(A) Phylum-Bacteroidetes (t-test, P<0.05); Class-Bacteroidia (t-test, P<0.05); Order-Bacteroidales (t-test, P<0.05); (B) Class-Bacilli (t-test, P<0.01); (C) Order-Lactobacillales (t-test, P<0.01); Family-Lactobacillaceae (t-test, P<0.01); Genus-Lactobacillus (t-test, P<0.01); (D) Order-Turicibacterales (t-test, P<0.01); Family-Turicibacteraceae (t-test, P<0.01); Genus-Turicibacter (t-test, P<0.01); (E) Family-Bacteroidaceae (t-test, P<0.05); Genus-Bacteroides (t-test, P<0.05); (F) Family-Clostridiaceae (t-test, P<0.05); (G) Family-Prevotellaceae (t-test, P<0.01); (H) Family-S24-7 (t-test, P<0.05); (I) Genus-Coprococcus (t-test, P<0.05). Data are relative abundances of certain bacterium (percentage of certain bacterium among all fecal bacteria in a mouse) and presented as mean ± SEM, n=12 for each group, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01.
