In applying S. mendoza the following four liquid media were tested as to whether they can be used as enrichment broths for salmonellae in milk powder: phosphate buffered water, correspondingly buffered peptone broth, tetrathionate and selenite lactose broth. The yield of salmonellae in these tests is largely independent of the starting pH value of the prepared milk suspension which was varied between 5.8 and 8.2 (Fig. 1). In water the pH dropped within 24 hours (Fig. 2), in peptone and tetrathionate broth within 48 hours down to figures between 4.1 and 4.4 (Fig. 3 and 4), in selenite broth final figures of pH 5.7 were not attained before the lapse of 6 days (Fig. 5). The absolutely highest germ figures were observed in selenite broth. Quite in general the bacteria figure maximum was not attained until the 3rd--5th day, whereupon the germ figures dropped again. In peptone broth the introduced salmonellae were recovered in 73% of all cases after the lapse of 24 hours. Also in tetrathionate the success quota was about 73%, but part of it (8%) did not increase until a lapse of more than 72 hours incubation time, although the pH had already become strongly acid some days previously. In water the introduced salmonellae were traced on...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

Femoral Neoplasms are bone tumors that arise in the femur. Discover the latest research on femoral neoplasms here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
