• bacteria
  • As a consequence of the ribosomal nature of these antimicrobials and, thus, the fact that bacteriocin producing bacteria possess a gene which encodes the structural (albeit as yet inactive) peptide, it was recognized that bacteriocins were likely to be more tolerant of bioengineering than classical antibiotics, as the latter are typically generated from small building blocks through muti-enzyme complexes i.e., are non-ribosomal in nature.

  • Using them in combination with other preservative techniques can effectively control spoilage bacteria and other pathogens, and can inhibit the activities of a wide spectrum of organisms, including inherently resistant Gram-negative bacteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • potential
  • The career path which has taken me from learning for the first time what bacteriocins are to understanding the potential of bacteriocin bioengineering has been a hugely enjoyable experience and promises to get even more interesting in the years to come. (biomedsearch.com)
