MoraruAbstractThe main goal of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a combination of antimicrobial films and Pulsed Light (PL) on inactivation of Listeria innocua on Cheddar cheese surface, and maintaining of product quality during refrigerated storage. The mechanical and antimicrobial properties of starch films (ASF) containing sodium benzoate (ASF-SB) and citric acid (ASF-CA), prepared by casting and irradiated with PL, were evaluated. These films were used as packaging for Cheddar cheese slices t...

The foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes survives exposure to a variety of stresses including desiccation in the food industry. Strand-specific RNA sequencing was applied to analyze changes in the transcriptomes of two strains of L. monocytogenes (Lm 568 and Lm 08-5578) during desiccation [15°C, 43% relative humidity (RH)] on food grade stainless steel surfaces over 48 h to simulate a weekend with no food production. Both strains showed similar survival during desiccation with a 1.8–2 Log CFU/cm2 reduction after 48 h. Analysis of differentially expressed (DE) genes (>twofold, adjusted p-value

In conclusion, the inactivation rate (i.e., kmax) of L. monocytogenes was affected by a complex relation between food matrix fat content, thermal conductivity, rheological properties, and inactivation temperature. Due to the small scale of the model systems, differences in kmax did not directly affect the final log reductions in a similar fashion.

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as key regulators of gene expression in several biological systems. The long intergenic RNA-erythroid pro-survival (lincRNA-EPS) has been shown to play a critical role in restraining inflammatory gene expression. However, the function of lincRNA-EPS during bacterial infections remains unknown. Here, we demonstrate that following infection with the intracellular bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, both mouse macrophages and dendritic cells lacking lincRNA-EPS exhibit an enhanced expression of proinflammatory cytokine genes, as well as an increased expression of the inducible nitric ...

Listeria monocytogenes is a foodborne bacterium that causes gastroenteritis, meningitis, or abortion. Listeria induces its internalization (entry) into some human cells through interaction of the bacterial surface protein InlB with its host receptor, the Met tyrosine kinase. InlB and Met promote entry through stimulation of localized actin polymerization and exocytosis. How actin cytoskeletal changes and exocytosis are controlled during entry is not well understood. Here, we demonstrate important roles for the host GTPase Arf1 and its effectors AP1 and PICK1 in actin polymerization and exocytosis during InlB-dependent upta...

Isoprenoids are an essential and diverse class of molecules, present in all forms of life, that are synthesized from an essential common precursor derived from either the mevalonate pathway or the nonmevalonate pathway. Most bacteria have one pathway or the other, but the Gram-positive, facultative intracellular pathogen Listeria monocytogenes is unusual because it carries all the genes for both pathways. While the mevalonate pathway has previously been reported to be essential, here we demonstrate that the nonmevalonate pathway can support growth of strains 10403S and EGD-e, but only anaerobically. L. monocytogenes lackin...

Dave OomahAbstractCranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) fruits are known for their high polyphenolics content making them a rich source of antioxidants. These polyphenolics have been reported to promote human health and are gaining attention for their antimicrobial activities against foodborne pathogens. We investigated the antimicrobial activity of an ethanolic extract #(FC111-1) prepared from cranberry pomace against Listeria spp. Many polyphenolics were identified ...
