This study was carried out to evaluate the microbiological quality and lipid oxidation of fresh salmon slices treated by dipping in 2.5% (w/v) aqueous solution of sodium acetate (NaA), sodium lactate (NaL), or sodium citrate (NaC) and stored at 1 degrees C. The results revealed that these salts were efficient (P < 0.05) against the proliferation of various(More)
This study was carried out to evaluate the shelf life, chemical quality and sensory attributes of salmon slices treated by dipping in 2.5% aqueous solution of sodium acetate (NaA), sodium lactate (NaL), or sodium citrate (NaC) during refrigerated storage at 1 degrees C. The chemical analyses demonstrated significant reduction in K value, hypoxanthine (Hx)(More)
Recent studies on the metabolic activities of genus Rhodococcus have shown rhodococci to be of important use in industrial, pharmaceutical and environmental biotechnology. The increasing economic significance of Rhodococcus encourages renewed efforts to characterize their genetic systems, as Rhodococcus genetics are still poorly understood. The goal of this(More)
This study provides novel information regarding the existence and precise cellular localization of various monocarboxylate transporters (MCTs) in the mammalian adrenal gland. RT-PCR results revealed that 10 MCT isoforms, namely MCT1, MCT2, MCT3, MCT4, MCT5, MCT8, MCT9, MCT10, MCT13, and MCT14 are expressed in the bovine adrenal gland. MCTs (MCT1-MCT8)(More)
We designed a new vector system for creating a random mutant library with multiple integrations of DNA fragments into the Rhodococcus genome in a single step. For this, we cotransformed two vectors into Rhodococcus by electroporation: pTip-istAB-sacB regulates the expression of the transposase (IstA) and its helper protein (IstB) under the influence of a(More)
Fourteen members of the monocarboxylate transporter (MCT, SLC16) family have been identified, each having a different tissue distribution and substrate specificity. The expression of monocarboxylate transporters MCT1 and MCT4 have been studied in the gastrointestinal tract of ruminants; however, details of the expression of other MCT isoforms in the various(More)
Sorbitol-fermenting (SF) Escherichia coli O157:H- strains have emerged as important pathogens and have been associated with a higher incidence of progression to hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) than non-sorbitol fermenting (NSF) E. coli O157:H7. The present study was carried out to determine the prevalence of SF E. coli O157:H- and NSF E. coli O157:H7(More)
The emergence of livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in food-producing animals is of increasing interest, raising questions about the presence of MRSA in food of animal origin and potential sources of transmission to humans via the food chain. In this study, the prevalence, molecular characterization, virulence factors,(More)
Effects of trisodium phosphate (TSP) and/or sodium chloride (NaCl) dipping on microbial quality and shelf life of chicken breasts were investigated during refrigeration. Chicken breasts were dipped in aqueous solution (w/v) of 10% TSP, 10% NaCl, combination of TSP and NaCl (7.5% + 7.5%) or distilled water (control) for 10 min, followed by tray-packaging(More)
The novel plasmid vector (pTAOR4-Rev) suitable for gene expression in actinomycete strains of Pseudonocardia autotrophica was constructed from 2 P. autotrophica genetic elements, the novel replication origin and the acetone-inducible promoter. The replication origin was isolated from the endogenous plasmid of strain DSM 43082 and the acetone-inducible(More)
