Abstract :

The article describes tools and a framework which allow the bacterial butyrate-producing community to be profiled in the context of animal health and disease. It develops tools for the analysis of butyrate-producing bacteria based on 12 putative but genes identified in the genomes of nine butyrate-producing bacteria obtained from the swine intestinal tract.Degenerate primers are designed to amplify the functional but genes and are tested by amplifying environmental but sequences from DNA and RNA extracted from swine colonic contents.
