Characterizing the mucin-degrading capability of the human intestine microbiota


We recognized 4385 human intestine microbial genomes harboring not less than one gene copy of a mucin-degrading GH household. We discovered one genus within the Verrucomicrobia and Lentisphaerae phyla, 12 completely different genera within the Actinobacteria and Proteobacteria phyla, 11 genera in Bacteroidetes, and 42 genera within the Firmicutes phylum (Fig. 1A). Within the Verrucomicrobia phylum, Akkermansia was the only genus (Fig. 1B). Likewise, inside the Lentisphaerae phylum, Victavallales was the one genus (Fig. 1C). Within the Actinobacteria phylum, Bifidobacterium had the best illustration, with 13 Bifidobacteria genera recognized, adopted intently by Actinomyces (11 genera), Microbacterium (4 genera), and Streptomyces (4 genera) (Fig. 1D). Within the Bacteroidetes phylum, we noticed excessive illustration of Bacteroides (14 genera), Alistipes (7) and Prevotella (5) (Fig. 1E). Inside Proteobacteria, we noticed Serratia (5 genera), Raoultella (4), Mixta (4) and Enterobacter (4) at comparatively comparable ranges (Fig. 1F). A number of genera had been recognized within the Firmicutes phylum, with essentially the most ample microbes being Streptococcus (17 genera), Clostridium (10), Enterococcus (9), Lactobacillus (9), Bacillus (6), Paenibacillus (6), Staphylococcus (6), Blautia (5), Ruminococcus (5), amongst others (Fig. 1G).

Human intestine microbes harboring mucin related glycosyl hydrolases (GHs) are properly distributed among the many bacterial phyla. (A) Distribution of genera inside every micro organism phlya that possess mucin-related GHs. Distribution of genera inside (B) Verrucomicrobia, (C) Lentisphaerae, (D) Actinobacteria, (E) Bacteroidetes, (F) Proteobacteria and (G) Firmicutes phlya that harbor not less than one mucin-related GH.

To entry mucin glycans, intestinal microbes should possess mucin-degrading glycosyl hydrolases (Fig. 2A)2. Launched mucin glycan oligosaccharides can then be used to assist the expansion of micro organism. Given the prominence of Akkermansia as a mucin-degrading genus, we first analyzed the genomes of human intestine microbes A. glycaniphila and A. muciniphila (Fig. 2B). The one out there genome of A. glycaniphila contained a least one gene copy of GH33 (sialidase), GH16 (endo-acting O-glycanase), GH29 (fucosidase), GH95 (fucosidase), GH20 (galactosidase), GH2 (galactosidase), GH35 (galactosidase), and GH84 (N-acetyl-glucosaminidases). Equally, all of the A. muciniphila genomes contained a least one gene copy of GH33, GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH35 and GH84, in addition to GH89, indicating that A. muciniphila can cleave sialic acid, fucose, galactose, and N-acetylglucosamine. Nearer examination of the Akkermansia genomes revealed that the one genome of A. glycaniphila had six gene copes of GH33 and all 95 of the A. muciniphila genomes contained 2–4 genes copies of GH33 (Fig. 2C), indicating that Akkermansia spp. have the capability to take away sialic acid and provoke mucin-degradation. The GHs with the most important gene copy vary (6–13 gene copies) was GH20, a household containing β-N-acetyl-glucosaminidases (Desk 1). No Akkermansia genomes contained GH42, 98, 101, 129 or 85, suggesting that Akkermansia is unable to degrade N-acetyl-galactosamine. To substantiate the capability of A. muciniphila to degrade intestinal mucus, we grew A. muciniphila ATCC BAA-835 is a chemically outlined media ZMB1 missing glucose, containing 100 mM glucose or containing 1 mg/mL porcine intestinal mucus (Fig. 2D). As anticipated, A. muciniphila had restricted development in ZMB1 with or with out glucose however exhibited sturdy development in media with porcine intestinal mucus. These findings complement our genome evaluation of A. muciniphila ATCC BAA-835 (the BAA-835 genome evaluation is discovered within the second column from the appropriate in Fig. 2C). Moreover, varied A. muciniphila strains had been additionally examined to showcase the range of GH profiles throughout the genus, which helps the power of this species to degrade mucins.

