Probiotic lactobacilli can positively impact on the health status of targeted (diseased) populations but efficacy depends strongly on the strain employed and the molecular basis for this phenomenon is poorly understood. This review discusses the current state-of-the-art in the field of molecular probiotic-host interactions, focusing on subtle strain-specific differences in the biochemical characteristics of cell surface-associated probiotic ligands and the consequences thereof for the immune… CONTINUE READING
