BACKGROUND The targeting of Staphylococcus aureus biofilm structures are now gaining interest as an alternative strategy for developing new types of antimicrobial agents. Magnolol (MOL) shows inhibitory activity against S. aureus biofilms and Triton X-100-induced autolysis in vitro, although there are no data regarding the molecular mechanisms of MOL action(More)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis), the causative agent of tuberculosis, still causes higher mortality than any other bacterial pathogen until now. With the emergence and spread of multidrug-resistant (MDR) and extensively drug-resistant (XDR-TB) strains, it becomes more important to search for alternative targets to develop new antimycobacterial(More)
BACKGROUND Food safety is an important worldwide public health concern, and microbial contamination in foods not only leads to food deterioration and shelf life reduction but also results in economic losses and disease. OBJECTIVE The main aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of epsilon-poly-L-lysine (ε-PL) and citral combination against(More)
BACKGROUND In epidemic regions of the world, brucellosis is a reemerging zoonosis with minimal mortality but is a serious public hygiene problem. Currently, there are various methods for brucellosis diagnosis, however few of them are available to be used to diagnose, especially for serious cross-reaction with other bacteria. METHOD To overcome this(More)
A novel virulent phage named JL1 against Escherichia coli O157:H7 was isolated from raw sewage. It was found that JL1 has an icosahedral head and a long flexible non-contractile tail. The complete genome of JL1 is composed of a linear double-stranded DNA of 43,457 base pairs in length, with 54.77 % G+C content and 60 putative open reading frames. Morphology(More)
