Nukacin ISK-1 of 57 aas (Okuda et al., 2008). It is active on Gram-positive bacteria, including Lactobacillus sakei, Leuconostoc mesenteroides and Pediococcus pentosaceus. The bactericidal activity is based on depolarization of energized bacterial cytoplasmic membranes, initiated by the formation of aqueous transmembrane pores (Aso et al. 2004). It is processed and secreted by NukT (TC# 3.A.1.111.7) (Zheng et al. 2017).
