High impact information on Spirochaetaceae

  • CP1 branched deeply among other spirochetal genera within the family Spirochaetaceae, and accordingly, it represents a separate genus within this family [1].
  • Cellular polysaccharide fractions of various representative members of genera of the family Spirochaetaceae were obtained by the ammonium hydroxide extraction method [2].
  • In frequency of occurrence, bifidobacteria increased significantly (p < 0.001) during lactosucrose administration, while Spirochaetaceae and lecithinase-negative clostridia decreased significantly (p < 0.05) on day 14 of lactosucrose administration compared to pre-administration [3].
