Alignment of mature pediocin PA-1 with other pediocin-like bacteriocinsa

Embedded Image
  • a Bars indicate the N-terminal consensus motif (A), the short C-terminal consensus motif of the pediocin-like bacteriocins (B), and the sequence of fragment PH2 of pediocin PA-1 against which the polyclonal antibodies were generated (C). Data were based on sequences reported by Casaus et al. (10) and Cintas et al. (13). For enterocin B, carnobacteriocin A, and acidocin A, only the last 25 amino acids of the C termini are shown. Dashes indicate gaps.
