DCA modulates cecal microbiota.
Cohorts of 13 chicks were fed 0 or 1.5 g/kg DCA diets and infected with C. jejuni 81–176 as described in Fig 1. Cecal digesta samples were collected and DNA was isolated. Real time PCR was performed to calculate bacterial composition at phylum level. All graphs depict mean ± SEM. *, P<0.05. Results are representative of 2 independent experiments.
