Group 1 (buccal mucosa, keratinized gingiva, and hard palate) demonstrated a predominance of organisms from the phylum Firmicutes (with a very high proportion [approximately 50%] from the genus Streptococcus) followed in relative abundance by the phyla Proteobacteria, Bacteroidetes and either Actinobacteria or Fusobacteria

The capability to grow on an N-deficient medium, positive acetylene reduction and 15N isotopic dilution assays, as well as possessing nifH gene gives strong support to the conclusion that the Actinobacteria fix atmospheric N to ammonia [27].

In another study, TLR2-deficient mice developed obesity, insulin resistance, and glucose intolerance, and the gut microbiomes of TLR2-deficient mice had a greater abundance of Firmicutes and fewer Actinobacteria of the genus Bifidobacterium (64).
Regarding the changes in soil moisture as well as soil C and N content, the mostly reduced microbial population in the burned stands could be soil micromycetes, thus soil bacteria and actinobacteria, in contrast, could be the most abundant in the burned stands (Klopatek et al.
