A lacticin transconjugant generated via conjugation of bacteriocin-encoding plasmids was used successfully against L. Topology of LcnD, a protein I. Many bacteriocins have been characterized biochemically and genetically, and though there is a basic understanding of their structure—function, biosynthesis, and mode of action, many aspects of these compounds are still unknown.

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. LAB have long been used in a variety of food fermentations by converting lactose to lactic acid, as well as producing additional antimicrobial molecules such as other organic acids, diacetyl, acetoin, hydrogen peroxide, antifungal peptides, and bacteriocins Egan et al. De Vuyst et al. Bacteriocin formation by dominant sage sporeformers isolated from traditional maari.

Listeriosis out-breaks linked to the consumption of contaminated cheeses have been reported worldwide. Classification of Bacteriocins For the past years, several classifications of bacteriocins have been proposed taking into consideration the first classification proposed by Klaenhammer Use of a bacteriocin-producing transconjugant as starter ssfe acceleration of cheese ripening.
