The human distal gut microbiota contain more bacterial cells than all of our body's other microbial communities combined. More than 90% of phylogenetic types belong to two divisions, the Bacteroidetes and the Firmicutes, with the remaining types distributed among eight other divisions. In the human colon, Clostridium cluster XIVa is 1 of 2 abundantly represented clusters of Firmicutes.
Eubacterium spp., members of Clostridium closter XIVa, are a group of anaerobic Gram-positive nonspore-forming rods; strain ATCC 33656 is a human-gut derived bacterium. Germ-free mice were colonized with E.rectale or Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron, and then the response of the system as a whole to further colonization by the other bacterium were performed. These showed niche specialization and the importance of host glycans as nutrients to stabilize the ecosystem (adapted from PubMed 19321416).
