The combined effect of nisin and moderate heat to increase the killing of Listeria monocytogenes in cans of "cold-pack" lobster was investigated. Adding nisin at a level of 25 mg/kg of can contents to the brine surrounding the lobster, in combination with a heat process giving internal can temperatures of 60 degrees C for 5 min and 65 degrees C for 2 min,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the acute anti-inflammatory effects of topically applied emu oil. ANIMALS 96 male CD-1 mice assigned randomly to 4 groups, each comprising 24 mice. PROCEDURE To induce auricular inflammation, 50 microl of a solution comprising 10 microl of croton oil dissolved in 1 ml of acetone was applied to the inner surface of the left auricle(More)
The tyrosine concentration of fasted rats was measured in plasma, brain and tissues receiving sympathetic innervation after L-tyrosine (200 mg/kg) was administered alone or in the presence of an equimolar cocktail containing isoleucine, leucine and valine. In the samples taken at 15, 30, 45, 60, 120 or 180 minutes, the highest concentrations of L-tyrosine(More)
Resuscitation rates of injured Listeria monocytogenes on conventional selective Listeria enrichment broth and nonselective Trypticase soy broth containing 0.6% yeast extract were compared. Cells were heated to 60 degrees C for 5 min or frozen at -20 degrees C for 7 days. Inoculation of Trypticase soy broth-yeast extract with the stressed cells resulted in(More)
Seventeen antimicrobial agents were evaluated separately or in combination for their efficiency as selective supplements in a broth medium against six different serotypes of Yersinia enterocolitica and 20 selected strains of different Gram-negative bacteria. Irgasan (DP300, 5-chloro-2-(2,4- dichlorophenoxy) phenol) at a concentration of 4 micrograms ml-1(More)
In this paper, we describe BuildBot, a robotic interface developed to assist with the continuous integration process utilized by co-located agile software development teams. BuildBot’s physical nature allows us to engage the agile software development team members through vision, hearing and touch. In this way, BuildBot becomes an active part of the(More)
Agile methods [1] are becoming popular in the software industry. In agile software development projects, it is imperative that all software written by each developer integrates properly into the entire project. To this end, most agile teams adopt Continuous Integration (CI). CI is the practice of automatically compiling, deploying and testing the entire(More)
