Pheromone-induced production of antimicrobial peptides in Lactobacillus.


Production of the bacteriocin sakacin P by Lactobacillus sake LTH673 is dependent on a secreted 19-residue peptide pheromone (IP-673). The gene encoding IP-673 (sppIP) was identified and sequenced. SppIP was shown to be co-transcribed with genes encoding a histidine kinase (sppK) and a response regulator (sppR) typical for signal transduction in bacteria… (More)
