Plasmid profiles of bacteriocin-producingLactobacillus isolates from African fermented foods


Fourteen of 200Lactobacillus isolates from African fermented foods,viz. ‘wara’, ‘kenkey’, ‘ugba’, ‘ogi’, ‘kunuzarki’, ‘fufu’ and ‘iru’ were found to produce bacteriocins againstL. plantarum and only three bacteriocinogenic isolates inhibited some of the food pathogens. Plasmid analysis of the 14 bacteriocin-producing lactobacilli showed that only 5 isolates… (More)
