Thirty-one Listeria strains were tested for sensitivity to four class IIa bacteriocins, namely, enterocin A, mesentericin Y105, divercin V41, and pediocin AcH, and to nisin A. Class IIa bacteriocins displayed surprisingly similar antimicrobial patterns ranging from highly susceptible to fully resistant strains, whereas nisin A showed a different pattern in which all Listeria strains were inhibited. Particularly, it was observed that the strain Listeria monocytogenes V7 could not be inhibited by… CONTINUE READING
