The bacterium has a possible obesogenic potential but the underlying mechanism of this observed effect in mice are unclear. It is suggested that this microbe under a high-fat diet helps to reinforce the sugar and fat absorption. The associated higher intake of energy-supplying nutrients makes the fat grow faster - a factor of obesity.
