The development and industrial application of intestinal anaerbic bacteria is highly important in the munufacture of foodstuffs and medical products. We have conducted studies, screening anaerobic intestinal bacteria for acid and bile tolerance and for pathogens suppression in the intestine of swine. One such study was taxonomic in nature and dealt with the isolate's biochemical responses. The results indicated that the BSA-131 strian ioslated. which suppressed various pathogens (13 typical strains), were identified as Lactobacillus reuterii. The strain, which named L. reuterii BSA-131, was able to tolerate acid condition down to pH2 and could also tolerate bile at 5%. The strain exhibited resistance to a range of antibiotics including, cephalexin, erythromycin, flumequine, furazolidine, gentamycin, penicillin G, norfloxacin, spectinomycin, tetracycline, tiamuline, neomycin, chloramphenicol, kanamycin etc.
