Abstract: Under homeostatic conditions, the commensal microbes of the microbiota protect themselves and their host against enteric pathogens through colonization resistance. Colonization resistance comprises of three key defense mechanisms: microbial release of antimicrobials, crowding out through competition for nutrients and/or through the microbial release of molecules to stimulate the host imm... read more
