• Oxalobacter formigenes is an oxalate-degrading anaerobic bacterium that colonizes the large intestines of numerous vertebrates, including humans. (
  • In enzymology, an oxalyl-CoA decarboxylase (OXC) (EC is an enzyme primarily produced by the gastrointestinal bacterium Oxalobacter formigenes that catalyzes the chemical reaction oxalyl-CoA ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } formyl-CoA + CO2 OXC belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the carboxy-lyases (decarboxylases), which cleave carbon-carbon bonds. (


  • OCHEK Ca sules of Oxalobacter, Lactobacillus & Bifidobacterium With FOS Indication - To lower down the concentration of oxalate ion in the body - the major reason. (
  • Oxalyl-CoA decarboxylase is extremely important for the elimination of ingested oxalates found in human foodstuffs like coffee, tea, and chocolate, and the ingestion of such foods in the absence of Oxalobacter formigenes in the gut can result in kidney disease or even death as a result of oxalate poisoning. (
