Study TitleLuminal succinate in UC-HMA (human microbiota-associated) mice.
Study TypeMS analysis
Study SummaryPatients with ulcerative colitis (UC) are known to be at higher risk for Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) infection (CDI), and CDI in UC patients is recognized as a major clinical problem because it worsens UC outcome. In order to assess the role of gut dysbiosis, seen in UC patients, we have established a human microbiota-associated mouse model in which germ-free mice are colonized with gut microbiota from UC patients. Utilizing this model, we found that UC microbiota colonized HMA mice (UC-HMA mice) were susceptible to CDI. To address the mechanism by which UC-HMA mice are unable to acquire the colonization resistance against C. difficile, we analyzed the luminal metabolites in UC-HMA mice, especially in succinate which is a crucial metabolite doe the growth of C. difficile.
