Class II bacteriocins are a class of small peptides that inhibit the growth of various bacteria. Many Gram-positive bacteria produce ribosomally synthesized antimicrobial peptides, termed bacteriocins. Bacteriocins for which disulfide bonds are the only modification to the peptide are Class II bacteriocins. One important and well studied class of bacteriocins is the class IIa or pediocin-like bacteriocins produced by lactic acid bacteria. All class IIa bacteriocins are produced by food-associated strains, isolated from a variety of food products of industrial and natural origins, including meat products, dairy products and vegetables. Class IIa bacteriocins are all cationic, display anti-Listeria activity, and kill target cells by permeabilizing the cell membrane. Class IIa bacteriocins contain between 37 and 48 residues. Based on their primary structures, the peptide chains of class IIa bacteriocins may be divided roughly into two regions: a hydrophilic, cationic and highly conserved N-terminal ...
In this study, we determined the nature of the two antimicrobial substances produced by S. mutans strain UA140; one is identical to mutacin I produced by strain CH43, and the other is a two-peptide nonlantibiotic bacteriocin, which we named mutacin IV. The two peptides of mutacin IV, NlmA and NlmB, are encoded by two genes in a single operon located on contig 450 in the S. mutansgenome database. nlmA encodes a prepeptide of 67 aa, consisting of a 23-aa leader peptide with a double-glycine cleavage site and a 44-aa mature peptide. nlmB encodes a prepeptide of 71 aa consisting of a 22-aa leader peptide, also with a double-glycine processing signal, and a 49-aa mature peptide. The fact that the calculated molecular mass of the mature NlmA and NlmB peptides matches the measured molecular mass of the purified mutacin IV peptides suggests that neither peptide is posttranslationally modified.. The production of lantibiotic mutacin I and nonlantibiotic mutacin IV in UA140 appeared to be regulated by ...

Bacteriocins represent a rather underutilized class of antimicrobials despite often displaying activity against many drug-resistant pathogens. Lantibiotics are a post-translationally modified class of bacteriocins, characterized by the presence of lanthionine and methyllanthionine bridges. In this study, a novel two-peptide lantibiotic was isolated and characterized. Formicin was isolated from Bacillus paralicheniformis APC 1576, an antimicrobial-producing strain originally isolated from the intestine of a mackerel. Genome sequencing allowed for the detection of the formicin operon and, from this, the formicin structural genes were identified, along with those involved in lantibiotic modification, transport and immunity. The identified bacteriocin was subsequently purified from the bacterial supernatant. Despite the degree of conservation seen amongst the entire class of two-peptide lantibiotics, the formicin peptides are unique in many respects. The formicin α peptide is far less hydrophobic than any
The Role of Bacteriocins in Mediating Bacterial Competitive Interactions. Explaining the coexistence of competing species is a major challenge in community ecology. In bacterial systems, competition is often driven by the production of bacteriocins, which are narrow-spectrum proteinaceous toxins that serve to kill closely related species, providing the producer better access to limited resources. Bacteriocin producers have been shown to competitively exclude sensitive, nonproducing strains. However, the dynamics between bacteriocin producers, each lethal to its competitor, are largely unknown. In this study, we used in vitro, in vivo and in silico models to study competitive interactions between bacteriocin producers. Two Escherichia coli strains were generated, each carrying a DNA-degrading bacteriocin (colicins E2 and E7). Using reporter-gene assays, we showed that each DNase bacteriocin is not only lethal to its opponent but, at lower doses, can also induce the expression of its opponents ...

