The purpose of this study was to investigate the frequency of production of the bacteriocin propionicin T1 and the protease-activated antimicrobial peptide (PAMP) and their corresponding genes in 64 isolates of classical propionibacteria. This study revealed that these genes are widespread in Propionibacterium jensenii and Propionibacterium thoenii but absent from the remaining species of classical propionibacteria that were studied. The pro-PAMP-encoding gene (pamA) was found in 63% of the P… CONTINUE READING
