OVERVIEW:

'Sutterella' is a genus of Gram-negative, anaerobic, nonspore-forming bacteria of the family Sutterellaceae which belongs to the class Betaproteobacteria; they were isolated from human feces. Sutterella cells were present in the intestines of children with autism, who also often suffer from digestive disturbances such as constipation and diarrhea, but absent from the intestines of children who did not have autism.  Increased abundance of Sutterella spp. and Ruminococcus torques in feces of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The numbers of Sutterella spp. are elevated in feces of ASD children relative to controls, and that numbers of R. torques are higher in the children with ASD with a reported functional gastrointestinal disorder than those without such a disorder. [PMID: 24188502] Straight rod, 0.5–1 × 1–3 µm. Gram negative. Grows in a microaerophilic atmosphere (2% and 6% oxygen) or under anaerobic conditions. Isolated mainly from the intestinal tract and from infections of gastrointestinal origin. Urease negative. Oxidase negative. Indoxyl acetate negative. Reduces nitrate. Resistant to 20% bile disks. Asaccharolytic. Cannot reduce tetrazolium tetrachloride under aerobic conditions if formate and fumarate are added to the medium. May be resistant to metronidazole. Type species: Sutterella wadsworthensis

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