Comparative Genomics and Specific Functional Characteristics Analysis of Lactobacillus acidophilus
A better understanding of L. acidophilus from a genetic perspective is provided, and a frame for the biotechnological potentiality of this species is offered.
Comprehensive Scanning of Prophages in Lactobacillus: Distribution, Diversity, Antibiotic Resistance Genes, and Linkages with CRISPR-Cas Systems
It is shown that prophages are widely distributed among lactobacilli; however, intact prophage are more common in multihabitat species and display wide variations in genome feature, integration site, and genomic organization.
Evaluation of Tetracycline Resistance and Determination of the Tentative Microbiological Cutoff Values in Lactic Acid Bacterial Species
It is found that tet(M) and tet(W/N/W) are the most widely distributed tetracycline resistance genes in LAB, while the cutoff values for Lactiplantibacillus plantarum were re-established and could be used to better distinguish susceptible strains from strains with acquired resistance.
Development and Comparative Evaluation of a Novel Fermented Juice Mixture with Probiotic Strains of Lactic Acid Bacteria and Bifidobacteria
The results affirm that the proposed novel fermented mixture of Jerusalem artichoke, pineapple, pumpkin, spinach, and cucumber stands as a promising functional product to be placed in the beverage market.


Comparative Genomic and Functional Analysis of 100 Lactobacillus rhamnosus Strains and Their Comparison with Strain GG
The present study showed two distinctive geno-phenotypes in the L. rhamnosus species, which suggest an adaptation to stable nutrient-rich niches and adequate traits to a variable environment, such as the intestinal tract, in terms of nutrient resources, bacterial population density and host effects.
Correlation of Lactobacillus rhamnosus Genotypes and Carbohydrate Utilization Signatures Determined by Phenotype Profiling
From the analysis, candidate genes were identified that correlate with l-sorbose and α-methyl-d-glucoside utilization, and the proposed function of these genes could be confirmed by heterologous expression in a strain lacking the genes.
Genomic Diversity of Lactobacillus salivarius
In addition to proving difficult to predict from the gene content, EPS production levels correlated inversely with production of biofilms, a trait considered desirable in probiotic commensals, and two gene clusters for exopolysaccharide biosynthesis corresponded to regions of significant genomic diversity.
Comparative Genomic and Functional Analysis of Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus rhamnosus Strains Marketed as Probiotics
This study demonstrates that the two L. rhamnosus strains isolated from probiotic products are virtually identical to L. RhamnosUS GG and further highlights the differences between these and L. casei strains widely marketed as probiotics, in terms of genome content, mucus-binding and metabolic capacities, and host signaling capabilities.
Phenotypic and genomic diversity of Lactobacillus plantarum strains isolated from various environmental niches.
An extensive phenotypic and genomic diversity analysis was conducted to elucidate the molecular basis of the high flexibility and versatility of this species and lead to a better comprehension of niche adaptation and functionality of the organism.
Comparative genomics of Lactobacillus
The study selected a total of 20 genomes of various Lactobacillus strains for which complete genomic sequences have been reported and grouped the 20 strains into three main groups and defined core group genes present in all genomes of a single group, signature group genes shared in one group but absent in all other LactOBacillus genomes, and Group‐specific ORFans present incore group genes of one group and absent inall other complete genomes.
Comparative genomic analysis of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG reveals pili containing a human- mucus binding protein
It is concluded that the presence of SpaC is essential for the mucus interaction of L. rhamnosus GG and likely explains its ability to persist in the human intestinal tract longer than LC705 during an intervention trial.
Phylogenomics and comparative genomics of Lactobacillus salivarius, a mammalian gut commensal
It is found that multiple phylogenomic and non-phylogenomic methods used for reconstructing trees all converge on similar tree topologies, showing that different metrics largely agree on the evolutionary history of the species.
Lactobacillus paracasei Comparative Genomics: Towards Species Pan-Genome Definition and Exploitation of Diversity
The results of this genome content comparison were used, together with high-throughput growth experiments on various carbohydrates, to perform gene-trait matching analysis, in order to link the distribution pattern of a specific phenotype to the presence/absence of specific sets of genes.
Complete Genome Sequence of the Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus ATCC 53103
The finished and annotated genome sequence of L. rhamnosus ATCC 53103 is reported, one of the most widely used and well-documented probiotics.
