Detection of secreted antimicrobial peptides isolated from cell-free culture supernatant of Paenibacillus alvei AN5

An antimicrobial substance produced by the Paenibacillus alvei strain AN5 was detected in fermentation broth. Subsequently, cell-free culture supernatant (CFCS) was obtained by medium centrifugation and filtration, and its antimicrobial activity was tested. This showed a broad inhibitory spectrum against both Gram-positive and -negative bacterial strains… CONTINUE READING
