  • gastrointestinal tract
  • Considering the high frequency at which B. breve is isolated from breast-fed infant feces, we postulated that some B. breve strains can more vigorously consume HMO and thus are enriched in the breast-fed infant gastrointestinal tract. (asm.org)
  • It is a microaerotolerant anaerobe and considered to be one of the earliest colonizers of the gastrointestinal tract of infants. (wikipedia.org)
  • glycosyl hydrolases
  • To examine this, a number of B. breve isolates from breast-fed infant feces were characterized for the presence of different glycosyl hydrolases that participate in HMO utilization, as well as by their ability to grow on HMO or specific HMO species such as lacto- N -tetraose (LNT) and fucosyllactose. (asm.org)
  • feces
  • These results provide a rationale for the predominance of this species in breast-fed infant feces and contribute to a more accurate picture of the ecology of the developing infant intestinal microbiota. (asm.org)
  • linkages
  • These α(1,4)-glycosidic linkages are further converted into digestion-resistant α(1,6)-glycosidic linkages, creating "iso" linkages between glucose moieties and forming Isomalto-oligosaccharide (IMO). (wikipedia.org)
  • Bacterial
  • Vaccination against Neisseria meningitidis, a leading cause of bacterial meningitis, can be costly because researchers must grow the bacterium in culture to isolate oligosaccharide antigens. (asbmb.org)
