Previous studies have reported that the mechanism of bactericidal action of the plant oil aromatics, eugenol, carvacrol and cinnamaldehyde involves inhibition of adenosine triphosphate generation and membrane disruption. In this study the capacity of the aromatics to inhibit the membrane bound ATPase activity of Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes was investigated by experiments on isolated membranes. Inhibition of the ATPase activity of E. coli membranes was observed with 5 mM or 10 mM… CONTINUE READING
