Phenotypic and molecular characterization of Lactococcus lactis from milk and plants.

Abstract

AIMS The aim of this study was to obtain new Lactococcus lactis strains from nondairy materials for use as milk fermentation starters. The genetic and phenotypic traits of the obtained strains were characterized and compared with those of L. lactis strains derived from milk. It was confirmed that the plant-derived bacteria could be used as milk fermentation… (More)
