Intestinal homeostasis is achieved, in part, by the integration of a complex set of mechanisms that eliminate pathogens and tolerate the indigenous microbiota. Drosophila melanogaster feeds on microorganism-enriched matter and therefore has developed efficient mechanisms to control ingested microorganisms. Regulatory mechanisms ensure an appropriate level of immune reactivity in the gut to accommodate the presence of beneficial and dietary microorganisms, while allowing effective immune… Expand
Homeostasis between gut-associated microorganisms and the immune system in Drosophila.
TLDR
A deeper understanding of the role of uracil in Drosophila immunity will provide additional insight into the molecular mechanisms underlying host-microbe symbiosis and dysbiosis. Expand
Regulatory mechanisms of microbial homeostasis in insect gut
TLDR
The role of physical defenses, the Duox‐ROS and Imd signaling pathways, the Janus kinase/signal transducers and activators of transcription signaling pathway, and intestinal symbiotic flora in the homeostatic maintenance of the insect gut microbiome is reviewed. Expand
Transient adult microbiota, gut homeostasis and longevity: Novel insights from the Drosophila model
TLDR
The latest findings demonstrating that the gut is a physiologically and histologically compartmentalized organ brought fresh perspectives to study the region‐specific nature of the interactions between the commensal microbes and the intestinal tissue, and consequences of these interactions on overall host biology. Expand
The multilayered innate immune defense of the gut
TLDR
The Drosophila gut innate immune response is tightly regulated to maintain the endogenous microbiota, while preventing infections by pathogenic microorganisms. Expand
Host-microbe interactions in the gut of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
Recent advances in this field are reviewed, focusing mainly on the relationships between microbes and epithelial cells in the intestinal tract where the host exposure to the external environment is most frequent. Expand
Microbiota, Gut Physiology, and Insect Immunity
Abstract This chapter aims to visualize insect gut as a life-sustaining organ that is resilient yet interactive with the changing environment to maintain its immunological and physiologicalExpand
Microbiomes as modulators of Drosophila melanogaster homeostasis and disease.
TLDR
This review highlights the major ways, in which D. melanogaster regulates microbial homeostasis, the consequences of disruptions to homestasis, and the different mechanisms, by which the microbiome interacts with its host. Expand
From pathogens to microbiota: How Drosophila intestinal stem cells react to gut microbes.
TLDR
This review summarizes the types of gut microbes found in Drosophila, mechanisms for their elimination, and provides an integrated view of the signaling pathways that regulate tissue renewal in the midgut. Expand
The Intestine of Drosophila melanogaster: An Emerging Versatile Model System to Study Intestinal Epithelial Homeostasis and Host-Microbial Interactions in Humans
TLDR
This review summarizes the current knowledge of the structure and functions of the Drosophila melanogaster intestine, asserting its validity as an emerging model system to study gut physiology, regeneration, immune defenses and host-microbiota interactions. Expand
Role of DUOX in gut inflammation: lessons from Drosophila model of gut-microbiota interactions
TLDR
Genetic studies on the Drosophila DUOX system and on gut-associated bacteria with a distinct ability to activate DUOX may provide critical information related to the homeostatic inflammation as well as etiology of chronic inflammatory diseases, which will enhance understanding on the mucosal inflammatory diseases frequently observed in the microbe-contacting epithelia of humans.

Bacterial-Derived Uracil as a Modulator of Mucosal Immunity and Gut-Microbe Homeostasis in Drosophila
TLDR
It is shown that bacterial-derived uracil acts as a ligand for dual oxidase (DUOX)-dependent reactive oxygen species generation in Drosophila gut and that theUracil production in bacteria causes inflammation in the gut. Expand
Dual oxidase in mucosal immunity and host-microbe homeostasis.
TLDR
Investigation of DUOX regulation in response to symbiotic or non-symbiotic bacteria and the in vivo consequences in host physiology will give a novel insight into the microbe-controlling system of the mucosa. Expand
Gut-microbiota interactions in non-mammals: what can we learn from Drosophila?
TLDR
Drosophila is believed to be becoming an ad hoc model system to dissect the mechanisms that cooperate to maintain intestinal homeostasis in higher eukaryotes, which may help to understand how an alteration of these finely tuned processes precipitates the inflammatory processes found in some inflammatory bowel diseases.

TLDR
It is shown that enterocytes damaged by pathogens, the microbiota of aging flies, or host-derived reactive oxygen species (ROS) are replaced under the control of multiple pathways by the compensatory proliferation of intestinal stem cells (ISCs). Expand
Coordination of multiple dual oxidase–regulatory pathways in responses to commensal and infectious microbes in drosophila gut
TLDR
A signaling network composed of complex positive and negative mechanisms that controlled the expression and activity of dual oxidase (DUOX), which 'fine tuned' the production of microbicidal reactive oxygen species depending on whether the gut encountered infectious or commensal microbes. Expand
big bang gene modulates gut immune tolerance in Drosophila
TLDR
It is suggested that septate junctions are required to maintain the subtle balance between immune tolerance and immune response in the Drosophila gut, which represents a powerful model to study inflammatory bowel diseases. Expand
Innate Immune Homeostasis by the Homeobox Gene Caudal and Commensal-Gut Mutualism in Drosophila
TLDR
It is shown that the intestinal homeobox gene Caudal regulates the commensal-gut mutualism by repressing nuclear factor kappa B–dependent antimicrobial peptide genes, and reveals that a specific genetic deficiency within a host can profoundly influence the gut commensAL microbial community and host physiology.

Impact of the Resident Microbiota on the Nutritional Phenotype of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
It is shown that elimination of the resident microbiota extends larval development and perturbs energy homeostasis and carbohydrate allocation patterns of of D. melanogaster, indicating that the resident microbiome promotes host nutrition and interacts with the regulation of host metabolism. Expand
Invasive and indigenous microbiota impact intestinal stem cell activity through multiple pathways in Drosophila.
TLDR
Results indicate that gut homeostasis is achieved by a complex interregulation of the immune response, gut microbiota, and stem cell activity. Expand
Drosophila intestinal response to bacterial infection: activation of host defense and stem cell proliferation.
TLDR
The data suggest that gut homeostasis is maintained through a balance between cell damage due to the collateral effects of bacteria killing and epithelial repair by stem cell division, and this study should prove to be a useful resource for such further studies. Expand
