- ... Listeria monocytogenes can survive and grow in a variety of environments, including refrigeration, making it difficult to control and highlighting the importance of optimizing control strategies against this pathogen. Listeria phages are attractive biocontrol agents because phages bind to specific wall teichoic acids (WTA) on the bacterial cell wall, inhibiting pathogens without disrupting the nor ...
