ABSTRACT
Plasmids are widely distributed in different sources of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) as self-replicating extrachromosomal genetic materials, and have received considerable attention due to their close relationship with many important functions as well as some industrially relevant characteristics of the LAB species. They are interesting with regard to the development of food-grade cloning vectors. This review summarizes new developments in the area of lactic acid bacteria plasmids and aims to provide up to date information that can be used in related future research.

Organization of the gene clusters of pediocin and related bacteriocins from different plasmids. (a) pS34 from P. pentosaceus (Pediococcus pentosaceus) S34 (NG_035883.1); (b) pATO77 from P. parvulus (Pediococcus parvulus) ATO77 (NG_035882.1); (c) pSMB74 from P. acidilactici (Pediococcus acidilactici) H (NC_004832.1); (d) pWHE92 from L. plantarum WHE92 (NG_035884.1); (e) pPLA4 from L. plantarum 423 (AF304384.2); (f) pI4 from B. coagulans I4 (NG_035346.1); and (g) pEnt4 from E. faecium Acr4 (NG_041274.1). Open reading frames (ORFs) encoding the related proteins are marked with a different color. The number of amino acid residues within each encoded protein is shown above the corresponding ORF.

Open reading frames (ORFs) encoding the related proteins are marked with a different color. The number of amino acid residues within each encoded protein is shown above the corresponding ORF.

Mentions: In several strains, the sizes and organization of the various pediocin-encoding plasmids are similar, including pATO77 from P. parvulus ATO77, pS34 from P. pentosaceus S34, and pWHE92 from L. plantarum WHE92 [119,123,125,126,127,128,134,135] (Figure 2). Structure, immunity and secretion system genes are linked together in the operons, and the promoter sequences are the same. Pediocin can be used as a selection marker in cloning vectors, therefore, plasmids that carry the genes for its production, can be used for development of food-grade cloning vectors [122].