Background: Lantibiotics are heat-stable peptides characterized by the presence of thioether amino acid lanthionine and methyllanthionine. They are capable to inhibit the growth of Gram-positive bacteria, including Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus or Bacillus cereus, the causative agents of food-borne diseases or nosocomial infections. Lantibiotic biosynthetic machinery is encoded by gene cluster composed by a structural gene that codes for a pre-lantibiotic peptide and other genes involved in pre-lantibiotic modifications, regulation, export and immunity. Methodology/Findings: Bacillus amyloliquefaciens GA1 was found to produce an antimicrobial peptide, named amylolysin, active on an array of Gram-positive bacteria, including methicillin ...
The bactericidal efficiency of ultrahigh hydrostatic pressure (UMP) and pulsed electric field (PEF) were studied in combination with two acteriocins, nisin A and pediocin AcH, and lysozyme. Several Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial species and strains associated with food spoilage and foodborne diseases were tested. The results showed that both UHP and PEF inflict lethal and sublethal injury to Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial cells. As the sublethally-injured cells became sensitive to the bactericidal action of the two bacteriocins and lysozyme, the combination of the UHP and PEF treatment, along with bacteriocin and lysozyme resulted in greater viability loss than when only the UHP or PEF are used. In general, under the study conditions, UHP and bacteriocins produced more viability loss than PEF with and without bacteriocins. By combining bacteriocins and lysozyme, UHP at 30,000 psi for 1 min produced viability loss of 13.8 logs in Listeria monocytogenes Scott A and 6.3 logs in
In this study, 95 isolates (22%) of 441 NAS encoded 105 bacteriocin biosynthetic gene clusters, making them potential bacteriocin producers. Bacteriocin gene clusters were detected in S. capitis, S. chromogenes, S. cohnii, S. epidermidis, S. equorum, S. fleurettii, S. gallinarum, S. haemolyticus, S. hyicus, S. saprophyticus, S. sciuri, S. simulans, S. succinus, S. vitulinus, S. warneri, and S. xylosus. According to the phylogenetic tree, bacteriocin gene clusters are spread throughout the NAS phylogeny, although lasso peptides were only present in 2 species from the same clade and sactipeptides were only identified in S. capitis. In contrast, only 40 (9%) of 441 NAS were inhibitors when antimicrobial activity was tested in vitro against a bovine clinical mastitis S. aureus isolate. We identified a higher percentage of NAS with antimicrobial activity than a previous study that reported only 6.4% of NAS from bovine mastitis cases were inhibitory (7). The NAS isolated from the teat apex skin of ...

Bacteria produce a diverse array of antagonistic compounds to restrict growth of microbial rivals. Contributing to this warfare are bacteriocins: secreted antibacterial peptides, proteins and multi-protein complexes. These compounds typically eliminate competitors closely related to the producer. Lectin-like bacteriocins (LlpAs) constitute a distinct class of such proteins, produced by Pseudomonas as well as some other proteobacterial genera. LlpAs share a common architecture consisting of two B-lectin domains, followed by a short carboxy-terminal extension. Two surface-exposed moieties on susceptible Pseudomonas cells are targeted by the respective lectin modules. The carboxy-terminal domain binds D-rhamnose residues present in the lipopolysaccharide layer, whereas the amino-terminal domain interacts with a polymorphic external loop of the outer-membrane protein insertase BamA, hence determining selectivity. The absence of a toxin-immunity module as found in modular bacteriocins and other polymorphic
TY - JOUR. T1 - Biosynthesis of the RiPP trojan horse nucleotide antibiotic microcin C is directed by the N-formyl of the peptide precursor. AU - Dong, Shi Hui. AU - Kulikovsky, Alexey. AU - Zukher, Inna. AU - Estrada, Paola. AU - Dubiley, Svetlana. AU - Severinov, Konstantin. AU - Nair, Satish K.. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Microcin C7 (McC) is a peptide antibiotic modified by a linkage of the terminal isoAsn amide to AMP via a phosphoramidate bond. Post-translational modification on this ribosomally produced heptapeptide precursor is carried out by MccB, which consumes two equivalents of ATP to generate the N-P linkage. We demonstrate that MccB only efficiently processes the precursor heptapeptide that retains the N-formylated initiator Met (fMet). Binding studies and kinetic measurements evidence the role of the N-formyl moiety. Structural data show that the N-formyl peptide binding results in an ordering of residues in the MccB "crossover loop", which dictates specificity in ...
The preservative potentials of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) recovered from some Nigerian traditional fermented foods were assessed by inoculating 0.1 ml aliquots of suitable dilutions of the food samples on De Man Rogosa Sharpe (MRS) agar fortified with 50mg of nystatin. The isolates were assessed for their ability to produce bacteriocin using Agar Well Diffusion assay method. By using (GTG)5-PCR and 16s rDNA sequencing tools, two bacteriocin-producing LAB namely Lactobacillus tucceti CECT 5920 and Lactobacillus mindensis TMW were identified. Both LAB isolates had equal level of bacteriocin activity. Studies on inhibitory activity of partially purified bacteriocin extracts showed that temperature of 35°C had maximum effect on bacteriocin antimicrobial activity of L. tucceti CECT 5920 against Staphylococcus aureus NCTC 8325 and Escherichia coli 0157:H7, while pH had same effects on both LAB isolates against the test bacteria. Maximum tolerance of acidic medium was exhibited by both LAB isolates at ...
The consortium will develop new antibiotics/antimicrobials, which have similar capabilities. The team will work with bacteriocins, potent toxins produced by bacteria to kill other, closely-related strains. Bacteriocins are naturally active in the human body but have not evolved to function as effective drugs in the clinic.. If a way can be found to convert bacteriocins into effective antibiotics, they offer excellent potential for use to address the growing problem of antibiotic resistance and the threat this poses to human and animal health around the world.. The consortium will take a model bacteriocin, discovered by University of Plymouth staff, and enhance its performance in terms of range of action, stability and potency. The aim is to generate derivatives which show drug-like properties without compromising the bacteriocins original potent bacteria-killing abilities. The manufacture of the derivatives will then be scaled-up into commercially attractive production systems.. Mathew Upton, ...

