2004) reported that the presence of specific bacteria could act as an environmental signal to switch on bacteriocin
production in L.
However nature, functions, structures and mode of action of such bacteriocin
need to be explored.
Lactobacilli belong to the group of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB), that have several distinguished abilities such as production of lactic acid, enzymes such as a-Galactosidase organic acids, free fatty acids, ammonia, reuterin, diacetyl, hydrogen peroxide and bacteriocin
, which have the capacity to inhibit the growth of food spoilage and pathogenic organisms.
Dal Bello B, Cocolin L, Zeppa G, Field D, Cotter PD, Hill C (2012) Technological characterization of bacteriocin
producing Lactococcus lactis strains employed to control Listeria monocytogenes in Cottage cheese.
Persistence of the oral probiotic Streptococcus salivarius M18 is dose dependent and megaplasmid transfer can augment their bacteriocin
production and adhesion characteristics.
Albusin B, a class III bacteriocin
produced by Ruminococcus albus, is a 32-kDa protein with relatively hydrophilic content that has moderate specificity against some ruminal bacterial species.
activity was measured according to Parente et al.
It produces bacteriocin
, designated as natural or food grade protein andis widely acceptable for food preservations (Iyer et al.
Possibility of usage of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) as substrates of other chemical preservatives of food and production of bacteriocin
which is of great economic interest had been reported earlier (Admas, 1999).
Amino acid and nucleotide sequence, adjacent genes, and heterologous expression of hiracin JM79, a sec-dependent bacteriocin
produced by Enterococcus hirae DCH5, isolated from Mallard ducks (Anasplatyrhynchos).
Purification and characterization of a Bacteriocin
produced by Lactobacillus lactis isolated from marine environment.
cibaria secretes a significant quantity of hydrogen peroxide as well as bacteriocin
that acts against gram positive bacteria.
