Many cooks don't spoil the broth: Manifold symbionts prepare the host for any eventuality

Added: 15.10.2019 15:33 | 15 views | 0 comments

Deep-sea mussels, which rely on symbiotic bacteria for food, harbor a surprisingly high diversity of these bacterial 'cooks': Up to 16 different bacterial strains live in the mussel's gills, each with its own abilities and strengths. Thanks to this diversity, the mussel is prepared for all eventualities, researchers report.

A study from MIT reveals glycans, branched sugar molecules found in mucus, can prevent bacteria from communicating with each other and forming infectious biofilms, effectively rendering the microbes harmless.

Researchers alter mouse gut microbiomes by feeding good bacteria their preferred fibers

Added: 13.10.2019 18:35 | 5 views | 0 comments

Humans choose food based on the way it looks, smells, and tastes. But the microbes in our guts use a different classification system -- one that is based on the molecular components that make up different fibers. Investigators found particular components of dietary fiber that encourage growth and metabolic action of beneficial microbes in the mouse gut.

Antibiotics change the kinds of bacteria in the mouse gut as well as the bacteria's metabolism -- but diet can exacerbate the changes, a new study showed.

Diet's effect on gut bacteria could play role in reducing Alzheimer's risk

Added: 13.10.2019 18:35 | 6 views | 0 comments

Could following a certain type of diet affect the gut microbiome -- the good and bad bacteria that live in the gastrointestinal tract -- in ways that decrease the risk of Alzheimer's disease? According to researchers, that is a fair possibility.

Bacteria contradict Darwin: Survival of the friendliest

Added: 11.10.2019 18:20 | 16 views | 0 comments

New microbial research suggests that 'survival of the friendliest' outweighs 'survival of the fittest' for groups of bacteria. Bacteria make space for one another and sacrifice properties if it benefits the bacterial community as a whole.

New defensive mechanism against bacterial wound infections

Added: 11.10.2019 17:58 | 6 views | 0 comments

Wound inflammation which results in impaired wound healing can have serious consequences for patients. Researchers have discovered a new defensive mechanism which enables our skin to actively kill bacteria. Central to this mechanism is a cellular messenger molecule known as 'interleukin 6', whose mode of action may be used in the future to prevent wound infections.

Mode of delivery at birth may play key role in shaping the child's skin microbiome

Added: 11.10.2019 17:58 | 5 views | 0 comments

In a new study, investigators found that bacterial genera in children were more similar to those of their own mothers than to those of unrelated women. Their data suggest that the mode of delivery at birth could be an important factor in shaping the child's microbiome.
