Food scientists create national atlas for deadly listeria

Among the deadliest of foodborne pathogens, Listeria monocytogenes soon may become easier to track down in food recalls and other investigations, thanks to a new genomic and geological mapping tool created by Cornell food ...

Ion and lipid transporters specialize for their niche

Cell viability requires that a variety of functions at the cell membrane are maintained properly. P-type ATPases translocate substrates across the membrane, and they have evolved into different types taking care of specific ...

Researchers uncover hypervirulent listeria clonal groups

(Phys.org)—A large team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in France has conducted a two-pronged study of the bacteria that causes listeriosis and in so doing has identified strains that are more virulent ...

Five new Listeria species found; may improve tests

(Phys.org) —Cornell researchers have discovered five new species of a group of bacteria called Listeria – including one named for Cornell – that provide new insights that could lead to better ways to detect soil bacteria ...

New species of the listeria genus discovered and baptised

It is estimated that only 1% of bacteria are pathogenic for humans or animals. Among them, the bacterial genus Listeria has been widely studied as it contains two species, Listeria monocytogenes and Listeria ivanovii, which ...
