To assess the protective effect of gum acacia (GA) on the performance of Lactobacillus paracasei NFBC 338 during spray-drying, subsequent storage and exposure of the culture to porcine gastric juice. For these studies, Lact. paracasei NFBC 338 was grown in a mixture of reconstituted skim milk (10% w/v) and GA (10% w/v) to mid log phase and spray-dried at outlet temperatures between 95 and 105 degrees C. On spray drying at the higher air outlet temperature of 100-105 degrees C, the GA-treated culture displayed 10-fold greater survival than control cells. Probiotic lactobacilli in GA-containing powders also survived dramatically better than untreated cultures during storage at 4-30 degrees C for 4 weeks. A 20-fold better survival of the probiotic culture in GA-containing powders was obtained during storage at 4 degrees C while, at 15 and 30 degrees C, greater than 1000-fold higher survival was obtained. Furthermore, the viability of probiotic lactobacilli in GA-containing powders was 100-fold higher when exposed to porcine gastric juice over 120 min compared with the control spray-dried culture. The data indicate that GA has applications in the protection of probiotic cultures during drying, storage and gastric transit. Gum acaci...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.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
