Diverse galactooligosaccharides consumption by bifidobacteria: implications of β-galactosidase--LacS operon.

Abstract

Galactooligosaccharides (GOS) possess prebiotic properties that specifically increase the number of bifidobacteria in the human intestine, thus giving health benefits to the host. Although the bifidogenic effect of GOS has been demonstrated in numerous studies, the utilization of GOS by specific bifidobacteria remains unclear. The goal of our study was to… (More)
