AIMS The aim of this study was to determine the proteolytic activities of Staphylococcus xylosus strains on sarcoplasmic and myofibrillar proteins in order to evaluate the suitability of selected strains as starter cultures in the processing of a dry fermented pork sausage. METHODS AND RESULTS The proteolytic activity of 27 strains of Staphylococcus xylosus on sarcoplasmic and myofibrillar proteins was determined by agar plate method, o-phtaldialdehyde (OPA) spectrophotometric assay and… CONTINUE READING
