Circulating lipid levels of germ-free mice fed HFD and treated with CLOSPO_02757
KO Clostridium sporogenes
Summary Data Summary
Investigator Fischbach, Michael
Description The age of mice are under 18 weeks and all mice were given high fat diet
starting 12 weeks. The mice have adlib access to food and water. All the mice
(germ-free) were gavaged with a gut bacteria Clostridium sporogenes. The KO
strain is a mutant of C.sporogenes with a KO of CLOSPO_02757 and is incapable of
metabolizing branched chain amino acids. All the mice were fasted for 6 hrs and
a glucose tolerance test was performed before sac. The plasma was collected via
cardiac puncture and stabilized with EDTA. The mice were sacrified by carbon
