Metagenomics of the human intestinal tract: from who is there to what is done there

Abstract

The human gastro-intestinal tract is colonized by 10(6)-10(14) microorganisms from the three domains, eukaria, archaea and bacteria that are collectively referred as the human gut microbiota. Gut microbiota actively contributes to the digestion of the nutrients, mainly the fibers otherwise undigested by the host, and participate to the host capacity of energy recovery from food. It plays also a key role in gut homeostasis, impacting on its barrier function and regulating the immune and metabolic systems. The target of this review is the diet-microbiota-host immune response triad. Starting from the current knowledge based on intestinal metagenomics, we point out on the role of food in shaping gut microbiota composition and functions, which is therefore mirrored in its healthful or deleterious effect on host immune response.