Subsequent, we examined Victavallales bacterium within the Lentisphaerae phylum (Fig. 2E). Genome evaluation revealed the same GH profile to Akkermansia, with genes for GH33, GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH35, and GH89, suggesting that Victavallales bacterium might enzymatically cleave sialic acid, fucose, galactose, and N-acetyl-glucosamine. Apparently, Victavallales additionally harbored gene copies of GH42 and GH129, GHs not present in Akkermansia. The presence of GH129 signifies that Victavallales bacterium can launch N-acetyl-galactosamine, a glycan which Akkermansia will not be in a position to cleave. Victavallales bacterium possessed 4 genes copies of GH33 and 19 gene copies of GH2, which accommodates β-galactosidases. Though little data is obtainable for Victavallales bacterium, the genome evaluation reveals that Victavallales bacterium might degrade mucins.

Inside the Actinobacterium phylum, we recognized a number of genera harboring mucin-degrading GHs, together with Actinomadura, Actinomyces, Bifidobacteria, Streptacidiphilus and Streptomyces species (Fig. 3A). We noticed that 3 of the 4 Actinomadura spp. had 1 gene copy of GH33, in addition to gene copies of GH16, GH20, GH2, GH35, GH84 and GH89, suggesting the power of Actinomadura spp. to take away sialic acid, galactose and N-acetyl-glucosamine (Fig. 3B). We discovered that each one the genomes of Actinomyces israelii, A. naeslundii, A. viscosus and A. weissii, in addition to 5 of the 7 genomes of undefined Actinomyces spp. contained 2–3 gene copies of GH33. Actinomyces members additionally contained gene copies for GH16, GH29, GH20, GH2, GH35, GH42, and GH101. This glycosyl hydrolase profile signifies the Actinomyces spp. can probably cleave all mucin glycans.

(A) Warmth map of the Actinobacteria genomes which have not less than one gene copy of a mucin-associated GH 33, 16, 29, 95, 20, 2, 35, 42, 98, 101, 129, 89, 85, and 84. (B) Warmth map displaying the gene copy variety of mucin-associated GHs within the strains of Actinomadura and Actinomyces, (C) Bifidobacteria, particularly B. bifidum and B. breve, (D) B. longum (Bl), B. longum subsp. infantis (Bli), B. longum subsp. longum (Bll), B. longum subsp. suillum (Bls), and B. scardovii, (E) Streptacidiphilus and Streptomyces species, and (F) Streptomyces species. (G) Progress evaluation of Bifidobacterium dentium ATCC 27678, B. longum subsp. infantis ATCC 15697, B. bifidum ATCC 29521, B. longum ATCC 55813, and B. angulatum ATCC 27535 in a chemically outlined media ZMB1 missing glucose (media management), with glucose (constructive management), or missing glucose and supplemented with 1 mg/mL porcine intestinal MUC2. Progress was measured by inspecting the optical density at 600 nm (OD600nm) after in a single day incubation.

In Bifidobacterium (Fig. 3C), we discovered that each one 11 genomes of B. bifidum had 1–3 gene copies of GH33 and all genomes had GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH42, GH101, GH129, GH89 and GH84. Moreover, 8 of the 11 B. bifidum genomes had one gene copy of GH16. These GH profiles are per earlier research which determine B. bifidum as a mucin degrading microbe since it could possibly take away all mucin glycans20,22. Inside the 44 B. breve genomes, we discovered that 41 genomes had one gene copy of GH33 and the vast majority of strains had GH95, GH20, GH2, GH42, and GH129, protecting all mucin glycan buildings (Fig. 3C). B. longum had way more variability when it comes to mucin-degrading GHs (Fig. 3D). Solely 11 of the 54 genomes contained GH33, the vast majority of which belonged to the B. longum subspecies infantis subgroup. Variable presence for GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH42, GH101, GH129 and GH85 was recognized, with genomes harboring 0–5 gene copies. In distinction, B. angulatum solely possessed 2 mucin-associated GHs: GH2 and GH42, suggesting that this species is probably going unable to extensively degrade mucins. These information point out that mucin degradation is species dependent in Bifidobacteria.

