Isolation and characterization of Lactobacillus plantarum BLS29 as a potential probiotic starter culture for pork sausage production

The aim of this study was to isolate and characterize lactic acid bacteria (LAB) from naturally fermented pork sausages and test them for use as a probiotic starter culture in the production of fermented sausages. LAB (n=26) were isolated from natural fermented pork sausages. Isolates were identified using 16S rDNA or Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) region sequencing. After that, strains were characterized based on...

Isolation and genetic characterization of endophytic and rhizospheric microorganisms from Butia purpurascens Glassman

Interactions between plants and microorganism are complex and can affect the establishment of plant communities and change ecosystem properties. These interactions are of interest for researchers and have many ecological and biotechnological applications. The present study is the first report on the microbial diversity associated with Butia purpurascens Glassman, and the goal was to isolate and identify the genetic...

Isolation and identification of Sparicotyle chrysophrii (Monogenea: Microcotylidae) from gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata L.) in the Mediterranean Sea, Greece

The gilthead sea bream is one of the main aquacultured fish species in the Mediterranean Sea. Sparicotyle chrysophrii is an ectoparasite specific for sea bream and able to cause mortality in the Mediterranean aquaculture system. In this study, a total of 20 gilthead sea bream were sampled for parasitological research at Heraklion Bay, Crete, Greece. Gills of the fish were dissected and examined for parasites using a...
