Hypochlorite inactivation kinetics of lactococcal bacteriophages

BUZRUL, Sencer
Alpas, Hami
AKÇELİK, Mustafa
Ten heat-resistant lactococcal phages in M17 broth were inactivated by exposure to a range of different hypochlorite concentrations (2000-5000 mgl(-1)). Deviations from first-order kinetics as sigmoidal shapes were observed in the survival curves of all bacteriophages. Therefore, an empirical model with four parameters was used to describe hypochlorite inactivation. The model provided good fit for all phages; however, it was observed that there was a high correlation between the parameters of this model. That is why, the number of parameters was reduced from four to two with a slight loss of goodness-of-fit and this reduced model produced fits comparable to the original model. Alternative D and z values were also proposed for the model. By comparing the times necessary to reduce the number of phages six- or seven-logs, the most hypochlorite-resistant phages were found as: phi pld67 37, phi pll47 21 and phi pld66 36. Demonstration of this model may also be used for other bacteriophages inactivated by other biocides. (C) 2006 Swiss Society of Food Science and Technology. Published by Elsevier Ltd.

Antioxidative and free radical scavenging properties of rosemary extract
Basaga, H; Öztekin, Ceren; Acikel, F (Elsevier BV, 1997-01-01)
Autoxidation of corn and soybean oils was prevented in the presence of 0.1 g/kg rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis L.) extract and butylated hydroxy toluene (BHT). At the end of a 4-d period, the peroxide value in corn oil reached 13.0 and 8.2 in the presence of rosemary extract and BHT respectively. For soybean oil, the peroxide value was found to be 10.0 and 6.6 in the presence of rosemary extract and BHT respectively Rosemary extract and BHT when added as mixtures of 75:25, 50:50 and 25:75 had a synergist...
Thermal and chemical inactivation of lactococcal bacteriophages
BUZRUL, Sencer; OZTURK, Pinar; Alpas, Hami; AKÇELİK, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
Ten lactococcal bacteriophages in M 17 broth were treated by heat (72 degrees C, 15 min and 90 degrees C, 5 min), ethanol and isopropanol at concentrations of 10%, 50%. 75% and 100% (v/v). The heat treatments were not sufficient to inactivate all the bacteriophages studied whereas ethanol, which was also more efficient biocide than isopropanol, at a concentration of 75% could inactivate all the phages in I min. The 50% and 75% of ethanol were more effective than 100%, which was also observed for isopropanol...
A comparative study on the effects of glucose monohydrate, hot water, and sodium pyrophosphate on quality parameters and microbial flora of deboned and matured brisket
Göğüş, Uğur; BOZOGLU, F.; Alpas, Hami (Wiley, 2007-09-01)
Organic acids, hot water (HW), and chlorine have been commonly used incarcass decontamination for years. However, it has been observed that organic acids have adverse effects on color and are corrosive, while HW is discoloring. On the other hand, glucose fermentation by lactic acid bacteria in meat during the rigor period might be effective in microbial inhibition, without producing an adverse effect on the organoleptic quality of meat. Therefore study, briskets were treated with 6 different applications: D...
Effects of Bentonite Combinations and Gelatin on the Rheological Behaviour of Bentonite – Apple Juice Dispersions
Dik, Tunay; Özilgen, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 1996-11)
Rheological behaviour of bentonite – apple juice suspensions were experimentally determined at 25°C, within the shear rate range of 4.3 to 43.1 s−1with 0.90, 1.33 and 2.66 g/L bentonite mixtures and 0 to 0.25 g/L (on dry basis) gelatin concentrations. The mixtures consisted of 100%, 80%, 60%, 40% 20% and 0% Ca-bentonite and balance Na-bentonite combinations. The experimental data were described with the power law as τ =Kγ.1.56. The consistency index was related to the calcium, sodium and gelatin concentrati...
Recovery of strawberry aroma compounds by pervaporation
Isci, A; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (Elsevier BV, 2006-07-01)
The main objective of this study was to determine the effects of feed temperature (30, 40, 50 degrees C), concentration (50, 100, 150 ppm), composition (different strawberry model solutions) and permeate pressure (4, 8 mbar) on recovery of strawberry aroma compounds by pervaporation. Pervaporation was performed using a hydrophobic membrane, PERVAP 1070 (PDMS). As the feed temperature increased or downstream pressure decreased, the mass flux and selectivity increased in pervaporation of methyl butyrate (MTB)...
