Structural and functional changes of gut microbiota in ovariectomized rats and their correlations with altered bone mass

Figure 3. Beta diversity assessment and ecological difference analyses after ovariectomy. Principal coordinate analysis of 16S sequences using unweighted (A) and weighted (B) UniFrac showed distinct separation at different weeks following ovariectomy. Unweighted (C) and weighted (D) UniFrac hierarchical clustering trees also showed different GM composition. The common and characteristic phylum was obtained at OTU=0.03 (E).
