In this study, we evaluated the antimicrobial effects of different levels of a potassium lactate (PL) plus sodium diacetate (SDA) mixture against the growth and survival of Listeria monocytogenes Scott A inoculated onto smoked salmon stored at 4, 10, and -20 degrees C. The effect of freezing stress on the growth kinetics of L. monocytogenes Scott A on(More)
The objective of this study was to model the kinetics of the survival of Campylobacter jejuni on cooked chicken breast patties and in broth as a function of temperature. Both patties and broth were inoculated with 10(6) stationary-phase cells of a single strain of C. jejuni (ATCC 43051) and incubated at constant temperatures from 4 to 30 degrees C in 2(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the effects of pH on the growth kinetics of Listeria monocytogenes Scott A in static and agitated broths stored at 4 and 10 degrees C with and without a combination of 1.85% potassium lactate (PL) and 0.13% sodium diacetate (SDA) (3.3% of a 60% commercial solution, PURASAL P Opti. Form 4). The pH of brain heart(More)
Choose a random polynomial f uniformly from among the q d (q − 1) polynomials of degree d in F q [x]. Let c k be the number of cycles of length k in the directed graph on F q with edges {(v, f (v))} v∈Fq. If d = d(q) → ∞ as q → ∞, then the numbers c 1 , c 2 ,. .. , c b are asymptotically independent Poisson(1/k), just as in the classical theory of random(More)