Inside the two genomes of Streptacidiphilus spp. (Fig. 3E), we discovered that one of many two genomes had one gene copy of GH33 (sialidase), however each genomes had 10 gene copies of GH16 (endo-O-glycanase) in addition to the genes for GH20, GH35, and GH42 (galactosidases). Commensal Streptomyces lavendulae, S. lividans, and S. pactum genomes contained GH33, GH16, GH95, GH2, GH35, GH42, and variable presence of GH101, 89 and 84. Among the many 113 undefined Streptomyces spp. genomes (Fig. 3E,F), we discovered that 80 genomes had 1–5 gene copies of GH33, and the vast majority of strains had gene copies for GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH35, GH42 and GH84. Streptomyces spp. had a number of copies of GH2, with some strains possessing 10 gene copies. These information recommend that Streptomyces species are properly tailored to take away sialic acid, fucose, galactose, and N-acetyl-glucosamine.

To substantiate our genome findings, we additionally examined the expansion of key Bifidobacteria in ZMB1 with or with out glucose or intestinal mucus (Fig. 3G). Our genome evaluation revealed that B. dentium ATCC 27678 and B. angulatum ATCC 27535 didn’t possess GH33 and had solely 2–3 mucin-associated GHs, whereas B. longum and B. bifidum had a number of gene copies of GH33 and different mucin-degrading GHs. In our development evaluation, we didn’t detect development above the ZMB1 media baseline when intestinal mucus was added, indicating that these species can’t degrade intestinal mucus to make use of as a carbon supply. In distinction, B. longum subsp. infantis ATCC 15697, B. longum ATCC 55813, and B. bifidum ATCC 29521 had enhanced development when mucus was current, indicating that these strains can degrade mucins.

Evaluation of genomes inside the Bacteroidetes phylum revealed mucin degrading GHs in Alistipes, Alloprevotella, Bacteroides, Fermentimonas, Parabacteroides, Prevotella and Phocaeicola species (Fig. 4A). Solely 2 of the 5 Alistipes spp. genomes had one gene copy of GH33, however all genomes had GH20 and GH2 (galactosidase) and most genomes had GH16 (endo-O-glycanase) and GH29 (fucosidase) (Fig. 4B). The one genome of Alloprevotella had GH33, GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH89, GH85 and GH84, yet one more GH household than Akkermansia, probably indicating that this microbe might be a mucin-degrader. The one genome of Fermentimonas caenicola additionally had gene copies of GH33, GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, and GH42. Though there are few reviews on this microbe, the GH profiles recommend that this Fermentimonas caenicola is also a mucin degrader. In keeping with the literature, we discovered a big repertoire of GHs concerned in mucin degradation within the Bacteroides spp. genomes (Fig. 4C). We discovered that 3 of the 4 B. caccae genomes had 2–3 gene copies of GH33 and all genomes had gene copies of GH16 (endo-O-glycanase), GH95 (fucosidase), GH2 (galactosidase), and 84 (N-acetyl-glucosaminidases). Moreover, 3 of the 4 genomes had gene copies for GH29, GH20, and GH35 households. The entire two B. cellulosilyticus genomes harbored GH33, GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH35, GH42 and GH89. Much like B. cellulosilyticus, all six of the B. ovatus genomes, the one B. dorei and B. intestinalis genome and all 7 of the B. thetaiotaomicron genomes had GH33, GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH35, GH42, and GH89 gene copies. The B. thetaiotaomicron genomes additionally possessed GH84. B. fragilis had 16 of the 18 genomes with gene copies for GH33, however all B. fragilis genomes harbored GH16, GH29, GH20, GH2, GH35, GH89 and GH84. Moreover, 17 of 18 of the genomes additionally had GH95. We additionally examined 7 undefined Bacteroides spp., and located gene copies of GH33, GH16, GH29, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, and GH84 (Fig. 4D). All B. uniformis members additionally had 1 gene copy of GH42 and B. vulgatus had 1 gene copy of GH42 and GH89. B. xylanisolvens genomes mirrored the opposite Bacteroides spp., with all 6 genomes harboring GH33, GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH45, GH42 and 5 of the 6 genomes containing GH89. These information assist the notion that many Bacteroides members are mucin-degraders.

(H) Progress evaluation of Bacteroides vulgatus ATCC 8482, B. thetaiotaomicron ATCC 29148, B. fragilis MGH 10513, Prevotella merdae MGH 10511, and Prevotella copri DSMZ 18205 in a chemically outlined media ZMB1 missing glucose (media management), with glucose (constructive management), or missing glucose and supplemented with 1 mg/mL porcine intestinal MUC2. Progress was measured by inspecting the optical density at 600 nm (OD600nm) after in a single day incubation.

