Staphylococcal enterotoxin gene cluster: prediction of enterotoxin (SEG and SEI) production and of the source of food poisoning based on Saβ typing.

staphylococcal enterotoxin production, particularly enterotoxin G (SEG) and enterotoxin I (SEI). For this purpose whole genome sequences of 75 strains from different origins (food poisoning outbreaks, human, and ...

Influence of reduced levels or suppression of sodium nitrite on the outgrowth and toxinogenesis of psychrotrophic Clostridium botulinum Group II type B in cooked ham.

total removal of nitrite allowed outgrowth and toxin production during storage of the processed meat product. Results showed that the maximum ingoing amount of nitrite (i.e. 150 mg/kg) that may be added ...

A genoserotyping system for a fast and objective identification of Salmonella serotypes commonly isolated from poultry and pork food sectors in Belgium.

poultry-derived food products. Therefore, a strict monitoring of Salmonella serotypes in food-producing animals is needed to limit the transmission of the pathogen to humans. Additionally, Salmonella can lead to ...

Structural study of l-ascorbic acid 2-phosphate magnesium, a raw material in cell and tissue therapy

Source: Journal of biological Inorganic Chemistry, Volume 25, Issue 6, Number 885 (0) Service:  Médicaments et produits de santé Geneesmiddelen en gezondheidsproducten Medicines and health products ...

A Practical Method to Implement Strain-Level Metagenomics-Based Foodborne Outbreak Investigation and Source Tracking in Routine.

in food samples containing different strains, including a combination of different STEC strains. For the first time, we also managed to link individual strains from a food product to isolates from ...

Use of Whole Genome Sequencing Data for a First in Silico Specificity Evaluation of the RT-qPCR Assays Used for SARS-CoV-2 Detection.

December 2019. COVID-19 cases are confirmed by the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in biological samples by RT-qPCR. However, limited numbers of SARS-CoV-2 genomes were available when the first RT-qPCR methods ...

Agglomeration of titanium dioxide nanoparticles increases toxicological responses in vitro and in vivo

Dominique Lison; Peter H. Hoet; Sybille van den Brule Source: Particle and Fibre Toxicology (2020) Keywords: Agglomerates Biological responses nanomaterials titanium dioxide toxicity Abstract: Background: The ...

Detection of toxins involved in foodborne diseases caused by Gram‐positive bacteria

Therefore, detection of these toxins in food samples, or detection of toxin production capacity in the bacterial isolate, remains one of the cornerstones of microbial food analysis and an essential tool in ...

The African swine fever virus isolate Belgium 2018/1 shows high virulence in European wild boar.

the major threats to profitable pig production worldwide. One of the more recently affected western countries is Belgium. To date, only wild boar are affected in a rather defined area in the Luxembourg ...

Determinants of placental iodine concentrations in a mild-to-moderate iodine-deficient population: an ENVIRONAGE cohort study

Translational Medicine, Volume 18, Issue 1 (2020) Abstract: Background Iodine is an essential trace element for the production of thyroid hormones, and plays a key role during the gestational period for optimal ...
