In the present study, a specific binding activity between lectin and Listeria monocytogenes was studied by agglutination assay. The ten lectins were screened for their agglutination activity (HA) against L. monocytogenes ATCC 15313, 19111, 19115, 19118, 13932 & BAA 751 along with lab isolates of RM -17 and RM 26. Wherein 84.4±1.76% binding was observed with wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) this was followed by 70% with Helix pometia agglutinin(HPA), 51.25% with Arachis hypogea lectin (AHL), 39.375… Expand

Interactions with lectins and agglutination profiles of clinical, food, and environmental isolates of Listeria
In a comparative study of 15 epidemiologically relevant isolates of L. monocytogenes from five distinct outbreaks, strains with identical phage types and/or DNA fingerprints displayed identical lectin profiles, suggesting the heterogeneity of agglutination profiles may form the basis of a new approach to L.monocyTogenes typing.

Modulation of Salmonella infection by the lectins of Canavalia ensiformis (Con A) and Galanthus nivalis (GNA) in a rat model in vivo
The plant lectins, Concanavalin A (Con A) and Galanthus nivalis agglutinin (GNA) have been prefed to rats and significantly reduced pathogen numbers in the lower part of the small bowel and the large intestine of rats infected with Salm. Expand
Listeria monocytogenes in RTE foods marketed in Italy: prevalence and automated EcoRI ribotyping of the isolates.
The results confirmed the existence of a widespread population of Listeria monocytogenes, characterized by highly related strains existing in different geographical areas, and EcoRI ribotyping was confirmed as a rapid and reliable method for L. monocyTogenes typing. Expand

Assessment of lectin-binding analysis for in situ detection of glycoconjugates in biofilm systems.
Lectin-binding analysis represents a valuable tool to examine the glycoconjugate distribution in fully hydrated biofilms and chemical heterogeneities within extracellular biofilm locations can be identified in order to examined the role ofExtracellular polymeric substances in environmental biofilm systems.

In the three plants, the contamination of final products did not seem to originate from the L. monocytogenes present on raw salmon, but from the processing environment. Expand
