We studied the effect of dietary fat type, varying in polyunsaturated-to-saturated fatty acid ratios (P/S), on development of metabolic syndrome. C57Bl/6J mice were fed purified high-fat diets (45E% fat) containing palm oil (HF-PO; P/S 0.4), olive oil (HF-OO; P/S 1.1), or safflower oil (HF-SO; P/S 7.8) for 8 wk. A low-fat palm oil diet (LF-PO; 10E% fat) was used as a reference. Additionally, we analyzed diet-induced changes in gut microbiota composition and mucosal gene expression. The HF-PO… Expand
Trans-fatty acids alter the gut microbiota in high-fat-diet-induced obese rats
TLDR
It was found that the TFA/HF diets significantly induced obesity and changes in blood and brain physiological parameters of the rats, and significant differences were observed among clusters of orthologous group functional categories of the four dietary groups. Expand
Impact of dietary fatty acids on metabolic activity and host intestinal microbiota composition in C57BL/6J mice
TLDR
Data indicate that both the quantity and quality of fat have an impact on host physiology with further downstream alterations to the intestinal microbiota population, with a HF diet supplemented with flaxseed/fish oil positively shaping the host microbial ecosystem. Expand
A High-Fat Diet Differentially Affects the Gut Metabolism and Blood Lipids of Rats Depending on the Type of Dietary Fat and Carbohydrate
TLDR
A high-fat diet rich in fructose can unfavorably affect gut metabolism when unsaturated fats are predominant in the diet or the blood lipids when a diet is rich in saturated fats. Expand
Differential effects of coconut versus soy oil on gut microbiota composition and predicted metabolic function in adult mice
TLDR
Comparison of cecal microbiota of high-fat fed mice versus control mice indicated major changes that were shared between the HFC and the HFS diet, including the increase in Lactobaculum, Lutispora, and Syntrophomonas, while some other shifts were specifically associated to either coconut or soy oil. Expand
Overfeeding Polyunsaturated and Saturated Fat Causes Distinct Effects on Liver and Visceral Fat Accumulation in Humans
TLDR
It is concluded that overeating SFAs promotes hepatic and visceral fat storage, whereas excess energy from PUFAs may instead promote lean tissue in healthy humans. Expand
Increasing fat content from 20 to 45 wt% in a complex diet induces lower endotoxemia in parallel with an increased number of intestinal goblet cells in mice.
TLDR
Using complex HFD, no associations were observed between dietary lipid amounts and the magnitude of endotoxemia, inflammation, and physiological alterations developed, and results reveal the impact of the diet composition on intestinal goblet cells and mucus coat. Expand
Novel Organic Mineral Complex Prevents High-Fat Diet-Induced Changes in the Gut and Liver of Male Sprague-Dawley Rats
TLDR
Results indicate that OMC supplementation ameliorates glycosylation reactions and modifies HFD-induced alterations in the intestinal microbiota. Expand
Effect of vegetable oils with different fatty acid composition on high-fat diet-induced obesity and colon inflammation
TLDR
Interestingly, compared with olive oil and SO, PO provides better protection against high-fat diet-induced colon inflammation, suggesting that PO consumption helps manage inflammation-related diseases and provides omega-3 fatty acids needed by the body. Expand
The gut microbiota drives the impact of bile acids and fat source in diet on mouse metabolism
TLDR
Detrimental metabolic consequences of a diet enriched with lard and primary bile acids were dependent on microbial colonization of the host and were linked to hepatic lipid rearrangements and to alterations of dominant bacterial communities in the cecum. Expand
Dietary fat and gut microbiota interactions determine diet-induced obesity in mice
TLDR
It is proposed that an interaction of gut microbiota and cholesterol metabolism is essential for fat accretion in normal SPF mice fed cholesterol-rich lard as the main dietary fat source. Expand

The role of the small intestine in the development of dietary fat-induced obesity and insulin resistance in C57BL/6J mice
TLDR
During dietary fat-induced development of obesity and insulin resistance, substantial changes in gene expression in the small intestine are found, indicating modulations of biological processes, especially related to lipid metabolism. Expand
Hepatic and adipose tissue lipogenic enzyme mRNA levels are suppressed by high fat diets in the rat.
TLDR
It is concluded that dietary saturated fats fail to suppress hepatic de novo lipogenesis as effectively as polyunsaturated fats, which may have implications for the prevention of obesity in humans. Expand
Saturated, but not n-6 polyunsaturated, fatty acids induce insulin resistance: role of intramuscular accumulation of lipid metabolites.
TLDR
Results indicate that increasing dietary Sat induces insulin resistance with concomitant increases in muscle DAG, and diets rich in n-6 PUFA appear to prevent insulin resistance by directing fat into TAG, rather than other lipid metabolites. Expand

TLDR
It is found that conventionalization of adult germ-free (GF) C57BL/6 mice with a normal microbiota harvested from the distal intestine of conventionally raised animals produces a 60% increase in body fat content and insulin resistance within 14 days despite reduced food intake. Expand
Composition and energy harvesting capacity of the gut microbiota: relationship to diet, obesity and time in mouse models
TLDR
The relationship between the microbial composition and energy harvesting capacity is more complex than previously considered and the possibility of microbial adaptation to diet and time should be considered in future studies. Expand
Differential regulation of intestinal lipid metabolism-related genes in obesity-resistant A/J vs. obesity-prone C57BL/6J mice.
TLDR
The effects of high-fat (HF) feeding on gene expression in the small intestine and enzyme activities suggest that intestinal lipid metabolism is associated with susceptibility to obesity. Expand
Dietary fat, insulin sensitivity and the metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
Prevention of the metabolic syndrome has to be targeted by reducing the energy density of the habitual diet and improving insulin sensitivity and associated metabolic abnormalities through a reduction of dietary saturated fat, partially replaced, when appropriate, by monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Expand
High-fat diet determines the composition of the murine gut microbiome independently of obesity.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the importance of diet as a determinant of gut microbiome composition and suggest the need to control for dietary variation when evaluating the composition of the human gut microbiome. Expand
Mechanisms underlying the resistance to diet-induced obesity in germ-free mice
TLDR
GF animals are protected from diet-induced obesity by two complementary but independent mechanisms that result in increased fatty acid metabolism: elevated levels of Fiaf, which induces Pgc-1α; and increased AMPK activity. Expand
Comparison of the effects on insulin resistance and glucose tolerance of 6-mo high-monounsaturated-fat, low-fat, and control diets.
TLDR
A diet high in monounsaturated fat has a more favorable effect on glucose homeostasis than does the typical Western diet in the short term and may also be more beneficial than the official recommended low-fat diet during a period of weight regain subsequent to weight loss. Expand
