Comparison of methods for the identification and sub-typing of O157 and non-O157 Escherichia coli serotypes and their integration into a polyphasic taxonomy approach

bacteria to utilise 95 various carbon sources and assigns unknown strains to a species by mathematically comparing their utilisation pattern (metabolic fingerprint) with the Biolog database ( Odumeru et al ., 1999 ; Kootallur et al ., 2011 ). Fourier transform-infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy is considered a chemotaxonomic method that is able to provide a great amount of taxonomic data. Spectra obtained from cellular biomass are very characteristic and can be considered as ‘fingerprints’ or molecular patterns distinctive of a particular bacterial strain ( Naumann, 2000

Dietary Fiber Extraction from Defatted Corn Hull by Hot-Compressed Water


Corn hulls were abundant and inexpensive byproducts of the corn dry or wet milling processes, but most of them were discarded as agro-wastes. The aim of this study was to extract the dietary fiber by hot-compressed water (HCW) from defatted corn hull and to determine the chemical properties. Results showed that temperature and time played critical roles in extraction efficiency; the maximal yield of dietary fiber A (DFA) extracted by HCW reached 33.0% at 150°C for 60 min. The yield of dietary fiber B (DFB) increased from 2.0% to 56.9% as the temperature increased from 110 to 180°C, while the yield of solid residue (SR) decreased from 88.7% to 27.7%. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) results demonstrated that C-H, O-H, C=O, COO- occurred in the DFA, SR and DFB. The dietary fiber polysaccharides consisted of arabinose, galactose, glucose, xylose and uronic acid.

A methodological framework to determine optimum durations for the construction of soil water characteristic curves using centrifugation

, Ostrode, Germany), with an 11150 model four-bucket rotor and bespoke adaptors designed to ft within the centrifuge buckets. The bespoke adaptors ( Figure 1 ) were designed to facilitate the use of 5 × 5 cm ( Peerlkamp and Boekel, 1960 ; Reatto et al ., 2008 ; Moncada et al ., 2015 ) ρ b rings commonly used in the field ( Creamer, 2015 ). An Acculab Atilon ATL2202 balance (Sartorius, Goettingen, Germany), with a precision of 0.01 g was used to weigh the soil cores at specified intervals. During the structured experiment, the following pressure steps were applied
