Thermal inactivation of Listeria monocytogenes in the Shaka agitated reciprocal retort: Influence of food matrix rheology and fat content KU Leuven
The effect of food matrix rheology and fat content on thermal inactivation of Listeria monocytogenes in the Shaka agitated retort (final retort temperatures of 59, 64, and 69°C) was investigated using four fish-based artificial food model systems: low-viscosity liquid (liquid), high-viscosity liquid (xanthan), and emulsions containing 10% and 20% fat (emulsion 10% and emulsion 20%). Model system rheology, quantified by the consistency index K ...

Novel flavonol-3-O-methylethers from Zanthoxylum pistaciifolium Griseb. (Rutaceae) University of Antwerp
Zanthoxylum pistaciifolium Griseb. is a tree endemic to Cuba, occasionally used in herbal medicine. Previously, the antitrypanosomal activity of a n-hexane–2-butanone extract of Z. pistaciifolium leaves and of its constituent skimmianine were published. In the current study a more thorough examination of the respective extract is performed, which led to the isolation and identification of three flavonoids, more specifically, the ...
Identification and Characterization of a Peptide from the Stony Coral Heliofungia actiniformis KU Leuven
Marine organisms produce a diverse range of toxins and bioactive peptides to support predation, competition, and defense. The peptide repertoires of stony corals (order Scleractinia) remain relatively understudied despite the presence of tentacles used for predation and defense that are likely to contain a range of bioactive compounds. Here, we show that a tentacle extract from the mushroom coral, Heliofungia actiniformis, contains numerous ...