Lantibiotics are peptides, produced by bacteria, that contain the noncanonicalamino acid lanthionine and many of them exhibit antibacterial activities. The labyrinthopeptin A1 (LabyA1) is a prototype peptide of a novel class of carbacyclic lantibiotics. Here, we extensively evaluated its broad-spectrum activity against HIV and HSV in vitro, studied its mechanism of action and evaluated potential microbicidal applications. LabyA1 exhibited a consistent and broad anti-HIV activity (EC(50)s:0.70-3.3 mu M) and anti-HSV activity (EC(50)s:0.29-2.8 mu M) in cell cultures. LabyA1 also inhibited viral cell-cell transmission between persistently HIV-infected T cells and uninfected CD4(+) T cells (EC50:2.5 mu M) and inhibited the transmission of HIV captured by DC-SIGN(+)-cells to uninfected CD4(+) T cells (EC50:4.1 mu M). Time-of-drug addition studies revealed that LabyA1 acts as an entry inhibitor against HIV and HSV. Cellular and virus binding studies combined with SPR/FLIPR technology showed that ...
Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) are generally recognized as safe. It has been used to increase the shelf-life of fermented products, and its antimicrobial action is based on the metabolites secretions, such as lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, reuterin, bacteriocins and the like-bacteriocins substances. It has been proven that LAB are able to inhibit deteriorating bacteria of raw meat, but improper handling of live cultures could lead to spoilage. So, the use of their bacteriocins, small antimicrobial peptides, could be an alternative. Besides reducing the number of spoilage bacteria, it seeks to inhibit pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella, enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli and Listeria. The food industry uses few bacteriocins and now bacterial resistance has been reported. For that reason, the search of novel bacteriocins produced by LAB is a priority. Moreover, the natural microbiota of meat could be a reservoir of LAB.

Also, some antibiotic-resistant bacteria are actually less virulent than the sensitive bacteria, again implying a cost to the host for holding on to the plasmid. These resistant bacteria are often crowded out by the normal bacterial flora of the body. However, if the body is exposed to antibiotic, the sensitive bacteria die off, and the resistant bacteria are able to grow out and express their virulence.. Antibiotic resistance is certainly a matter of natural selection, but its more than just that. For example, all it takes in an ICU to have an outbreak of certain resistant strains is for one inoculum to be brought in. That inoculum will spread and its resistance plasmids will be exchanged with the non-resistant bacteria (and, dare I say, "emerge:"). Granted, if there is a selective pressure (the use of the antibiotic to which the resistant bacteria is resistant), that spread will happen a lot faster, but it will still happen to some extent even without the selection. Also, even a small number ...

