None.

Description

This family consists of lactocin 705 which is a bacteriocin produced by Lactobacillus casei CRL 705. Lactocin 705 is a class IIb bacteriocin, whose activity depends upon the complementation of two peptides (705-alpha and 705-beta) of 33 amino acid residues each. Lactocin 705 is active against several Gram-positive bacteria, including food-borne pathogens and is a good candidate to be used for biopreservation of fermented meats [PMID: 10754241].
