Pattern of shell utilization by the hermit crab Paguristes tortugae (Diogenidae) from Anchieta Island, southern Brazil*
Regression analysis showed that shell occupation by P. tortugae involves inter- and intraspecific competition as well as shell type availability in the field and best correlation between the size of the crabs and shell dry weight was shown.
The influence of shell species and size on the shell selection pattern of Paguristes tortugae (Decapoda, Diogenidae) from Anchieta Island (Ubatuba, Brazil)
Shell selection by the hermit crab Paguristes tortugae Schmitt, 1933 from Anchieta Island (Brazil) was analyzed using the six most frequently occupied shell species in the field and taking into
Individual and combined antimicrobial activity of oleuropein and chemical sanitizers
In this study, the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of oleuropein (OLE), a phenolic compound extracted from Oliveira leaves, alone or in combination with commercial sanitizers, was determined
Effects of Oleuropein and Peracetic Acid as Sanitizing Agents for Inactivation of Listeria monocytogenes Biofilms
A potential application of oleuropein (OLE) for enhancing the bactericidal effect of PAA against L. monocytogenes biofilms is indicated, although further studies are necessary to understand the mechanisms of action of OLE in combination with commercial chemical sanitizers.
Effect of oleuropein and peracetic acid on suspended cells and mono-species biofilms formed by Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli
Results indicate a potential for using OLE as an additive to enhance the antimicrobial effect of PAA against biofilms formed by S. aureus.
