    • Function

    • Mundticin KS is active against closely related lactic acid bacteria and the food-borne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes.
    • Sequence similarity

    • Mundticin KS comprises a 43-amino-acid peptide with an amino acid sequence similar to that of mundticin ATO6 produced by E. mundtii ATO6. Mundticin KS and mundticin ATO6 are distinguished by the inversion of the last two amino acids at their respective C termini.
