Humans are colonized by a diverse collection of microbes, the largest numbers of which reside in the distal gut. The vast majority of humans coexist in a beneficial equilibrium with these microbes. However, disruption of this mutualistic relationship can manifest itself in human diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease. Thus the study of inflammatory bowel disease and its genetics can provide insight into host pathways that mediate host–microbiota symbiosis. Bacteria of the human intestinal… 
Functional profiling of the gut microbiome in disease-associated inflammation
TLDR
Functional profiling of the human microbiome using metagenomic and metatranscriptomic approaches is discussed, focusing on the implications for inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
Gut microbiota, host health, and polysaccharides.
TLDR
The roles of the gut microbiota in maintaining intestinal and immune system homeostasis and the relationship between gut microbiota and diseases are described and the contributions of polysaccharides, as the most abundant diet components in intestinal microbiota and host health are presented.
Compositional changes in human gut microbiota reveal a putative role of intestinal mycobiota in metabolic and biological decline during aging
BACKGROUND: Age-related alterations in the composition and function of gut microbiota may influence human health and disease mechanisms. However, connections between compositional changes in gut
Assessing the Intestinal Microbiota in the SHINE Trial
TLDR
The evidence for a link between the developing infant gut microbiota, infant feeding, EED, and stunting is reviewed, and the potential causal pathways relating these variables are discussed, by capitalizing on the longitudinal design and randomized interventions of the Sanitation Hygiene Infant Nutrition Efficacy trial in Zimbabwe.
Symbiosis as the way of eukaryotic life: The dependent co-origination
TLDR
Symbionts have also been found to constitute a second mode of genetic inheritance, providing selectable genetic variation for natural selection and develop as multi-genomic consortia/teams/ecosystems.
Interactions in the microbiome: communities of organisms and communities of genes
A central challenge in microbial community ecology is the delineation of appropriate units of biodiversity, which can be taxonomic, phylogenetic, or functional in nature. The term ‘community’ is
Modulation of Toll-like receptor ligands and Candida albicans-induced cytokine responses by specific probiotics.
TLDR
Specific probiotic strains exhibit cross-tolerance effects towards other inflammatory stimuli, especially C. albicans, which might have beneficial effects on gut inflammation.

Bacterial communities in digestive and excretory organs of cicadas
Bacteriocyte-associated symbionts are essential for the health of many sap-sucking insects, such as cicadas, leafhoppers and treehoppers, etc., but little is known about the bacterial community in

TLDR
Manipulation of gut microbiota can be used to alleviate disease conditions like obesity, inflammatory bowel disease, autism through establishment of healthy microbiota.

A pathobiont of the microbiota balances host colonization and intestinal inflammation.
TLDR
A protective role is revealed for the T6SS of Helicobacter hepaticus, a Gram-negative bacterium of the intestinal microbiota, that limits colonization and intestinal inflammation, and proposes that disruption of such balances contributes to human disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease and colon cancer.
Host-microbial symbiosis in the vertebrate gastrointestinal tract and the Lactobacillus reuteri paradigm
TLDR
It is argued that a mechanistic understanding of the microbial symbiosis in the vertebrate gut and its evolution will be important to determine how this relationship can go awry, and it may reveal possibilities by which the gut microbiome can be manipulated to support health.
A microbial symbiosis factor prevents intestinal inflammatory disease
TLDR
It is reported here that the prominent human symbiont Bacteroides fragilis protects animals from experimental colitis induced by Helicobacter hepaticus and that molecules of the bacterial microbiota can mediate the critical balance between health and disease.

TLDR
Most published mouse studies evaluating the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) therefore simply refer to gut flora as altered Schaedler flora (ASF), and monitoring of the gnotobiotic animals relied on examining the morphology of the microorganisms with a limited evaluation of the organisms, biochemical traits and growth characteristics.
An Immunomodulatory Molecule of Symbiotic Bacteria Directs Maturation of the Host Immune System
TLDR
During colonization of animals with the ubiquitous gut microorganism Bacteroides fragilis, a bacterial polysaccharide (PSA) directs the cellular and physical maturation of the developing immune system.
IgA response to symbiotic bacteria as a mediator of gut homeostasis.
TLDR
A gnotobiotic mouse model is developed where the microbiota is reduced to one bacterial species, and the antibody repertoire to a single, monoclonal IgA against the bacterium's capsular polysaccharide to underscore the adaptive immune system's critical role in establishing a sustainable host-microbial relationship.
Induction of Intestinal Th17 Cells by Segmented Filamentous Bacteria
The gastrointestinal tract of mammals is inhabited by hundreds of distinct species of commensal microorganisms that exist in a mutualistic relationship with the host. How commensal microbiota
The key role of segmented filamentous bacteria in the coordinated maturation of gut helper T cell responses.
TLDR
Systematic analysis of gnotobiotic mice indicated that colonization by a whole mouse microbiota orchestrated a broad spectrum of proinflammatory T helper 1 (Th1), Th17, and regulatory T cell responses whereas most tested complex microbiota and individual bacteria failed to efficiently stimulate intestinal Tcell responses.
Inducible Foxp3+ regulatory T-cell development by a commensal bacterium of the intestinal microbiota
TLDR
It is demonstrated that PSA is not only able to prevent, but also cure experimental colitis in animals, and co-opts the Treg lineage differentiation pathway in the gut to actively induce mucosal tolerance.
Beneficial effects of Bacteroides fragilis polysaccharides on the immune system.
TLDR
Polysaccharide A can provide protection in animal models of colitis through repression of pro-inflammatory cytokines associated with the Th17 lineage and the resulting immunomodulatory effects.
