Abundant, Widespread Virus Discovered

“Given the virus’s abundance and how widespread it is, it is probably going to be very important for understanding the ecology of the human gut,”

Abundant, Widespread Virus Discovered

Scientists identify a bacteriophage that is highly abundant in the gut bacteria of people around the world.

By Jef Akst | July 29, 2014

SNIPPET:

Fecal samples from people in the United States, Europe, and Asia have revealed a new type of gut bacteriophage, called crAssphage, which infects Bacteroides, microbes linked to obesity and diabetes, according to a study published last week (July 24) in Nature Communications. The previously unknown virus may be among the most abundant in the human gut, and could impact one’s weight as a result of its effects on host bacteria.


PURTY LITTLE THING, AIN'T IT? :P

We suspect this virus is very important in regulating the number of these bacteria [the Bacteroides] in the intestine,” lead author Robert Edwards, a computational biologist at San Diego State University, told NPR’s Goats and Soda. “We’ve basically found it in every population we’ve looked at. If we tested Africans, we think we’d find it in them, too.”
