Age-related Prevalence of Methanomassiliicoccus Luminyensis in the Human Gut Microbiome

Bédis Dridi et al. APMIS.

Abstract

A 16S rDNA sequence-based investigation of methanogenic Archaea in the human stools found Methanobrevibacter smithii in 99.2% and Methanosphaera stadtmanae in 32.6%. The recently described Methanomassiliicoccus luminyensis found by others to be representative of a new order of methanogenic Archaea was found in 4% of stool specimens. The prevalence of M. luminyensis significantly increased with age, contrary to M. smithii and M. stadtmanae.
