Shared Notes


  • [1.68
    - Ruminococcaceae (order Clostridiales) that are prominent producers of butyrate, decreased in relative abundance with a high-fat diet.
    - This decrease is particularly significant because Ruminococcaceae, making up ≈20% of gut bacteria in chow-fed OSA rats, decreased to ≈10% in high-fat OSA rats . Members of the order Clostridiales, other than Ruminococcaceae, also significantly decreased with high-fat diet.
