Abstract

Recently, several studies have indicated that the intestinal microbiota can be regulated by the individual attributes, and even the alternation of circadian rhythm. Inspired by this, we speculated that seasonal variation might also have some effect on the intestinal microbiota. A total of 11 Sprague-Dawley male rats, weighing 250-280 g, were divided into summer group (n = 5) and winter group (n = 6). Cages were individually ventilated at 20 ± 2 °C and 45-65% relative humidity with a circadian rhythm of 12/12 h. After 1 week of adaptively feeding, mucosal contents of jejunum, terminal ileum, and ascending colon were collected and analyzed by 16S rRNA Gene Amplicon Pyrosequencing. The results showed that intestinal microbiota of rats for the same strain were affected by season change under the same feeding condition and living environment. We should take seasonal factor into account in the future experimental design based on intestinal microbiome.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 17 March 2018.
All research outputs
#3,659,873
of 12,662,942 outputs
Outputs from Current Microbiology
#283
of 1,398 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#101,692
of 274,185 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current Microbiology
#11
of 39 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,662,942 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 70th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,398 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 274,185 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 39 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its contemporaries.
