- ... AIM: To examine the role of the Lactobacillus reuteri 100‐23C frc gene product in oxalate metabolism, host colonization and the acid stress response. METHODS AND RESULTS: Genes encoding putative formyl‐CoA transferase (frc) and oxalyl‐CoA decarboxylase (oxc) enzymes are present in the genome sequences of Lact. reuteri strains. Two strains isolated from humans harboured an IS200 insertion sequence ...

- ... The role of genes involved in sucrose catabolism was investigated with a view to designing effective prebiotic substrates to encourage the growth of Bifidobacterium in the gut. Two gene clusters coding for sucrose utilisation in Bifidobacterium longum NCC2705 were identified in the published genome. The genes encoding putative sucrose degrading enzymes, namely, the scrP (sucrose phosphorylase) and ...
