Mesentericin Y105, a bacteriocin produced by a Leuconostoc mesenteroides strain, dissipates the plasma membrane potential of Listeria monocytogenes and inhibits the transport of leucine and glutamic acid. It also induces an efflux of preaccumulated amino acids from cells. In addition, the bacteriocin uncouples mitochondria by increasing state 4 respiration and decreasing state 3 respiration. The bacteriocin inhibits ATP synthase and adenine nucleotide translocase of the organelle while the… CONTINUE READING
