Well characterized probiotic LAB genera include Lactobacillus, Leuconostoc
, Enterococcus, Streptococcus, Pediococcus, and Lactococcus (Merenstein and Salminen, 2017; Roskar et al., 2017).
diacetylactis strain--designated hereafter as F2.3--and one Leuconostoc
mesentero'ides strain--named P35--were used.
Synthesizing dextran via biosynthesis can be done by using lactic acid bacteria (LAB) such as Leuconostoc
, Lactobacillus, Streptococcus, and Weissella [1, 3, 4].
Examples of organism that are heterofermentative are Leuconostoc
, Weissella, and Lactobacillus brevis .
However, the increasing demand for healthy foods has conducted LAB research towards the study of their functional properties in foods, revealing that many LAB species, such us Lactobacillus spp., Lactococcus spp., Leuconostoc
spp., Streptococcus spp., Pediococcus spp., Oenococcus spp., or Carnobacterium spp., exhibit antimicrobial activity [4-7].
 have demonstrated that strong acid producing lactic acid bacteria belong to genera Pediococcus, Lactobacillus, Streptococcus, Leuconostoc
, and Bacillus species.
The same findings were also reported by the other workers  in case of mutagenic strain of Leuconostoc
Effect of Lactobacillus buchneri, Lactobacillus fermentum, Leuconostoc
mesenteroides inoculants, or a chemical additive on the fermentation, aerobic stability, and nutritive value of crimped wheat grains.
Controlled gene expression systems for lactic acid bacteria: transferable nisin-inducible expression cassettes for Lactococcus, Leuconostoc
, and Lactobacillus spp.
Herein we report the successful treatment of catheter related blood stream infections due to Leuconostoc
mesenteroides with antibiotic lock therapy in addition to systemic treatment.
