Change In Nutrient Load Has Prompt Effect On Gut Bacterial Community Structure

May 4, 2011: 12:08 PM EST
Researchers have found that change in nutrient load can have immediate impact on the gut (fecal) bacterial community structure. The study focused on how gut bacterial community structure reacts to changes in the nutrient load in lean and fat subjects, as well as on the possible correlation between the subjects' microbiota and the efficacy of dietary energy harvest. Pyrosequencing bacterial 16S ribosomal RNA genes present in the feces of study subjects enabled researchers to study dynamic changes in gut microbiota during changes in caloric content of diets.
