Intestinal fucose as a mediator of host-microbe symbiosis.

Abstract

Fucose is an L-configuration sugar found abundantly in the mammalian gut. It has long been known to be induced there by the presence of bacteria, but only recently have some of the molecular mechanisms behind this process been uncovered. New work suggests that fucose can have a protective role in both gut-centered and systemic infection and inflammation… (More)
