Evolutionary pressure drives gut microbiota–host coevolution and results in complex interactions between gut microbiota and neural development; however, the molecular mechanisms by which the microbiota governs host behavior remain obscure. Here, we report that colonization early in life is crucial for the microbiota to modulate brain development and behavior; later colonization or deletion of microbiota cannot completely reverse the behaviors. Microarray analysis revealed an association between… 

Regulation of Gut Microbiota Disrupts the Glucocorticoid Receptor Pathway and Inflammation-related Pathways in the Mouse Hippocampus

This study used isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantitation (iTRAQ)-based quantitative proteomic analysis to obtain proteomic profiles of the hippocampus in germ-free, colonized GF, and specific pathogen-free mice, and indicated that the glucocorticoid receptor signaling pathway and inflammation-related pathways were the most enriched disrupted pathways.

Gut microbiota regulates mouse behaviors through glucocorticoid receptor pathway genes in the hippocampus

The results indicated that the gut microbiota may lead to behavioral abnormalities in mice through the downstream pathway of the glucocorticoid receptor.

Extracellular Matrix and Oxidative Phosphorylation: Important Role in the Regulation of Hypothalamic Function by Gut Microbiota

It is suggested that regulation of ECM is a key mechanism shared by different gut microbiota and that inhibition of energy metabolism in the hypothalamus by gut microbiota derived from MDD patients is a potential mechanism of behavioral regulation and depression.

Integrated phosphoproteomic and metabolomic profiling reveals perturbed pathways in the hippocampus of gut microbiota dysbiosis mice

It is demonstrated that the spliceosome, never directly implicated in mental disorders previously, was a substantially neuronal function disrupted by gut microbiota dysbiosis, and the NCBP1 phosphorylation was identified as a novel pathogenic target.

Roles of Gut Microbiota in the Regulation of Hippocampal Plasticity, Inflammation, and Hippocampus-Dependent Behaviors

Genomic and neurochemical analyses revealed significant alterations in genes and amino acids in the hippocampus of AD subjects following a remarkable shift in the gut microbiota, which could be potentially applied to prevent or treat hippocampus-based memory impairment and neuropsychiatric disorders such as AD.

Hippocampus-specific regulation of long non-coding RNA and mRNA expression in germ-free mice

The effect of gut microbiota on the hippocampal lncRNA regulation is described for the first time to help in enhancing the overall knowledge about microbiota-gut-brain axis.

Microbial regulation of a lincRNA-miRNA-mRNA network in the mouse hippocampus.

This study provides clues for understanding the molecular basis of gut microbiota-brain interactions in depressive- and anxiety-like behaviors and lincRNA0926-miR-190a-5p-Celf4 interactions may play a pivotal role in this regulatory network.

Proteomics analysis of the gut–brain axis in a gut microbiota-dysbiosis model of depression

It is suggested that gut microbiota induced the alteration of protein expression levels in multiple tissues of the gut–brain axis in mice with depression-like phenotype, and these changes of the PFC and liver were model specific compared to chronic stress models.

Commensal Microbiota Regulation of Metabolic Networks During Olfactory Dysfunction in Mice

It is found that the absence of commensal microbiota was able to influence olfactory function and the metabolic signatures of OBs, with 38 metabolites presenting significant differences between the two groups.



Normal gut microbiota modulates brain development and behavior

It is demonstrated that germ free (GF) mice display increased motor activity and reduced anxiety, compared with specific pathogen free (SPF) mice with a normal gut microbiota, suggesting that the microbial colonization process initiates signaling mechanisms that affect neuronal circuits involved in motor control and anxiety behavior.

Postnatal microbial colonization programs the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal system for stress response in mice

Exposure to microbes at an early developmental stage is required for the HPA system to become fully susceptible to inhibitory neural regulation, and results suggest that commensal microbiota can affect the postnatal development of the Hpa stress response in mice.

Host microbiota constantly control maturation and function of microglia in the CNS

It is determined that short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), microbiota-derived bacterial fermentation products, regulated microglia homeostasis and mice deficient for the SCFA receptor FFAR2 mirroredmicroglia defects found under GF conditions, suggesting that host bacteria vitally regulate microglian maturation and function.

Mind-altering microorganisms: the impact of the gut microbiota on brain and behaviour

The emerging concept of a microbiota–gut–brain axis suggests that modulation of the gut microbiota may be a tractable strategy for developing novel therapeutics for complex CNS disorders.

Microbiota and host determinants of behavioural phenotype in maternally separated mice.

It is demonstrated that MS-induced changes in host physiology lead to intestinal dysbiosis, which is a critical determinant of the abnormal behaviour that characterizes this model of early-life stress.

Gut microbiome remodeling induces depressive-like behaviors through a pathway mediated by the host’s metabolism

It is demonstrated that dysbiosis of the gut microbiome may have a causal role in the development of depressive-like behaviors, in a pathway that is mediated through the host’s metabolism.

Role of the gut microbiota in inflammatory bowel disease pathogenesis: what have we learnt in the past 10 years?

Advances in the understanding of microbial involvement in IBD pathogenesis over the past 10 years are reviewed and insight is offered into how this will shape the therapeutic management of the disease in the coming years.

The microbiome-gut-brain axis during early life regulates the hippocampal serotonergic system in a sex-dependent manner

It is demonstrated that CNS neurotransmission can be profoundly disturbed by the absence of anormal gut microbiota and that this aberrant neurochemical, but not behavioural, profile is resistant to restoration of a normal gut flora in later life.
