Abstract Response mechanism of Cronobacter sakazakii under stress of combination of citral and carvacrol was investigated by transcriptome sequencing. Twenty-five significantly differentially expressed genes were identified to be closely related to the ability of C. sakazakii tolerating the stress after analysis, mainly involving glycerol metabolism; citrate metabolism; formate metabolism; ribosome function and transmembrane transport system. Combination of carvacrol and citral could cause dissipation of proton motive force (PMF) and the psp regulon is an important switch in the response of C. sakazakii to this condition. To maintain PMF, psp regulated cellular processes to reduce the consumption of cellular energy for cell membrane repair and proton consumption. In T1 group (low concentration group), C. sakazakii remained aerobic metabolism and expression of glycerol metabolism related genes were upregulated for cell membrane repair and proton consumption. In T2 group (high concentration group), bacteria convert from aerobic metabolism to anaerobic metabolism to reduce energy consumption and expression of genes in formate metabolism were upregulated to consume excessive intracellular protons; citrate lyase-related genes were upregulated to decompose citrate, the intermediate of the tricarboxylic acid cycle, to generate acetyl CoA for production of cell membrane phospholipids.

AbstractIn recent years, with the continuous improvement of people's living standard, the importance of healthy lifestyles is becoming more and more recognized. Therefore, food safety has attracted much attention. This has prompted people to study new technologies that can guarantee food safety without the use of preservatives. Compared with other types of food preservatives, essential oils (EOs) are gotten more attention, because they meet the current development trend of food additives about "...

Abstract This study was conducted to analyze the antimicrobial activity of olive oil polyphenols extract (OOPE) against Cronobacter sakazakii . The antimicrobial effect was evaluated by minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) values, and survival of bacteria after treatments with OOPE in sterile normal saline (NS) and Luria-Bertani (LB) broth. The changes in intracellular ATP concentration, cell membrane potential, content of bacterial protein, and cel...

Strong desiccation tolerance is an outstanding feature of Cronobacter sakazakii and can enable the bacterium to survive in a dry food matrix (such as milk powder) for a long time. Therefore, contamination of food possessing low water activity with C. sakazakii can increase the risk of infection in human beings, particularly in neonates and infants. However, the mechanism underlying the desiccation tolerance property of C. sakazakii is largely unknown. In this study, the desiccation tolerance cha...

Abstract The adaptability of Escherichia coli O157:H7 to different environmental stresses, including prolonged cold stress, poses a threat to food safety. In order to elucidate the prolonged cold response in E. coli O157:H7, genes related to prolonged coldresistance and their expression changes in E. coli O157:H7 ATCC35150 were screened and identified by analyzing their transcriptomedifferences between normal (37鈥癈) and low temperature storage (4鈥癈 or 鈭20鈥癈, 10鈥痙), using RNA-sequencing. Accor...

Abstract Listeria monocytogenes and Cronobacter sakazakii are notorious pathogens involved in numerous foodborne outbreaks after ingested contaminated food. Bacteriocins are natural food preservatives, some of which have antimicrobial activity comparable with antibiotics. In this study, a plasmid encoded novel bacteriocin BMP11 produced by Lactobacillus crustorum MN047 was innovatively identified by combining complete genome and LC-MS/MS. The BMP11 was found to have rich 伪-helix conformation aft...

Abstract Salmonella is a major foodborne pathogen throughout the world and able to resist extreme acid stress such as stomach gastric juice after mild acid adaptation, which makes it a potential hazard in food industry. We conducted a comparative transcriptomic analysis by high-throughout RNA-seq to elucidate the Acid Tolerance Response (ATR) in Salmonella Enteritidis. Among these 554 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) identified in this study, the expression of 280 DEGs were up-regulated and...

Abstract Cronobacter is a group of opportunistic pathogen responsible for necrotizing enterocolitis, meningitis and septicaemia especially to infant and neonate, with high lethality ranging in 40%鈥80%. Some of them are able to survive in infant milk formula and still possesses capability of pathogenicity and virulence, biofilm formation, and high resistance to elevated osmotic pressure, low pH, heat, oxidation and desiccation. The genus Cronobacter consists of a diverse group of Gram-negative ba...

Aims Urinary tract infections are caused primarily by uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC), and indwelling catheters are usually colonized by UPEC biofilms tolerant to common antibiotics. Hence, UPEC biofilms pose a substantial challenge, and there is an urgent need for effective control strategies. Methods and Results In this study, 79 essential oils were screened for antibiofilm ability against UPEC. Components of active oils were identified, and their antibiofilm activities were also investi...
