How the skin becomes inflamed: Toxin-producing bacteria

Added: 21.11.2020 1:19 | 5 views | 0 comments

Researchers report the discovery of a key underlying immune mechanism that explains why to how our skin becomes inflamed from conditions such as atopic dermatitis, more commonly known as eczema. Toxin-producing bacteria on the surface of our skin induces a protein that causes our own cells to react and cause inflammation.

Skin bacteria could protect against disease

Added: 21.11.2020 1:19 | 0 views | 0 comments

There are more and more examples of the ways in which we can benefit from our bacteria. According to new research, this is true for the skin as well. The work has shown that the most common bacteria on human skin secrete a protein which protects us from the reactive oxygen species thought to contribute to several skin diseases. The protein has an equally strong effect on dangerous oxygen species as known antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E.

People who have inadequate vitamin A in their diets are more susceptible to skin infection, yet how that vitamin affects skin immunity has been unclear. New research sheds some light on that mystery by identifying a previously unknown bacteria-killing protein on the epidermis that requires the vitamin to work.

Glyphosate may affect human gut microbiota

Added: 20.11.2020 14:58 | 23 views | 0 comments

More than half of bacterial species in the core of the human gut microbiome are potentially sensitive to glyphosate, shows new research. Researchers introduced the first bioinformatics resource to determine and test the potential sensitivity of organisms to glyphosate.
