    1199 Words  | 5 Pages

    Abstract: Escherichia coli (E. coli) is currently one of the most predominant human food-borne pathogens. In the dairy industry, recently, attention has been drawn to the potential use of bacteriophages (phages) to control bacteria in dairy products. In this study, a cocktail of three Escherichia coli bacteriophages (EcoM-AG2, EcoM-AG3 and EcoM-AG10) was tested to evaluate its ability to control Escherichia coli O126:H7 in experimentally contaminated skim milk. In Tryptic Soy Broth (TSB), there was

    trp and ara operon trp operon: The trp operon is a group of genes that are used, or transcribed, together that codes for the components for production of tryptophan. The trp operon is present in many bacteria, but was first characterized in Escherichia coli. The operon is regulated so that when tryptophan synthesis are not expressed. It was an important experimental system for learning about gene regulation, and is commonly used to teach gene regulation. Discovered in 1953 by Jacques Monod and

All the formulations produced good growth of microbes similar to the conventional media. In the study of Ravathie Arulanantham, Sevvel Pathmanathan, Nirmala Ravimannan and Kularajany Niranjan, 2012, they culture Escherichia coli, Bacillus sp., Klebsiella sp., Staphylococcus sp. and Pseudomonas test microorganisms using edible

  • Pathogenic Bacteria In Fish

    1614 Words  | 7 Pages

    Contamination with pathogenic bacteria from the human/animal reservoir can occur when the landing place is unhygienic or when the fish are washed with contaminated water. Upon the processing of fish, its exposure to water is a critical part as pathogens may be present in the water used which can cause contamination and spoilage (Shoolongela & Schneider, 2012). Contamination of food can occur because of problems in food production, preparation, storage or cooking. The aquatic environment and soft

  • Food Spoilage Essay

    1141 Words  | 5 Pages

    ABSTRACT Food spoilage is defined as the process of change in physical and chemical properties of the food. The purpose of this study is to be able to detect spoiled food samples using different human senses. According to the book Practical Cookery Level 3, food spoilage can be detected by our senses such as smell, touch, taste and sight. In this experiment, only the texture, appearance and smell were used and exclude tasting the samples to avoid any possible harmful effect to the experimenter

    that some of the colonies have turned pink in colour. What information does this tell you about the bacteria in the sample, and why did the colony change colour? [2 marks] This tells me that the bacteria in the sample contains coliforms such as Escherichia coli (E.coli). The colonies changed colour as the enzymes produced by the bacterial cells reacted with the red galactosidase in the agar medium, this reaction causes the colonies to turn pink making them easily

    Introduction The practicum has been developed in RIKEN Centre of Developmental Biology in Kobe, in the laboratory of Axial Pattern Dynamics under the supervision of Inomata-sensei and Matsukawa-san. In the laboratory they try to artificially regulate the gradient shape, they can control morphogen-dependent pattern formation. In general, the shape of a gradient is defined by three factors; synthesis, diffusion, and degradation of morphogen. So, they attempt to spatiotemporally regulate the gradient

    Topic Food Microbiology Food microbiology studies the role of microorganisms in foods. It includes aspects of microbial ecology in food as well as the use of microorganisms for production of ingredients and foods. Moreover, some microorganisms represent a major challenge for public health due to their ability to cause diseases. Food preservation aims at inactivating and controlling the growth of spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms, insuring shelf-stable and healthy foods. Thus, continuous

    The putrid smell of Escherichia coli is one that is immediately identifiable to the few lucky individuals who recognize its scent. It is also an aroma with which I became intimately sensitive to as I shuttled petri dishes of the bacterium in and out of an incubator. While my classmates shied away from the task of handling the pungent bacteria used in our recombinant DNA experiments, I took to the task eagerly, anything that would take me one step closer to my goal of researching. I had the opportunity

  • Bacteria And Bacteria Pros And Cons

    Bacteria are prokaryotic, which means that they do not have a nuclear membrane around the genetic material. With the exception of Ribosomes, bacteria do not have cell bodies. Bacteria are very quick to reproduce; for example, the most studied one E. coli can in favorable circumstances divide every 20 minutes. Thanks to its rapid ability to divide, bacteria are very quick to adapt to changing living conditions. Although the structure is simple, their metabolites may be highly developed and specialized
