Brochothrix campestris ATCC 43754 produces a bacteriocin inhibitory towards Brochothrix thermosphacta, lactobacilli, Listeria spp., and other gram-positive bacteria. This antimicrobial agent is heat stable, sensitive to proteases, catalase insensitive, and free of organic acids. No phage particles were detected by transmission electron microscopy. Muramidase activity was not detected in the preparations. On the basis of established criteria, the antimicrobial agent was classified as a bacteriocin and named brochocin-C.
