Project description:Purpose: To understand the metabolic mechanism of Lactobacillus salivarius Ren in raffinose Methods: Samples of Lactobacillus salivarius Ren grown in glucose and raffinose were sequenced on the Illumina Hiseq platform. Three independent biological replicates were generated, including a total of six samples. Results: Raw data were firstly processed through in-house perl scripts to generate clean data, and then clean date were mapped to the reference genome, getting about 8-10 million total mapped reads per sample. Overall design: Lactobacillus salivarius Ren is cultured in MRS medium with carbon source as glucose and raffinose
Project description:The response to bile of Lactobacillus casei BL23 was investigated. Lactobacillus casei BL23 was grown in MRS medium at 37C without shaking until O.D. 595 nm. reached 0.5. The cultures were then two fold diluted with prewarmed MRS medium (control) or MRS supplemented with 0.2% bovine bile (treatment) and incubation continued for 45 min. Cells were then harvested and total RNA purified.
