Plantarum The ability of a microorganism to develop biofilm in the gut environment plays a role for its persistence in the colon, being therefore considered a prerequisite for good performing probiotic strains (Ahrne and Hagslatt 2011). Development of L. 0. 0, no significant variation was 4 Discussion The gut microbiota is undoubtedly important in supporting a functional yet balanced immune system; processes leading to this balance can be emulated by transiently colonizing the gastrointestinal tract with appropriate strains of microbes that are delivered orally as probiotics and that influence the host microbiota and immune functions of the immune cells associated with the gut (Abreu et al.

HBDs are expressed in various tissues throughout the body; the best characterized gut defensin is the HBD-2, an inducible peptide, synthesized and secreted by the epithelium, with a strong antimicrobial activity (Vora et al. 2004). Unlike HBD-1, which is produced constitutively, HBD-2 is expressed after adequate stimulation by cytokines and/or bacterial components in epithelial tissues and mononuclear phagocytes. Some probiotic lactobacilli have been shown to induce HBD-2, but they are not affected by the antimicrobial effect of HBD-2, which appear to be specific for pathogens (Schlee et al.
