  • Lactobacillus: Gastrointestinal Virus

    Lactobacillus is the most commonly used bacterial species (Swyers et al. 2008). A study conducted by Al Jassim et al. recorded that several species of Lactobacillus were located throughout the equine gastrointestinal tract. This concludes that these microbes have the ability to adapt to pH changes and survive in different environments. L. mucosae and L. salivarius were found to be the most abundant. L. salivarius, specifically, was cultured from the stomach, colon, and rectum, suggesting its high survival rate in acidic environments (Al Jassim et al. 2005). While probiotics are supposed to be the “good” bacteria, there are certain strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium that are considered to be detrimental to the horse 's health. A study…

The intestinal microbiota in people with Crohn’s is altered and deficient…

  • Leaky Gut Essay

    Alcohol’s fermented state disrupts the tight joints of the intestinal wall, allowing ligands to enter the portal vein that trigger the immune system to inflame the area, resulting in increased intestinal permeability and a positive feedback loop of inflammation that cannot be corrected by Lactobacillus due to the alcohol inhibiting the synthesis of LCFAs that Lactobacillus needs to function (Llorente and Schnabl, 2015; Wang et al., 2013). Alcohol also causes fat build-ups in the liver, commonly…

  • Lambdasa2, Lysgay

    showed that the phage LambdaSa2, derived from streptococcal bacteria, demonstrated effective lytic activity in 17 out of 22 of the bacteria strains tested. LambdaSa2 was able to maintain its effectiveness when tested under the typical conditions of fermentation (pH 5.5 and less than or equal to 5% ethanol concentration), however, LambdaSa2 when tested with Lactobacillus fermentum 0605-B44 and Lactobacillus fermentum BR0315-1 showed optimal specific activity at pHs 6.5 and 7.5, as shown in Figure…

  • Shirota Case Study

    1. Brief history of the company/factory ? In 1930, Dr. Minoru Shirota, who was conducting research in a microbiology lab at the Medical Faculty of Kyoto University in Japan. He succeed in culturing a strain of lactic acid bacteria beneficial to human health. This bacterium was named "Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain. It took Dr. Shirota another 5 years of research to find the right food medium for the Lactobacillus casei Shirota bacteria. In 1935 the first bottle of Yakult, a fermented…

  • Latococcus Lactis Research Paper

    Lactococcus lactis is a microbe classified informally as a Lactic Acid Bacterium because it ferments milk sugar (lactose) to lactic acid. Lactococci are typically spherical or ovoid cells, about 1.2µm by 1.5µm, occurring in pairs and short chains. They are Gram-positive, non motile, and do not form spores. Lactococci are found associated with plant material, mainly grasses, from which they are easily inoculated into milk. Hence, they are found normally in milk and may be a natural cause of…

  • Why Are Probiotics Are More Important Than Good Bacteria

    the absorption of nutrition from food. It is the reason people often get diarrhea when taking antibiotics. Since probiotic bacteria are a major component of our immune system, taking antibiotics also disrupts our body's natural ability to defend itself against sickness or infection. Even against things that we would normally have beaten without any noticeable symptoms. These conditions will remain until our gut ecology is re-populated. Taking a probiotic supplement can speed up this process…

  • Intestinal Microbiota Essay

    There are alternatives that help the establishment and improvement of the intestinal microbiota with beneficial health outcomes such as probiotics: indigestible food components intestinal bacteria selectively used for fermentation, although it is unclear exactly how the use of prebiotics alter the composition and function of the intestinal microbiota, the degree of stability of these changes, and what effect it may have changes in the microbiota to human health. (4). And probiotics are live…

    proinflammatory signaling. However, the answer was not provided in Ding, et al, (2009). In Schultz, et al, (2003), one of the inflammatory diseases that are related to the intestinal tract was tested. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease. One of the contributor to this disease development was Lactobacillus. Thus, Shultz, et al, (2003) was picked to continue the discussion of inflammation and lactobacillus role in the body. The main purpose of this research was to test the…

  • KOH String Test Lab Report

    what your unknown bacteria are (Leicht, 2015). For this experiment my partner and I selected bacteria that was on our finger. We thumb printed the petri dish and let the bacteria grow on it. We did a visual classification of the DNA. We determined our bacteria were gram positive after doing the KOH string test. Then we preform additional testing using different growth mediums like vancomyin, EMB-lactose, PEA, and MSA, along with a catalase test. We also amplified the 16S rRNA gene from the…
