Summary of "A comparative study on the modulation of the gut microbiota of rats via the dietary intervention by different source of egg white proteins."

Gut microflora dysbiosis has been closely related to a variety of diseases including obesity and inflammatory bowel disease. Proteins and peptides in egg white have been found to alleviate inflammation, but the role played by the intestinal flora is still unclear. Using casein as a dietary protein control, we investigated the effects of diets composed of hen egg white, duck egg white, and preserved egg white on gut microbiota in the rat caecum.

Potential correlation between carbohydrate-active enzyme family 48 expressed by gut microbiota and the expression of intestinal epithelial AMP-activated protein kinase β.

The expression of the carbohydrate-active enzyme family and related genes is known to be influenced by the response of intestinal microbiota to dietary changes. However, it is uncertain whether this i...

Phytic acid actions on hepatic lipids and gut microbiota in rats fed a diet high in sucrose is influenced by dietary fat level.

Phytic acid (PA) or myoinositol intake was recently reported by our group to suppress hepatic lipogenic gene expression and modulate gut microbiota in rats fed a high-sucrose diet (HSC). The aim of th...

Higher Atazanavir plasma exposure in Rats is associated with Gut Microbiota Changes induced by Cotrimoxazole.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.

Inbred rats derived from Sprague-Dawley rats and used for the study of salt-dependent hypertension. Salt-sensitive and salt-resistant strains have been selectively bred to show the opposite genetically determined blood pressure responses to excess sodium chloride ingestion.

A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.

A study that compares a group of participants receiving an intervention with a similar group from the past who did not.

The study of the similarities and differences in the structures of homologous tissues across various species.
