Intestinal lactic acid bacteria from Muscovy duck as potential probiotics that alter adhesion factor gene expression

Z. L. Xie, Bai, D. P., Xie, L. N., Zhang, W. N., Huang, X. H., and Huang, Y. F., Intestinal lactic acid bacteria from Muscovy duck as potential probiotics that alter adhesion factor gene expression, vol. 14, pp. 12262-12275, 2015.

The purpose of this study was to assess the suitability of lactic acid bacteria (LABs) isolated from Muscovy duck as a potential probiotic. Isolates were identified by targeted polymerase chain reaction and assessed in vitro for probiotic characteristics such as autoaggregation; surface-charge; hydrophobicity; tolerance to acidic pH, bile salts and protease; and expression of genes involved in Caco-2 cell adhesion.
