Bacteriocins are one of the natural secondary metabolite of bacteria that inhibit the growth of other bacteria. Silver nanoparticle (AgNP) also has such activity which is produced from bacteriocin. In this study we have synthesised bacteriocin and AgNP from milk and curd bacteria. Antimicrobial activity of bacteriocin and AgNP are discussed herein.
