Considerable advances have been made in the genetics and molecular biology of lactic acid bacteria, including Lactococcus, Lactobacillus, Leuconostoc, Pediococcus and Streptococcus spp. These have resulted in the construction of constitutive gene expression cassettes, inducible gene expression systems, and specific protein targeting systems for these bacteria. These developments are important in the food industry where lactic acid bacteria can be exploited as food-grade cell factories.
