Three out of 297 Lactobacillus strains isolated from pig faeces were selected for a feeding trial on account of their high bile-salt hydrolase (BSH) activity, bile-salt resistance, low pH tolerance and the production of antimicrobial substances. Two strains were identified as Lactobacillus johnsonii and one as Lactobacillus reuteri by DNA-DNA hybridisation. L. johnsoniii BFE 1061 produced a bacteriocin active against a range of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and nonrelated bacteria including… Expand
Selection of potential probiotic lactobacilli from pig feces to be used as additives in pelleted feeding.
TLDR
The findings in this study provide a strong basis for exploring the potential of porcine lactobacilli isolates to be used in pelleted feeding as probiotic additives. Expand
Survival and persistence of Lactobacillus plantarum 4.1 and Lactobacillus reuteri 3S7 in the gastrointestinal tract of pigs.
TLDR
It is shown that L. plantarum 4.1 and L. reuteri 3S7 have the potential to be used as probiotic additives in pelleted feed for pigs and have the capacity to survive during the gastrointestinal transit. Expand
Selection and characterization of probiotic lactic acid bacteria and its impact on growth, nutrient digestibility, health and antioxidant status in weaned piglets
TLDR
The Pediococcus acidilactici FT28 was selected as potential probiotic candidature for in vivo efficacy in weaned pigs and host specificity of Lacp28 was further confirmed by heavy in vitro adhesion to pig intestinal epithelium cells compared to chicken. Expand
Probiotic potential of Lactobacillus strains isolated from dairy products
TLDR
Although no bacteriocin activity was detected in vitro, strains L. casei Shirota, L. plantarum and L. tolerans ACA-DC 4037 were able to inhibit the adhesion of Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium to Caco-2 cells and induced the secretion of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines by human peripheral blood mononuclear cells, finding them to possess desirable probiotic properties.

Characterization and Selection of Lactobacilli with Probiotic Properties from Cow's Raw Milk of "Bororo" Cattle Breeders in Dschang (Cameroon)
This study aimed at isolating potential probiotic lactobacilli strains from cow's raw milk collected near the small cattle breeders in Dschang (Cameroon) and applying established in vitro tests toExpand
Effect of three lactobacilli with strain-specific activities on the growth performance, faecal microbiota and ileum mucosa proteomics of piglets
TLDR
All the three lactobacilli in this study show comparable effects to antibiotics on piglets growth performance and were found able to modify intestinal microbiota and mucosa proteomics. Expand
Molecular and physiological studies on the functionality of probiotic lactobacilli
TLDR
This study provides a rationale for the further use of four of the selected Lactobacillus strains as probiotics for therapeutic or disease preventive purposes and indicates that certain probiotic strains may act as adjuvants to increase responses against pathogens. Expand
Characterization of Lactobacillus plantarum PH04, a potential probiotic bacterium with cholesterol-lowering effects.
TLDR
The results indicated that L. plantarum PH04 might be effective as a probiotic with cholesterol-lowering activities. Expand
Lactobacillus spp. with in vitro probiotic properties from human faeces and traditional fermented products.
TLDR
Lactobacillus strains from traditional African fermented milk products, as well as human intestinal isolates were identified and investigated in vitro for their technological and functional characteristics as potential new probiotic strains and five strains identified as L. johnsonii showed good survival under simulated gastrointestinal conditions. Expand
The effect of fermented liquid feeding on the faecal microbiology and colostrum quality of farrowing sows.
TLDR
The combined effects of enhanced maternal/passive immunity and the reduction in the level of environmental contamination with faecal pathogens, achieved by FLF, may be important in achieving improved health status for both sows and piglets. Expand

Effects of a mixture of organisms, Lactobacillus acidophilus or Streptococcus faecalis on cholesterol metabolism in rats fed on a fat- and cholesterol-enriched diet.
TLDR
The results indicate that the mixture of organisms decreased the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver and increased the loss of steroids from the intestine, in rats, and had a hypocholesterolaemic role. Expand
Importance of bile tolerance of Lactobacillus acidophilus used as a dietary adjunct.
TLDR
In a feeding trial involving newborn dairy calves supplementation of the diet with the more bile resistant strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus caused greater increases of numbers of facultative lactobabilli in the upper small intestines than did the strain exhibiting lower resistance to bile. Expand
Therapeutic role of dietary lactobacilli and lactobacillic fermented dairy products
TLDR
Lactic acid bacteria present in the human and animal gut are introduced through fermented milk products, food and feed supplements containing viable bacteria and are involved in the host metabolism. Expand
Antibacterial activity of Lactobacillus sake isolated from meat
TLDR
A total of 221 strains of Lactobacillus isolated from meat and meat products were screened for antagonistic activities under conditions that eliminated the effects of organic acids and hydrogen peroxide, indicating that this substance is a bacteriocin, which was designated sakacin A. Expand
Factors to consider when selecting a culture of Lactobacillus acidophilus as a dietary adjunct to produce a hypocholesterolemic effect in humans.
TLDR
Significant variations in bile tolerance and ability to assimilate cholesterol were observed among 12 cultures of Lactobacillus acidophilus of human origin and the most active cholesterol-assimilating cultures also varied in the ability to produce bacteriocins. Expand
Detection and activity of lactacin B, a bacteriocin produced by Lactobacillus acidophilus
TLDR
Examination of strains of L. acidophilus within the six homology groupings of Johnson et al. demonstrated that production of the bacteriocin lactacin B could not be used in classification of neotype L. Acidophilus strains, however, the usefulness of employing sensitivity to lactac in B in classified of dairy lactobacilli is suggested. Expand
Assimilation of cholesterol by Lactobacillus acidophilus
Considerable variation was found among strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus isolated from the fecal flora of pigs with regard to the ability to grow well in the presence of bile and to assimilateExpand
In Vitro Study of Bile Salt Hydrolase (BSH) Activity of BSH Isogenic Lactobacillus plantarum 80 Strains and Estimation of Cholesterol Lowering through Enhanced BSH Activity
TLDR
In vitro study indicates that altering BSH activity can be a valid (micro) biological alternative treatment for patients with severe hypercholesterolaemia and calculated that a daily intake of a realistic amount of highly BSH active Lactobacilli cells, e.g. in the form of yoghurt, might lead to a significant reduction of cholesterol. Expand
Metabolism of Bile Salts by Alimentary Bacteria During Transit in the Human Small Intestine
TLDR
It is suggested that the absence or limited extent of bile salt transformation capacity of bacteria added to food should be a pre-requisite for labelling a product as GRAS (generally recognised as safe) for fear of detrimental effects on small bowel physiology. Expand
The genus Lactobacillus
Lactobacilli are Gram-positive, non-spore-forming, rods or coccobacilli with a G+C content of DNA usually below 50 mol%. They are strictly fermentative, aero-tolerant or anaerobic, aciduric orExpand
