  • The dependence of intracellular ATP level on the nutrition mode of the acidophilic bacteria Sulfobacillus thermotolerans and Alicyclobacillus tolerans
    Microbiology, 2007

    Abstract:

    The dynamics of the ATP pool in the aerobic spore-forming acidothermophilic mixotrophic bacteria Sulfobacillus thermotolerans Kr1^T and Alicyclobacillus tolerans K1^T were studied in the course of their chemolithoheterotrophic, chemoorganoheterotrophic, and chemolithoautotrophic growth. It was established that, during mixotrophic growth, the maximum ATP concentrations in the cells of S. thermotolerans Kr1 and A. tolerans K1 were 3.8 and 0.6 nmol/mg protein, respectively. The ATP concentrations in sulfobacilli and alicyclobacilli during organotrophic growth were 2.2 and 3.1 nmol/mg protein, respectively. In the cells of the obligately heterotrophic bacterium Alicyclobacillus cycloheptanicus 4006^T, the maximum ATP concentration was several times higher and reached 12.3 nmol/mg protein. During lithotrophic growth, the maximum values of the ATP concentration in the cells of S. thermotolerans Kr1 and A. tolerans K1 were 0.3 and

    Abstract:

    Comparative analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences, DNA–DNA hybrhybridization data and phenotypic properties revealed that ‘Sulfobacillus thermosulfidooxidans subsp. thermotolerans’ strain K1 is not a member of the genus Sulfobacillus. Phylogenetically, strain K1 is closely related to unclassified strains of the genus Alicyclobacillus: the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain K1 is similar to that of Alicyclobacillus sp. AGC-2 (99·6 %), Alicyclobacillus sp. 5C (98·9 %) and Alicyclobacillus sp. CLG (98·6 %) and bacterium GSM (99·1 %). The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values for strain K1 and species of the genus Alicyclobacillus with validly published names were in the range 92·1–94·6 %, and for S. thermosulfidooxidans VKM B-1269T the value was 87·7 %. Sulfobacillus disulfidooxidans SD-11T was also phylogenetically related to strain K1 (92·6 % sequence similarity) and thus belonged to the genus Alicyclobacillus. Chemotaxonomic data, such as the major cell-membrane lipilipid components of strains K1 and SD-11T (ω-alicyclic fatty acids) and the major isoprenoid quinone (menaquinone MK-7) of strain K1, supported the affiliation of strains K1 and SD-11T to the genus Alicyclobacillus. Physiological and molecular biological tests allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strains K1 and SD-11T from the nine Alicyclobacillus species with validly published names. The G+C content of the DNA of strain K1 was 48·7±0·6 mol%; that of strain SD-11T was 53±1 mol%. DNA–DNA reassociation studies showed low relatedness (22 %) between strains K1 and SD-11T, and even lower relatedness (3–5 %) between these strains and Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius subsp. acidocaldarius ATCC 27009T, DSM 446T. DNA reassociation of strains K1 and SD-11T with Alicyclobacillus cycloheptanicus DSM 4006T gave values of 15 and 21, respectively. Based on the phenotypic and phylogenetic characteristics of strains K1 and SD-11T, Alicyclobacillus tolerans sp. nov. (type strain, K1T=VKM B-2304T=DSM 16297T) and Alicyclobacillus disulfidooxidans comb. nov. (type strain, SD-11T=ATCC 51911T=DSM 12064T) are proposed.

  • targeting the vanillic acid decarboxylase gene for Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris quantification and guaiacol assessment in apple juices using real time pcr
    International Journal of Food Microbiology, 2021
    Co-Authors: Zhouli Wang, Yahong Yuan, Tianli Yue, Yanchen Zhang, Zhenpeng Gao, Rui Cai
    Abstract:

