- ... AIMS: The present study was conducted to assess the effect of three different fermentation systems on fermentation of enset into kocho. METHODS AND RESULTS: Nine enset plants were processed, mixed and fermented in either a pit, a bamboo basket or a sauerkraut jar. Samples were taken on days 1, 7, 15, 31, 60 and 90. Moisture content and pH generally decreased and titratable acidity increased during ...

- ... AIMS: We hypothesized and confirmed that tannic acid (TA) reverses carbapenem resistance by inhibiting carbapenemases in class A and B carbapenemase‐producing Enterobacteriaceae. METHODS AND RESULTS: Minimum inhibitory concentrations of carbapenems in the presence and absence of TA and other efflux pump inhibitors, TA‐carbapenemases inhibition assays and computational studies showed that TA had th ...
