HSD-signature microbiota requires constant exposure to high salt diet for its maintenance. a Experimental design. b Principal coordinate analysis (PCoA) of abundance Jaccard index from fecal microbiota composition data. c Summary of the relative microbial genera present in 99.9% of the community. Un. G (Unclassified Genus). d Relative abundance of Lactobacillus genus. e Total read count of each OTU present in the indicated donor fecal microbiota (in green triangles). Orange dots indicate the OTUs that were present in recipient mice at day 5 post-colonization. The horizontal dashed line separates the 15 most abundant OTUs from the others. f Body weight during DSS administration. g Macroscopic scores of DSS colitis at endpoint. h Colon length at endpoint
