Abstract

By using cryo-scanning electron microscopy and quantification with lectin-conjugated probes, we have detected the production of exopolysaccharides (EPS) in Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis in the presence of bile. In addition, the expression of gtf01207, which codifies a putative priming glycosyltransferase involved in EPS synthesis, was induced by bile.
