Effects of heat, acid, and freeze-thaw challenges on survival of starved Vibrio parahaemolyticus in minimal salt medium, tryptic soy broth, and filtered oyster homogenate medium.

Abstract

Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a ubiquitous gram-negative enteropathogenic bacterium. To evaluate the risk of stress-adapted V. parahaemolyticus cells in food, we investigated the survivability of starvation-adapted and starvation-low salinity-adapted cells of this pathogen in different media against different stresses. Logarithmically grown bacterial cells… (More)
