Cloning and characterization of the constitutively expressed chitinase C gene from a marine bacterium, Salinivibrio costicola strain 5SM-1.
The chitinase C gene (chiC) encoding chitinase C (ChiC) from Salinivibrio costicola 5SM-1 was cloned and the nucleotide sequence was determined. S. costicola ChiC was expressed constitutively andExpand

Control of Listeria monocytogenes on sliced bologna sausage using a novel bacteriocin, amysin, produced by Bacillus amyloliquefaciens isolated from Thai shrimp paste (Kapi)
Abstract Listeria monocytogenes is a foodborne pathogen causing listeriosis, a disease of great concern due to high fatality rates. Furthermore the bacterium has the ability to survive underExpand

The mechanisms of action of carvacrol and its synergism with nisin against Listeria monocytogenes on sliced bologna sausage
Abstract Consumption of contaminated food appears to be the main route of acquiring listeriosis and has been estimated as the source of L. monocytogenes infection for up to 99% of cases. The interestExpand
