Newsletter #150
May 9th, 2019


Dear Friends,

We start this edition of our newsletter with a new study, led by Paul Enck, which, for the first time, shows the role of the probiotic Bifidobacterium longum 1714 in modulating brain function in response to social stress. You will also come across a new article that has found how inulin fermentation in the colon may contribute to the beneficial effects observed on glucose metabolism and inflammation in overweight and obese subjects.

Next up is the first large-scale observational study that provides evidence of maternal breast milk and infant feces microbiota variations within and between 11 populations worldwide. Finally, a new article shows how enriched or depleted genetic functions in the gut microbiota may shape some disease risk factors.

Happy reading!

Bifidobacterium longum 1714 may modulate brain function in response to social stress in healthy adults

Could increasing delivery of propionate to the human colon be a potential way of improving glucose homeostasis in overweight or obese individuals?


Genes from the gut microbiota encode for a wide range of metabolic activities that allow commensal microbes to...

Genetic variations in gut microbiota are stable within individuals and shape host disease risk factors


Although twin research has shown that gut microbiota features a heritable component, we do not know whether gut microbial genetic variations can shape phenotypic differences that affect...

A new cohort study reveals variations in milk and infant fecal microbiota within and between populations


The human milk microbiota is an important source of commensal microorganisms for the infant gut. Although both maternal and infant microbiomes are shaped by...
