Description

The sole species of the genus, Intestinibacter bartlettii is a fermenter 2. Cells are straight to slightly curved rods, which often form chains 3. Sugars and amino acids are utilised for growth under strictly anaerobic conditions 2. The in situ physiology of the genus in activated sludge has not been determined.
