Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


Listeria monocytogenes is an important food-borne pathogen that may cause severe infections in humans. Many outbreaks caused by this organism have been associated with ready-to-eat foods wich may have undergone some form of minimal processing, or have been contaminated after processing. Ready-to-eat foods rely heavily on refrigerations as preservation technique. However, certain pathogens, like L. monocytogenes, are able to proliferate at refrigeration temperatures. Insight into the mechanisms allowing low-temperature growth is essential to understand and possibly control growth at low temperature
