AIMS This study aimed to characterize new isolates of human bifidobacteria, evaluate some of their probiotic potential and to screen these isolates for their effectiveness at inhibiting Listeria monocytogenes in vitro. METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty-four Bifidobacterium isolates from infant faeces were identified by fructose-6-phosphate phosphoketolase and PCR. Six isolates, coded RBL67, RBL68, RBL69, RBL70, RBL85 and RBL86, showed higher antagonistic activity against L. monocytogenes… CONTINUE READING
