  • BackgroundThe mucus layer covering the human intestinal epithelium forms a dynamic surface for host-microbial interactions. In addition to the environmental factors affecting the intestinal equilibrium, such as diet, it is well established that the microbiota composition is individually driven, but the host factors determining the composition have remained unresolved.ResultsIn this study, we show that ABO blood group is involved in differences in relative proportion and overall profiles of… CONTINUE READING
