Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 subtype A strains circulating among the majority of HIVinfected individuals in the former Soviet Union (FSU) countries demonstrate low genetic diversity. The consensus sequence of the FSU region-specific isolate has been used for the candidate DNA vaccine development. We constructed recombinant plasmids with four viral(More)
In order to select bacteriocin producing strains the screening of microorganisms from clinical material was perfomed. The delayed antagonism method was used. 154 strains were screened, 93 (60%) cultures produced antagonistic substances. Micrococcus luteus NCTC, 2665, Candida albicans ATCC 885-653, Escherichihia coli 168/59, Pseudomonas aeruginosa 27/99,(More)
Bacteriocins--bacterial proteins or peptides--are envisaged as candidates for the next generation of effective antimicrobials. Analysis of characteristics of natural and genetically engineered bacteriocins with regard to the molecular basis of their production and activity has been performed. Most bacteriocins have narrow spectrum of the inhibitory(More)
In this review information on the cultivation of bacteriocin-producing microorganisms belonging to different taxonomic groups are presented. The data on the influence of the most important biotechnological parameters (nutrient medium, temperature, pH, phase of growth, etc.) on the synthesis of bacteriocins are given.
