New mycocinogenic strains of the yeast Kluyveromyces lactis were found. They have fungicidic activity at pH from 5 to 7. This activity was eliminated by UV irradiation. Among over 260 species tested, ones sensitive to these mycocins were revealed mainly in the families Saccharomycetaceae and Wickerhamomycetaceae of the order Saccharomycetales.
