Shared Notes


  • [1.155
    - The identified microbiome pattern of healthy ageing is characterized by a depletion of core genera found across most humans, primarily Bacteroides.
    - Retaining a high Bacteroides dominance into older age, or having a low gut microbiome uniqueness measure, predicts decreased survival in a 4-year follow-up.
  • [1.156
    - Patients with major depressive disorder showed a statistically significant overrepresentation of Bacteroides enterotype 2 compared to controls.
  • [1.135
    - Bacteroides is a common member of the gut microbiome and plays important, symbiotic roles, such as modulation and regulation of the immune system, maintenance of intestinal integrity, and carbohydrate digestion.
    - Bacteroides organisms are major producers of short-chain fatty acids, which have been shown to support host immune homeostasis both locally and systemically
  • - γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) production by human-derived Bacteroides is widespread, and there is a correlation between brain signatures of depression and fecal Bacteroides levels in patients with major depressive disorder.
  • [1.157
    - Bacteroides was negatively associated with advanced steatosis
    - Some species of Bacteroides have been associated with progression to advanced liver fibrosis
  • - Some Bacteroides species have been reported to be protective against MAFLD
  • [1.158
    - Bacteroides predominate with protein and animal fat consumption.
