One Lactobacillus strain DJ-04 isolated from Chinese traditional fermented soybean paste was examined for its probiotic potential. The strain, identified asLactobacillus plantarum, had great tolerance to stimulated gastrointestinal juices, 0.03-0.2% bile and 2-10% salt, and showed a strong antimicrobial activity against four pathogenic bacteria, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella sp. and Shigella sp. In addition, good adhesion of L. plantarum DJ-04 to Caco-2 cells was observed in the study. Meanwhile, L. plantarum DJ-04 could significantly inhibited the adhesion of pathogenic bacteria to Caco-2 cells, with the inhibition percentage from 52.37% to 90.33%. These results suggested that L. plantarum DJ-04 could be a potential probiotic candidate in applications of fermented foods.                                                                                  

Keywords: Lactobacillus plantarum, Antimicrobial activity, Survival ability, Adhesion
