    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Lactobacillus plantarum is a versatile lactic acid bacterium that is encountered in a range of environmental niches, has a proven ability to survive gastric transit, and can colonize the intestinal tract of human and other mammals. Several studies describe the effects of L. plantarum consumption on human physiology. The availability of the complete genome sequence of L. plantarum WCFS1 makes it a suitable model to explore the molecular mechanisms underlying the targeted intestinal properties of this species. An increasing number of studies address the development of L. plantarum into an ingestible living vaccine. Furthermore, studies are emerging to determine the activity of L. plantarum in the human intestinal tract. This review discusses the studies of the safety and survival of L. plantarum in the human intestinal tract, the effects of this bacterium on the host and it provides an overview of the molecular studies addressing the activity of L. plantarum in the human gut environment
