Fecal metabolites. Concentrations of metabolites in feces obtained from mice fed either the control diet (open circles) or the same diet supplemented with ACA (solid circles), at each of three study sites: TJL (bright pink), UM (blue), and UT (green). Lines span the interquartile range and the circle indicates the median. The summed concentration of acetate, butyrate, and propionate is plotted as “total SCFA”. The number of samples summarized in each panel is described in Table. 1. Symbols indicate the significance of a Mann-Whitney U test comparing control to ACA-treated mice. (:P<0.1,:P<0.05,:P<0.001)
