Impact of cyanogen iodide in killing of Escherichia coli by the lactoperoxidase-hydrogen peroxide-(pseudo)halide system.

Abstract

In the presence of hydrogen peroxide, the heme protein lactoperoxidase is able to oxidize thiocyanate and iodide to hypothiocyanite, reactive iodine species, and the inter(pseudo)halogen cyanogen iodide. The killing efficiency of these oxidants and of the lactoperoxidase-H2O2-SCN-/I- system was investigated on the bioluminescent Escherichia coli K12 strain… (More)
