Blautia_A obeum
Blautia obeum is able to convert the bile acid taurocholate (TCA) into its components taurine and cholate (CA). This first step in the secondary bile acid pathway is the reason why B. obeum has a protective effect against cholera. Vibrio cholerae, the microbial agent behind cholera, relies on TCA to trigger the disease state.
