Family

Bacteriocin, class IId (IPR007464)

Short name: Bacteriocin_IId

Family relationships

None.

Description

Bacteriocins are produced by bacteria to inhibit the growth of similar or closely related bacterial strains. The class II bacteriocins are small heat-stable proteins for which disulphide bonds are the only modification to the peptide.

Lactococcin A and B are class-IId bacteriocins (one-peptide non-pediocin-like bacteriocin) [PMID: 16205711, PMID: 11014335].
