The main objetives of this study were the search for enzymatic activities responsible for biogenic amines (BAs) degradation in lactic acid bacteria (LAB) strain isolated from wine, their identification, and the evaluation of their applicability for reducing BAs in wine.

This is the first report of an efficient BA reduction in wine by LAB. Furthermore, the identification of the enzymes involved has been revealed.
