Effect of plant alkaloids on the sporulation of a food-borne pathogen


, : Effect of plant alkaloids on the sporulation of a food-borne pathogen. Acta Horticulturae ( 426): 287-295

Caffeine, theophylline and theobromine are structurally related plant alkaloids which are consumed in large amounts worldwide in the diet. Clostridium perfringens, a foodborne pathogen, exerts its toxic effect on humans when producing a toxin during sporulation in the intestine. Investigations were undertaken to determine the effect these plant alkaloids have on sporulation and subsequent toxin formation.

This effect was not noted during the winter months. Use of a trans...
