Incidence of nisin Z production in Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis TFF 221 isolated from Thai fermented foods



Incidence of nisin Z production in Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis TFF 221 isolated from Thai fermented foods



Journal of Food Protection 71(10): 2024-2029



Lactic acid bacteria isolated from various Thai fermented foods were screened for the presence of nisin gene by using PCR with primers specific to nisin A structural gene. Only one strain, <i>Lactococcus lactis</i> subsp. <i>lactis</i> TFF 221, isolated from kung jom, a traditional shrimp paste, was found to carry a nisin gene. The TFF 221 nisin had antimicrobial activity against not only closely related lactic acid bacteria but also some foodborne pathogens.
