antiseptic drug has been produced in this research by using lactobacillus, and it has been stabilized on the produced nanofibers at the same time with the beginning of electrospinning process.
Certain LAB strains can be used as probiotics for animals, not only because of the production of lactic acid, but other compounds, such as bacteriocins
-like substances (BLS) (Todorov et al.
These molecules are extraordinarily potent, with a single bacteriocin
being sufficient to kill a bacterium.
Still, Korean researchers have found that bacteriocin
KU24, which was produced by L.
Samples of crude bacteriocin
were used for these tests.
Antimicrobial activity and occurrence of bacteriocin
structural genes in Enterococcus spp.
10) Based on sequence homology, it is thought that Usp is a nuclease-type bacteriocin
and OrfU proteins are immunity proteins for Usp.
Selected Efs and Efm isolates were evaluatedfor the expression of three virulencefactors: gelatinase, cytolysin (hemolysin), and bacteriocin
acts against the pathogenic Listeria monocytogenes, this starter culture is especially useful for improving product safety.
A big advantage of the R-type bacteriocin
technology for food applications is its specificity, said James Knighton, president and director of AvidBiotics.
Mechanistic properties of the two-component bacteriocin
production is believed to confer producing strains with a competitive advantage within complex microbial environments as a consequence of their associated antimicrobial activity.
