Characteristics and Sites of Infection of Eubacterium
brachy, and Other Asaccharolytic Eubacteria.

Aerobic and facultative gram-negative microorganisms: Escherichia coli Haemophilus influenzae (Beta-lactamase negative isolates only) Klebsiella pneumoniae Moraxella catarrhalis Proteus mirabilis Anaerobic microorganisms: Bacteroides fragilis Bacteroides distasonis Bacteroides ovatus Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron Bacteroides uniformis Clostridium clostridioforme Eubacterium
lentum Peptostreptococcus species Porphyromonas asaccharolytica Prevotella bivia The following in vitro data are available, but their clinical significance is unknown.
coprostanoligenes, a small gram-positive and cholesterol-reducing anaerobe, promotes the conversion of cholesterol to coprostanol (Madden et al.

They conjecture that an evolutionary quantum leap happened after an archaebacterium swallowed a eubacterium
hongkongensis belongs to the intestinal flora, as do Bifidobacterium, Eggerthella, Eubacterium
, and Lactobacillus spp.
A total of 49 phylotypes were recovered, and 31% demonstrated sequence similarity to the genera Clostridium, 27% were closely related to Bacteroides, and 12% were related to the genera Eubacterium
Prebiotics uniformly stimulate the growth of endogenous Bifidobacterium species and augment populations of Eubacterium

limosum (ATCC 8486T), Uncultured bacterium clone PF6641 and Streptococcus lutetiensis (CIP 106849T).
dagger]) Other category includes Bifidobacterium (2), Brevibacterium (2), Actinomyces (1), Aureobacterium (1), Erysipelothrix (1), Eubacterium
(1), and Oerskovia spp.
biforme was used as the outgroup for all analysis.
For the remaining 22 reports of gram-positive bacilli, 16 were identified as Corynebacteriurn, 1 as Proprionobacterium, 1 as Clostridium, 1 as Eubacterium
, and 1 as Staphylococcus hominis; 1 was a mixed infection with gram-positive organisms, and 1 was an unidentified motile gram-variable bacillus.
