HYDROLYSIS OF MAJOR DAIRY PROTEINS BY LACTIC ACID BACTERIA FROM BULGARIAN YOGURTS
To obtain a maximal hydrolysis of the dairy proteins seconded by appearance of antimicrobial peptides, a combination of strains with different beneficial properties to be used as starters was proposed.
Leuconostoc mesenteroides NRRL B-1149 as probiotic and its dextran with anticancer properties
Leuconostoc mesenteroides NRRL B-1149 displayed in vitro cell surface traits in terms of hydrophobicity, autoaggregation property and cell adhesive capacity on HeLa, murine macrophage and HT29 cell lines, which revealed its capability to adhere and colonize the intestine.
