    Bile salt hydrolysis - Genome analysis - Indigenous probiotic - Probiotic genes - Serum resistance
    The human gut microbiome plays a crucial role in human health and efforts need to be done for cultivation and characterisation of bacteria with potential health benefits. Here, we isolated a bacterium from a healthy Indian adult faeces and investigated its potential as probiotic. The cultured bacterial strain 17OM39 was identified as Enterococcus faecium by 16S rRNA gene sequencing. The strain 17OM39 exhibited tolerance to acidic pH, showed antimicrobial activity and displayed strong cell surface traits such as hydrophobicity and autoaggregation capacity. The strain was able to tolerate bile salts and showed bile salt hydrolytic (BSH) activity, exopolysaccharide production and adherence to human HT-29 cell line. Importantly, partial haemolytic activity was detected and the strain was susceptible to the human serum. Genomics investigation of strain 17OM39 revealed the presence of diverse genes encoding for proteolytic enzymes, stress response systems and the ability to produce essential amino acids, vitamins and antimicrobial compound Bacteriocin-A. No virulence factors and plasmids were found in this genome of the strain 17OM39. Collectively, these physiological and genomic features of 17OM39 confirm the potential of this strain as a candidate probiotic.
    Framework for Designing Robust Supply Chains

    Today’s business environment and harsh competitiveness force companies and entire supply chains to increase their efficiency as much as possible. As a consequence, supply chains have become highly sensitive to disruptions and less tolerant to deviations in operations, that is, supply chains have become more vulnerable (see Kleindorfer and Saad, 2005). Vulnerability of supply chains may result in less consistent supply chain performances, and consequently, their competitive power in the market may diminish. In order to maintain stability of supply chain performances, it is necessary to design robust supply chains. Robust supply chains should be able to continue to function well in the event of a disruption as well as in the normal business environment (see Dong, 2006; Tang, 2006; Waters, 2007). Generally, robustness of the supply chain depends on its capability to respond adequately to different kinds of risks of disturbances. Recently, supply chain vulnerability and robustness has become a hot research topic, and as such, it is still in its infancy. With this paper, we aim to contribute to the existing knowledge in these areas.

    Quality and co-ordination in supply chains - the case of pork chains in the Netherlands
    Wognum, P.M. ; Wever, M. - \ 2008
    In: Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Concurrent Enterprising, Lisbon, Portugal, 23 - 25 June, 2008. - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc. - ISBN 9780853582441 - p. 251 - 258.
    To satisfy consumer demands co-ordination between member organisations of a supply chain is necessary. Various co-ordination mechanisms exist, like standardisation of products or processes, quality management systems, chain integrators, or inter-organisational information systems. In this paper we will investigate which type of co-ordination mechanisms are suitable to use in connection with particular quality choices. Our approach is tested for two rather different pork chains in The Netherlands: one large, open, chain, and one small, closed, chain. A research agenda is proposed for investigating similar relationships in other chains in Europe. By relating such relationships to performance cross-border knowledge exchange and learning is made possible. The work is part of the FP6 Integrated Project Q-Porkchains.
