Glycans are sugars that can be attached to biological molecules through glycosylation. This feed focuses on the influence of microbial glycans on the immune system and in human diseases.
Baterial metabolism is how bacteria obtain the energy and nutrients they need to live and reproduce.The study of bacterial metabolism focuses on the chemical diversity of substrate oxidations and dissimilation reactions (reactions by which substrate molecules are broken down), which normally function in bacteria to generate energy. Also within the scope of bacterial metabolism is the study of the uptake and utilization of the inorganic or organic compounds required for growth and maintenance of a cellular steady state (assimilation reactions).

Bacterial protein structures can expedite the development of novel antibiotics. Here is the latest research on bacterial proteins and the resolution of their structures.
This feed focuses on cellular respiration in bacteria, known as bacterial respiration. Discover the latest research here.
Bacterial transport proteins facilitate active and passive transport of small molecules and solutes across the bacterial membrane. Here is the latest research.
Biofilms are adherent bacterial communities embedded in a polymer matrix and can cause persistent human infections that are highly resistant to antibiotics. Discover the latest research on Biofilms here.
Glycosylation disorders are typically associated with disruptions of early steps in glycan biosynthesis pathways. This feed focuses on the latest research on mechanisms and pathways underlying glycosylation disorders.
Phospholipids are the major component of cell membranes. This feed focuses on the role of gut microorganisms in phospholipid metabolism.
Microbes in the gut communicate with the central nervous system (CNS) via at least three parallel and interacting channels including endocrine, nervous, and immune signaling. Here is the latest research on the brain-gut-microbiome axis.
Gut microbiota has been implicated in neurodevelopment, neuroinflammatory responses, and neurological disorders. Here is the latest research on the role of gut microbiota in movement disorders.
