Basic antibacterial assay to screen for bacteriocinogenic lactic acid bacteria and to elementarily characterize their bacteriocins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Bacteriocins ribosomally produced by lactic acid bacteria are antibacterial peptides expected to be used as a safe biopreservative and a fermentation controller in food industry. The modified agar-well diffusion method is most frequently used for antibacterial activity assay to screen for potentially bacteriocin-producing strains and to elementarily characterize their bacteriocins and the relatives. Here, I describe procedure of the modified agar-well diffusion assay in the details.
