OBJECTIVES Bacteriocins (Bcn) are natural peptides that are secreted by several taxonomically distant bacteria and exert bactericidal activity against other bacterial species. Their capacity to inhibit growth of virulent Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv was evaluated in this study. METHODS Five different Bcn were isolated and purified from bacterial culture supernatants, their amino acid sequence was determined, and activity against mycobacteria assessed in three different models: in vitro… CONTINUE READING
