The current study found that one or more molecules produced by Clostridia
prevented the gut from absorbing fat.
Genomic determinants of sporulation in Bacilli and Clostridia
: towards the minimal set of sporulation-specific genes.
In Minelli et al.'s study of normal fecal flora in healthy females, Clostridia
were found in the intestinal flora of every subject.
Samples of feeder fish and the enclosure substrate were negative for Clostridia
species during anaerobic enrichment culture.
The notable major pathogens are classified on the basis of lesions and clinical signs into neurotoxic clostridia
As more is understood of the complex germination systems in clostridia
, it may be conceivable to formulate detailed strategies to interrupt this process, which would significantly benefit the food industry in controlling pathogenic clostridia
By inducing immune responses that prevent food allergens from entering the bloodstream, Clostridia
minimize allergen exposure and prevent sensitization -- a key step in the development of food allergies.
It is still unknown whether the decrease in Clostridia
is a cause or a consequence of chronic inflammation in IBD patients and in autoimmunity, but we can speculate that they are necessary for immune homeostasis, contributing to the suppression of autoimmunity and deleterious inflammation in humans.
Metabolic pathways of clostridia
for producing butanol.
BoNT is secreted in to food by toxigenic clostridia
growing in it under suitable conditions.
