Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) play a key role in promoting health and preventing diseases because of their beneficial effects, such as antimicrobial activities, modulating immune responses, maintaining the gut epithelial barrier and antioxidant capacity. However, the mechanisms with which LAB relieve oxidative stress and intestinal injury induced by diquat in vivo are poorly understood. In the present study, Pediococcus pentosaceus ZJUAF-4 (LAB, ZJUAF-4), a selected probiotics strain with strong antioxidant capacities, was appointed to evaluate the efficiency against oxidative stress in diquat-induced intestinal injury of mice.
