Family

Bacteriocin, class IId (IPR007464)

Short name: Bacteriocin_IId

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

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].
