Strip Steak: Bacterial Enzyme Removes Inflammation-Causing Meat Carbohydrates

University of California San Diego Health

When we eat red meat, the animal carbohydrate Neu5Gc is incorporated in our tissues, where it generates inflammation. UC San Diego researchers discovered how gut bacteria enzymes strip our cells of Neu5Gc, introducing the possibility of using the enzymes to reduce the risk of inflammatory diseases.

ORNL Develops Method to Customize Microbes for Better Biofuel Production

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Scientists at the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have demonstrated a method to insert genes into a variety of microorganisms that previously would not accept foreign DNA, with the goal of creating custom microbes to break down plants for bioenergy.

For gut microbes, not all types of fiber are created equal

Washington University in St. Louis

Certain human gut microbes with links to health thrive when fed specific types of ingredients in dietary fibers, according to a new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The work — conducted in mice colonized with human gut bacteria and using new technologies for measuring nutrient processing — is a step toward developing more nutritious foods based on a strategy of targeted enrichment of key members of gut microbial communities.

Microbiome May Be Involved in Mechanisms Related to Muscle Strength in Older Adults

Tufts University

New study suggests the gut microbiome has a role in mechanisms related to muscle strength in older adults. Researchers found differences in bacterial profiles of older adults with high and low physical function, bacterial and strength differences in mice colonized with fecal samples from the adults.

Periodontitis Bacteria Love Colon and Dirt Microbes

Georgia Institute of Technology

Mythbuster: The idea that bacterial collaborations within microbiomes, like in the mouth, have evolved to be generous and exclusive very much appears to be wrong. In an extensive experiment, they were possible between random microbes, and members of the same microbiome were stingy with each other.
