Reuterin (Synonyms: 3-Hydroxypropionaldehyde; 3-Hydroxypropanal)

Cat. No.: HY-N8461
Handling Instructions

Reuterin is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent active against Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria, as well as yeasts, moulds and protozoa. Reuterin is produced by specific strains of Lactobacillus reuteri during anaerobic metabolism of glycerol. Reuterin also demonstrates potent antimicrobial activity against a broad panel of human and poultry meat campylobacter spp. Isolates.

Description

Reuterin is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent active against Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria, as well as yeasts, moulds and protozoa. Reuterin is produced by specific strains of Lactobacillus reuteri during anaerobic metabolism of glycerol. Reuterin also demonstrates potent antimicrobial activity against a broad panel of human and poultry meat campylobacter spp. Isolates[1][2].

In Vitro

Reuterin is water soluble, effective in a wide range of pH, resistant to proteolytic and lipolytic enzymes and has been therefore studied as a food preservative or auxiliary therapeutic agent. Reuterin is a potent antimicrobial with high activity against a broad panel of C. jejuni and C. coli isolates[1].
Reuterin is produced by certain strains of L. reuteri during anaerobic fermentation of glycerol and has a broad-spectrum antimicrobial property against enteric pathogens and intestinal bacteria[2].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.
