ChEBI Name nisin
ChEBI ID CHEBI:71629
Definition A type-A lantibiotic containing 34 amino acid residues (including lanthionine (Lan), methyllanthionine (MeLan), didehydroalanine (Dha) and didehydroaminobutyric acid (Dhb)) and five thioether bridges. It is obtained by fermentation of the bacterium Lactococcus lactis and shows particular activity against Clostridium botulinum. It is used in the production of various processed foods to suppress Gram-positive spoilage and pathogenic bacteria and so extend shelf life.

Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): metabolite
Any intermediate or product resulting from metabolism. The term 'metabolite' subsumes the classes commonly known as primary and secondary metabolites.
antibacterial agent
A substance that kills or slows the growth of bacteria.
antimicrobial food preservative
A food preservative which prevents decomposition of food by preventing the growth of fungi or bacteria. In European countries, E-numbers for permitted food preservatives are from E200 to E299, divided into sorbates (E200-209), benzoates (E210-219), sulfites (E220-229), phenols and formates (E230-239), nitrates (E240-259), acetates (E260-269), lactates (E270-279), propionates (E280-289) and others (E290-299).
antibiotic
A substance that is biostatic or biocidal at low concentrations towards bacteria, yeasts, moulds, or other form of life, especially pathogenic or noxious organisms. Although the term was originally restricted to substances produced by microorganisms, its use was later expanded to include derivatives of such substances and it is now commonly used to include entirely synthetic compounds.
