The 1-anilino-8-naphthalenesulphonic acid (ANS) fluorescent probe was used to monitor alterations in the cytoplasmic membrane of sensitive Lactobacillus plantarum cells, caused by pediocin SJ-1, a bacteriocin produced by Pediococcus acidilactici. The addition of pediocin SJ-1 to the sensitive cells caused an increase in fluorescence intensity of ANS and a blue shift in its emission maximum from 520 to 475 nm. None of these spectral changes could be detected when pediocin SJ-1 was added to cells of a Lact. plantarum variant resistant to pediocin SJ-1. Upon the addition of pediocin SJ-1, dose- dependent energy transfer took place between tryptophanyl residues in the cytoplasmic membrane of sensitive cells and ANS. Similar ANS-fluorescence changes were observed with the bacteriocin nisin. The concentrations of pediocin SJ-1 needed to effect changes in the fluorescence spectrum of ANS were of the same magnitude as those required for a bactericidal effect and the release of u.v.-absorbing material. A hypothesis on the mode of action of pediocin SJ-1 is proposed.
