Contribution of Inhibitory Metabolites and Competition for Nutrients to Colonization Resistance against Clostridioides difficile by Commensal Clostridium

[Review of ]. MICROORGANISMS, 9(2).

By: A. Reed n & C. Theriot n

author keywords: Clostridioides difficile; Clostridium scindens; secondary bile acids; deconjugation; dehydroxylation; epimerization; short-chain fatty acids; proline; hydroxyproline
TL;DR: Understanding the mechanisms of colonization resistance against C. difficile is important for elucidating the mechanisms by which the pathogen is able to colonize the gut after antibiotics. (via Semantic Scholar)

Clostridioides difficile carriage in animals and the associated changes in the host fecal microbiota


By: R. Thanissery n, M. McLaren n, A. Rivera n, A. Reed n, N. Betrapally n, T. Burdette n, J. Winston n, M. Jacob n, B. Callahan n, C. Theriot n

author keywords: C. difficile; C. hiranonis; Microbiome; Ribotype; Antibiotic resistance; Animal; Canine; Equine; Feline
MeSH headings : Animals; Anti-Bacterial Agents / pharmacology; Bacterial Toxins / genetics; Bacterial Toxins / metabolism; Bacterial Typing Techniques; Cats; Chlorocebus aethiops; Clostridioides difficile / classification; Clostridioides difficile / drug effects; Clostridioides difficile / physiology; Clostridium Infections / epidemiology; Clostridium Infections / microbiology; Clostridium Infections / veterinary; Coculture Techniques; Dogs; Feces / microbiology; Female; Gastrointestinal Microbiome; Horses; Hospitals, Animal; Host-Pathogen Interactions; Male; Microbial Interactions; Microbial Sensitivity Tests; North Carolina; Polymerase Chain Reaction; Prevalence; RNA, Ribosomal, 16S; Ribotyping; Risk Factors; Tertiary Healthcare; Vero Cells
TL;DR: Experimental results showed a clear antagonistic relationship between the two strains in vitro, suggesting that commensal Clostridia might play a role in colonization resistance against C. difficile in different hosts. (via Semantic Scholar)
