Abstract:
Liamocin oil from Aureobasidium pullulans NRRL 50380 was tested for antibacterial activity. Liamocins inhibited growth of Streptococcus agalactiae, S. uberis, S. mitis, S. infantarius, and S. mutans, with minimum inhibitory concentrations from 20 'g/ml to 78 'g/ml. Enterococcus faecalis was less susceptible (MIC = 312 'g/ml), while Staphylococcus aureus, Lactobacillus fermentum, Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa had MICs > 1,250 'g/ml. Liamocins may be developed as a narrow spectrum antimicrobial agent that targets streptococcal pathogens.
