Isolation of a Lactobacillus salivarius Strain and Purification of Its Bacteriocin, Which Is Inhibitory to Campylobacter jejuni in the Chicken Gastrointestinal System
Bacteriocin from L. salivarius NRRL B-30514 appears potentially very useful to reduce C. jejuni in poultry prior to processing, and had sequence similarity, even in the C-terminal region, to acidocin A, which was previously identified fromL. Expand
Isolation and Purification of Enterocin E-760 with Broad Antimicrobial Activity against Gram-Positive and Gram-Negative Bacteria
The proteinaceous nature of purified enterocin E-760 was demonstrated upon treatment with various proteolytic enzymes, and the antimicrobial peptide was found to be sensitive to beta-chymotrypsin, proteinase K, and papain, while it was resistant to lysozyme and lipase. Expand
Diverse antimicrobial killing by Enterococcus faecium E 50-52 bacteriocin.
The wide range of antibacterial activity of bacteriocin E 50-52 against pathogens provides a promising alternative to antibiotics. Expand
Paenibacillus polymyxa purified bacteriocin to control Campylobacter jejuni in chickens.
Feeding bacteriocins before poultry slaughter appears to provide control of C. jejuni to effectively reduce human exposure, and this advance is directed toward on-farm control of pathogens, as opposed to the currently used chemical disinfection of contaminated carcasses. Expand
Isolation of Bacillus circulans and Paenibacillus polymyxa strains inhibitory to Campylobacter jejuni and characterization of associated bacteriocins.
Anti-Campylobacter activity among 365 Bacillus and Paenibacillus isolates from poultry production environments was evaluated and antagonists and the corresponding bacteriocins may be useful in the control of Campylobacteria infection in poultry. Expand
Isolation of Lactobacillus salivarius 1077 (NRRL B-50053) and Characterization of Its Bacteriocin, Including the Antimicrobial Activity Spectrum
The therapeutic benefit of bacteriocin L-1077 was demonstrated in market-age broiler chickens colonized with both C. jejuni and Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis and appears to hold promise in controlling C.Jejuni/S.Enteritidis among commercial broiler birds. Expand
Distribution and characterization of Campylobacter spp. from Russian poultry.
The distribution of Campylobacter spp. on 13 poultry farms (broiler chicken, quail, pheasant, peacock, and turkey) from eight regions (Vladimir, Vologda, Voronezh, Kaluga, Liptsk, Moscow, Orenburg,Expand
Bacteriocins reduce Campylobacter jejuni colonization while bacteria producing bacteriocins are ineffective
Treatments with viable probiotic bacterial cultures were ineffective in reducing C. jejun i in chickens, while bacteriocin treatment from these corresponding bacteria substantially reduced C.Jejuni colonization in the live birds. Expand
Bacteriocins reduce Campylobacter colonization and alter gut morphology in turkey poults.
The dynamic reduction in crypt depth and goblet cell density in turkeys dosed with bacteriocin may provide clues to how bacteriOCins inhibit enteric Campylobacter. Expand
Inactivating Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Other Pathogens by Use of Bacteriocins OR-7 and E 50-52
Worldwide, dramatic numbers of reports document the increasing frequency of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections. Other clinically significant human pathogens areExpand
