    ..Thus, we hypothesize that the expression of sialic acid O-acetylesterases with a broad specificity could be an advantage in competition with the gut microbiota for nutrients and facilitate EHEC colonization in the human large intestine. ..

    ..This study identified intrinsic bacterial factors that play a crucial role during the internalization of EHEC O157:H7 strain Sakai into the roots of Valerianella locusta grown under the growth conditions in a greenhouse. ..

    ..This report summarizes the presentations given, highlights the main points of the round table discussion and concludes with an outlook for the different aspects of phage application. ..
  7. Saile N, Schwarz L, Eißenberger K, Klumpp J, Fricke F, Schmidt H. Growth advantage of Escherichia coli O104:H4 strains on 5-N-acetyl-9-O-acetyl neuraminic acid as a carbon source is dependent on heterogeneous phage-Borne nanS-p esterases. Int J Med Microbiol. 2018;308:459-468 pubmed publisher
    ..The results of this study let us suggest that multiple nanS-p alleles may confer a growth advantage by outcompeting other E. coli strains in Neu5,9Ac2 rich environments, such as mucus in animal and human gut. ..

Characterization of in vitro antifungal activities of small and American cranberry (Vaccinium oxycoccos L. and V. macrocarpon Aiton) and lingonberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea L.) concentrates in sugar reduced fruit spreads. Int J Food Microbiol. 2015;204:111-7 pubmed publisher
    ..Cranberry and lingonberry concentrates are interesting candidates for natural preservation against fungal growth in sugar reduced fruit spreads. ..

    ..In addition, the cytotoxicity of wild type strain TS18/08 to Vero cells was in the same range as the EHEC O157:H7 strain EDL933. Therefore, food-borne STEC O113:H21 strain TS18/08 can be considered as a putative human pathogen. ..
