Exposure to aflatoxins causes liver fibrosis and hepatocellular carcinoma posing a significant health risk for human populations and livestock. To understand the mammalian systems responses to aflatoxin-B1 (AFB1) exposure, we analyzed the AFB1-induced metabonomic changes in multiple biological matrices (plasma, urine, and liver) of rats using (1)H NMR(More)
Faecal metabonomic NMR analysis plays an essential role in investigating the interactions between mammalian metabolism and symbiotic gut microbiota. However, the faecal metabolite extraction method remains to be optimised and standardised to take into consideration signal-to-noise ratios, pH and chemical shift consistency. In the current investigation, we(More)
Obesity resulting from interactions of genetic and environmental factors becomes a serious public health problem worldwide with alterations of the metabolic phenotypes in multiple biological matrices involving multiple metabolic pathways. To understand the contributions of gut microbiota to obesity development, we analyzed dynamic alterations in fecal(More)
