Stress Responses of Lactic Acid Bacteria

Chapter 14 The stress response of bifidobacteria

Marco Ventura, Abelardo Margolles, Francesca Turroni, Aldert L. Zomer, G de los Reyes-Gavilan, Douwe van Sinderen

Many different bifidobacterial species constitute a key component of the human gut microbiota due to their perceived health-promoting role, which they elicit at the site of their natural habitat, the large intestine. Hence, such bifidobacteria represent a growing area of interest with respect to their genetics, genomics, and molecular ecology. This chapter will present the current knowledge of the molecular players that allow bifidobacteria to cope with heat, osmotic, acid, and bile salt stress.
