Influence of lung CT changes in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on the human lung microbiome

PloS One

Marion EngelWolfgang Zu Castell

Abstract

Changes in microbial community composition in the lung of patients suffering from moderate to severe COPD have been well documented. However, knowledge about specific microbiome structures in the human lung associated with CT defined abnormalities is limited. Bacterial community composi...read more

Human Microbiota: Small Molecules

This feed focuses on small molecules produced by the human microbiota. Several small molecules representing each of the major metabolic classes have been identified and implicated in several biological processes including modulation of the immune system and antibiosis. Here is the latest research.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.

Gut Microbiota & Brain In Aging

Gut microbiota composition has been implicated in neuroinflammatory responses, as well as brain aging and brain-aging related diseases like amyloid neuropathies. Here is the latest research.

Chromosomal Abnormalities

Chromosome abnormalities can be classified as either structural or numerical. Numerical abnormalities include duplications or deletion of a pair of chromosomes, such as Down Syndrome. Structural abnormalities include missing, extra or switched parts of a chromosome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal abnormalities here.

Human Immune Variation: Genetics, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Gut Microbiota And Brain In Aging

Gut microbiota composition has been implicated in neuroinflammatory responses, as well as brain aging and brain-aging related diseases like amyloid neuropathies. Here is the latest research.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
