However, the low efficiency of this procedure necessitating sequential transplantations of islets with the use of 2-3 donors for a single recipient, mainly due to the early loss of transplanted islets, hampers its clinical application.(More)
Lactobacillus sakei is a lactic acid bacterium belonging to the natural flora of meat products. It constitutes the main flora of vacuum-packed meat and is largely used in western Europe as a starter for the manufacturing of fermented sausages. This species is able to grow both under aerobiosis and anaerobiosis. In many technological processes involving it,(More)
Lactobacillus sakei is a lactic acid bacterium widely represented in the natural flora of fresh meat. The aim of this study was to analyze the differences in protein expression during environmental changes encountered during technological processes in which L. sakei is involved in order to gain insight into the ability of this species to grow and survive in(More)
Lactobacillus sakei is a lactic acid bacterium belonging to the natural flora of fresh and vacuum-packed meat, and is used as the starter for manufacturing fermented sausages. This species is now being studied at the genetic level. We investigated uracil prototrophy of strain 23K in order to validate the proteomic approach to study metabolism regulations.(More)
