ABSTRACT

Aims: The aim of this study was to investigate the ability of adhesion of different Salmonella’s serovars (S. Newport, S. Muenster, S. Kentucky and S. Kiel) isolated from food surfaces under two ionic strengths (0.1M; 0.001M), in order to understand the influence of environmental characteristics on their adhesion behaviour. Place and Duration of Study: Laboratory of bioprocesses and biointerfaces; Sciences and technologies Faculty (FST) between February 2015 and July 2015. Methodology: Physicochemical properties (hydrophobicity, electron donor- electron acceptor) of cells surfaces and substratum surface were determined using contact angle method. The adhesion of Salmonellastrains on glass was studied using optical microscope and Matlab program. Results: Salmonella strains showed similar cell surface physicochemical properties under low and high ionic strength except for S. Newport and S. Kentucky at low ionic strength. In addition, all Salmonella strains presented strong adhesion ability at low ionic strength (0,001M) especially for S. Newport and S. Kentuckyserovars. Conclusion: The results presented in this work could contribute to understand and control the microbial adhesion of Salmonella serovars to inert surface depending on environmental conditions.

ABSTRACT

Objetivou-se com este trabalho identificar, quantificar os constituintes, e avaliar a atividade antibacteriana dos óleos essenciais extraídos de rizomas de açafrão (Curcuma longa L.) e gengibre (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) cultivados nas condições de Manaus/AM frente a 14 salmonelas entéricas isoladas de frango resfriado. A extração dos óleos essenciais foi realizada utilizando-se aparelho tipo Clevenger e a composição determinada por Cromatografia Gasosa acoplada a Espectrometria de Massas (CG-MS). A atividade antibacteriana foi realizada com o emprego de técnica de microdiluição em caldo. O óleo essencial de gengibre se mostrou expressivamente mais eficiente do que o óleo de açafrão, tanto em termos de ação bacteriostática (concentração inibitória mínima de 2500 a 5000 µg.mL-1) quanto bactericida (concentração bactericida mínima de 5000 a 10000 µg.mL-1) observando-se variação apenas em duas as amostras em termos de resistência a ação bactericida deste óleo. Assim, o óleo essencial de gengibre, representa uma alternativa para o controle de Salmonella enterica, entretanto, demais estudos abordando o sinergismo com alimentos são indicados.


The objective of this work was to identify, quantify constituents and evaluate the antibacterial activity of essential oils from rhizomes of turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) and ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) grown under conditions of Manaus/AM front of enteric salmonella isolated from chilled poultry. The extraction of essential oils was performed using the Clevenger type apparatus and composition determined by Gas Chromatography coupled to Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS). The antibacterial activity was performed with the use of microdilution broth. The essential oil of ginger proved significantly more efficient than tumeric oil, both in terms of bacteriostatic action (minimum inhibitory concentration 2500-5000 mg µg mL-1) and bactericidal (minimum bactericidal concentration 5000-10000 mg µg mL-1) observing changes in only two samples in terms of resistance to bactericidal activity of this oil. Thus, the essential oil of ginger, is an alternative for the control of Salmonella enterica, however, other studies addressing the synergism with food are indicated.
