Gut Fungus ITS Sequencing Service


Gut Fungus ITS Sequencing Service

The fungal microbiome, identified as the mycobiome, is an element of the human microbiome that has not been widely investigated. Even though mycobiota makes up a small fraction of the whole human microbiome, researchers have been able to start to reveal the identity of our fungal commensals and assess their function in human health and illness using culture-independent methods using high-throughput sequencing methodologies.

In the guts of many mammals, including humans, mice, rats, pigs, and many ruminant and non-ruminant herbivores, fungi have been identified. In many human illnesses, including inflammatory bowel disease, graft versus host disease, Hirschsprung-associated enterocolitis, colorectal cancer, and developed progression of hepatitis B virus infections, fungi have been involved in the exacerbation. The declared appearance of fungi as a portion of the human microbiome, and their prospective position as contributors to health and disease, showcase the need for a more profound characterization of the healthy human microbiome. Understanding a healthy mycobiome will help recognize disease-contributing fungal organisms in studies and better classify health-important fungal bacterial relationships.

Fungus ITS Amplicon Sequencing

DNA Barcoding is one of the techniques regarded to be a new concept for identifying unidentified fungal samples quickly and accurately. The nuclear DNA (rDNA) area of the Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) has been the most sequenced area for identifying fungal taxonomy at the stage of species, and even within species. A highly polymorphic, non-coding region with sufficient taxonomic components is the ITS area. It is consequently able to differentiate sequences into levels of species. Although a few restrictions still hinder the ribosomal ITS as a universal barcode marker for fungi, the ITS will persist as the key choice for fungal detection. The search has already begun for substitute areas as a DNA marker to enhance fungal recognition, particularly in particular heredities.

Creative Proteomics provides gut fungus profiling services at high depth with high precision to meet the needs of studying population genetics and microbial profiles in the gastrointestinal tract, in order to research into biodiversity within and interaction between these microbes and human bodies. Our ITS amplicon sequencing-based fungus profiling protocol uses oligonucleotide probes designed to target and capture regions of interest – generally hypervariable regions of conserved genes or intergenic regions, followed by next-generation sequencing to meet the goals of efficient genetic variant identification and characterization by comparing against microbial databases and bioinformatic analysis.
