Microbial community composition. Fecal bacterial community composition in mice fed the control diet (circles) or the same diet supplemented with ACA (triangles). The two dominant principal coordinates, based on Bray-Curtis dissimilarities among community profiles, are plotted, and percent of variation explained by each is indicated in parentheses on the axes. The location of points in each panel is identical. Markers denote whether mice were treated (triangles) or controls (circles). In (a) points are colored by treatment: control mice (blue) and ACA-treated (gold), in (b) points are colored by site: TJL (bright pink), UM (blue), and UT (green), and in (c) points are colored by sex: male (light blue) and female (pink). The number of samples depicted in each panel is described in Table 1
