Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Bacterial metabolites can reach distant organs, and in this issue of Immunity, Uchimura et al. (2018) show a fast systemic distribution of microbiota metabolites. This distribution is controlled by antibodies that accelerate bacterial transit through the small intestine, resulting in reduced local and systemic metabolite penetration and attenuation of immune responses.
