Microbiota composition in colon and ileum of Ercc1−/Δ7 mice supplemented with Akkermansia muciniphila. a Alpha-diversity (Shannon entropy) measured in ileum and colon samples. Boxes extend from the 25th to 75th percentile, middle line represents median, and whiskers represent minimum and maximum values. b Relative abundance (%) of Akkermansia spp. in colonic content assessed by 16S rRNA sequencing. Data represent mean + SEM (c) Beta-diversity measured by Bray-Curtis Principal Coordinate Analysis in colon samples and (d) ileum samples. Between four and six mice per group were used for microbiota analysis
