Efficient insertional mutagenesis in lactococci and other gram-positive bacteria.
In lactococci, the study of chromosomal genes and their regulation is limited by the lack of an efficient transposon mutagenesis system. We associated the insertion sequence ISS1 with theExpand

The Continuing Story of Class IIa Bacteriocins
SUMMARY Many bacteria produce antimicrobial peptides, which are also referred to as peptide bacteriocins. The class IIa bacteriocins, often designated pediocin-like bacteriocins, constitute the mostExpand

Carnobacterium: positive and negative effects in the environment and in foods
The genus Carnobacterium contains nine species, but only C. divergens and C. maltaromaticum are frequently isolated from natural environments and foods. They are tolerant to freezing/thawing and highExpand

Medium for Screening Leuconostoc oenos Strains Defective in Malolactic Fermentation.
A new sensitive medium was developed to screen and isolate mutagenic Leuconostoc oenos strains defective in malolactic fermentation. The essential components of the medium included fructose (22 mM),Expand

Identification of the Enterococcus faecalis Tyrosine Decarboxylase Operon Involved in Tyramine Production
ABSTRACT Screening of a library of Enterococcus faecalis insertional mutants allowed isolation of a mutant affected in tyramine production. The growth of this mutant was similar to that of theExpand

Origin and ecological selection of core and food-specific bacterial communities associated with meat and seafood spoilage
The microbial spoilage of meat and seafood products with short shelf lives is responsible for a significant amount of food waste. Food spoilage is a very heterogeneous process, involving the growthExpand

Lactobacillus salivarius: bacteriocin and probiotic activity.
Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) antimicrobial peptides typically exhibit antibacterial activity against food-borne pathogens, as well as spoilage bacteria. Therefore, they have attracted the greatestExpand

Mechanism of the Citrate Transporters in Carbohydrate and Citrate Cometabolism in Lactococcus andLeuconostoc Species
ABSTRACT Citrate metabolism in the lactic acid bacterium Leuconostoc mesenteroides generates an electrochemical proton gradient across the membrane by a secondary mechanism (C. Marty-Teysset, C.Expand
