Immunobiotic Lactobacillus jensenii TL2937 modulates porcine mononuclear phagocytes from Peyer’s patches (PPMPs) and induces a differential production of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines in response to Toll-like receptor (TLR)-4 activation. In view of the important role played by phagocytosis in the activation of antigen presenting cells (APCs), the aim(More)
The genome of the immunomodulatory strain Lactobacillus jensenii TL2937 is described here. The draft genome has a total length of 1,678,416 bp, a G+C content of 34.3%, and 1,470 predicted protein-coding sequences. The genome information will be useful for gaining insight into the immunomodulatory properties of the TL2937 strain in the porcine host.
The genome sequence of Lactobacillus plantarum TL2766, a strain with the ability to ferment wakame (Undaria pinnatifida), is described here. The reads were assembled into contigs, with a total size of 3,310,195 bp. The genome information will be useful for further specific genetic studies of this strain and for its biotechnological applications.
