Abstract

To model the colonization of a novel host by fleas, Synosternus cleopatrae and Xenopsylla ramesis, we established experimental lines maintained for 15 generations on a principal or a novel host (either co-occurring with a flea or not). We compared the blood meal size and the energy expended for...

Abstract

Prebiotic oligosaccharides are widely used as human and animal feed additives for their beneficial effects on the gut micro-biota. However, there are limited data to assess the direct effect of such functional foods on the transcriptome of intestinal epithelial cells. The purpose of this study is...

Abstract

The scarce literature about the effect of meal-factors have on lipids digestibility encouraged the present study, in which olive oil was co-digested with naturally fat-free matrices that were rich in carbohydrate (potato and bread) or protein (degreased fresh cheese, hake and turkey) in single,...

Abstract

The quickly expanding field of plant-based food, generally uses protein concentrates or isolates as protein source. It is however not clear to what extent the intensive processing of these raw materials affects their digestibility. We here report on the in vitro gastric digestibility of the...
