    Hydrophobic means that the substance referred to "fears" water, or cannot dissolve in water. One known example of hydrophobic molecules is the phospholipids in our cell membranes: the hydrophilic heads stay on the outside and bridge the hydrophobic tails, which stay inside. I'm not too sure about bacteriocins but here's a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Class_II_bacteriocin. If you look at the structure and identify if its polar/non-polar, you should be able to identify if bacteriocin is hydrophobic or not.
