Current Research: Assessment of dairy propionibacteria probiotic potential

  1. Adaptation to digestive stresses. Propionibacteria ability to adapt, survive and keep an active metabolism within the digestive tract is investigated in vitro and in vivo using an integrated approach (physiology, transcriptomics, proteomics)
  2. Beneficial impact on the gut mucosa. The impact of propionibacteria is studied with a particular interest in colon cancer cells (modulation of proliferation/apoptosis balance) and in immune system (immunomodulation, anti-inflammatory properties).
