Gut check: Metabolites shed by intestinal microbiota keep inflammation at bay

Added: 21.05.2018 16:46 | 4 views | 0 comments

Researchers have elucidated a mechanism by which 'good' bacteria that reside in our gastrointestinal tract can help protect us from inflammation, and how their disruption (dysbiosis) can increase the susceptibility of the liver to more harmful forms of disease. Their study identified two key metabolites produced by the bacteria in mice that modulate inflammation in the host and could ultimately reduce the severity of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

What bacteria can teach us about combating atrazine contamination

Added: 20.05.2018 17:19 | 3 views | 0 comments

Researchers are interested in harnessing the bacterial ability to degrade atrazine in order to remediate atrazine-polluted environments. They now describe previously unknown proteins involved in atrazine degradation.

How immune cells kill bacteria with acid

Added: 20.05.2018 17:19 | 3 views | 0 comments

The first line of immune defense against invading pathogens like bacteria are macrophages, immune cells that engulf every foreign object that crosses their way and kill their prey with acid. However, it is not yet entirely understood how the acidification process is established. In their quest to systematically study proteins that transport chemicals across cellular membranes, researchers characterized the critical role for transporter SLC4A7, providing valuable new insights for many pathologic conditions.
