AIMS The aim of this work was to demonstrate that strains of Lactobacillus may be able to produce putrescine and agmatine from one of the major amino acids present in fruit juices and wine, arginine, and from amino acid-derived ornithine. METHODS AND RESULTS Biogenic amines were determined by HPLC. Their production in the culture medium was similar under both microaerophilic and anaerobic conditions. The presence of Mn2+ had a minimal influence on the results, whereas the addition of… CONTINUE READING
