AIMS To establish a new system to detect and identify bacteriocins in the early stage of screening for novel bacteriocins. METHODS AND RESULTS Liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) was employed for development of a new system for rapid detection and identification of bacteriocins. The system detected and identified bacteriocins such as nisin and lacticin 481 from 25 microl of culture supernatants of their producing strains by accurate mass determination coupled with simultaneous… CONTINUE READING
