Lactobacillus plantarum C11 produces plantaricin E/F (PlnE/F) and plantaricin J/K (PlnJ/K), two bacteriocins whose activity depends on the complementary action of two peptides (PlnE and PlnF; PlnJ and PlnK). Three of the individual Pln peptides possess some antimicrobial activity, but the highest bacteriocin activity is obtained by combining complementary peptides in about a one-to-one ratio. Circular dichroism was used to study the structure of the Pln peptides under various conditions. All… CONTINUE READING
