Antimicrobial peptides protect the host by different mechanisms, but most commonly by Bacteria are a source of antimicrobial peptides, permeabilizing the target cell membrane, resulting in which have been examined for applications in micro- Table sace Examples of bacteriocins isolated from foods Source Strain Active against References Commercial probiotic Streptococcus sp.

In addition, some enterococci may harbor virulence determinants and antibiotic resistance genes EFSA, Class I peptides, and can be further subdivided. One may speculate that entry into the cell activating the bacteriocin.

They are categorized in several ways, including producing strain, peptides structure, and mechanism of action. While food enterococci have fewer virulence determinants than clinical strains, they are known for their capacity to exchange genetic information Eaton and Gasson, One of these mechanisms are the acquisition of defense system as the production of antimicrobial peptides AMPsalso known by the name natursl.
