D. welbionis is a novel species of Ruminococcaceae. The cells are obligatory anaerobic, non-pigmented, non-spore forming, non-motile, and Gram-stain-negative. Cells form straight rods mainly 1.8-3.0μm but often form elongated rods whatever the growing phase. Colonies on solid modified YCFA after 72h of incubation at 37℃ under anaerobic conditions are punctiform, cream, translucent, circular, entire, slightly convex, and smooth. The type strain, J115T (=DSM 106889T=LMG 30601T) was isolated from a faecal sample from a healthy 25-year-old female in July 2017. It presents in 70% of the general population at a relatively high abundance (0-9%). Strain J115T produced acid from myo-inositol but not from Dglucose, D-ribose or D-xylose. Butyric acid was the major end-product of myo-inositol. The genomic DNA G+C content was 58.92 mol%. Strain J115T was also related to the not-yet-cultured bacterium Oscillospira guilliermondii (92-93%similarity). It is important to note that this bacterium has been grown in a well-defined medium suitable for use of the bacterium in humans. This makes it possible to bypass the difficulties previously faced in investigating A. muciniphila.
Recently, D. welbionis was also thought to have beneficial effects similar to those of A. muciniphila. Supplementation with live D. welbionis J115T (1.0×109 CFU daily) in mice, but not with the same pasteurized strain, induced a decrease in fat mass gain, insulin resistance, and white adipose tissue hypertrophy and inflammation. These results suggest that D. welbionis J115T directly and beneficially influences host metabolism and is a strong candidate for the development of next-generation beneficial bacteria targeting obesity and associated metabolic diseases.