Inside the 16 Prevotella genomes (Fig. 4E), we discovered that the one P. copri and three P. jejuni genomes all had genes copies for GH33, GH16, GH29, GH85, GH20, and GH2. P. jejuni additionally had 1–3 gene copies of GH85 and GH84. Moreover, within the 12 P. melaninogenica genomes we discovered that 11 of the 12 had GH33 genes, whereas all of the P. melaninogenica genomes had 1–4 gene copies of GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH85, and GH84. These information point out that almost all P. melaninogenica are properly tailored to cleave sialic acid, fucose, galactose, and N-acetyl-glucosamine. The Parabacteroides genomes mirrored the Prevotella spp. mucin-degrading GHs, with all genomes harboring GH33, GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH35 and GH84 (Fig. 4F). As well as, inside Bacteroidetes we discovered that each one the 16 Phocaeicola spp. genomes contained genes for GH33, GH16, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH35, GH89 and GH84. We noticed that 15 of the 16 Phocaeicola spp. genomes additionally had one gene copy of GH42 (Fig. 4G). We noticed a number of gene copies of GH2 in Bacteroidetes. B. cellulosilyticus possessed essentially the most GH2 gene copies, with 44 gene copies in whole. To substantiate the mucin-degrading capability of B. vulgatus, B. fragilis, and B. thetaiotaomicron, we grew B. vulgatus ATCC 8482, B. fragilis MGH 10513 and B. thetaiotaomicron ATCC 29148 in ZMB1 with or with out glucose or intestinal mucus (Fig. 4H). As anticipated, every of those microbes grew in ZMB1 missing glucose supplemented with intestinal mucus, per earlier literature displaying these microbes can degrade mucins13,14. We additionally grew Prevotella copri DSMZ 18205 and Parabacteroides merdae MGH 10511 to evaluate the power of those Prevotella strains to develop within the presence of mucus. P. merdae didn’t develop in mucus, which was per our evaluation which confirmed no gene copies of GH33. Apparently, though the one genome of P. copri in our evaluation had GH33 expression and different mucin-degrading GHs, our P. copri DSMZ 18205 pressure didn’t develop in ZMB1 missing glucose with mucus, suggesting that development is perhaps pressure particular.

In comparison with the mucin-degrading microbes recognized in different phyla, we noticed far fewer mucin-degrading GHs within the Proteobacteria phylum, with solely 3–4 GHs households present in Klebsiella, Mixta and Enterobacter spp. (Fig. 5A). All 46 of the Klebsiella aerogenes genomes had one gene copy of GH33 (sialidase) and 1–2 gene copies of GH2 (galactosidase). Ten of the 46 Okay. aerogenes genomes additionally had expression of GH42 (galactosidase) and 41 of the genomes had 1–2 gene copies of GH20 (galactosidase), suggesting the power of those strains to take away galactose residues (Fig. 5B). Equally, all 23 undefined Klebsiella spp. genomes had 1–3 gene copies of GH2, however solely 13 of the 23 genomes had GH33, 14 genomes had GH42 genes and three of the genomes had GH20 (Fig. 5C). No different mucin-degrading GHs genes had been noticed. Of the 4 Mixta spp., which incorporates M. calida and M. intestinalis, we discovered that each one three genomes had 1–2 gene copies of GH33, GH20 and GH2, however no different mucin-related GHs had been recognized (Fig. 5D). We noticed giant variation within the 8 Serratia fonticola genomes. Solely one of many genomes had GH33, 6 genomes had GH16, 7 genomes had GH20 and all 8 genomes had GH2 gene copies. Within the Enterobacter genera, solely 15 of the 73 E. cloacae genomes had one gene copy of GH33, though many of the strains had GH20 and GH2 gene copies (Fig. 5E). Equally, solely 5 of the 36 undefined Enterobacter spp. had GH33, whereas nearly all of the strains had GH20 and GH2 (Fig. 5F). Progress evaluation of E. coli Nissle 1917 in ZMB1 with or with out mucus, which was not one of many E. coli with GH33 expression in our genome evaluation, confirmed the shortcoming of this species to make use of mucus as the only carbon supply (Fig. 5G). These information recommend that commensal Proteobacteria are far much less adept at degrading mucin than their intestine microbiota counterparts.

Progress was measured by inspecting the optical density at 600 nm (OD600nm) after in a single day incubation.

