Sakacin P is a small, heat-stable, ribosomally synthesized peptide produced by certain strains of Lactobacillus sake. It inhibits the growth of several Gram-positive bacteria, including Listeria monocytogenes. A 7.6 kb chromosomal DNA fragment from Lb. sake Lb674 encompassing all genes responsible for sakacin P production and immunity was sequenced and… CONTINUE READING
