One hundred and sixty-five isolates of Leuconostoc spp. were tested for bacteriocin production. Only one strain, Leuc. mesenteroides ssp. mesenteroides FR 52, isolated from a raw milk, produced a bacteriocin which was named Mesenterocin 52. This bacteriocin inhibited other Leuconostoc strains and several strains of Enterococcus and Listeria spp. No activity was found against lactococci and lactobacilli. The antibacterial spectrum differed from that of previously described Leuconostoc… CONTINUE READING
