AIMS To evaluate the probiotic properties of strains isolated from boza, a traditional beverage produced from cereals. METHODS AND RESULTS The strains survived low pH conditions (pH 3.0), grew well at pH 9.0 and were not inhibited by the presence of 0.3% (w/v) oxbile. Cytotoxicity levels of the bacteriocins, expressed as CC(50), ranged from 38 to 3776 microg ml(-1). Bacteriocin bacST284BZ revealed high activity (EC(50) = 735 microg ml(-1)) against herpes simplex virus type 1. Growth of… CONTINUE READING
