Shared Reference Notes

  • [1.1
    - Ane > increased Actinobacteria followed by Firmicutes and Proteobacteria, Cutibacterium,Staphylococcus and Corynebacterium.
    - C. acnes > major species in terms of mean abundance, followed by Staphylococcus epidermidis (S. epidermidis) and Staphylococcus hominis (S. hominis);
  • [1.28
    - Firmicutes harbor a significantly higher viral diversity than the other types of bacteria.
  • [1.29
    - 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).
  • [1.30
    - Animal-based regimen decreases the Firmicutes
  • - Shifting to a plant-based diet would increase Firmicutes population
  • [1.31
    - 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.
  • [1.32
    - Protein powder consumption > decrease in Lachnospiraceae, Roseburia, Blautia, Synergistales, Coprococcus, Lactobacillales, Bacilli, Bifidobacterium longum and Firmicutes.
    - Protein powder consumption > higher abundance of Bacteroidetes.
  • [1.33
    - At the phylum level, Firmicutes were the dominant phylum in 95% of all meconium samples (highest abundance observed in the VPT neonates as compared to PT and FT neonates); the second most dominant phylum was Bacteroidetes in 50% of all meconium samples.
  • [1.5
    - MC/CFS > microbiome alterations that were consistent with an increased inflammation of the gut, namely significantly increased Lactonifactor and Alistipes
    - in particular an increase of Alistipes and a decrease of butyrate-producer Faecalibacterium were considered as top biomarkers with potential diagnostic value
    - abundance of Bifidobacterium and Faecalibacterium to be reduced in the affected twin compared to the non-affected one.
    - Decreases in Faecalibacterium and increases in Coprobacillus were found.
    - Gut abundances of Coprobacillus, of Eggerthella and Blautia were best able to distinguish patients from controls.
    - Decreases in Faecalibacterium and increases in Coprobacillus were found.
    - distinct microbial pattern with decreased anti-inflammatory Firmicutes
  • [1.34
    - Firmicutes and Bacteroides are the main butyrate producing phyla
