A new Chlamydiales-specific real-time PCR targeting the conserved 16S rRNA gene was developed and can detect at least five DNA copies and show very high specificity without cross-amplification from other bacterial clade DNA.

Probiotic yogurt and acidified milk similarly reduce postprandial inflammation that is associated with a HFM while inducing distinct changes in the gut microbiota of healthy men, which could be relevant for dietary treatments that target 'low-grade' inflammation.

A role for ticks in the transmission of and as a reservoir for these emerging pathogenic Chlamydia-related bacteria is suggested and a high level of biodiversity was observed, since six of the nine families belonging to the Chlamydiales order were detected.

The results suggested that DIO resistance in Klb-/- mice is caused by high levels of DCA, signaling through the TGR5 receptor, and demonstrated that gut microbiota can regulate host thermogenesis via conversion of primary into secondary BA.

Core-genome phylogeny confirmed the current M. kansasii species to be polyphyletic and proposed new species names that suggest the attenuated pathogenicity of the other subtypes, as well as proposing a new species-level lineage based on the genomic data but no strain was available.
