ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT The objective of this study was to evaluate the antifungal activity of nanoemulsions encapsulating essential oil of oregano (Origanum vulgare), both in vitro and after application on Minas Padrão cheese. Nanodispersions were obtained by the phase inversion temperature method. Cladosporium sp., Fusarium sp., and Penicillium sp. genera were isolated from cheese samples and used to evaluate antifungal activity. Minimal inhibitory concentrations of non-encapsulated and encapsulated oregano essential oil were determined, and they were influenced by the encapsulation of the essential oil depending on the type of fungus. The antifungal activity of the nanoencapsulated oregano essential oil in cheese slices showed no evidence of an effect of the MICs, when applied in the matrix. On the other hand, an influence of contact time of the nanoemulsion with the cheese was observed, due to the increase in water activity. It was concluded that nanoencapsulated oregano essential oil presented an inhibitory effect against the three genera of fungi evaluated. If environmental parameters, such as storage temperature and water activity, were controlled, the inhibitory effect of nanoemulsions of oregano oil could possibly be greatly improved, and they could be presented as a potential alternative for the preservation of Minas Padrão cheese against fungal contamination.

ABSTRACT

Microorganisms causing subclinical mastitis in water buffalo were isolated from 20 buffalo milk samples at four dairy farms located in central region of São Paulo State, Brazil, through testing of somatic cell count (SCC), standard plate count (SPC), biochemical, PCR assays and antimicrobial profile. The SCC showed average of 721,000 cells/mL in the milk, indicating the presence of subclinical mastitis. The overall average for SPC was 1.8 x 104 CFU/mL. The microorganism most frequently isolation according to biochemical tests were: Staphylococcus epidermidis (17%), Staphylococcus aureus (15%), Bacillus spp. (14%), Acinetobacter spp. (12.5%); with intermediate frequency: Pseudomonas aeruginosa (9.5%); Shigella flexneri (7.0%), Streptococcus spp. (5.5%), Corynebacterium spp. (5.0%), Escherichia coli (4.5%), Serratia marcescens (4.0%), Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (4.0%), and low incidence: Klebsiella rhinoscleromatis (0.5%), Klebsiella ozaenae (0.5%), Tatumella ptyseos (0.5%), Enterobacter cloacae (0.5%). The molecular analysis indicated that samples positive by culture method of the genera Staphylococcus, Streptococcus and E. coli were positive by PCR. Para S. aureus and S. epidermidis the highest percentages of observed sensitivity were gentamicin (100%) and vancomycin (100%); for the genus Streptococcus to gentamicin and oxacillin and E. coli to Ampicilin. These findings may help in the control and treatment of subclinical mastitis in buffaloes and contribute to improving the efficiency and quality of the milk produced.(AU)


Microrganismos causadores de mastites subclínicas em búfalas foram isolados desde 20 amostras de leite de búfalos de quatro granjas leiteiras localizadas na região central do Estado de São Paulo, Brasil, através dos testes contagem de células somáticas (CCS), contagem padrão em placas (CPP), provas bioquímicas, reações de PCR e perfil antimicrobiano. A CCS apresentou uma mediana de 721.000 cel/mL no leite, indicando presença de mastite subclínica. A média geral de CPP foi de 1,8x104 UFC/mL. Os microrganismos com maior frequência de isolamento segundo os testes bioquímicos foram: Staphylococcus epidermidis (17%), Staphylococcus aureus (15%), Bacillus spp. (14%), Acinetobacter spp. (12,5%); frequência intermediaria: Pseudomonas aeruginosa (9,5%); Shigella flexneri (7,0%), Streptococcus spp. (5,5%), Corynebacterium spp. (5,0%), Escherichia coli (4,5%), Serratia marcescens (4,0%), Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (4,0%), e baixa incidência: Klebsiella rhinoscleromatis (0,5%), Klebsiella ozaenae (0,5%), Tatumella ptyseos (0,5%), Enterobacter cloacae (0,5%). A análise molecular indicou que as amostras positivas pelo método de cultura dos gêneros Staphylococcus, Streptococcus e Escherichia coli foram positivas por PCR. Para S. aureus e S. epidermidis os maiores percentuais de sensibilidade observados foram gentamicina (100%) e vancomicina (100%); para o gênero Streptococcus à gentamicina e oxacilina e para E. coli à ampicilina. Este resultados podem ajudar no controle e tratamento da mastite subclínica em búfalos e contribuir para melhorar a eficiência e qualidade do leite produzido.(AU)
