Enterocin A produced by Enterococcus faecium EFM01 displayed a narrow antimicrobial spectrum, mainly directed against Listeria spp. In particular, the bacteriocin was extremely active against 13 Listeria monocytogenes strains. This high specificity of action of enterocin A for Listeria spp. relative to lactic acid bacteria, together with its broad range of activity from pH 4.0 to pH 9.0, are factors which may be of great interest with respect to the potential antilisterial use of this… CONTINUE READING
