The gastrointestinal tract is continuously in contact with commensal bacteria that are composed of more than 500 different species, and has an important role in human nutrition and health, by promoting nutrient supply, preventing pathogen colonization and shaping and maintaining normal mucosal immunity. The present review demonstrates the distribution of the intestinal commensal bacteria Enterococcus spp. and the prevalence of Escherichia coli phylogenetic groups in animals and humans in… CONTINUE READING
