Altitudinal variation of the gut microbiota in wild house mice

Suzuki, Taichi A.; de Mello Martins, Felipe; Nachman, Michael W.

Description

The maintenance of oxygen homeostasis in the gut is critical for the maintenance of a healthy gut microbiota. However, few studies have explored how the concentration of atmospheric oxygen affects the gut microbiota in natural populations. High‐altitude environments provide an opportunity to study the potential effects of atmospheric oxygen on the composition and function of the gut microbiota. Here, we characterized the caecal microbial communities of wild house mice (Mus musculus domesticus)...[Show more]
