|Abstract: ||Aims: To characterize two probiotic carnobacterial isolates, Carnobacterium
maltaromaticum (B26) and C. divergens (B33), derived from rainbow trout
(Oncorhynchus mykiss) intestine.
Methods and Results: Both cultures, which were able to colonize the fish gut
mucosal layer, comprised nonsporogenous, nonmotile, Gram-positive, catalase and
oxidase-negative rods. The growth of both carnobacteria occurred between 0 and
37C, in 0-10% (w ⁄ v) NaCl and at pH 5-10. Specifically, strain B26 grew in
nutrient broth supplemented with 15% (w ⁄ v) NaCl. The most abundant cellular
fatty acid of both cultures was 9-octadecenoic acid (18 : 1 n-9) (B26 = 52Æ6%;
B33 = 40Æ6%), which was characteristic of Carnobacterium. Both cultures were
inhibitory to Aeromonas salmonicida, Aer. hydrophila, Streptococcus iniae and
Vibrio anguillarum, and strain B33 inhibited Listeria monocytogenes. Both
carnobacteria, which did not contain plasmids, produced inhibitory compounds
against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
Conclusions: Both probiotic cultures, B26 and B33, had unique phenotypic
characteristics and showed a broad spectrum of antibiotic resistance against
varying pathogenic bacteria.
Significance and Impact of the Study: The results of this study contribute to
new information and significance of carnobacterial specie|
