What is Coprococcus eutactus? High and low values | Lab results explained

The abundance of Coprococcus eutactus is associated with greater bacterial gene richness in the gut.

Coprococcus is a genus of anaerobic cocci which are all part of the human faecal flora. Coprococcus includes those gram-positive, anaerobic cocci that actively ferment carbohydrates, producing butyric and acetic acids with formic or propionic and/or lactic acids. Fermentable carbohydrates are either required or are highly stimulatory for growth and continued subculture. The genus is bio-chemically closely related to Ruminococcus.

Coprococcus may be used as a microbial biomarker to assess the health of the human gastro-intestinal tract. Gut microorganisms maintain gastro-intestinal health and the mounting evidence of gastro-intestinal problems in autistic children makes a link between autism and intestinal microbiota highly probable.

– In IBS, reduced abundance reported (in association with elevated Ruminococcus spp.)

– In patients with Parkinson’s diseases reduced content of Coprococcus eutactus have been shown. [L]

– Coprococcus may be less prevalent in autistic children compared to neurotypical children; may be result of intestinal disaccharidase deficiencies common in autism.
