Title: Colicins
Additional Names: Colicine
Literature References: Antibiotic substances, or complexes of antibiotic substances, which are highly specific, are produced by certain strains of intestinal bacteria, and act upon other related strains: Fredericq, Annu. Rev. Microbiol. 11, 7 (1957). Colicins produced by various strains may differ in many characteristics, the most conspicuous of which are activity spectra and the specificity of resistant mutants. They give the general reactions of proteins, are antigenic, and their activity is destroyed by proteolytic enzymes: Fredericq, J. Theor. Biol. 4, 159 (1963).
