Lactic acid bacteria as probiotics.
A number of Lactobacillus species, Bifidobacterium sp, Saccharomyces boulardii, and some other microbes have been proposed as and are used as probiotic strains, i.e. live microorganisms as food…

In the mouse rhinitis model, mers acidin was able to eradicate MRSA colonization and the site of action (epithelium versus blood) of mersacidin needs to be further explored.

The data indicate that immunoblotting is more sensitive as well as more specific than EIA, and it permits detection of antibody responses to specific antigens, e.g., the cytotoxin-associated CagA protein, which may have pathological implications.

Aims: The aim of this study was to investigate extracellular matrix (ECM) and mucin binding of selected bacterial isolates with probiotic features in comparison with commercially used probiotic…
Glycosaminoglycan-binding microbial proteins in tissue adhesion and invasion: key events in microbial pathogenicity.
Heparin and other glycosaminoglycan-binding proteins may have potential uses as therapeutic agents in microbial infections and could form part of future vaccines against such infections.
Lactobacillus molecular biology : from genomics to probiotics
From genomics to proteomics is an update on lactic acid bacteria, from genomic and biochemical characterization, to biological effects in the host, and finally, to potential clinical applications as probiotics (Chapters 8 and 11).
