Environmental fate and behaviour of the biocontrol agent Bacillus amyloliquefaciens CPA-8 after preharvest application to stone fruit
(Pest Management Science, 2017-09-30)
BACKGROUND:Bacillus amyloliquefaciensstrain CPA-8 has been described as an effective biocontrol agent to control brownrot in stone fruit for both preharvest and postharvest applications. However, no information about the ...
Dry formulations of the biocontrol agent Candida sakeCPA‐1 using fluidised bed drying to control the main postharvest diseases on fruits
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2017-01-23)
BACKGROUND: The biocontrol agentCandida sakeCPA-1 is effective against several diseases. Consequently, the optimisationof a dry formulation ofC. saketo improve its shelf life and manipulability is essential for increasing ...
Evaluation of postharvest calcium treatment and biopreservation with Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG on the quality of fresh-cut ‘Conference’ pears
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2018-03-25)
BACKGROUND Biological preservation with probiotic bacteria has arisen as an alternative to control the growth of foodborne pathogens on food. The objective of this work was to evaluate the effect of postharvest calcium ...
Biopreservation of fresh-cut pear using Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and effect on quality and volatile compounds
(LWT - Food Science and Technology, 2017-09-18)
In recent years, the consumption of minimally processed fruit has increased. However, unfortunately, these products could be an appropriate vehicle for the transmission of foodborne pathogens. In this study, the antagonistic ...
The Salt-Stress Response of the Transgenic Plum Line J8-1 and Its Interaction with the Salicylic Acid Biosynthetic Pathway from Mandelonitrile
(International Journal of Molecular Sciences, 2018-11-08)
Salinity is considered as one of the most important abiotic challenges that affect crop productivity. Plant hormones, including salicylic acid (SA), are key factors in the defence signalling output triggered during plant ...

(Food Microbiology, 2017-08-12)
Genome Sequence of the Brown Rot Fungal Pathogen Monilinia laxa
(Genome Announcements, 2018-04-26)
Monilinia laxa (phylum Ascomycota) is a plant pathogen responsible for the brown rot blossom blight disease in stone fruit trees of the Rosaceae family, such as apricots. We report here the genome sequence of strain 8L ...
Differential contribution of the two major polygalacturonases from Penicillium digitatum to virulence towards citrus fruit
(International Journal of Food Microbiology, 2018-05-31)
The fungus Penicillium digitatum is the causal agent of the citrus green mould, the major postharvest diseases of citrus fruit. Lesions on the surface of infected fruits first appear as soft areas around the inoculation ...
Effect of storage on total phenolics, antioxidant capacity, and physicochemical properties of blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) jam
(Journal of Food Processing and Preservation, 2018-05-24)
This study investigated the effects of storage on the physicochemical and nutritional aspects ofblueberry jam. Jams were stored at either 4, 25, or 358C during a 56-day period. The pH was sig-nificantly reduced during ...
Efficacy of chlorine, peroxyacetic acid and mild-heat treatment on the reduction of natural microflora and maintenance of quality of fresh-cut calçots (Allium cepa L.)
(LWT - Food Science and Technology, 2018-05-04)
Calçots are the immature floral stems of the second-year onion (Allium cepa L.) resprouts with economic importance in Spain. The effect of sodium hypochlorite, peroxyacetic acid and mild heat treatment on the microbiological, ...
