The butyrate revival. Short chain fatty acids as key mediators of gut microbiota

Pr Hervé Blottière,Photo the Director of Research at INRA, the French National Research Institute for Agricultural and Food Research, will join the 4th Congress on Targeting Microbiota and present his research topic of "The butyrate revival. Short chain fatty acids as key mediators of gut microbiota".

The following questions will be discussed during the congress:

  1. Is depletion of butyrate metabolic pathway genes in gut microbiome a common trait of  disease-associated dysbiosis?
  2. Can we consider short chain fatty acids as essential cell-signaling modulators in host cells through Lysine/Histone Deacetylase inhibition and G-protein coupled receptor activation ?
  3. What is the effect of SCFA on the intestinal immune cells ?
