often exhibit a narrow killing spectrum and inhibit only bacteria that are closely related to those from which they have been formed.
exhibited inhibitory action within a wide pH range from 2 to 10, retaining full activity in the 5-9 pH range (Table 5).
Detection of genes encoding virulence factors and bacteriocins
in fecal enterococci of poultry in Portugal.
Biopreservation using bacteriocins
-producing LAB cultures may offer an additional hurdle to control the growth of Gram positive food borne pathogens, such as L.
Escherichia coli's uropathogenic-specific protein: a bacteriocin
6% of Efs strains produced one or more bacteriocins
while 41% of Efm strains did so.
A big advantage of the R-type bacteriocin
technology for food applications is its specificity, said James Knighton, president and director of AvidBiotics.
Antagonistic activity of Lactobacillus plantarum C11: Two new two- peptide bacteriocins
, plantaricins EF and JK, and the induction factor plantaricin A.
Scientists at the University of Alberta purified three bacteriocins
from lactic acid bacteria isolated from mayonnaise-based finished products, and the raw materials used in the production of the finished products.
Other novel milk preservation technologies: ultrasound, irradiation, microwave, radio frequency, ohmic heating, ultraviolet light and bacteriocins
They cover genetics and energy metabolism, stress response, bacteriocins
from lactic acid bacteria, lactic acid for bioplastics, and health benefits.
The low counts observed in Bongo may be attributed to the low pH and other antimicrobial compounds such as bacteriocins
produced by lactic acid bacteria.
