AIMS To advance the understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying the capacity of bifidobacteria and lactic bacteria to convert linoleic acid (LA) into conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) by the linoleate isomerase (LI). METHODS AND RESULTS The potential LI enzymes of selected Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and Leuconostoc strains were compared at the… CONTINUE READING