Lastly, we examined the Firmicutes phylum and located that Abiotrophia, Blautia, Enterococcus, Paenibacillus, Ruminococcus, Streptococcus, and Viridibacillus species harbored a number of mucin-degrading GHs (Fig. 6A–C). The one genome of Abiotrophia defectiva had one gene copy of GH33 and 1–2 gene copies of GH29, GH20, GH2, GH35, GH101, and GH85. Inside Blautia, B. coccoides and B. hansenii had one gene copy of GH33 and genes for GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH101, GH85 and GH84 (Fig. 6D). In distinction, B. obeum, B. producta and undefined Blautia spp. had no gene copies of GH33, however did have variable gene copies (0–20) of GH16, GH29, GH20, GH2, GH35, and GH42, indicating the power to take away fucose and galactose. Among the many Enterococcus strains, only one of the 4 E. casseliflavus strains, 1 of the 4 E. durans strains, 2 of the 4 E. gallinarum, and 1 of the 4 undefined Enterococcus spp. possessed GH33. Variable numbers of gene copies had been noticed in GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH35, GH42 and GH85. In Paenibacillus (Fig. 6E), we noticed that P. barcinonensis and P. lautus genomes had one gene copy of GH33 and each genomes harbored GH16, GH29, GH95, GH2, and GH35, whereas P. lautus additionally had gene copies for GH20 and GH85. Of the 29 genomes of undefined Paenibacillus spp., we discovered that solely 4 strains had GH33, however the majority of strains had gene copies of GH16, GH29, GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH35 and GH42, suggesting that Paenibacillus spp. can take away fucose and galactose. We noticed that each one three Ruminococcus gnavus genomes had one gene copy of GH33, whereas undefined Ruminococcus spp. and R. torques didn’t harbor GH33 (Fig. 6F). Most Ruminococcus strains possessed GH29, GH85, GH2 and GH42. Among the many streptococci, we discovered that each one 8 S. intermedius genomes contained GH33, GH29, GH20, GH2, GH35, and GH85 (Fig. 6G). We additionally noticed that 6 of the 9 S. mitis spp. had GH33 and most strains had gene copies of GH29, GH95, GH20, GH2, GH35 and GH85. Just one genome was out there for Viridibacillus spp. and this genome had GH33 and GH35.

Progress was measured by inspecting the optical density at 600 nm (OD600nm) after in a single day incubation.

Pathogenic Clostridium spp., such C. perfringens, have beforehand been proven to degrade mucins35, however little data exists on mucin degradation by commensal Clostridium spp. Of the 14 C. butryicum genomes, we discovered that solely one of many genomes harbored GH33 and not one of the C. sporogenes or undefined Clostridium spp. possessed GH33 (Fig. 6H). In comparison with different species, commensal Clostridium spp. had just a few mucin-associated GHs, together with GH16, GH95, and GH42. These profiles recommend that commensal Clostridium spp. are unlikely to be concerned in substantial mucin degradation. Primarily based on our genome evaluation, we predicted that commensal Clostridium spp. couldn’t degrade intact mucus and use mucus to boost development. To handle this query, we examined the expansion of a number of Clostridium spp., together with C. butryicum CB, C. symbiosum ATCC 14940, C. inoculum ATCC 14501, C. clostridiforme ATCC 25532, and C. sporogenes DSMZ 795 in media with or with out mucus (Fig. 6I). In keeping with our evaluation, not one of the Clostridium spp. had enhanced development with mucus. Our genome evaluation indicated that Blautia coccoides possessed a number of GHs concerned in mucin degradation and we predicted that this pressure could be able to utilizing mucin glycans as the only carbon supply. Much like our GH profile, we discovered that B. coccoides had statistically vital development with mucus in comparison with media with out mucus. Lastly, we examined Lactobacillus, which based on our genome evaluation solely have 1–4 mucin-associated GHs and don’t harbor GH33. We grew Lactobacillus gasseri ATCC 33323, L. johnsonii ATCC 33200, L. brevis ATCC 27305, and L. acidophilus ATCC 4796 in media with and with out mucus and located that mucus didn’t improve the expansion of many Lactobacillus spp. (Fig. 6J). These information present a complete evaluation of mucin-associated GH profiles inside commensal intestine microbes and spotlight that solely particular intestine strains have mucin-degrading capability.
