In this study, we isolated and characterized a lytic Lactococcus lactis bacteriophage from the sera of a failed fermentation. The phage was isolated and cultured in L. lactis subsp. cremoris in M17 medium. The isolated bacteriophage was characterized by multiplex PCR, pulsed-field electrophoresis, DNA restriction digestion, analysis of the N-terminal(More)
