Lactobacillus plantarum BM-1 isolated from a traditionally fermented Chinese meat product was found to produce a novel bacteriocin that is active against a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Production of the bacteriocin BM-1 started early in the exponential phase and its maximum activity (5120 AU/mL) was recorded early during the(More)
To study the function of LeERF1 in ethylene triple response on etiolated seedling, plant development and fruit ripening and softening, LeERF1 gene was introduced into tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum cv. No. 4 Zhongshu) through Agrobacterium-mediated transformation. The sense LeERF1 and anti-sense LeERF1 transgenic tomato were obtained. Overexpression of(More)
Phospholipase D (PLD) plays an important role in various physiological processes in plants, including drought tolerance. Here, we report the cloning and characterization of the full-length cDNA of PLDα1 from foxtail millet, which is a cereal crop with high water use efficiency. The expression pattern of the SiPLDα1 gene in foxtail millet revealed that it is(More)
The maize ZnF-AN1 gene family has been phylogenetically studied. Here, we tried to characterize the possible function of ZmAN13, a putative member of the maize ZnF-AN1 gene family. The results showed that ZmAN13 had only one copy in the maize genome. The expression of ZmAN13 was higher in leaves than other organs and was induced by cold and abscisic acid(More)
To investigate the effects of Kluyveromyces marxianus M3 isolated from Tibetan mushrooms on diet-induced hypercholesterolemia in rats, female Wistar rats were fed a high-cholesterol diet (HCD) for 28 d to generate hyperlipidemic models. Hyperlipidemic rats were assigned to four groups, which were individually treated with three different dosages of K.(More)
The underlying mechanisms imparting the growth phase-dependent acid tolerance have not been extensively investigated. In this study, we compared the acid resistance of the Bifidobacterium longum strain BBMN68 from different growth phases at lethal pH values (pH 2.5, 3.0, and 3.5), and analyzed the activity of H+-ATPase, the composition of fatty acids, and(More)
Two application methods were used to investigate the effect of plantaricin BM-1 on the control of Listeria monocytogenes and background spoilage bacteria in sliced vacuum-packaged cooked ham without the addition of any chemical preservatives, including sodium nitrite, during 35 days of storage at 4°C. Regardless of the application method, plantaricin BM-1(More)
In recent years, bacteriocin, as a natural antimicrobial compound, provides enormous promise to be used in food safety preservation. In this work, the polyethylene(PE)-based biological preservative films incorporating plantaricin BM-1, a typical IIa bacteriocin produced by Lactobacillus plantarum BM-1, were developed and characterized. The results showed(More)
Plantaricin BM-1, a typical IIa bacteriocin, is produced by Lactobacillus plantarum BM-1, which can be isolated from a traditionally fermented Chinese meat product. This bacteriocin exhibits perfect thermal stability and broad inhibitory activity against certain foodborne pathogens. In this study, we investigated the effect of plantaricin BM-1 combined with(More)
