The human gastrointestinal tract is colonized by multitudes of microorganisms that exert beneficial effects on human health. Mounting evidence suggests that intestinal microbiota contributes to host resistance against enteropathogenic bacterial infection. However, molecular details that account for such an important role has just begun to be understood. The commensal microbes in the intestine regulate gut homeostasis through activating the development of host innate immunity and producing… 
Erratum to: Protective role of gut commensal microbes against intestinal infections
TLDR
Recent findings from gut microbiota research are highlighted to help broaden the knowledge of the intestinal ecosystem and thereby come up with a better strategy for combating enteropathogenic infection.
The role of γδ T cells in the interaction between commensal and pathogenic bacteria in the intestinal mucosa.
TLDR
The mechanisms of pathogen damage to biological barriers are reviewed and it is suggested that γδ T cells may link the interactions between commensal bacteria and pathogenic bacteria.
A single gene of a commensal microbe affects host susceptibility to enteric infection
TLDR
An atEc mutant defective in ROS degradation fails to facilitate V. cholerae infection when transplanted, suggesting that host infection susceptibility can be regulated by a single gene product of one particular commensal species.

GUT MICROBIOTA GUT MICROBIOTA: SUCCINCT OVERVIEW OF IMPACTS ON HUMAN PHYSIQUE AND CURRENT RESEARCH STATUS WITH FUTURE ASPECTS
TLDR
In this review, the succinct overview on gut microbe’s origin, behavior, functions, role in major human disease and the current exploration circumstance with next generation perspective is focused.
The Role of Gut Barrier Dysfunction and Microbiome Dysbiosis in Colorectal Cancer Development
TLDR
The interactive roles of gut-barrier dysfunction, microbiome dysbiosis, and exposure to endogenous toxins as another mechanism in CRC development are discussed, and how biomarkers of colonic mucosal barrier function may provide avenues for disease, prevention and detection are discussed.
Is a Fecal Microbiota Transplant Useful for Treating Inflammatory Bowel Disease?
TLDR
The fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is considered to revolutionize the therapy in IBD, considering the abnormal inflammatory response due to the complicated relationship between microbiota and the immune system.
Microbiota–host interactions shape ageing dynamics
TLDR
It is proposed that the evolution of vertebrate-specific immune adaptations may have enabled the establishment of highly diverse, species-specific commensal microbial communities, and how host–microbiota interactions are key to maintaining homeostasis despite external perturbations.

Microbiota-mediated colonization resistance against intestinal pathogens
TLDR
How immune- mediated colonization resistance against antibiotic-resistant intestinal pathogens is influenced by the composition of the commensal microbiota is discussed and recent advances characterizing the ability of different Commensal bacterial families, genera and species to restore colonization resistance to intestinal pathogens in antibiotic-treated hosts are reviewed.
Immune responses to gut microbiota-commensals and pathogens
TLDR
Recent advances in understanding of how host-microbiota interactions shape the immune system and how they affect the responses against pathogenic bacteria are described.
Control of pathogens and pathobionts by the gut microbiota
TLDR
The mechanisms that regulate the ability of the microbiota to restrain pathogen growth are complex and include competitive metabolic interactions, localization to intestinal niches and induction of host immune responses.

The role of the immune system in governing host-microbe interactions in the intestine
TLDR
Although the microbiota is required for intestinal immune development, immune responses also regulate the structure and composition of the intestinal microbiota, and recent advances in understanding of these complex interactions are discussed.

The use of germ-free animal models with selective colonization strategies combined with modern molecular techniques promises to clarify the molecular signals responsible for host-flora interactions in health and disease.
Role of the gut microbiota in defining human health
TLDR
The literature in adult and pediatric GI microbiome studies, the emerging links between microbial community structure, function, infection and disease, and the approaches to manipulate this crucial ecosystem to improve host health are reviewed.
Regulated Virulence Controls the Ability of a Pathogen to Compete with the Gut Microbiota
TLDR
It is shown that germ-free animals are unable to eradicate Citrobacter rodentium, a model for human infections with attaching and effacing bacteria, and pathogen colonization is controlled by bacterial virulence and through competition with metabolically related commensals.
