  1. 1. Barley malt products for improved intestinal health

    Author : Cristina Teixeira; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; short-chain fatty acids; β-glucan; arabinoxylan; steeping; β-glucan molecular weight; Barley; microbiota; malt; Barley; Beta-glucan; beta-glucan molecular weight; Arabinoxylan; Microbiota;

    Abstract : Barley is a good source of dietary fibre, particularly β-glucan and arabinoxylan, to increase formation of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). Butyric and propionic acid are involved in the preservation of colonic barrier function, thus decreasing the risk of inflammation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development and dynamics of the normal gut microbiota

    Author : Lisa M. Olsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : dynamics; ecology; gut microbiome; gut microbiota development; microbiota; richness; Prader-Willi Syndrome; stability; variation;

    Abstract : Altered gut microbiota configurations have been linked to human diseases. To identify mechanistic links between altered gut microbiota and disease states, definitions of the healthy gut microbiota need to be established. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring the microbiota of the gastrointestinal tract

    Author : Jie Xu; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiota; Probiotics; Blood pressure; High fat diet; Oat; Green tea; Berry; Fiber; Exopolysaccharides; Ulcerative colitis;

    Abstract : Abstract: Balanced microbiota of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is important for maintaining health of the host. Altered gut microbiota have been found to be associated with various life-style induced and other intestinal inflammatory diseases. Gut microbiota is viewed as a metabolic organ and considered as new target for therapies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of the Intestinal Microbiota by DNA-Based Methods

    Author : Mei Wang; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi; bacteriology; virology; Microbiology; Ulcerative colitis; T-RFLP; 16S rRNA; Brachyspira; Microbiota; Bacterial diversity; Bacterial translocation; Translocating bacteria;

    Abstract : The intestinal flora and the bacteria found in the extraintestinal sites were studied in liver injury rats, with or without Lactobacillus plantarum 299v pre-treatment. The dominating intestinal flora and translocating bacteria were typed by RAPD and identified by 16S rDNA sequencing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lactobacilli in the normal microbiota and probiotic effects of Lactobacillus plantarum

    Author : Elisabeth Lönnermark; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : lactobacillus; oral microbiota; gut microbiota; infants; adults; secretory IgA; IgA-deficiency; adherence; Lactobacillus plantarum; probiotics; antibiotics; salmonellosis; diarrhoea;

    Abstract : Lactobacilli colonise most adult individuals and are also frequently used as probiotics, i.e. bacteria which possibly have health promoting effects when ingested. In this thesis, the intestinal Lactobacillus microbiota was studied in longitudinally followed infants. READ MORE
