The bacteriocin produced by Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis biovar. diacetylactis UL 719 was purified and characterized. Two peaks exhibiting antimicrobial activity were obtained after purification. Primary structure of the peptide of major peak 2 was identical to that of nisin Z when determined by Edman degradation and confirmed by DNA sequence analysis. The molecular mass as determined by mass spectrometry was 3346·39 ± 0·40 Da for peak 1 and 3330·39 ± 0·27 Da for peak 2, which suggests that… Expand
Cloning of nis gene and Nisin purification from Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis Fc2
TLDR
It was established that the nis Z gene for nisin Z production is widely distributed and inhibits the growth of Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus and Bacillus subtilis. Expand

TLDR
Inhibitory spectrum of this bacteriocin showed a wide range of activity against similar bacterial strains, food-spoilage and food-borne pathogens in food products. Expand
The ability of Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis bv. diacetylactis strains in producing nisin
Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis bv. diacetylactis is a relevant microorganism for the dairy industry because of its role in the production of aromatic compounds. Despite this technological property,Expand
Isolation of lactococcus lactis strains producing inhibitory activity against listeria
TLDR
Fifty‐one bacteriocin‐producing bacteria (Bac+) were isolated from 35 raw milk cheeses by the deferred antagonism method using Listeria strains as indicator organisms, showing good capacity for milk acidification decreasing the pH of milk from 6.5 to 4.3. Expand
Milk fermentation by functional mixed culture producing nisin Z and exopolysaccharides in a fresh cheese model
TLDR
The data showed that this strain combination, with nisin-producing and sensitive strains, can be used in mixed cultures for manufacture of fresh cheese with improved functional properties. Expand
Enhancement of functional characteristics of mixed lactic culture producing nisin z and exopolysaccharides during continuous prefermentation of milk with immobilized cells.
TLDR
It is shown that continuous milk prefermentation with immobilized cells can stimulate the acidification activity of low-acidifying strains and produce fermented milks with improved and controlled functional properties. Expand
A Simple Method for the Purification of Nisin
TLDR
A simple purification method, based on a salting-out approach, which can produce a powder containing ∼33% nisin from a nisin-producing culture in a whey permeate-based medium, and can enrich a commonly used commercial nisin preparation over 30-fold to a purity of ∼58%. Expand
Biochemical and Genetic Evidence of Enterocin P Production by Two Enterococcus faecium-Like Strains Isolated from Fermented Sausages
TLDR
Metabolic and genetic features of the two Enterococcus faecium-like strains suggest that they are slightly different, they may produce more than one bacteriocin, and both produce enterocin P. Expand

A bacteriocin produced by a strain of Pediococcus acidilactici was successfully purified sequentially by acid extraction and reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and its isolation in pure form for sequencing was confirmed by capillary electrophoresis. Expand
Characterization of leucocin A-UAL 187 and cloning of the bacteriocin gene from Leuconostoc gelidum.

No phenotypic expression of the bacteriocin was evident in several lactic acid bacteria that were electrotransformed with pNZ19 containing the 2.9-kb cloned fragment of the leucocin A plasmid. Expand
Bacteriolytic activity caused by the presence of a novel lactococcal plasmid encoding lactococcins A, B, and M
TLDR
The bacteriolytic effect exhibited by DPC938 and DPC3286 on sensitive cultures is most probably due to the concerted action of all three bacteriocins, and they have a potential application in the dairy industry as accelerator of starter lysis and hence accelerators of cheese ripening. Expand
Bacteriocin-Producing Strain of Lactococcus lactis subsp. diacitilactis S50

Analysis of the genetic determinant for production of the peptide antibiotic nisin.
TLDR
Gene probe experiments indicated that the nisin/sucrose gene block was located in the chromosome and the copy of IS904 identified adjacent to the precursor nisin gene lies at, or very close to, one end of this transmissible DNA segment and may play a role in mediating its transfer between strains.
