"Enterocin DD14; a leaderless bacteriocin: Regulation – Transport and applications”

In this presentation, I’ll share data generated on the transport of enterocin DD14 (EntDD14), which doesn’t seem to take place, via classical pathways, namely ABC transport systems. In addition, I will discuss the impact of polynucleotide phosphorylase (PNPase), a major 3’-5’ exoribonuclease, on EntDD14 production and on the global transcriptome of the producing bacterium, Enterococcus faecalis 14. Finally, I’ll briefly mention possible antiviral and antibacterial applications of this bacteriocin.
