Three derivatives of Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis NCK203, each with a different pair of restriction/ modification (R/M) and abortive infection (Abi) phage defense systems, were constructed and then rotated in repeated cycles of a milk starter culture activity test (SAT). The rotation proceeded successfully through nine successive SATs in the presence of phage and whey containing phage from previous cycles. Lactococcus cultures were challenged with 2 small isometric-headed phages, (phi)31… CONTINUE READING
