Probiotics are live microorganisms which are beneficial for the host when ingested at high enough concentrations. The methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris is widely used as heterologous protein production platform. However, its use as probiotic is poorly studied. The objective of this study was to evaluate some probiotic properties of the P. pastoris strain(More)
The ability of Schistosoma mansoni schistosomula to evade in vitro cytotoxic activity of antibodies plus complement is shown to be increased by incubation with Concanavalin A (Con A) or with non-immune inactivated human serum. This effect was not observed if S-adenosyl-homocysteine (SAH) a methyltransferase inhibitor was added to the incubation medium.(More)
Listeria monocytogenes is a ubiquitous food-borne pathogen, and its presence in food or production facilities highlights the importance of surveillance. Increased understanding of the surface exposed antigens on Listeria would provide potential diagnostic and therapeutic targets. In the present work, using mass spectrometry and genetic cloning, we show that(More)
