Abstract:The antibacterial activity of Weissella cibaria KY10 derived from digestive tract of healthy shrimp was investigated against Vibrio parahaemolyticus T.11 causing AHPND.In the co-cultivation assay, W. cibaria KY10 completely inhibited the growth of V. parahaemolyticus T.11 at 12 h under aerobic conditions. The antibacterial substances produced by W. cibaria were detected by GC-MS in parallel to the morphological changes of treated Vibrio cells. The major antibacterial components were higher-pKa acids, such as p… Show more
Bacteria belonging to the genera Weissella and Periweissella are lactic acid bacteria, which emerged in the last decades for their probiotic and biotechnological potential. In 2015, an article reviewing the scientific literature till that date on the taxonomy, ecology, and biotechnological potential of the Weissella genus was published. Since then, the number of studies on this genus has increased enormously, several novel species have been discovered, the taxonomy of the genus underwent changes and new insights into the safety, and biotechnological and probiotic potential of weissellas and periweissellas could be gained. Here, we provide an updated overview (from 2015 until today) of the taxonomy, ecology, safety, biotechnological, and probiotic potential of these lactic acid bacteria.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
