Turicibacter

RANK: Genus

TAXONOMY: Bacteria -> Terrabacteria group -> Firmicutes -> Erysipelotrichia -> Erysipelotrichales -> Erysipelotrichaceae -> Turicibacter

OVERVIEW:

Cells are irregularly shaped, nonbranching rods, 0.5–2.0 × 0.7–7.0 µm in size, chain-forming (up to 30 µm) Figure 266. Cells stain Gram-stain-positive. Anaerobic, nonsporeforming. Chemoorganotrophic, fermentative metabolism. Catalase-negative and oxidase-negative. Lactate is the main fermentation product.

This genus contains microbial species that can reside in the human gastrointestinal tract. [PMC 4262072]

Specific differences have been found in blood group A-secretors demonstrating higher abundances of members of the Turicibacter family. [PMCID: PMC5625272]
