Shared Notes

  • [1.26
    - Eubacterium rectale subspecies harboring flagellin-encoding genes were associated with a predominantly meat-based diet
  • - Two of the three E. rectale subspecies consistently harbored an accessory pro-inflammatory flagellum operon associated with lower gut microbiota community diversity, higher host BMI, and higher fasting blood insulin levels
  • [1.25
    -The E. rectale bacteria ferment sulfoquinovose via a metabolic pathway that we have only recently deciphered, producing, among other things, a sulfur compound, dihydroxypropane sulfonate or DHPS for short, which in turn serves as an energy source for other intestinal bacteria such as Bilophila wadsworthia. Bilophila wadsworthia ultimately produces hydrogen sulfide from DHPS via a metabolic pathway that was also only recently discovered,
  • [1.27
    - Eubacterium rectale, one of the most prevalent human gut bacteria, can produce lauroyl tryptamine.
    - Auroyl tryptamine is able to bind a human receptor that plays a key role in regulating the immune system and controlling inflammation.
