Notable bacterial taxa

Taxon
(Click to explore)
Description
Muribaculaceae This family was a major bacterial component of mouse gastrointestinal tract, and previously known as S24-7 group (Lagkouvardos et al., 2019).
Arthromitus This Candidatus genus is a key regulator of mouse T cells and previously known as Segmented Filamentous Bacteria (SFB). SFB can interact closely with villous epithelium in the terminal ileum forming long filaments and cross-talk intimately with the host immune system. They were present only in mice with Th17 cell-inducing microbiota, such as C57BL/6 mice from Taconic Farms, however, not detected in mice without Th17 cell-inducing microbiota, including C57BL/6 mice from Jackson Laboratory (Ivanov, 2010).
Lactobacillus reuteri group This group contains Lactobacillus reuteri that was reported to ameliorate autism model in mouse (Sgritta et al., 2019).
Bacteroides acidifaciens group This group contains Bacteroides acidifaciens that was reported to gain less weight and fat mass than the control so that it can be a therapeutic candidate for obesity (Yang et al., 2017).
Turicibacter This genus was reported as characteristic of mice when comparing shotgun metagenomic datasets of human and mouse feces (Nguyen et al., 2015).
