Characterization of Anti-Listeria monocytogenes Bacteriocins from Enterococcus faecalis, Enterococcus faecium, and Lactococcus lactis Strains Isolated from Raïb, a Moroccan Traditional Fermented Milk


Seventy-four samples of raïb, a Moroccan traditional fermented milk, were screened for their anti-Listeria monocytogenes activity. Nine lactic acid bacteria with antilisterial activity were isolated and identified as Lactococcus lactis[4], Enterococcus faecium[4], and E. faecalis[1]. Antibacterial spectra, determined against 45 target strains, led to the… (More)
