Abstract
The human gut is colonized with a wide variety of microorganisms, including species, such as those belonging to the bacterial genus Bifidobacterium, that have beneficial effects on human physiology and pathology1, 2, 3. Among the most distinctive benefits of bifidobacteria are modulation of host defence responses and protection against infectious diseases4, 5, 6. Nevertheless, the molecular mechanisms underlying these effects have barely been elucidated. To investigate these mechanisms, we used mice associa
