Extrachromosomal genetic systems in lactic acid bacteria

Extrachromosomal genetic systems in lactic acid bacteria

Latte 9(6): 505-508, 511-515

The nature and significance of plasmids are outlined and evidence for plasmid-transfer of properties such as the ability to utilize lactose, galactose or citric acid, the ability to produce proteinases, bacteriocins or nisin, resistance to salts of heavy metals, intestinal epithelial adhesion, resistance to bacteriophages, production of endonucleases, sensitivity to the lactoperoxidase system and to agglutination, arginine hydrolysis, and formation of hydrocolloids in lactic streptococci and lactobacilli is reviewed.
