Abstract Pediocin AcH, a bacteriocin of Pediococcus acidilactici H, inhibits the growth of several food spoilage and pathogenic bacteria. The antigenic property of partially purified pediocin AcH was tested by immunizing mice and a rabbit. Pediocin AcH was not immunogenic in these animals as determined by immunoblotting even after conjugation to bovine serum albumin. The non-immunogenic nature of pediocin AcH, its non-toxicity to laboratory animals and its hydrolysis by gastric proteolytic enzymes may be considered favourably in its possible use as a food preservative.
