Examination of bacteriophage as a biocontrol method for salmonella on fresh-cut fruit: a model study.
TLDR
Higher phage concentrations and/or the use of low-pH-tolerant phage mutants may be required to increase the efficacy of the phage treatment in reducing Salmonella contamination of fresh-cut produce with a low pH.
Biocontrol of Listeria monocytogenes on Fresh-Cut Produce by Treatment with Lytic Bacteriophages and a Bacteriocin
TLDR
It was found that applied Listeria monocytogenes populations survived and increased only slightly onfresh-cut Red Delicious apples stored at 10°C but increased significantly on fresh-cut honeydew melons stored at10°C over 7 days.
Fruit quality, antioxidant capacity, and flavonoid content of organically and conventionally grown blueberries.
TLDR
Results from this study showed that blueberry fruit grown from organic culture yielded significantly higher sugars, malic acid, total phenolics, total anthocyanins, and antioxidant activity (ORAC) than fruit from the conventional culture.
Alkylphenol and alkylphenol-ethoxylates in carp, water, and sediment from the Cuyahoga River, Ohio.
TLDR
For all media (water, fish, and sediment) the total NPE (NP + NPE) concentrations were higher in the more urbanized downstream section of the river, and the average total estimated NPE concentrations were 1.3-1.8 times higher.
Optimizing concentration and timing of a phage spray application to reduce Listeria monocytogenes on honeydew melon tissue.
TLDR
The results from this study indicate that the effectiveness of the phage application on honeydew melon pieces can be optimized by using a phage concentration of at least 10(8) PFU/ml applied up to 1 h after processing of the honeyd Dew melons.
Chimeric Phage Lysins Act Synergistically with Lysostaphin To Kill Mastitis-Causing Staphylococcus aureus in Murine Mammary Glands
TLDR
The animal model results demonstrate the potential of fusion peptidoglycan hydrolases as antimicrobials for the treatment of S. aureus-induced mastitis.
Nitrogen metabolism of lactating ewes fed rumen-protected methionine and lysine.
TLDR
Examining the effects of increased supply of CP or a mixture of encapsulated methionine and lysine or both on the performance of ewes and their nursing twin lambs found increased growth of nursing lambs would be an important beneficial effect of supplementing diets of eewes with encapsulated Methionines and Lysine.
Triple-acting Lytic Enzyme Treatment of Drug-Resistant and Intracellular Staphylococcus aureus
TLDR
E engineered triple-acting staphylolytic peptidoglycan hydrolases wherein three unique antimicrobial activities from two parental proteins are combined into a single fusion protein effectively reduces the incidence of resistant strain development.
