Microbial ecology perturbation in human IgA deficiency - Science


Science
We show that human IgA deficiency is not associated with massive quantitative perturbations of gut microbial ecology. Metagenomic analysis highlights an expected pathobiont expansion but a less expected depletion in some typically beneficial symbionts ...

te our intestinal microbes - Science


Science
A mystery of immunology, microbiology, and host-microbial mutualism has been the difficulty in determining the behavior and function of secretory (S) immunoglobulin A (IgA) (SIgA) and why humans with an IgA deficiency are normally healthy. A new paper ...
