Microbiota composition in colonic biopsies of three patients with active ulcerative colitis and cecum content of parental HMA mice, a as measured by 16S sequencing. The composition of each sample is based on the RDP taxonomic assignment of the 16S rDNA sequences. The phylum and the genus level are shown for the most abundant bacterial groups. b The Chao1 diversity index of human biopsy samples (a, b and c) was compared with the diversity index of cecum contents of relevant mice (healthy aHMA, bHMA and cHMA) by two-tailed paired Student’s t test. The black line represent median and the red lines connect the related samples. c DGGE profiles of 16 s rRNA genes amplified from colonic biopsy lysates and cecum content of biopsy-colonized mice. Excised and successfully sequenced bands are identified with red numbers (19), see Table 1 for identification
