Studies have shown that the members of the genus Lactobacillus
are intrinsically tolerant to low pH (Tannock, 2004), and their bile tolerance is due to the presence of bile salt hydrolase enzymes that specifically hydrolyze bile salts (McAuliffe et al.
In 2015, Terai et al selected, from dental plaque and tongue of healthy individuals, bacteria of the genus Lactobacillus
and Streptococcus which did not produce volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) or water-insoluble glucans, with high antibacterial activity against caries and periodontitis-causing bacteria as well as high activity of adherence to oral epithelial cells and hydroxyapatite in vitro.
We observed that the microorganisms which remained viable up to 360 days were bacteria of the genus Lactobacillus
Among the genus Lactobacillus
, the identified species and their respective strains include Lb.
Clinical trials have shown that bacteria of the genus Lactobacillus
, in particular, when consumed orally daily are especially effective at establishing and maintaining healthy vaginal microflora.
In healthy women, most or all vaginal bacteria belonged to two or three species of the genus Lactobacillus
, Fredricks and Marrazzo found.
Investigators found the dominant non-starter lactic acid bacteria in cheddar cheese are from the genus Lactobacillus
Ultimately, they were identified as 17 species and all belonged to genus Lactobacillus
, in contrast to previous research.
4], six isolates belong to the genus Lactobacillus
, which can be mesophilic (SH10, SH12, SH13) or thermophiles (SH8, SH9, SH11).
This step is mediated by lactic acid bacteria, typically of the genus Lactobacillus
, Gaenzle said.
Look for products containing live active cultures of bacteria in the genus Lactobacillus
From the twenty strains, eight belonged to the genus Lactococcus and two to the genus Lactobacillus
, all ten strains were tested for selection as starter cultures and were carried out tests like: acidification activity, antibiotic resistance, detergent resistance and strains compatibility.
However, other studies with dogs demonstrated that the dietary supplementation with probiotics containing bacteria of the genus Lactobacillus
promoted higher dry matter ADC (SWANSON et al.
For instance, a general recommendation is to look for probiotic products containing bacteria in the genus Lactobacillus
