Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is the second edition of “Redox in Microorganisms”( https://www.mdpi.com/topics/Redox_Microorganisms). The mechanisms by which microorganisms fight oxidative stress are essential for their survival in different environments. These include a large arsenal of molecular strategies to prevent or repair the oxidation of proteins, lipids, or nucleic acids, including antioxidants or enzymes that may rescue different vital components from irreversible oxidation. The molecular factors involved in these processes are relevant for pathogenesis, bioremediation, or industrial microbiology. Therefore, the study of redox biology in microorganisms is providing new insights into very diverse fields, and their translational potential is rapidly increasing. We invite you to submit your latest research findings or a review article on this special topic, which focuses on any aspect of the redox biology of microorganisms. We look forward to your contribution.

The redox potential plays a critical role in sustaining the stability of gut microbiota. This study measured the fecal redox potential in healthy and diarrheal pigs using direct and dilution methods and investigated their correlation with microbiota. The results showed that the fluctuations in the redox potential of healthy pig feces were consistent using two different methods and the two methods are equivalent based on an equivalence test. The redox potential was positively correlated with the number of fungi and negatively related to the total bacteria. The relative or absolute abundances of many bacteria at the phyla and genus levels were associated with redox potential. In diarrheal pigs, the potentiometric trends of the two methods demonstrated an opposing pattern and the correlation with total bacteria was reversed. Precipitously elevated redox potential was detected post-diarrhea using dilution methods. The absolute abundance of Escherichia-Shigella and Fuurnierella was positively correlated with redox potential, while both relative and absolute abundances of Limosilactobacillus were positively correlated. These results suggest that both methods are suitable for detecting gut redox potential in healthy pigs, while the dilution method is more suitable for diarrheal pigs. The findings on the correlation of Limosilactobacillus, Prevotella, and Escherichia-Shigella with redox potential offer novel insights for targeted modulation of intestinal health. Full article