    Abstract Alicyclobacillus spp. has recently received much attention due to its implication in the spoilage of pasteurized fruit juices, which is characterized by the formation of guaiacol. Previous researches indicate that not all Alicyclobacillus spp. are able to produce guaiacol. The aim of this study was to identify possible differences in the vanillic acid decarboxylase gene involved in guaiacol biosynthesis and then develop specific detection methods for guaiacol producing Alicyclobacillus. Agarose gel electrophoresis results showed that the partial vdcC gene was present in all the guaiacol producing Alicyclobacillus, but absent in non-guaicaol producing strains apart from A. fastidiosus DSM 17978. On the basis of the vdcC gene sequence, a primer pair specific to A. acidoterrestris was designed; then a SYBR Green I real time PCR was established for the direct quantification of A. acidoterrestris in apple juice, and the detection limit was 2.6 × 101 CFU/mL. The developed real time PCR system was used to detect A. acidoterrestris in 36 artificially contaminated apple juice samples and guaiacol production in the sample was also analyzed by GC–MS. The Gompertz model was employed to describe the relationship between A. acidoterrestris cell concentration and guaiacol content, and the value of R2 was 0.854. This work provides an alternative to conventional methods of guaiacol quantification and A. acidoterrestris detection and could be very useful for the early recognition of A. acidoterrestris contamination in fruit juices.

  • Bacteriocin assisted food functional membrane for simultaneous exclusion and inactivation of Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris in apple juice
    Journal of Membrane Science, 2021
    Co-Authors: Jinye Zhang, Tianli Yue, Wenjing Wang, Jianfei Pei, Jiawei Zhang, Wirote Youravong
    Abstract:

    Abstract Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris is a thermophilic and acidophilic bacilli species which causes a significant decay in quality of apple juice and it cannot be efficiently treated by conventional sterilization procedures in food processing. In order to efficiently remove and inactivate Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris in apple juice, a food functional microfiltration membrane was fabricated by a multi-stage modification including polydopamine coating and nisin grafting. Attenuated total reflectancefourier transform infrared spectrometer and scanning electron microscopy images confirmed the success of immobilizing polydopamine and nisin microspheres onto the polyvinylidene difluoride membrane surface. In comparison with pristine polyvinylidene difluoride membrane, the modified membrane showed promoted performance in terms of hydrophilicity, water flux and the rejection of Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris. A simultaneous exclusion and inactivation of Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris in apple juice was achieved by modified microfiltration membrane. The modified membrane also exhibited reliable stability under different membrane cleaning procedures. The present study provides an option for the development of tailored food functional membrane for specific applications in food processing.

  • synthesis of multifunctional fluorescent magnetic nanoparticles for the detection of Alicyclobacillus spp in apple juice
    Food Research International, 2018
    Co-Authors: Zhouli Wang, Yahong Yuan, Rui Cai, Yuejuan Zhao, Tianli Yue
    Abstract:

    Abstract An approach based on multifunctional fluorescent magnetic nanoparticles was proposed for the enrichment and identification of Alicyclobacillus spp. in apple juice simultaneously. The prepared Fe3O4 magnetic particles (MNPs) were modified by the sol-gel process and a silica shell was formed to improve the reactivity, and then the obtained MNPs@SiO2-SH nanoparticles were conjugated with Thioglycolic acid functionalized CdTe/CdS QDs via thiols chemistry. The characteristic evaluation results indicated that the MNPs-QD nanocomposites exhibited good magnetic properties and optical characterization. The polyclonal anti-Alicyclobacillus IgG antibody was immobilized onto the surface of MNPs-QD materials via esterification reactions. The maximum antibody immobilization capacity was 119.62 μg/mg and the adsorption reaction could be accomplished in 60 min. The adsorption process could be represented by Langmuir model and pseudo-second order kinetics equation, respectively. Based on the high immunocapture efficiency and sensitive fluorescence characteristics, the obtained MNPs-QDs-antibody conjugates could be applied to recognize the contamination of Alicyclobacillus spp. and a quantitative analysis method was established for target cells detection. The minimum quantitative limit was 104 CFU (colony forming unit)/mL and the testing process could be completed in 90 min. The results indicated that the MNPs-QDs-antibody conjugates can be successfully applied for immunocapture and detection of Alicyclobacillus spp. in apple juice. That is to say, the developed MNPs-QDs-antibody conjugates have exhibit more attractive and great potential for the immunocapture and recognition of target bacteria, fully demonstrated a new method for enrichment and rapid detection of Alicyclobacillus spp. in fruit juices.
