Increased Gut Permeability and Microbiota Change Associate with Mesenteric Fat Inflammation and Metabolic Dysfunction in Diet-Induced Obese Mice

Figure 4

Gut microbiota composition in control and high saturated fat diet (HFD) fed mice.

A: Relative abundance of main genera in fecal samples from control (open bars) and HFD (closed bars) mice (n = 16 per group). Data are shown as mean ± SEM. ***P<0.001, ** P<0.01 and *P<0.05 compared to control. Correlations between the abundance of Lactobacillus (B) and Oscillibacter (C) and weight changes. Gut microbiota profile was determined by metagenomic pyrosequencing from bacterial lineages in fecal samples.
