Body weight index indicates the responses of the fecal microbiota, metabolome and proteome to beef/chicken-based diet alterations in Chinese volunteers
This work highlighted the role of BMI as an important factor predicting changes in gut homeostasis in response to meat consumption. Compared with the chicken-based diet, the beef-based diet may induce more allergic and inflammation-related responses in high- and middle- BMI Chinese.
It is now becoming critical to understand how a synergistic community of virulent bacteria can persist below the gum line, modulate inflammatory responses, and promote gum infections and inflammation, with strong implications in several systemic diseases in adults.
Using a controlled preterm piglet model, we found rectal fecal microbiota transplantation manifested clinically and microbiologically in a donor-dependent manner. Metagenomic analysis revealed strain-level phylogenetic separation of the engrafted lactobacilli strains according to the donors.
The Many Healing Faces of Nisin - Nisin and its Probiotic Prevent Inflammatory Bone Loss while Promoting Reparative Proliferation and a Healthy Microbiome
We characterised three Antigen 43 (Ag43) proteins from Escherichia coli strains responsible for urinary tract infections (UTI) and foodborne diseases. The homologues revealed different biofilm and aggregation profiles, which determine the level of bacterial compacting and protection within a biofilm
