Characterisation of anti-Listeria monocytogenes bacteriocins from Enterococcus faecium strains isolated from dairy products



Characterisation of anti-Listeria monocytogenes bacteriocins from Enterococcus faecium strains isolated from dairy products



International Journal Of Dairy Technology: 1, 55-61



Bacteriocin-producing lactic acid bacteria were isolated from 34 samples of dairy products. Nine bacteriocin producers were phenotypically and genotypically identified as <i>Enterococcus faecium</i>. By means of PCR-techniques, enterocin A was characterised in all of the nine bacteriocin-producing <i>Enterococcus</i> isolates. Enterocin-producing lactic acid bacteria were the most abundant in dairy products collected from different areas in Iran.
