Notes


- During life, the numbers of bifidobacteria decrease from up to 90% of the total colon microbiota in vaginally delivered breast-fed infants to <5% in the colon of adults and they decrease even more in that of elderly.

- The dominant early colonizers of the normal infant gut are maternal fecal bacteria, mainly members of Bifidobacterium and Bacteroides (2)

Shared Notes


  • [1.1
    - Gamma aminobutyrate (GABA), a major CNS inhibitory neurotransmitter, is produced from Lactobacillus and is the first bacterium that is colonized with most vaginally born infants.
