Innate Immune Homeostasis by the Homeobox Gene Caudal and Commensal-Gut Mutualism in Drosophila
It is shown that the intestinal homeobox gene Caudal regulates the commensal-gut mutualism by repressing nuclear factor kappa B–dependent antimicrobial peptide genes, and reveals that a specific genetic deficiency within a host can profoundly influence the gut commensAL microbial community and host physiology.
Proteobacteria: microbial signature of dysbiosis in gut microbiota.
An increase in the Akkermansia spp. population induced by metformin treatment improves glucose homeostasis in diet-induced obese mice
Modulation of the gut microbiota (by an increase in the Akkermansia spp. population) may contribute to the antidiabetic effects of metformin, thereby providing a new mechanism for the therapeutic effect of met formin in patients with T2D.
Diversity of ammonium-oxidizing bacteria in a granular sludge anaerobic ammonium-oxidizing (anammox) reactor.
The quantitative results from real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification showed that the dominant AnAOB comprised approximately 50% of the total bacterial 16S rRNA genes in the reactor, whereas the AAOB of beta-Proteobacteria represented only about 3%.

In this study, metagenomic approaches were used to monitor changes in bacterial populations, metabolic potential, and overall genetic features of the microbial community during the 29-day fermentation process of Kimchi, and provide insights into the kimchi microbial community.
Diversity and Abundance of Single-Stranded DNA Viruses in Human Feces
A phylogenetic analysis of 24 large contigs of microphages based on conserved capsid protein sequences revealed five distinct newly discovered evolutionary microphage groups that were distantly related to previously knownMicrophages, suggesting that Bacteroides and Prevotella are the sources of infecting microPHages in their hosts.
Investigation of archaeal and bacterial diversity in fermented seafood using barcoded pyrosequencing
The results indicate that the archaeal populations in the fermented seafood analyzed are diverse and include the halophilic and mesophilic groups, and that barcoded pyrosequencing is a promising and cost-effective method for analyzing microbial diversity compared with conventional approaches.
Impact of Pelvic Radiotherapy on Gut Microbiota of Gynecological Cancer Patients Revealed by Massive Pyrosequencing
Although further studies are needed to elucidate the relationship between dysbiosis and complications induced by pelvic radiotherapy, the current study may offer insights into the treatment of cancer patients suffering from complications after radiation therapy.
