Now, I'm not a scientist, but can someone please explain this report on strains of E. Faecalis??? This has to be the strain that has been mentioned in Threelac, wouldn't you say?

Enterococcus faecalis TH10, an isolate from a Malaysian fermentation food tempeh, was found to produce a potent antimicrobial activity against enterohemorrhagic bacterium, Escherichia coli O-157. In contrast to bacteriocins typically produced by strains of E. faecalis, antimicrobial components of E. faecalis TH10 did not cause the lysis of blood samples of the rabbit and the human. The antimicrobial activity of E. faecalis TH10 showed distinct characteristics from those of typical bacteriocins; it retained activity after treatment with various proteolyiic enzymes, and it showed poor antimicrobial activity against closely related lactic acid bacteria. E. faecalis TH40, showing the increased production of antimicrobial activity by several folds, was derived from the TH10 strain by ultraviolet light irradiation. A major antimicrobial component of E. faecalis TH40 was readily purified by column chromatography, crystallized from ethyl acetate, and identified as succinic acid. Besides succinic acid, E. faecalis TH40 produced neutral antimicrobial components but they were only partially purified due to low recovery during the purification steps. (author abst.)
