Vegetable-Associated Pediococcus parvulus Produces Pediocin PA-1


Two bacteriocin-producing strains of Pediococcus parvulus were isolated from minimally processed vegetables. Recombinant DNA techniques revealed the presence of the pediocin PA-1 gene in both strains. Biochemical analysis confirmed the production of pediocin PA-1 and excluded the presence of other bacteriocins.
