Sutterella is a genus of Gram-negative, anaerobic, nonspore-forming bacteria of the family Sutterellaceae which belongs to the class Betaproteobacteria; they were isolated from human faeces.[3] Sutterella cells were present in the intestines of children with autism, who also often suffer from digestive disturbances such as constipation and diarrhea, but absent from the intestines of children who did not have autism.[4][5][6]
