Capability of Lactobacillus acidophilus supernatant to inhibit production of lipase from methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

Abstract

The ability of acid supernatants of Lactobacillus acidophilus isolated from a vinegar weretested against methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) with lipolytic activity isolated from acnepimple. Results revealed a significant effect of cell free supernatant on MRSA isolates in comparison withcontrol. Furthermore, subinhibitory concentrations of acid supernatants found to be very effective ininhibiting the production of lipase from biofilm and planktonic cells of MRSA isolates. What's more, acidsupernatants of L. acidophilus showed inhibiting effect on the crude lipase in egg yolk agar plates
