Summary of "In Vitro Digestibility of Galactooligosaccharides: Effect of the Structural Features on Their Intestinal Degradation."

Small intestinal brush border membrane vesicles from pig were used to digest galactooligosaccharides from lactose (GOS) and from lactulose (OsLu). Dissimilar hydrolysis rates were detected after digestion. Predominant glycosidic linkages and monomeric composition affected the resistance to intestinal digestive enzymes. The β(1→3) GOS mixture was the most susceptible to hydrolysis (50.2%), followed by β(1→4) (34.9%), whereas β(1→6) linkages were highly resistant to digestion (27.1%). Monomeric composition provided a better resistance in β(1→6) OsLu (22.8%) compared to β(1→6) GOS (27.1%). This was also observed for β-galactosyl fructoses and β-galactosyl glucoses, where the presence of fructose provided higher resistance to digestion. Thus, the resistance to small intestinal digestive enzymes highly depends upon the structure and composition of prebiotics. Increasing knowledge in this regard could contribute to the future synthesis of new mixtures of carbohydrates, highly resistant to digestion and with potential to be tailored prebiotics with specific properties, targeting, for instance, specific probiotic species.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Human colonic ADENOCARCINOMA cells that are able to express differentiation features characteristic of mature intestinal cells, such as ENTEROCYTES. These cells are valuable in vitro tools for studies related to intestinal cell function and differentiation.

The extent to which an RNA molecule retains its structural integrity and resists degradation by RNASE, and base-catalyzed HYDROLYSIS, under changing in vivo or in vitro conditions.

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.

A condition caused by the lack of intestinal PERISTALSIS or INTESTINAL MOTILITY without any mechanical obstruction. This interference of the flow of INTESTINAL CONTENTS often leads to INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION. Ileus may be classified into postoperative, inflammatory, metabolic, neurogenic, and drug-induced.

Dilatation of the intestinal lymphatic system usually caused by an obstruction in the intestinal wall. It may be congenital or acquired and is characterized by DIARRHEA; HYPOPROTEINEMIA; peripheral and/or abdominal EDEMA; and PROTEIN-LOSING ENTEROPATHIES.
