Fecal microbiota transplantation mitigates vaginal atrophy in ovariectomized mice

Gut microbiota analysis for mice received fecal microbiota and normal saline lavage. (A) Wayne diagram analysis based on OTU for OVX+FMT (n=11), OVX+NST (n=11), Sham+FMT (n=10) and Sham+NST (n=9) groups. (B) Shannon diversity index among OVX+FMT (n=11), OVX+NST (n=11), Sham+FMT (n=10) and Sham+NST (n=9) (one-way ANOVA, F3, 37=6.86, P=0.001) (C) Simpson diversity index among OVX+FMT (n=11), OVX+NST (n=11), Sham+FMT (n=10) and Sham+NST (n=9) groups (one-way ANOVA, F3, 37=8.35, PD, E) β-diversity analysis including PCA and OTU based PLS-DA for OVX+FMT (n=11), OVX+NST (n=11), Sham+FMT (n=10) and Sham+NST (n=9) groups. (F, G) Significant differences analysis among OVX+FMT (n=11), OVX+NST (n=11), Sham+FMT (n=10) and Sham+NST (n=9) groups by linear discriminant analysis Effect Size (LEfSe) analysis.
