Bacteriocin: Enterocin 96

Default view

Bacteriocin: Enterocin 96

Accession: BAC149

Class: Class II
Gene: Unidentified
search in protein databases revealed that enterocin 96 was identical to the C-terminal part of a putative uncharacterized protein from Enterococcus faecalis V583 (accession number EF_B0056) identified after complete genome sequencing of this strain. The amino acid sequence of this protein contains an N-terminal extension of 26 amino acids with two C-terminal 1 glycyl residues. The likely presence of such an extension for enterocin 96 was investigated by sequencing its structural gene.
