A collection of 381 Listeria monocytogenes strains was examined for strain variations in nisin and pediocin sensitivity at three different concentrations on Tryptic Soya Agar. Two of the strains were able to grow on agar plates containing 500 IU nisin ml-1. These strains were characterized as having an enhanced nisin tolerance. Twenty strains had normal growth on agar plates containing 1600 AU pediocin ml-1 and higher. These strains were characterized as pediocin-resistant. Another 34 strains… CONTINUE READING
