2005; Eliot and Ong, 2002). 2 Cellular mechanisms of bacterial/mucosal crosstalk (reproduced by kind permission D. Kelly) A correctly functioning immune system requires exposure to a comprehensive and representative population of bacteria, if the host animal is to successfully develop the ability to identify benign materials from potentially dangerous ones. The role of commensal bacteria in the activation of immunity and the preservation of a suitable microbial flora in the gut is now well establised.

Interestingly, some of these bacterial groups have previously been associated with disease, although modern DNA analysis is revealing the increasing complexity of gut microflora. Combining microbial DNA profiling with functional studies defining specific responses to colonising bacteria allows better identification of microbes with immune-potentiating/modulating properties (see later chapter on analysis of microorganisms). Monitoring bacterial populations and immunity New molecular techniques have facilitated investigations into bacterial diversity in the gut.

Coli to the mucosal cells enables them to overcome the mechanical clearance of the intestine caused by peristalsis, and facilitates colonisation of the gastro-intestinal tract by these harmful organisms. Once the bacteria have colonised the gut, they start to produce the enterotoxins, which can be divided into two main classes: • Heat labile toxin characterised by a high molecular weight • Heat stable toxin characterised by a lower molecular weight The toxins inhibit the absorptive processes within the intestine, thereby increasing liquid levels in the lumen.
