Lactic acid bacteria were examined for their ability to produce quinone compounds, which may include dietary sources of menaquinones. Isoprenyl quinones in bacterial cells grown in a synthetic medium were extracted and analyzed by thin layer chromatography. Lactococcus lactis ssp. cremoris (three strains), Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis (two strains), and Leuconostoc lactis were selected as high producers of quinone that synthesized more than 230 nmol of quinones/g of dried cells. The quinones… CONTINUE READING
