Transformation of, and Heterologous Protein Expression in, Lactobacillus agilis and Lactobacillus vaginalis Isolates from the Chicken Gastrointestinal Tract

Stephenson, David; Moore, Robert J; Allison, Gwen


Lactobacilli are naturally found in the gastrointestinal tract of chickens, and there is interest in utilizing autochthonous strains for the delivery of therapeutic proteins. Previously we identified three chicken-derived Lactobacillus strains, Lactobacillus agilis La3, Lactobacillus vaginalis Lv5, and Lactobacillus crispatus Lc9, which persist in the gastrointestinal tract of chickens fed either a commercial or high-protein diet. In the current study, we investigated the ability to...[Show more]
