Co-feeding EHEC with Enterococcus faecalis Symbioflor(®) significantly increased the worms' lifespan. The transcriptome of EHEC grown in vitro with or without Symbioflor(®) was analyzed using RNA-seq. The analysis revealed downregulation of several virulence-associated genes in the presence of Symbioflor(®), including virulence key genes (e.g., LEE, flagellum, quorum-sensing). The downregulation of the LEE genes was corroborated by lux-transposon mutants. Upregulated genes included acid response genes, due to a decrease in pH exerted by Symbioflor(®). Further genes indicate cellular stress in EHEC (e.g. prophage/mobile elements involved in excision, cell lysis, and cell division inhibition). Thus, the observed protection of C. elegans during an EHEC infection by the probiotic Symbioflor(®) is suggested to be caused by triggering concomitant transcriptomic changes. To verify the biological relevance of this modulation, exemplary genes found to be influenced by Symbioflor(®) were knocked out (fliD, espB, Z3136, Z3917, and L7052). The lifespan of nematodes changed when using knock-outs as food source and the effect could be complemented in trans. In summary, Symbioflor(®) appears to be a protective probiotic in the nematode model.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Neuhaus, Klaus</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
