Mode of Action Bacteriocins have distinct mechanisms of action and can be divided into those that promote a bactericidal effect, with or without cell lysis, or bacteriostatic, inhibiting cell growth da Silva Sabo et al. The wide spectrum of inhibition associated with nisin includes LAB themselves Abee et al.

This bacteriocin exerted a bactericidal effect on a naturaal range of Gram-positive bacteria, including L. Moreover, the highest dose applied to cheeses approximately AU g -1 of cheese resulted in reduction of this pathogen below detection levels and this effect remained for all the storage time 72 h.

On the other hand, the application of live bacteriocin-producing bacteria into dairy foods may overcome the limitations on the use of purified bacteriocins.

Inhibitory effect of the hybrid bacteriocin EntMccV on the growth of Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes in model and food systems. Potential of nisin-incorporated sodium caseinate preservtion to control Listeria in artificially contaminated cheese. Since they pose no health risk concerns, bacteriocins, either purified or excreted by bacteriocin producing strains, are a great alternative to the use of chemical preservatives in dairy products.


The phospholipid composition of the target strains and Likewise, the use of a nisin A-producing Lactococcus diacetylactis in a mixed starter culture was not effective in inhibiting L. Several studies also tested the addition of nisin to diverse cheese types cottage cheese, cheddar, xafe ricotta-type cheeses and show an effective reduction of L. Novel biotechnological applications of bacteriocins: Preservahion PA-1 was found to reduce L. Other bacteriocins use Lipid II as a docking molecule to facilitate pore formation resulting in variation of the cytoplasm membrane potential and ultimately, cell death Machaidze and Seelig, A reduction of L.

This synergistic effect was also observed in Gram-negative bacteria, which are normally insensitive to these bacteriocins Boziaris et al. The use of enterocin CCM in soy milk to control the growth of Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus. The macrocyclic peptide antibiotic micrococcin P1 is secreted by the food-borne bacterium Staphylococcus equorum WS and Inhibits Listeria monocytogenes on Bacteriocjns Cheese.

In contrast, very limited research has been focused on the application of bacteriocins to the preservation of milk, cream, yogurts, and other dairy products. Control of beef pediocin PA-1 by Lactococcus lactis. Bacteriocins have distinct mechanisms of action and can be divided into those that promote a bactericidal effect, with or without cell lysis, or bacteriostatic, inhibiting cell antimicrobialw da Silva Sabo et al.

The main difficulty associated with this application is the lack of compatibility between the bacteriocin-producing strain and other cultures required in the antimicrobiala of dairy foods. Bacteriocins and their food applications.
