  • We report here that both ultrahigh hydrostatic pressure (UHP) and electroporation (EP) induced sublethal injury to bacterial cells surviving the treatments. The injured cells of both gram-positive and -negative bacteria became sensitive to the bacteriocins pediocin AcH and nisin. Bacteriocins in combination with either UHP or EP have greater antibacterial effectiveness than UHP or EP alone.
