[16] The RA patients had significantly less bifidobacteria and bacteria of the Bacteroides-Porphyromonas- Prevotella group, Bacteroides fragilis subgroup, and Eubacterium rectale-Clostridium coccoides group Toivanen et al.
Among others, Bacteroides, Bifidobacterium, Propionibacterium, Eubacterium, Lactobacillus, Clostridium, Roseburia, and Prevotella are all remarkable SCFA producers [37].
The following species were eliminated: Gram(+) anaerobes: Clostridium sporogenes, Eubacterium saburreum, and Lactobacillus fermentum, and Gram(-) anaerobes: Bacteroides ovatus, Bacteroides uniformis, Fusobacterium mortiferum, and Prevotella oralis, as well as Gram(+) aerobic bacterium Staphylococcus aureus MSSA.
Purification and characterization of a highly thermostable glucose isomerase produced by the extremely thermophilic eubacterium Thermotoga maritima.
The similarity of 16S rRNA gene sequences is 99% and 94% respectively between this bacterium and Eubacterium limosum Butyribacterium methylotrophicum which can convert H2/CO2 into acetate through Acetyl-CoA pathway (Li et al.
El espectro antimicrobiano de los ionoforos puede deducirse del hecho que bacterias productoras de [H.sub.2] y formato (Lachnospira multiparus, Ruminococcus albus y Ruminococcus flavefaciens), de butirato (Butyrivibrio fibrisolvens, Eubacterium cellulosolvens y Eubacterium rumininantium), de lactato (Lactobacillus ruminis, Lactobacillus vitulinus y Streptococcus bovis) y de amoniaco (Clostridium aminophilum, Clostridium sticklandii y Peptostreptococcus anaerobius) son susceptibles a los ionoforos, mientras que bacterias productoras de succinato y propionato (Anaerovibrio lipolytica, Fibrobacter succinogenes, Megasphaera elsdenii, Prevotella ruminicola, Selenomonas ruminantium, Succinimonas amylolytica y Succinivibrio dextrinosolvens) son resistentes (62).
The comparison tests were made on real data sets, using respectively 16 jobs to select probes for the genus group "Citrobacter" (Figure 3), 8 jobs to select jobs for the genus group "Haemophilus" (Figure 4), and finally using 4 jobs to select jobs for 3 genus groups: "Citrobacter" "Eubacterium," and "Haemophilus"(Table 2).
One study reported finding much higher percentages of anaerobic bacteria (64.8-85.7%) in the intestinal lining and contents of nonhibernating leopard frogs than aerobic bacteria (14.9-35.3%) when incubated at 25[degrees]C, but when incubated at 4[degrees]C, the populations shifted and aerobic bacteria (Bacillus, Streptococcus, Enterococcus, Vibrio groups, etc.) were predominant with anaerobic Clostridium, Eubacterium, and Bifidobacterium making up the majority (12.2-29.5%) of the anaerobic population (Banas, J.A.
Healthy people's feces were rich in Eubacterium, Roseburia and Bacteroides species.
