Continuous production of pediocin 5 from Pediococcus acidilactici UL5 was investigated in MRS medium at different pH and dilution rates during continuous free cell (FC) and immobilized cell (IC) fermentations. Pediocin 5 activity from FC operated at a dilution rate of 0.31 h-1 largely increased from 128 to 2048 AU mL-1 as pH decreased from 7.0 to 5.0. Pediocin 5 activity in IC at a dilution rate of 0.93 h-1 was much less affected by pH, varying from 256 AU mL-1 at pH 7.0 to 512 AU mL-1 at pH 5.0. At the optimum pH 5.0, the dilution rate greatly influenced pediocin 5 activity both in FC and IC. Pediocin 5 production during continuous FC culture decreased with time for all dilution rates tested except 0.31 h-1 and average activity over 144 h cultures reached a maximal value of 4915 AU mL-1 at a dilution rate of 0.26 h-1. For IC, pediocin 5 production was stable with time and increased with the dilution rate from 256 to 1024 AU mL-1 in the range of 0.47-2.28 h-1. Three Listeria strains were tested for their ability to screen low bacteriocin-producing variants (Bac+v) of Bac+ cells in FC and IC cultures by using a modified deferred antagonism method. Ten to 28% of Bac+v cells appeared after 144 h of FC cultures at dilution rates in...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.
