Dataset Details

Superfund Research Program

Title: 16S rDNA sequencing data of Ldlr-/- mouse gut microbiomes

Accession Number: E-MTAB-8798

Repository: ArrayExpress

Data Type(s): Gene Expression

Experiment Type(s): DNA-seq

Organism(s): Mus musculus

Summary: We have previously demonstrated that the gut microbiota can play a role in the pathogenesis of conditions associated with exposure to environmental pollutants. It is well accepted that diets high in fermentable fibers such as inulin can beneficially modulate the gut microbiota and lessen the severity of pro-inflammatory diseases. Therefore, we aimed to test the hypothesis that hyperlipidemic mice fed a diet enriched with inulin would be protected from the pro-inflammatory toxic effects of PCB 126.
