Microbiota-activated PPAR-{gamma} signaling inhibits dysbiotic Enterobacteriaceae expansion

Perturbation of the gut-associated microbial community may underlie many human illnesses, but the mechanisms that maintain homeostasis are poorly understood. We found that the depletion of butyrate-producing microbes by antibiotic treatment reduced epithelial signaling through the intracellular butyrate sensor peroxisome proliferator–activated receptor (PPAR-). Nitrate levels increased in the colonic lumen because epithelial expression of Nos2, the gene encoding inducible nitric oxide synthase, was elevated in the absence of PPAR- signaling. Microbiota-induced PPAR- signaling also limits the luminal bioavailability of oxygen by driving the energy metabolism of colonic epithelial cells (colonocytes) toward β-oxidation. Therefore, microbiota-activated PPAR- signaling is a homeostatic pathway that prevents a dysbiotic expansion of potentially pathogenic Escherichia and Salmonella by reducing the bioavailability of respiratory electron acceptors to Enterobacteriaceae in the lumen of the colon.

KampfSummaryBenzalkonium chloride (BAC) is a widely used biocidal agent in health care, mainly in surface disinfectants and disinfectant cleaners. The aim of this review was to evaluate the potential of bacteria to adapt to low-level BAC exposure. A maximum four-fold increase in minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was found in most of the 57 bacterial species evaluated. A strong adaptive, mostly stable, change in MIC was described in strains or isolates of Pantoea spp., Enterobacter spp., Staphylococcus saprophyticus and Esc...

This study was undertaken to analyze the survival of Salmonella spp. during soft-cooked eggs processing by temperature-controlled water circulator. A pool of Salmonella spp. was inoculated in egg yolks and were incubated at 37 °C, for 18 h, reaching 7.7 ± 0.1 log10 CFU/g. Contaminated eggs were processed at 62 °C for 60 minutes and samples were collected in order to investigate Salmonella survival. Results indicated that the egg center temperature reached 61.7 ± 0.4 °C after 30 minutes, completely inactivating 7.7 log of Salmonella spp. After 30 minutes of cooking, yolk remained liquid and the egg...
