Culture independent methods for detection & enumeration of gut microflora Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Culture Independent Methods for Detection & Enumeration of Gut Microflora
  • 2. Introduction  Less than 25% of the intestinal – cultivated  Many bacteria have not been cultured yet  Molecular biology --independent techniques  16S rDNA used – specific primers and probes culture
  • 3. 1. Design of PCR Primers for DNA Amplification Specie or group specific primers – GIT  rDNA specific primers --- rapid & specific detection  Matsuki – Bifidobacteria in fecal samples  Common species  Bifidobacterium longum  Bifidobacterium catenulatum  Bifidobacterium adolescentis 
  • 4. 2. Design of Hybridization Probes Some probes --- Assessment Intestinal microbiota of Detection & quantification FISH/dot blot hybridization amlification – amplicons are labelled hyridized with samples  Common microbes in fecal samples After
  • 5. 3. PCR-ELISA  Combination of PCR and ELISA DNA – Labelled with digoxigenin – hybridized with probe immobilized in microtiter plate wells.  Amplified  Presence of hybridized DNA digoxigenin-targeted antibodies  Analysis of Bifidobacterium species –
  • 6. 4. Sequence Analysis of Randomly Amplified 16S rRNA Genes 16S rRNA genes amplification  Universal or group-specific primers  Cloning and sequencing of product DNA  Predominant species – Clostridium  Increases with age  Clostridium rRNA cluster XIVa – decrease with age – decrease in Ruminococcus obeum 
  • 7. 5. Temperature Gradient Gel Electrophoresis (TGGE) 16S rRNA genes amplification  Universal or group-specific primers – one has GC clamp – attached to 5 end of DNA – avoid complete dissociation of two DNA  Amplified products – seperated – TGGE  Predominant bands – sequenced – identity of most abundant microorganisms 
  • 8. 6. Denaturing High Performance Liquid Chromatography  PCR amplification of 16S rRNA  Seperation of amlified products – Denaturing HPLC  Seperated dyed  Detected – flourescent detecter products – flourescent
  • 9. 7. Terminal Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism  16S rRNA amplification – labelled and unlabelled primers – one end of product is labelled  PCR product endonucleases  Length of labeled terminal restriction fragments – capillary electrophoresis – digested with
  • 10. 8. Oligonucleotide Arrays  Specie specific probes – detection of predominant human intestinal bacteria – fecal samples  Rapid & accurate – thousands of bacteria – simultaneous detection
  • 11. 9. Relative Amount of Group or Specie-rRNA  Quantitative study – quantification of relative amount of each group with regard to total 16S rRNA in sample – specific probes  6 bacterial groups – 70% of total fecal RNA  Bacteroids, Prevotella – 37% of 16S rRNA
  • 12. 10. FISH FISH with different group specific probes  90% fecal bacteria – detected  Bacteroids, prevotella and Clostridium – higher number  Assessment of changes in levels of – predominant groups – consumption of probiotics  Effects of breast feeding – FISH – predominance of Bifidobacteria 
  • 13. 11. Quantitative Real-Time PCR Rapid, accurate  Quantitative technique  Characterization and comparision --healthy and hospitalized subjects  Different assays – developed  Green dye – fecal Bifidobacterium, Desulfovibrio SYBR
  • 14. 5 nuclease assay  TAQMAN probes –Bifidobacterium Lactobacillus  Probes labelled with flourescent lanthanide
  • 15. 12. Omics Metagenomics and Metaproteomics o Metagenomics – microbiota of large intestine Diversity of fecal microbiota –crohan’s disease o Metaproteomics – Intestinal microbiota in infants 
