stability of microbiota facilitated by host immune regulation: informing probiotic strategies to manage amphibian disease.microbial communities can augment host immune responses and probiotic therapies are under development to prevent or treat diseases of humans, crops, livestock, and wildlife including an emerging fungal disease of amphibians, chytridiomycosis. however, little is known about the stability of host-associated microbiota, or how the microbiota is structured by innate immune factors including antimicrobial peptides (amps) abundant in the skin secretions of many amphibians. thus, conservation medicine ...201424489847
metabolites from microbes isolated from the skin of the panamanian rocket frog colostethus panamansis (anura: dendrobatidae).the panamanian rocket frog colostethus panamansis (family dendrobatidae) has been affected by chytridiomycosis, a deadly disease caused by the fungus batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (bd). while there are still uninfected frogs, we set out to isolate microbes from anatomically distinct regions in an effort to create a cultivable resource within panama for potential drug/agricultural/ecological applications that perhaps could also be used as part of a strategy to protect frogs from infections. to u ...202033065987
