The genotypic and phenotypic diversity among isolates of the Lactobacillus curvatus/Lactobacillus graminis/Lactobacillus sakei group was evaluated by comparing RAPD data and results of biochemical tests, such as hydrolysis of arginine, D-lactate production, melibiose and xylose fermentation, and the presence of haem-dependent catalase. Analyses were applied to five type strains and to a collection of 165 isolates previously assigned to L. sakei or L. curvatus. Phenotypic and RAPD data were… CONTINUE READING
