Properties of different lactic acid bacteria isolated from Apis mellifera L. bee-gut.
For the first time, bee-gut associated L. johnsonii and E. faecium strains have been isolated, identified, cultivated and some of their functional properties reported. Expand
Effect of different complex carbon sources on growth and bacteriocin synthesis of Enterococcus faecium.
Results are promising because the trend today is to employ eubiotic or symbiotic products and their use in the poultry industry could be a natural way to protect the flocks against potential pathogens. Expand
Antagonistic effect of Enterococcus faecium J96 against human and poultry pathogenic Salmonella spp.
Production of antagonistic compounds was studied in a strain of Enterococcus faecium isolated from the intestinal tract of a free-ranging chicken and resulted in a bacteriostatic and a bactericidal action against the gram-negative bacteria assayed. Expand
Maize and Bone: Residues of Grinding in Northwestern Argentina*
Archaeometric and archaeobotanical analyses of grinding residues inside an archaeological milling stone tool from the Cueva de los Corrales 1 site in northwestern Argentina are shown. MultipleExpand
Protective effect of Enterococcus faecium J96, a potential probiotic strain, on chicks infected with Salmonella Pullorum.
It is concluded that E. faecium J96 can protect newly hatched chicks from Salmonella Pullorum infection but cannot act as a good therapeutic agent. Expand
Inhibition of Enteropathogens by Lactobacilli Strains Used in Fermented Milk.
Lactobacilli casei and L lactobacillus acidophilus in this study can be considered a potential biotherapeutic treatment in patients infected with certain intestinal pathogens. Expand
Inhibition of Shigella sonnei by Lactobacillus casei and Lact. acidophilus.
Higher levels of anti-shigella antibodies were found both in sera and in small intestinal fluid of mice treated with fermented milk, suggesting that the protective immunity could be mediated by the mucosal tissue. Expand
Calcium Modulates Interactions between Bacteria and Hydroxyapatite
The results are interpreted in terms of Ca2+-mediated adhesion, and relative to the hydrophobic properties of each strain and the electrical properties of the bacterial and solid surfaces (electrophoretic mobility). Expand
Selection of indigenous lactic acid bacteria to reinforce the intestinal microbiota of newly hatched chicken: relevance of in vitro and ex vivo methods for strains characterization.
Based on the natural benefits of the indigenous microbiota, lactic acid bacteria from poultry origin were isolated from hens and broilers intestine and their probiotic potential was further studied to provide bases for a future standardization of methods for the selection of probiotic strains intended to reinforce the microbiota of newly hatched chickens.

Fermentation in vitro of a mixture of dietary fibers and cane molasses by the cecal microbiota: Application on mineral absorption through the laying hen's colonic epithelium
Abstract Short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) production from a mixture of dietary fibers and cane molasses fermentation by laying hens’ cecal microbiota and calcium and iron absorption through the colonicExpand
