Clinical And Mechanistic Insights Into Novel Probiotic Functions And Formulations, Jordan Bisanz Jul 2015

Clinical And Mechanistic Insights Into Novel Probiotic Functions And Formulations, Jordan Bisanz

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Using a combination of hypothesis and discovery based approaches, the goal of this thesis was to better describe novel probiotic functions and their mechanisms while striving to better understand the effect of formulation on Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis, Lactobacillus paracasei and L. rhamnosus.

Using RNA-Seq, a bacterial metatranscriptome analysis of a commonly consumed probiotic yogurt showed that the organisms adapted to storage time and flavor additions. This led to the discovery that in addition to the probiotic health benefits, members of the L. casei group (L. rhamnosus and L. paracasei) produce volatile sulfur compounds mediated by a novel sulfur/taurine ...
