Isolation and characterization of fructophilic lactic acid bacteria from fructose-rich niches.
Fourteen strains of fructophilic lactic acid bacteria were isolated from fructose-rich niches, flowers, and fruits. Phylogenetic analysis and BLAST analysis of 16S rDNA sequences identified sixExpand
Reclassification of the genus Leuconostoc and proposals of Fructobacillus fructosus gen. nov., comb. nov., Fructobacillus durionis comb. nov., Fructobacillus ficulneus comb. nov. and Fructobacillus

A taxonomic study was made of the genus Leuconostoc. The species in the genus were divided into three subclusters by phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequences. The three subclustersExpand
Recommended minimal standards for description of new taxa of the genera Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus and related genera.
Minimal standards for the description of new cultivable strains that represent novel genera and species belonging to the genera Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus and related genera are proposed inExpand
Honeybees and beehives are rich sources for fructophilic lactic acid bacteria.
Fructophilic lactic acid bacteria (FLAB) are a specific group of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) characterized and described only recently. They prefer fructose as growth substrate and inhabit onlyExpand

  • 2005
Gram-positive, rod-shaped, motile lactic acid bacteria (strains NRIC 0603, NRIC 0604T, NRIC 0605 and NRIC 0606) were isolated from shochu mashes using an enrichment culture approach. These strainsExpand
Characterization of Lactococcus garvieae isolated from radish and broccoli sprouts that exhibited a KG+ phenotype, lack of virulence and absence of a capsule
Aims:  To identify Lactococcus garvieae isolates from radish and broccoli sprouts and compare them with virulent and less virulent mutant strains obtained from yellowtails with regard to KGExpand
Compositional Development of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus Microbiota Is Linked with Crying and Fussing in Early Infancy
Objectives Our aim was to establish whether there is an interconnection between the compositional development of the gut microbiota and the amount of fussing and crying in early infancy. MethodsExpand
Microbiota and probiotics in canine and feline welfare
Abstract Dogs and cats have been cohabiting with us for thousands of years. They are the major human companions. Today, dogs and cats live in urban areas. Cats and most dogs are on highExpand
Lactobacillus florum sp. nov., a fructophilic species isolated from flowers.
Three strains of fructophilic lactic acid bacteria were isolated from flowers in South Africa. The isolates formed a subcluster in the Lactobacillus buchneri phylogenetic group, closely related toExpand
Oenococcus kitaharae sp. nov., a non-acidophilic and non-malolactic-fermenting oenococcus isolated from a composting distilled shochu residue.
