The potential influence of fruit polyphenols on colonic microflora and human gut health.
The effect of common dietary polyphenols on growth of human gut bacteria and their adhesion to enterocytes was investigated. The influence on the growth of a probiotic (Lactobacillus rhamnosus), aExpand

Physiology of biofilms of thermophilic bacilli—potential consequences for cleaning
Abstract. Thermophilic Bacillus species readily attached and grew on stainless steel surfaces, forming mature biofilms of >106.0 cells/cm2 in 6 h on a surface inoculated with the bacteria. CleanExpand

Cloning of a mucin-desulfating sulfatase gene from Prevotella strain RS2 and its expression using a Bacteroides recombinant system.
A gene encoding the mucin-desulfating sulfatase in Prevotella strain RS2 has been cloned, sequenced, and expressed in an active form. A 600-bp PCR product generated using primers designed from aminoExpand
