Abstract: The collection of microbes in our gastrointestinal tract, the gut microbiota, is an environmental factor that has profound impact on host health and disease. Bile acids are endogenous cholesterol-derived molecules that can be modified by the gut microbiota and function as signaling molecules in regulation of host metabolic processes. This thesis investigates the role of the gut microbiota on bile acid metabolism and signaling by comparing mice that lack microbiota with their conventionally-raise... more
