Antibiotic Resistance in Lactic Acid Bacteria
Antimicrobial Resistance - A Global Threat [Working Title]
Most starter cultures belong to the lactic acid bacteria group (LAB) and recognized as safe by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). However, LAB may act as intrinsic or extrinsic reservoirs for antibiotic resistance (AR) genes. This fact may not constitute a safety concern itself, as the resistance gene transfer is vertical. Nevertheless, external genetic elements may induce changes that favor the horizontal transfer transmission of resistancedoi:10.5772/intechopen.80624 fatcat:ytjcmsjr2ngdplmdbtyjqxccsq
