The pln locus responsible for bacteriocin biosynthesis in Lactobacillus plantarum C11 was first unraveled about 15 years ago and since then different strains of L. plantarum (NC8, WCFS1, J23 and J51) have been found to harbor mosaic pln loci in their genomes. Each locus is of 18-19kb and contains 22-25 genes organized into 5-6 operons. Together these strains produce four different class IIb two-peptide bacteriocins, plantaricins EF, JK, NC8 and J51 and a pheromone peptide plantaricin A with… CONTINUE READING
