The aim of this study was to describe the microbial communities along the gastrointestinal tract in healthy cats based on analysis of the 16S rRNA gene. Gastrointestinal content (i.e. content from the stomach, duodenum, jejunum, ileum, and colon) was collected from four healthy conventionally raised colony cats and one healthy specific pathogen-free (SPF) cat. Bacterial 16S rRNA genes were amplified using universal bacterial primers and analyzed by comparative sequence analysis. A total of 1008… CONTINUE READING
