Effects of FXR-stimulatory metabolites on the phenotypes in diet-induced obesity mice. Mice fed with high fat diet (HFD) were treated bacterial culture supernatants (0.1 ml) by intragastric administration. (a) Body weight changes during the experimental period. (b) Liver weight changes after 10 weeks of the treatment. (c-g) Serum biochemical markers. Values are the mean ± SEM (standard diet-fed group, N = 3; HFD-fed group, N = 6). Differences compared to HFD-PBS group were calculated using Student’s t-test (*p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001)
