Example text

Species from the genus Bacteroides alone constitute about 30 % of all bacteria in the gut, suggesting that this genus is especially important in the functioning of the host (Eckburg et al. 2005). The currently known genera of fungi which harbor gut flora include Candida, Saccharomyces, Aspergillus, and Penicillium. Archaea constitute another large class of gut flora which are important in the metabolism of the bacterial products of fermentation (Guarner and Malagelada 2003). It is becoming clear that the microbiota normally has a balanced compositional signature that confers health benefits and that a disruption of this balance confers disease susceptibility (Cryan and O’Mahony 2011).

It has been observed that decreased intestinal microflora increases antigen transport across gastrointestinal mucosa, which is the primary interface between the external environment and the immune system. This suggests that the normal gut microflora is important in maintaining gut defenses.
