Shared Notes


  • [1.6
    - The abundance of Turicibacter is decreased upon oral administration of the periodontal bacterium, A actinomycetemcomitans, in mice.
    - The order Turicibacterales, family Turicibacteraceae, and genus Turicibacter were underrepresented in mice treated with oral Porphyromonas gingivalis
    - The abundance of Turicibacter correlates with the production of butyric acid, and an increase in butyrate has been associated with improved insulin sensitivity.
    - These findings suggest that the administration of periodontal bacteria may negatively affect insulin resistance by decreasing the abundance of Turicibacter in the gut, thereby decreasing insulin sensitivity
