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)
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)
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)
The PCR technique using Cb1-Cb2R and species-specific primers was applied to various French soft flowered or washed rind cheeses to identify Carnobacterium species. Thirty cheeses made from cow's, ewe's, or goat's milk (raw or pasteurized), of which 20 were Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, were analyzed in the autumn and spring. The results revealed that,(More)
Carnobacterium maltaromaticum is a lactic acid bacterium isolated from soft cheese. The objective of this work was to study its potential positive impact when used in cheese technology. Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of six strains of C. maltaromaticum showed that they belong to different phylogenetic groups. Although these strains lacked the(More)
A selective medium was proposed for isolating the species Carnobacterium maltaromaticum from cheeses. This medium, named CM, was elaborated using combinations of three antibiotics (gentamicin, nalidixic acid, vancomycin) and alkaline pH value (8.8). An experimental design (Doehlert matrix) was drawn up to optimize the experimental conditions of the(More)
The acidifying activity of Carnobacterium maltaromaticum LMA28, a strain isolated from French soft cheese, was studied in trypticase soy broth with yeast extract (TSB-YE) medium and in milk. In TSB-YE supplemented with lactose, glucose, or galactose, lactose and glucose were metabolized with a maximum growth rate of 0.32 h(-1) and galactose was not(More)
An identification method by PCR, specific to the Carnobacterium genus, was optimised by testing it on 28 bacterial strains. Primers from the literature were tested to differentiate Carnobacterium strains present among various bacterial species. The DNA of Carnobacterium species (C. alterfunditum, C. divergens, C. funditum, C. gallinarum, C. inhibens, C.(More)
