Peanut skin extract ameliorates the symptoms of type 2 diabetes mellitus in mice by alleviating inflammation and maintaining gut microbiota homeostasis

Figure 7. Results of PICRUST function analysis for gut microbiota of type 2 diabetic mice after administering PSE. The relative abundance changes of KEGG pathways at level 2 (A) and level 3 (B, C) with PICRUST analysis. Each value was expressed as the mean ± SEM of 7 mice. #, ##, and ### represent significant difference compared to the normal control group at p < 0.05, p < 0.01, and p < 0.001, respectively. *, **, and *** indicate significant difference compared to the DM group at p < 0.05, p < 0.01, and p < 0.001, respectively.
