FACTORS DETERMING THE ADHESIVE CAPACITY OF LACTOBACILLUS BACTERIA

The ability of Lactobacillus to adhere to the intestinal epithelium is one of the most important criterion in the selection of probiotic strains. Adherence allows microorganisms to survive and temporarily colonize the digestive system, which is necessary to induce beneficial effects on the host. Adhesion is a very complex, multistep process and, although there are many proposed theories, the exact mechanism is still not fully understood. A crucial role in the formation of the adhesive

Protekcyjna rola bakterii z rodzaju Lactobacillus w pochwie jest od dawna znana, niemniej jednak dokładny mechanizm działania oraz możliwy wpływ na płodność nie jest do końca jasny i wymaga dalszych badań. Najnowsze wyniki badań wskazują również na obecność bakterii z rodzaju Lactobacillus w pozostałych częściach układu rozrodczego żeńskiego oraz w nasieniu [14, 58, 59]. Ich

Attempts to use probiotics in dentistry date back to the 1990s and concern primarily prevention and treatment of caries and periodontal disease.

Distribution of Cell Envelope Proteinases Genes among Polish Strains of Lactobacillus helveticus

Most of the lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are able to grow in milk mainly due to the activity of a complex and well-developed proteolytic system. Cell envelope-associated proteinases (CEPs) begin casein hydrolysis and allow for releasing the peptides, enclosed in the structure of native milk proteins that are essential for growth of Lactobacillus helveticus. The biodiversity of genes encoding CEPs among L. helveticus strains can have an effect on some technological parameters such as acid

The aim of this paper was to detect Lactobacillus delbrueckii and Streptococcus thermophilus using real-time quantitative PCR assay in 7-day ripening cheese produced from unpasteurised milk. Real-time quantitative PCR assays were designed to identify and enumerate the chosen species of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) in ripened cheese. The results of molecular quantification and classic bacterial enumeration showed a high level of similarity proving that DNA extraction was carried out in a proper

Probiotics can modulate gut microbiota and cause favorable changes in the gut microbiota structure and functions (Hasan et al. 2019). When given enough dose, probiotics will reach the intestinal tract in an active state, thus improving intestinal microorganisms’ balance and producing beneficial effects on the host (Deng et al. 2020).

The results showed that two days of fermentation was sufficient to increase the viable count of bacteria, lactic acid levels and degradation of soybean protein in fermented soybean meal at the initial moisture content of 50%. The pH value, lowering sugar content and oligosaccharides in fermented soybean meal, was significantly reduced at the initial moisture content of

Prevalence and Antimicrobial Properties of Lactic Acid Bacteria in Nigerian Women During the Menstrual Cycle

Introduction A healthy human vagina is primarily colonized by the genus Lactobacillus (Shiraishi et al. 2011) and it builds a barrier separating the pathogens from the epithelium, thereby, protecting the vagina. The pH ~ 4.5 also maintains the balance of the vaginal ecosystem as well as antimicrobial substances e.g. hydrogen peroxide against pathogens (Ayeni and Adeniyi 2013; Ghartey 2014). Occasional and recurrent vaginal yeast and bacterial imbalances are common among premenopausal women
