TitleMutualism between gut microbiota and the host as revealed in a comparative study of breast-fed versus formula-fed infants.
Study TypeMetagenomics
Abstract Ongoing efforts are directed at understanding the mutualism between the gut microbiota and the host in breast-fed versus formula-fed infants. Due to the lack of tissue biopsies, no investigators have performed a global transcriptional analysis of the d .. [more]
Description In this study, we examined the host intestinal mRNA gene expression and microbial DNA profiles in full term 3 month-old infants exclusively formula fed (FF; n=6) or breast fed (BF; n=6) from birth to 3 months. Host mRNA microarray measurements were per .. [more]
