OBJECTIVE Gardnerella vaginalis has long been the most common pathogen associated with bacterial vaginosis (BV). We aimed to test our hypothesis that symptoms and signs of BV do not necessarily indicate colonization by this organism, and often will not respond to standard metronidazole or clindamycin treatment. METHODS Using a relatively new molecular(More)
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is formed from linoleic acid (LA; cis-9,cis-12-18:2) by intestinal bacteria. Different CLA isomers have different implications for human health. The aim of this study was to investigate LA metabolism and the CLA isomers formed in two individuals (V1 and V2) with different faecal metabolic characteristics, and to compare fatty(More)
Butyrivibrio fibrisolvens is the most active bacterial species in the biohydrogenation of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) in the rumen. It needs to remove the unsaturated bonds in order to detoxify the PUFA to enable the growth of the bacterium. Here, we investigated the response of cell membrane-associated proteins in B. fibrisolvens to growth in the(More)
