Yeast: how wines get made

If you enjoy wine, you have yeast to thank. This report summarizes the results of recent INRA research examining the origin, diversity, evolution, and artificial selection of yeasts, the microorganisms that make alcoholic fermentation possible.

New clue towards understanding why prion strain virulence varies depending on which cells are infected

Prion strains are more or less virulent depending on the population of cells they infect. The reason for these different virulence levels remains largely unknown. Researchers at INRA recently took a decisive step closer to explaining these variations. They observed that certain strains were favoured over others depending on the level of PrP protein, which forms the substrate of brain cells in mice. This research, published in the 23 January 2017 edition of Nature Communications, provides new clues to understanding why each prion strain targets specific cells in the nervous systems of mammals.

Microbiota: new insights on what happens to dietary fibre in the human gut

One of the major functions of our intestinal microbiota – which until recently was thought to reside only in the colon – is to break down dietary fibre (and namely complex polysaccharides). However, researchers from INRA working with CNRS1 used metagenomic screening to reveal fibrolytic potential in the ileum section of the small intestine. The results, published in Scientific Reports on 16 January 2017, shed new light on the function of fibre digestion and its impact on human health.
