Abstract :

The aim of this work was to set up and validate an in vitro model to study a molecular response of an intestinal host cell line (HT29-MTX), to a non-pathogen microflora component We found that Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron strain VPI-5482 had the capacity to change a specific glycosylation process in HT29-MTX cells via a mechanism that involved a soluble factor. Differentiated HT29-MTX cells were grown in the presence of 20% of spent culture supernatant from the B. thetaiotaomicron during 10 days, Glycosylation processes were followed using a large panel of lectins and analysed using confocal microscopy, western blotting and flow cytometry techniques.
