Evidence is accumulating regarding the potential long-term impact of the early gut microbiota on host health. However, our current understanding of the early microbiome of cattle, a domestic livestock species that plays an important role in meeting the increasing demand for high quality protein,...
The gut microbiome and its potential role in the development and function of newborn calf gastrointestinal tractDownload
A diverse microbial population colonizes the sterile mammalian gastrointestinal tract during and after the birth. There is increasing evidence that this complex microbiome plays a crucial role in the development of the mucosal immune system and influences newborn health. Microbial colonization is...
Potential regulatory role of microRNAs in the development of bovine gastrointestinal tract during early lifeDownload
This study aimed to investigate the potential regulatory role of miRNAs in the development of gastrointestinal tract (GIT) during the early life of dairy calves. Rumen and small intestinal (mid-jejunum and ileum) tissue samples were collected from newborn (30 min after birth; n = 3), 7-day-old...
Association between commensal bacterial establishment and mucosal innate immune genes expression throughout the gastro-intestinal tract of dairy calvesDownload
Communication between commensal microbes and host in gastro-intestinal tract (GIT) has been proven to be vital for host immune responses and health maintenance. This study investigated the relationship between bacterial community and mucosal innate immune gene expression throughout the GIT of...
