Analysis of yeast population during spontaneous alcoholic fermentation: effect of the age of the cellar and the practice of inoculation.
An ecological study of spontaneous fermentation in red wine carried out in two wineries located in the same village of the D.O.Ca. Rioja appellation (Spain). These two wineries were very different:Expand

In Vitro Activity of the New Ketolide HMR3647 in Comparison with Those of Macrolides and Pristinamycins againstEnterococcus spp
ABSTRACT Ninety-four erythromycin-susceptible and 107 erythromycin-resistant enterococcal strains (MIC of ≥512 μg/ml) were inhibited by the ketolide HMR3647 at MICs of ≤0.007 to 0.06 and 0.03 to 8Expand
