Interactions between microbial cells and milk proteins are important for cell location into dairy matrices. In this study, interactions between two probiotic strains, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1, and milk proteins (micellar casein, native and denatured whey proteins) were studied. The bacterial surface characterization was(More)
Carnobacterium species constitute a genus of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) present in different ecological niches. The aim of this article is to summarize the knowledge about Carnobacterium maltaromaticum species at different microbiological levels such as taxonomy, isolation and identification, ecology, technological aspects and safety in dairy products.(More)
Two purified class IIa carnobacteriocins Cbn BM1 and Cbn B2, from Carnobacterium maltaromaticum CP5, were evaluated for antimicrobial activity against pathogenic, spoilage and lactic acid bacteria. Then, the presence of a synergistic mode of action of these two carnobacteriocins on Listeria sp., Enterococcus sp. and Carnobacterium sp. was investigated. A(More)
An optimization of the production and purification processes of carnobacteriocins Cbn BM1 and Cbn B2 from Carnobacterium maltaromaticum CP5, by heterologous expression in Escherichia coli is described. The genes encoding mature bacteriocin were cloned into an E. coli expression system and expressed as a fusion protein with a thermostable thioredoxin.(More)
Within the lactic acid bacterium genus Carnobacterium, Carnobacterium maltaromaticum is one of the most frequently isolated species from natural environments and food. It potentially plays a major role in food product biopreservation. We report here on the 3.649-Mb chromosome sequence of C. maltaromaticum LMA 28, which was isolated from ripened soft cheese.(More)
Few studies have been published on the effects of two bacteriocins combinations and particularly on combinations of two bacteriocins with different structures produced by the same strain. In this work, the actions of mesenterocin 52A (class IIa) and mesenterocin 52B (class II), produced by Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. mesenteroides FR 52, were studied(More)
This review gives an overview of the importance of interactions occurring in dairy matrices between Lactic Acid Bacteria and milk components. Dairy products are important sources of biological active compounds of particular relevance to human health. These compounds include immunoglobulins, whey proteins and peptides, polar lipids, and lactic acid bacteria(More)
Carnobacteriocin BM1 (Cbn BM1) is a class IIa bacteriocin produced by Carnobacterium maltaromaticum CP5 isolated from a French mold ripened cheese. Numerous studies highlight variations in numerous parameters, such as bacterial membrane composition and potential, according to physiological changes. In this work, the mechanism of action of an oxidized form(More)
In order to contribute to the preservation of the Lebanese dairy heritage, the aim of this study was to characterize the Darfiyeh cheese, a traditional variety made from raw goat's milk and ripened in goat's skin. Three independent batches of Darfiyeh production were analyzed after 20, 40 and 60 days of ripening. Mesophilic lactobacilli, thermophilic(More)
AIMS Class IIa bacteriocins are small antimicrobial peptides synthesized by lactic acid bacteria. The proposed mechanisms of action for class IIa bacteriocins suggest that the physicochemical properties of the target bacterial surface govern the bacteriocin antimicrobial activity. The aim of this study is to decipher the relationship between both(More)
