Control of Salmonella in foods by using essential oils: A review
This review chiefly focused on in vivo practical utilization of plant volatile oils and components in food model-system as natural anti- Salmonella agents and provides the informative literature data on antibacterial efficacy of plant essential oils (PEOs) and their volatiles. Expand
Chemical composition and antifungal activity of essential oil and various extract of Silene armeria L.
The results obtained in this study demonstrate that S. armeria essential oil and various organic extracts possess a wide range spectrum of fungicidal activity and could become an alternative to synthetic fungicides for controlling certain important plant fungal diseases. Expand
Trachyspermum ammi (L.) fruit essential oil influencing on membrane permeability and surface characteristics in inhibiting food-borne pathogens
The oil, and extracts of Trachyspermum ammi fruits displayed remarkable anti-bacterial effects against Bacillus subtilis ATCC 6633, Pseudomonas aeruginosa KCTC 2004, Salmonella typhimurium K CTC 2515, Enterobactor aerogens KCTT 2190 and Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538. Expand
Anti-inflammatory activity of seed essential oil from Zizyphus jujuba.
It is demonstrated that the essential oil of Z. jujuba seeds might accelerate the development of new drugs for various inflammatory diseases and inhibit the inflammatory responses of skin inflammation in animal model. Expand
Solubilization of insoluble inorganic phosphates by a soil-inhabiting fungus Fomitopsis sp. PS 102
The field soil at Taegu, South Korea was screened for phosphate solubilizing fungal strains. Such strains were identified to be Fomitopsis sp. Phosphate solubilizing ability of Fomitopsis sp. PS 102Expand
Isolation and characterization of a bacteriophage F20 virulent to Enterobacter aerogenes.
An aquatic phage belonging to the widespread T1-like viruses might be helpful for adopting therapeutic strategies against E. aerogenes, and exhibited remarkable stability between room temperature and 70 °C for up to 150 min, and even up to 6 months at room temperature. Expand
Chemical composition, antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of the essential oil and the ethanol extract of Cleistocalyx operculatus (Roxb.) Merr and Perry buds.
The scanning electron microscopic (SEM) studies demonstrated potential detrimental effect of the essential oil on the morphology of MRSA-P249 and VRE-B2332 at the used MIC values, along with the potential effect on cell viabilities of the tested bacteria. Expand
Free radical scavenging activity from different extracts of leaves of Bauhinia vahlii Wight & Arn.
It is concluded that the methanolic extract of B. vahlii leaves have strong antioxidant potential and may serve as a potential source of natural antioxidants. Expand
Thymol disrupts the membrane integrity of Salmonella ser. typhimurium in vitro and recovers infected macrophages from oxidative stress in an ex vivo model.
Thymol's potent role in inducing intracellular killing of S. typhimurium and recovery from oxidative stress in macrophages suggests that thymol can be applied as a naturally occurring drug in place of synthetic drugs. Expand
Chemical composition and anti-fungal properties of the essential oil and crude extracts of Metasequoia glyptostroboides Miki ex Hu
The oil and the meethanol extract and the derived fractions of methanol showed great potential of anti-fungal activity as a mycelial growth inhibition against the tested phytopathogenic fungi. Expand
