari Sanjukta, Kekungu-u Puro, Arnab SenAbstractThe polymerase spiral reaction (PSR), a novel isothermal method for targeted DNA amplification, was effectively applied to detect Salmonella in artificially spiked pork. The specificity of the developed PSR was tested using 16 Salmonella and 15 non-Salmonella strains. The PSR assay was 10-fold more sensitive than conventional end-poin...

In this study, 8 Salmonella phages and 10 E. coli O157:H7 phages were isolated from chicken products. A polyvalent phage PS5 capable of infecting S. Enteritidis, S. Typhimurium, and E. coli O157:H7 was further characterized and its efficacy in reducing these foodborne pathogens was evaluated in in vitro and in foods. Morphology, one-step growth, and stability assay showed that phage PS5 was a myovirus, with relatively short latent periods, large burst sizes, and high stability. Genome sequencing analysis revealed that the genome of PS5 does not contain any genes associated to antibiotic resistance, toxins, lysogeny, and vi...

In this study, we set out to compare which of the currently available open-source command-line tools is most suitable to replace serological testing. A thorough evaluation of the differing computational approaches is highly important to ensure the backward compatibility of serotyping data and to maintain the comparability between laboratories.

In this study, water samples were collected weekly from irrigation ponds and wells in four representative vegetable farms (Farms A–D, each farm paired with one pond and one well) and a creek as well. In addition, water samples from two sites in the Chesapeake Bay on the ESV were collected monthly. Poultry litter was sampled monthly from three commercial broiler farms. Soil samples were collected monthly after fertilization with poultry litter from 10 farms in 2014 and another 14 farms in 2015. A most probable number method was used to detect Salmonella enterica presence and concentration in collected samples. Presump...