In this paper we analyze the population dynamics of bacteria competing by anti-bacterial toxins (bacteriocins). Three types of bacteria involved in these dynamics can be distinguished: toxin producers, resistant bacteria and sensitive bacteria. Their interplay can be regarded as a Rock-Scissors-Paper - game (RSP). Here, this is modeled by a reasonable three-dimensional Lotka- Volterra ($L$V) type differential equation system. In contrast to earlier approaches to modeling the RSP game such as replicator equations, all interaction terms have negative signs because the interaction between the three different types of bacteria is purely competitive, either by toxification or by competition for nutrients. The model allows one to choose asymmetric parameter values. Depending on parameter values, our model gives rise to a stable steady state, a stable limit cycle or a heteroclinic orbit with three fixed points, each fixed point corresponding to the existence of only one bacteria type. An alternative ...

Intravenous inoculations of from 1 to 3 cc. per kilo of body weight of a bouillon culture of virulent pneumococci produce septicemia and meningitis in dogs.. The injected pneumococci leave the circulation rapidly, but begin to reinvade the blood from 24 to 48 hours later. The septicemia reaches its climax between the 4th and 5th days and then abruptly declines, the blood becoming sterile within from 1 to 3 days after the height of the septicemia is reached.. The initial disappearance of the pneumococci from the circulation has been found to be due to agglutination of the diplococci in the blood stream and accumulation of the clumps in the lungs, liver, spleen, etc.. If the dogs are reinoculated during the ascension of the septicemia, the injected diplococci leave the circulation as rapidly as in normal dogs. Cultures isolated in this stage of the infection, both before and from 3 to 4 hours after the reinoculation, are resistant to the agglutinins and opsonins of immune sera that agglutinate and ...

Lysostaphin is an antimicrobial agent belonging to a major class of antimicrobial peptides and proteins known as the bacteriocins. Bacteriocins are bacterial antimicrobial peptides which generally exhibit bactericidal activity against other bacteria. Bacteriocin production is a self-protection mechanism that helps the microorganisms to survive in their natural habitats. Bacteriocins are currently distributed into three main classes. Staphylococcins are bacteriocins produced by staphylococci, which are Gram-positive bacteria of medical and veterinary importance. Lysostaphin is the only class III staphylococcin described so far. It exhibits a high degree of antistaphylococcal bacteriolytic activity, being inactive against bacteria of all other genera. Infections caused by staphylococci continue to be a problem worldwide not only in healthcare environments but also in the community, requiring effective measures for controlling their spread. Since lysostaphin kills human and animal staphylococcal pathogens,

Background Bacteriocins are antimicrobial peptides that are produced by bacteria as a defense mechanism in complex environments. Identification and characterization of novel bacteriocins in novel strains of bacteria is one of the important fields in bacteriology. Methodology/Findings The strain GI-9 was identified as Brevibacillus sp. by 16 S rRNA gene sequence analysis. The bacteriocin produced by strain GI-9, namely, laterosporulin was purified from supernatant of the culture grown under optimal conditions using hydrophobic interaction chromatography and reverse-phase HPLC. The bacteriocin was active against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. MALDI-TOF experiments determined the precise molecular mass of the peptide to be of 5.6 kDa and N-terminal sequencing of the thermo-stable peptide revealed low similarity with existing antimicrobial peptides. The putative open reading frame (ORF) encoding laterosporulin and its surrounding genomic region was fished out from the draft
Chimeras of pediocin PA-1 (PedA-1), a bacteriocin produced by Pediococcus acidilactici PLBH9, fused to the signal peptide of enterocin P (EntP), a sec-dependent bacteriocin produced by Enterococcus faecium P13, permitted the production of PedA-1 in Lactococcus lactis. Chimeric genes encoding the EntP signal peptide (SP(entP)) fused to mature PedA-1 (pedA), with or without its immunity gene (pedB), were cloned into the expression vector pMG36c to generate the recombinant plasmids pMPP9 (SP(entP):pedA) and pMPP14i (SP(entP):pedA + pedB). Transformation of competent L. lactis subsp. lactis IL1403, L. lactis subsp. cremoris NZ9000, and L. lactis subsp. lactis DPC5598 with the recombinant plasmids has permitted the detection and quantitation of PedA-1 and the coproduction of nisin A and PedA-1 in supernatants of producer cells with specific anti-PedA-1 antibodies and a noncompetitive indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Recombinant L. lactis hosts carrying pMPP9 or pMPP14i displayed ...
