    Resilience of small intestinal beneficial bacteria to the toxicity of soybean oil fatty acids

    Sara C Di Rienzi et al.
    Comparisons between lactobacilli bacteria in the small intestine and those evolved in the lab reveal several modes of resistance to toxic fatty acids.

    Bacterial interspecies interactions modulate pH-mediated antibiotic tolerance

    Andrés Aranda-Díaz et al.
    Shifts in pH that result from metabolic interactions between members of the Drosophila gut microbiota were sufficient to modulate Lactobacillus plantarum tolerance to the antibiotics rifampin and erythromycin.

    Modeling transfer of vaginal microbiota from mother to infant in early life

    Martin Steen Mortensen et al.
    Modeling weighted transfer ratios enable statistical analysis of maternal–infant transfer at a more general level and can indicate whether any transfer is persistent, transient, or originates from alternate sources.

    Structural basis for the reaction cycle of DASS dicarboxylate transporters

    David B Sauer et al.
    Structures of multiple states of two dicarboxylate transporters explain the conformational changes needed for substrate import.

    Experimental evaluation of the importance of colonization history in early-life gut microbiota assembly

    Inés Martínez et al.
    Experiments in ex-germ-free mice establish a measurable effect of colonization history on gut microbiota assembly, illuminating a potential cause for the high levels of unexplained individuality in host-associated microbial communities.

    In vitro reconstitution of dynamically interacting integral membrane subunits of energy-coupling factor transporters

    Inda Setyawati et al.
    Integral membrane subunits of energy-coupling factor transporters associate with and dissociate from each other as part of the transport mechanism.
