Development of an Effective Two-Step Enrichment Process to Enhance Bax System Detection of Healthy and Injured Salmonella Enteritidis in Liquid Whole Egg and Egg Yolk.

Shishi Huang, Tay Boon Hui, Hyun-Gyun Yuk, Qianwang Zheng,

ABSTRACT:The BAX system for pathogen detection has been highly accurate in a variety of food products. However, false-negative results have been reported for the detection of pathogens in liquid egg products because of failed pathogen resuscitation and the existence of inhibitory components. In this study, a short-time enrichment step was ... Read more >>

Recurrent gene loss correlates with the evolution of stomach phenotypes in gnathostome history.

L Filipe C Castro, Odete Gonçalves, Sylvie Mazan, Boon-Hui Tay, Byrappa Venkatesh, Jonathan M Wilson,

The stomach, a hallmark of gnathostome evolution, represents a unique anatomical innovation characterized by the presence of acid- and pepsin-secreting glands. However, the occurrence of these glands in gnathostome species is not universal; in the nineteenth century the French zoologist Cuvier first noted that some teleosts lacked a stomach. Strikingly, ...

Wayne I L Davies, Boon-Hui Tay, Lei Zheng, Janine A Danks, Sydney Brenner, Russell G Foster, Shaun P Collin, Mark W Hankins, Byrappa Venkatesh, David M Hunt,

Non-visual photoreception in mammals is primarily mediated by two splice variants that derive from a single melanopsin (OPN4M) gene, whose expression is restricted to a subset of retinal ganglion cells. Physiologically, this sensory system regulates the photoentrainment of many biological rhythms, such as sleep via the melatonin endocrine system and ... Read more >>
