- “a widespread mechanism of bacterial competition. CDI(+) bacteria deliver the toxic C-terminal region of contact-dependent inhibition A proteins (CdiA-CT) into neighboring target bacteria and produce CDI immunity proteins (CdiI) to protect against self-inhibition…the Ntox28 domain from Ruminococcus lactaris is significantly more thermostable” 
- “produces acetate, ethanol, succinate, lactate and formate, but very little butyrate, as end products of glucose metabolism.” Isolation and whole genome sequencing of a Ruminococcus-like bacterium, associated with irritable bowel syndrome.
- “Enterolactone production was linked to the abundance of two molecular species identified as Ruminococcus bromii and Ruminococcus lactaris…Flaxseeds increase enterolignan production”
