Access from EThOS:
It is generally accepted that bacteria belonging to the Atopobium cluster are predominant members of the human gastrointestinal (GI) microbiota with Collinsella and Eggerthella species isolated from human faeces. However, a relative paucity of information is available regarding the composition of this population of the human GI microbiota and its role in host health. The overall aim of this study was to examine the diversity and dynamics of the Atopobium cluster in the faecal microbiota of healthy human adults and to further characterize members of this population, including differentiation of Eggerthella lenta and related isolates from human clinical and faecal samples.
