Yeast Mannan Oligosaccharides: A Front-line Defense Mechanism for Pathogen Control

Bacterial adherence to host tissue is an important initial step in enabling gastrointestinal tract colonisation and infection. Adherence typically involves the interaction of complementary molecules on the surface of a bacteria with those of the host epithelium. Dr. Richard Murphy at Alltech, explains more about yeast mannan oligosaccharides.
