Bacillus brevis AF01, isolated from wheat field, has been found to produce proteinaceous antibacterial substance Brevicin AF01. The inhibitory activity could not be related to bacteriophages. It has a narrow spectrum of activity against gram-positive bacterial strains only. Brevicin AF01 revealed bactericidal effect against Staphylococccus aureus FS10. It was also found to be active against several strains of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Its production was started in the early…

An Antimicrobial Metabolite from Bacillus sp.: Significant Activity Against Pathogenic Bacteria Including Multidrug-Resistant Clinical Strains

The cell free modified tryptone soya broth showed significant antimicrobial activity against multidrug-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus, S. epidermidis, Streptococcus pyogenes and Enterococcus faecalis and may prove to be a novel antimicrobial lead molecule.

Screening of Antimicrobial Spectrum of Brevibacillus sp. Isolated from Dairy Environment

Microbes are ubiquitous and very much adaptive and evolve new strategies to survive, resulting in altered food safety hazards, WHO food strategic planning meeting have noticeably have shown their concern on the issue.

Bacteriocin with a broad antimicrobial spectrum, produced by Bacillus sp. Isolated from kimchi

An antimicrobially active bacterium, identified as Bacillus brevis, was isolated from kimchi and characterized as a bacteriocin, because of its proteinaceous nature and low molecular weight, which could potentially be used as a food preservative.

Isolation and partial characterization of Bac201: A plasmid‐associated bacteriocin‐like inhibitory substance from Staphylococcus aureus AB201

Staphylococcus aureus AB201, a clinical isolate from wound pus, produced a bacteriocin‐like inhibitory substance termed as Bac201 that exhibited a broad‐spectrum activity against both gram‐positive as well as gram‐negative bacteria that was bactericidal rather than bacteriolytic.

Characterization of a bacteriocin-like substance produced by Bacillus amyloliquefaciens isolated from the Brazilian Atlantic forest.

A Bacillus strain producing a bacteriocin-like substance was characterized by biochemical profiling and 16S rDNA sequencing. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that the strain has high sequence

Antibacterial activity of cerein 8A, a bacteriocin-like peptide produced by Bacillus cereus.

Results suggest that the mode of action of cerein 8A is to interfere with cell membranes and the cell wall, and to inhibit the growth of Escherichia coli and Salmonella Enteritidis.

A novel bacteriocin-like substance (BLIS) from a pathogenic strain of Vibrio harveyi.

Inter-strain and inter-species inhibition mediated by a bacteriocin-like inhibitory substance (BLIS) from a pathogenic Vibrio harveyi strain VIB 571 was demonstrated against four isolates of the same

Antimicrobial activity of a newly identified bacteriocin of Bacillus cereus

The bacteriocin, here called cerein, was shown to be active specifically against other B. cereus strains and inactive against all other bacterial species tested.

The anticlostridial factor was inhibitory toward various strains of C. perfringens implicated in necrotic enteritis in poultry, Clostridium difficile, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Campylobacter jejuni, and Campyloblacter coli.

Antibiotic susceptibility tests with fastidious and nonfastidious bacterial reference strains: effects of aerobic versus hypercapnic incubation.

It was concluded that susceptibility tests, excluding aminoglycoside antibiotics, of beta-hemolytic streptococci, pneumococci or H. influenzae and H. parainfluenzae should be incubated under 3% or 5% CO2 so as to ensure optimal growth of capnephilic strains and thus avoid potentially misleading large inhibition zones of deceptively low minimal inhibitory concentrations.

Bacteriocins of gram-positive bacteria

In recent years, a group of antibacterial proteins produced by gram-positive bacteria have attracted great interest in their potential use as food preservatives and as antibacterial agents to combat

Production and pH-Dependent Bactericidal Activity of Lactocin S, a Lantibiotic from Lactobacillus sake L45

The results showed that lactocin S-mediated killing of target cells depended on the pH of the culture, and the pH had to be less than 6 in order to obtain a bactericidal effect with lactoc in S-sensitive cells.
