Purification and genetic characterization of plantaricin NC8, a novel coculture-inducible two-peptide bacteriocin
from Lactobacillus plantarum NC8.
Further work is needed to isolate the bacteriocins
and their nature, mode of action and potency.
Further research though, should be performed to develop extraction techniques for lactic acid and bacteriocins
and test further their production on the nutrient media.

from lactic acid bacteria: Microorganisms of potential biotechnological importance for the dairy industry.
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.
32] reported, antibacterial activity of bacteriocins
is influenced via the following aspects: bacteriocin
concentration and purification degree, physiological condition of the indicator bacteria (e.
These bacteria produce a variety of antimicrobial proteins collectively called bacteriocins
(Galvez et al.
are bioactive peptide complexes (30-60 amino acids) that on other species have a bacteriocidal effect.
Genetic features of circular bacteriocins
produced by Gram-positive bacteria.
Most of the antimicrobial activity of honey is due to metabolites produced by LAB, such as organics acid and bacteriocins
(Aween et al.
have been retargeted to recognize very specific pathogens," said Riley.
