Shared Notes


  • [1.23
    - Firmicutes harbor a significantly higher viral diversity than the other types of bacteria.
  • [1.24
    - Vitamin D deficiency produces intestinal dysbiosis, with a reduction of bacteria with anti-inflammatory properties (e.g., Firmicutes) and an increase in pathobiontic bacteria (e.g., Bacteroides and Proteobacteria).
  • [1.25
    - Animal-based regimen decreases the Firmicutes
  • - Shifting to a plant-based diet would increase Firmicutes population
  • [1.26
    - Another group of bacteria, named “heredipersistent”, appears to be ‘inherited’ within families.
    - These bacteria, which include Firmicutes, have a higher turnover rate than tenacious bacteria do. For this reason, re-infecting their human host is crucial for these microbes to persist in a specific individual.
    - The heredipersistent bacteria tend to be able to spread through spores, which would help transmission within a family.
