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.

The LAB were tested for their survival abilities in the simulated gastrointestinal conditions. Seven lactic acid bacteria namely Pediococcus acidilactici SDL 1402, Pediococcus acidilactici SDL 1405, Pediococcus acidilactici SDL 1406, Weissella cibaria SCCB 2306, Streptococcus thermophilus SCML 337, Streptococcus thermophilus SCML 300 and Ente...

In this study, a systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted to summarise available information on the occurrence of Salmonella spp. Listeria monocytogenes and shigatoxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) in fruits and vegetables sold at retail establishments in several European countries. Overall, L. monocytogenes was the main pathogen detected in all kinds of vegetables, packaged or not (3.4%; 95% CI: 2.1-5.4%) with Salmonella spp. being the pathogen of lowest incidence (0.9%; 95% CI: 0.5-1.2%). The pooled occurrence rate of pathogens in either packed or unpacked vegetables was estimated at 1.9% (95% CI: 1.2-3.1%)...
